Russian forces launch full-scale invasion of Ukraine

Russia has launched an all-out invasion of Ukraine by land, air and sea, the biggest attack by one state against another in Europe since World War II and confirmation of the worst fears of the West.
The attacks began on Thursday after Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address that he had approved a “special military operation”. The move came after Moscow earlier recognised rebel-held territories in Luhansk and Donetsk and said they had asked for its “help”.
Russian missiles rained down on Ukrainian cities. Ukraine reported columns of troops pouring across its borders into the eastern Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, and landing by sea at the cities of Odesa and Mariupol in the south.
Russian troops attacked Ukraine from Belarus, as well as from Russia with Belarusian support. An attack was also being launched from the annexed Crimean Peninsula, Ukraine’s border guard service said.

    My heritage. My mother still has relatives outside of Kiev, but can’t get in touch because communications were blocked last night. I feel so much for these poor people, who just want to be left alone. I mean, don’t we all. War is never good.

      The Russians don’t want to exterminate Ukrainians. Just tell them to stay away from anti air and radar places any large government buildings, they will be fine

      @Raymond Chow NATO agression used as tool bybthe US to suffocsate Russia.And nobody mentiones the promises made to the Russians decades ago,that fex the promise that “NATO would not expand ONE INCH Eastwards”

    • Raymond Chow says:

      How about looking at why NATO is so agressive pushing the Russians to the brink. Russia is not going to sit and watch Yugoslavia 2.0 happening again.

    Never imagined we would see a major state versus state war in Europe after WW2. What a crazy time to live in.

      @BasketMan 25 it was the Japanese invasion of China that started ww2

      Hebrews

      12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

      Acts

      3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,

      James 2:24,26

      Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

      John

      3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

      3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

      3:19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

    • Andy Hughes says:

      @Tony Pham Only if the U.S. and NATO forces jump in.

      If they do, China will seize the opportunity to invade Taiwan and seize control of the South China Sea (because they know U.S. forces will be spread too thin to stop both).

      This is not just about Ukraine or Taiwan – it’s about taking apart U.S. imperial global domination.

    • Djoker Dominator says:

      You must have missed civil war of Yugoslavia

  5. Rob B says:

    The role of Russia’s social media influence on the pretense of this invasion is just horrifying. Along with the targeted cyber attacks on ATMs & Government websites preventing civilians from obtaining cash and documents to leave Ukraine. Yet they claim to not be targeting civilians.

  6. LordoftheCritics says:

    The Ukranians are politely buying food and essentials instead of panic robbing. You guys are great.

      @Balognamanforya That’s the scary truth. However, the Nukes actually are the part I worry the most of, but Russian State Sponsored Hackers

    • Balognamanforya says:

      @Cody Swindell Putin literally said that any other country that intervenes will be met with consequences that no one in history has witnessed before, basically means if NATO does send soldiers, nukes go flying. Shits crazy

    • Cody Swindell says:

      @Val Wilson NATO will only attack if Russia attacks a NATO country
