Now we know what was next
So after Biden gave Ukraine those F-16's after Zelensky gave a pinky-swear that he wouldn't use them for bombing Russia, I asked what's next? Now we know. I's not like the Ukrainian military isn't being run out of the Pentagon.
Armed insurgents who crossed the border from Ukraine to launch attacks in Russia's Belgorod region have been defeated, Moscow says.
Villages in the border region were evacuated after coming under sustained shellfire.
Russia says that 70 of the attackers have been killed and insists the fighters are Ukrainian.
It;s a good thing we got that pinky-swear from Ukraine.
The two groups of anti-Putin Russian nationals, who are fighting in Ukraine as part of Kyiv’s defense forces, the Freedom for Russia Legion and Russian Volunteer Corps, claimed responsibility for the attack in Russian’s southwestern region of Belgorod, which borders north-eastern Ukraine.
“Residential and administrative buildings and civilian infrastructure were subjected to mortar and artillery fire. As a result of these criminal actions, several civilians were wounded,” Russia’s Investigative Committee said on Telegram as it announced an investigation into the attack.
...CNN’s Sam Kiley interviewed that same fighter in December, while the group was fighting for Ukraine against Russian attacks on the frontline city of Bakhmut.
It's not like no one could have predicted this. After all, we tried to assassinate Putin before.
I have to wonder about all of those U.S. special forces on the ground in Ukraine. What happens when one of them gets killed while invading Russia?
