Russia is annexing Ukraine and the entire world is shook. Since Russia’s invasion, over 300 people have been injured and just over 130 have lost their lives, according to reports. It was also revealed that Russian military have assumed control of Chernobyl, and various international leaders, including President Joe Biden, have condemned the attack as unjustified.
Despite the fact that Ukrainian forces are vastly outmanned by Russian forces, Biden has maintained that the US military will not contribute troops to the battle. Vladimir Putin made a video in which he stated unequivocally that anyone who interferes with his intentions will face harsh repercussions.
Former President Donald Trump has been accused of colluding with Russia both during his campaign and throughout his time in the White House, claims he has denied. During a campaign event in Florida, the former president praised Putin for his military takeover of Ukraine and dubbed his recent measures as smart.
I mean, he’s taking over a country for $2 worth of sanctions. I’d say that’s pretty smart. He’s taking over a country — literally a vast, vast location, a great piece of land with a lot of people, and just walking right in.
Trump’s words outraged White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates, who blasted him in a scathing tweet. “Two nauseating, fearful pigs who hate what America stands for and whose every action is driven by their own weakness and insecurity, rubbing their snouts together and celebrating as innocent people lose their lives.” Meanwhile, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine has stated that they are killing the innocent and transforming peaceful cities into military targets.
