Ukrainian and Russian officials agreed Sunday to meet near the Belarus border as Vladimir Putin provocatively placed his nuclear forces on high alert.
The meeting was confirmed by Ukraine’s presidential office in a message posted on the social media app Telegram.
As fighting raged near Ukraine’s two largest cities, both sides took provocative action that left the world increasingly on edge.
Putin instructed his defense officials to put Russia’s nuclear deterrent forces in a “special regime of combat duty” and a state of high alert. Protests against Russia’s aggression, meanwhile, spread on Moscow’s streets as thousands were reportedly arrested.
And Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky demanded Russia be stripped of its voting power as a member of the UN Security Council and filed a petition for an emergency hearing at the international body’s highest court.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
