Russian President Putin announced the execution of a military operation in Ukraine and warned other countries that any attempt to interfere would lead to "consequences they have never seen." This comes after Russian troops have moved into the Eastern part of Ukraine
Puten went on to say the attack was needed to protect civilians in eastern Ukraine – a claim U.S. intelligence had predicted he would falsely make to justify invasion.
Putin's announcement came as a shock to many, but U.S. intelligence has been warning for months that Russia was planning this move under false pretenses.
Unfortunately, Biden's attempts at getting Putin to stand down have been absolutely ineffectual.
Russia has been clear about their goals from the start: to occupy Ukraine and prevent it from joining NATO and Putin's announcement makes it abundantly clear that he has no intention of backing down.
Dark days lie ahead, as thousands will likely die if the Russia/Ukraine conflict escalates into a hot war.
