According to the wife of the jailed Belarus activist, Russia wants to make Ukraine another dependent dictatorship. That plan ousted Putin’s original puppet government, prior to Zelensky becoming President. Clearly, the Ukrainian people don’t want to be a Russian provincial satellite nation.
Putin can’t be thinking takeover of the hearts and minds of Ukrainians, when he’s committing Genocide? Like Hitler and Stalin, Putin’s imperialism is after Ukrainian land, only. He’s murdering innocent civilians, single family homeowners!
The Counteroffensive continues and Zelensky needs a weapon to destroy Russian armaments and their ability to rearm from Iran. Sanctions are not sufficient!
Iran’s backing for the Russian military is likely to grow in coming months and Moscow will probably offer Tehran an “unprecedented” level of military support in return, the UK Ministry of Defence has said. The ministry’s latest intelligence update said Iran had become one of Russia’s top military backers since Russia invaded Ukraine in February and that Moscow was now trying to obtain more weapons, including hundreds of ballistic missiles.
Heavy fighting has continued in eastern and southern Ukraine, mainly in regions that Russia illegally annexed in September. Associated Press reported Ukraine’s presidential office as saying on Friday that five civilians had been killed and another 13 wounded by Russian shelling in the past 24 hours.
Russia wants to turn Ukraine into a “dependent dictatorship” like Belarus, the wife of jailed Belarusian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Ales Byalyatski said on Saturday upon receiving the prize on his behalf, speaking his words. Byalyatski, Russian rights group Memorial and Ukraine’s Center for Civil Liberties won the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize in October, amid the war in Ukraine that followed Russia’s invasion of its neighbour, Reuters reported.
