Here is today’s link to Fox News’ continually-updated Russia-Ukraine news:
To catch you up on some of the latest stories: President Biden approved an additional $100 million in military assistance to Ukraine as Secretary of State Anthony Blinken accused Russia of running a "deliberate campaign to kill, to torture, to rape, to commit atrocities." In what could be an important new development, China called the images that show a civilian massacre in Bucha “deeply disturbing” and called for an investigation; and India, which has also so far avoided criticizing Russia, said it unequivocally condemned the situation in Bucha. The Czech Republic sent a shipment of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine. President Zelenskyy accused Russia of “weaponizing hunger” by destroying food depots and mining farm fields.
This is an intriguing suggestion: The president of the European Council suggested that EU member nations offer asylum to Russian military deserters who don’t want to follow Putin’s orders to kill their Ukrainian cousins. Videos have surfaced on social media, reportedly of young Russian conscripts complaining that they’re poorly trained and badly-equipped and have been ordered into a suicidal mission they want no part of. If given half a chance, they might welcome the opportunity to drop their guns and run.
And this proves that war makes strange bedfellows: Hollywood liberal activist Sean Penn was a guest last night on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Penn admitted that he didn’t trust Hannity but thought that political differences should be put aside when facing something so terrible. He had been in Ukraine shooting a documentary about Zelenskyy when the invasion came, so he has some firsthand information and opinions to share. Penn predicts that “the Ukrainians will win this. The question is, at what cost?” You can see the interview here:
