The Ukraine Parliament, called the Verkhovna Rada, passed a law this morning allowing for Russian-owned properties in the country to be forcibly seized. Homes, businesses, cars, and such, owned by everyday citizens, can now be taken simply because they are Russian. It is precisely this ethnic hatred and abuse of Russian-speaking Ukrainians, that caused the Russia Army to have to enter Ukraine - and STILL the Ukrainians will not stop.
While all the military conflict is raging inside Ukraine, the Biden Administration is asking Congress for $10 Billion to deliver Humanitarian, security and economic assistant in Ukraine. Many people are now wondering why would America do this for a country being run, they say, by literal Nazis, and who just enacted a law to steal private property based on national origin?
"Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday said that Russia has no intention of nuclear war, saying Moscow is prepared to press on in its invasion of Ukraine until "the end."
"The thought of nuclear is constantly spinning in the heads of Western politicians but not in the heads of Russians," Lavrov said, according to Reuters. "I assure you that we will not allow any kind of provocation to unbalance us."
Lavrov also accused the U.S. of being concerned about the loss of control regarding what he called chemical and biological laboratories in Ukraine, and he added that Britain was building military bases in the region.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian delegation to peace talks with Russia, arrived in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, Belarus, by helicopter:
Hungarian Prime Minister Orban laid the situation out succinctly. He said “We are caught in the crossfire of the major geopolitical players, NATO has expanded eastward, and Russia was less and less comfortable with that. The Russians made two demands: that Ukraine declares neutrality and that NATO does not admit Ukraine. These security guarantees were not given to the Russians, so they decided to obtain them through war. This is the geopolitical significance of this war,” Orbán said in an interview.
French President Emanuel Macron spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin today about the situation this morning. THERE WAS NOTHING REASSURING IN WHAT PUTIN TOLD MACRON, PUTIN SHOWED HIS DETERMINATION TO CARRY ON OPERATIONS - FRENCH OFFICIALS SAY
MACRON THEN SPOKE TO UKRAINE'S ZELENSKIY WHO TOLD HIM UKRAINE WILL NOT SURRENDER, THAT NEGOTIATIONS CAN'T BE HELD WITH GUN TO HIS HEAD.
Most revealing were remarks made by a Macron aide after the call. The aide reports "Putin aiming to seize 'whole' of Ukraine."
So it seems that all sides are moving ahead, deeper into a more violent and bloody conflict.
Summing it all up, the French President this morning said "The Worst is yet to come."
