Early Thursday morning Russian leader Vladimir Putin finally invaded Ukraine, launching the largest state vs state attack in Europe since World War Two.

The land, sea and air assault by Russian forces included attacks across Ukraine’s borders from Russia and Belarus and amphibious landings on its coast from the Black and Azov seas, as well as missile strikes in Odessa.


As Reuters noted, “In an early-morning declaration of war, Putin said he had ordered ‘a special military operation’ to protect people, including Russian citizens, subjected to ‘genocide’ in Ukraine – an accusation the West calls baseless propaganda.”

According to Reuters, an adviser to the presidential office in Ukraine said: “Ukrainian troops fought Russian forces along practically the entire border, and fierce fighting was taking place in the regions of Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, Odessa and at a military airport near Kyiv.”

Ukrainian officials claimed the Russians were using Grad rockets against them. These unguided 122mm multiple launch rocket systems are notoriously indiscriminate, landing anywhere within a rectangle of approximately 54,000 square meters (13 acres).

Reuters reported that explosions were heard throughout the morning in the capital Kyiv, a city of 3 million people. Meanwhile, there was constant gunfire as sirens screamed and the highway out of the city was clogged with traffic with fleeing residents.

Ukrainian officials also said Russian helicopters attacked Gostomel, a military airport near Kyiv, and Ukraine downed three of them, according to Reuters.

Russians were also reportedly trying to penetrate the Kyiv region as well as the Zhytomyr region on the Belarusian border.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky defiantly tweeted:

Russia treacherously attacked our state in the morning, as Nazi Germany did in the WW2 years. Russia has embarked on a path of evil, but Ukraine is defending itself & won’t give up its freedom no matter what Moscow thinks.

Zelenskiy also called on Ukrainians to defend their country, promising arms to anyone who will fight, while urging Russians to take to the streets to protest against their government’s actions

I hate to say this and I could be wrong but I can see our government turning on us at some point (considering how r*dical liberal the current administration is). Unless we bend to their new agenda, I can see us being put in jail, being charged with treason or any other thing they can think of to punish us or get us out of the way.

And, they’ll blame Putin for that. It’s a chess game, and we’re the pawns.

All governments of the Earth are formed, and controlled by sinful mankind; thus, all governments of the Earth are doomed for failure, many sooner than others.
Just as Israel failed to accomplish God’s desires in taking the knowledge of God’s existence into all the world; so too, did the United States fail, even after having been the most blessed of all nations of the Earth, and now she has become one of the most corrupt governments of all governments.
God has been warning the United States of her destruction by heathen nations since the mid-1980s. However, the vast majority of this nation are a stubborn stiff-necked, prideful people believing they are more righteous than all others of this Earth.
In April 1994, the Holy Spirit whispered in my left ear three days in a row to lead me to the first of three pastors whom God had shown visions of the destruction of the United States.
God has never allowed the destruction of a nation nor of its people before first sending His warnings, hoping that the hearts of the people might turn to Him to be saved.
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). I am nothing but an old man who God has made a watchman to share His warnings to those who have the ears to listing.
In Aug. 1994, after reading the WTC Building Engineer’s report on the #2 Tower which was bombed on Feb. 26, 1993, I laid facedown and began praying… After this prayer the Holy Spirit spoke through my lips saying, “They are coming back to ‘HIT’ this tower again, when they do, they will ‘TAKE’ this tower to the ground.” I shared God’s warning to all who would listen for the next seven years until the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.
I now tell how 9/11/2001 was the first of three major attacks, the second attack will be approx. 1000 times greater, occurring in three areas, one somewhere in Southern California, and two on the upper East Coast, looking most likely to be in or near Philadelphia and Boston.
The third attack will be the destruction of the worldly protector of Israel, the United States, and never to rise again.
The remaining nations will quickly embrace the NWO agenda with the one world government, and the one world religion. They will quickly sign a Seven Year Peace Treaty; although, it will be a false peace treaty at best.
In seven short years the armies of world will surround Israel’s army on the Plains of Megiddo for the greatest of all Battles, Armageddon.
Do not be deceived by those that predict the re-election of our Pres. Trump.

Fixed elections have consequences.
If Trump was still president, Putin would not have dared.
Weakness is like blood in the water that can attract more than one predator.
Taiwan is next.
