🇺🇦🇺🇸 US & over 40 partners continue to strengthen Ukraine’s position to defend its independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, secure victories on battlefield, ultimately strengthen #Ukraine’s position at negotiating table, – Blinken, Secretary of State
Comment from Hirel Thangjam:
UA forces should have been better equipped to defend Severodonetsk and not struggle against the enemy on account of inadequate hardware and firepower. To that extent, the 40 partners at Ramstein has been less than effective as the key support group actors. It’s time to overcome timidity and get NATO boots on the ground to push back Putin’s forces beyond the borders as it stood on 24 February and preferably as it was in early 2014. Now that Putin claims to be a reincarnation of Peter the Great and declared his intention to seize “lost territories”, the historical nature of Russian regimes’ expansionist goals should be recognised and confronted with adequate counterforce of the 40 partner countries. Vladimir Putin needs to be exposed for the unscrupulous and murderous thug that he is and taught a lesson that, ultimately, crime doesn’t pay, for the sake of the Russian people and the world at large.
