Biden orders troops to countries bordering Russia

The US is shifting forces from elsewhere in Europe to Baltic states to bolster NATO defenses

President Joe Biden has announced plans to shift some of the US military’s European forces into Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, reinforcing NATO’s northeastern flank after Russia formally recognized the sovereignty of the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

Biden announced the military maneuvering on Tuesday, as he gave a scathing speech accusing Russia of trying to absorb its neighbor’s territory and announced new sanctions. The Pentagon reportedly said 800 soldiers will be moved to the Baltic region from Italy, while eight F-35 jets will be shifted to Eastern Europe from Germany. In addition, 32 Apache helicopters will be moved to Poland from Germany and Greece. Read More

Russia to evacuate its diplomats from Ukraine

Kiev has failed to provide appropriate security for Moscow’s diplomatic staff, the Foreign Ministry has said

Moscow is set to withdraw its diplomatic staff from Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, accusing Kiev of failing to abide by its international obligations to ensure their security.

“The Russian Embassy in Kiev and the Consulates General of our country in Odessa, Lvov, and Kharkov have been repeatedly attacked,” the statement reads. “Russian diplomats have also become the target of aggressive actions. They received threats of physical violence. Their cars were burned,” it continued.

The Kiev authorities have failed to act on these threats and to protect the Russian diplomats “despite their obligations under the Vienna Convention,” the ministry said, referring to the framework agreement on diplomatic relations.

The statement ended with the announcement that Russian diplomatic staff would be evacuated from Ukraine “in the near future.”

In the current circumstances, our top priority is to take care of Russian diplomats and employees of the Embassy and Consulates General. To protect their lives and safety, the Russian leadership has decided to evacuate the personnel of Russian foreign missions in Ukraine... Read More

Russian parliament grants Putin right to deploy military abroad

After discussing the situation in Donbass, the Senate has authorized the president’s request

The upper house of Russia’s parliament has granted permission for the country’s military to be deployed abroad, following a request on Tuesday from President Vladimir Putin.

The authorization grants Putin the right to use Russian forces abroad “in accordance with the principles and norms of international law,” the Senate’s resolution, released to the media, shows. The document does not impose any specific limits on the use of the military, with the number of troops, as well as “the areas of their activity, their goals, and length of stay outside Russia” to be decided by the president “in accordance with the Constitution.”

The decision was taken after Russia recognized the breakaway Donetsk (DPR) and Lugansk (LPR) People’s Republics in eastern Ukraine.

Later on Tuesday, Putin told journalists Moscow was ready to provide military support to the Donbass republics, if required. The president was speaking in the Kremlin after holding talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart, Ilham Aliyev.

“Yesterday we signed agreements with the DPR and LPR. They contain clauses that we will provide, among other things, military assistance … If necessary, we will fulfill our obligations,” he said…. Read More

US issues Russian empire warning

Washington tells the UN that Moscow will try to invade the entire former Russian Empire

The recognition of the Donetsk (DPR) and Lugansk (LPR) People’s Republics is the first step in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plans to recolonize the former Russian Empire, the US Ambassador to the UN declared on Monday.

In remarks made at a UN Security Council emergency meeting on the Ukraine crisis, Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield asserted that the signing of the agreement to formally recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR constituted an evident breach of Ukrainian sovereignty by Russia, and added that this absorption would not be a stand-alone event.

“Today, President Putin has torn the Minsk agreements to shreds. We have been clear that we do not believe he will stop at that,” the American diplomat said, referring to Russia’s decision to put an end to the historic accord with Ukraine that agreed Moscow would end its presence in the Donbass… Read More

Donbass recognition ‘one of the darkest day in Europe’s modern history’ – EU

Russia’s decision will define the future of global security, says EU official

By recognizing the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, Russia violated the basic rules of international law enshrined in the UN Charter and undermined the global security architecture, a high-level Eurocrat said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the Ministerial Forum for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific in Paris, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans condemned Moscow for its “blatant” and “unacceptable” decision to recognize the independence of the two breakaway regions in the Donbass.

“Today, without any doubt, is one of the darkest days in modern European history. Russia is no longer the power to dominate, therefore [it] chooses to disrupt,” Timmermans said. “Our reaction to that behavior is going to determine not just the security of Europe; it is going to determine global security for the years to come. It’s not just a European problem even though it happens in Europe.”Read More

Russia discloses plans for Donbass military bases

The ability to set up military installations is included in a deal signed with the breakaway republics

While Russia has struck a deal that enables it to deploy troops and military hardware on a long-term basis to sites across the Donbass, at present it has no concrete plans to establish installations in the newly recognized Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, Moscow has revealed, despite speculation its troops are already there.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Rudenko explained what moves his country’s armed forces are considering taking in the region.

“So far, there hasn’t been any talk about setting up bases” he said. “But if necessary, we will do everything that needs to be done. The agreement stipulates that,” he said… Read More

The move comes after Russia announced it would recognize the two breakaway Donbass republics

Germany will put an immediate halt to the certification of the Russian-backed Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Chancellor Olaf Scholz has announced, after Moscow recognized the two breakaway Donbass regions of Donetsk and Lugansk.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Scholz said the green light cannot be given for the pipeline to begin pumping supplies in the light of the current standoff between Russia and Ukraine.

Trump praises Putin as he launches his own social media

Former President Donald Trump has praised Russia’s Vladimir Putin for his strategy in eastern Ukraine, arguing that the Russian leader outmaneuvered Joe Biden by declaring the breakaway republics of Donetsk (DPR) and Lugansk (LPR) to be sovereign states.

“I went in yesterday, and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius,’” Trump told radio host Buck Sexton in an interview on Tuesday. “Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine – of Ukraine — Putin declares it as independent.” He added sardonically, “Oh, that’s wonderful.”Read More
