Russia threatens ‘nuclear’ world war as its paratroopers land in Ukraine

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense confirmed the arrival of Russian paratroopers on Telegram, although it remains unclear whether they will be involved in a ground battle. “There is a war going on between the invaders and the Ukrainians,” they said.

Mr Kharkiv was paralyzed by increased fighting on Wednesday morning, with Ukraine Interior Ministry Adviser Anton Gerashchenko confirming that a Russian air strike torched the barracks of an airfield where some of the troops were stationed.

Russian troops in a 40-mile convoy were currently about 15 miles from the capital Kyiv when precision strikes knocked down a television tower and ravages a Holocaust . memorial site and private maternity clinics on Tuesday continued to “soften” the city over what many believe a ground invasion is imminent.

Some military analysts argue that the existence of the convoy supports Russia’s claim that it actually controls Ukrainian space, making it impossible for them to attack the somewhat vulnerable convoy. The mayor of Kyiv, former heavyweight boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, vowed to defend the city. “We were in front of one of the strongest armies in the world. Independent will is our top priority. And we’re protecting our families, our city, our country, and our future,” he told CNN Wednesday. “There is a huge patriotic movement right now. Old people — you can imagine — doctors, actors, actors from the theater, many professions never expected to fight, holding weapons, but right now they (are) coming to them ta. They are ready to fight. Surprise.”

The reaction inside the war theater to President Joe Biden labeling Vladimir Putin a “dictator” during his State of the Union address has been muted, with analysts predicting the Russian President will not react. “I think those personal comments by Joe Biden are probably the things that will be on the radar of the Russian president,” said former CNN Moscow bureau chief and Russia affairs expert Jill Dougherty. “Things like ‘dictator, Putin alone is to blame, more isolated than ever.’ But I don’t think they’ll be involved in that. You know, you can’t really defend yourself by saying ‘No, I’m not a dictator.’ But what they can do is try to dismiss the argument. “

Meanwhile, inside Russia, clearly fearing an exodus of the country’s wealthy multinationals, who already have European passports through residency, Putin signed a decree. bans anyone from leaving the country with more than $10,000 in foreign currency to “ensure Russia’s financial stability,” according to the Kremlin.

On Wednesday morning, Russia announced its delegation “will be available” for new talks with Ukrainian negotiators, although no location has been announced. Asked if Ukraine would be involved in the increase in precision strikes across the country, a Kremlin spokesman said: “We hope it will.”
