     As the Russian shells explode, everyone takes cover – apart from Patron, who doesn’t even flinch. But then Patron is a national hero, recently awarded a medal for valour by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, has 250,000 Instagram followers and is the star of billboards symbolising his country’s defiance of Vladimir Putin. Patron the Jack Russell has become a billboard worthy war hero as his bomb disposal skills have helped the team find over 200 Russian landmines and unexploded bombs He is also a Jack Russell originally bought to appear in pedigree dog shows, but who has detected more than 200 deadly Russian landmines and unexploded bombs. Wagging his tail, Patron – whose name translates to Bullet in English – earns his reward of a piece of cheese from his owner and handler Mykhailo Iliev. He has to be careful with the treats. Patron weighs 4kg, handily less than the 5kg that sets off most Russian munitions. The two-year-old pet found fame when Ukraine’s State Emergency Service posted a video online of their mascot working in the war-torn northern city of...
    VELYKA KOSTROMKA, Ukraine (AP) — The explosions started in the middle of the night, shaking the house to its foundations. Roof timbers splintered and windows shattered, sending shards of glass hurtling above three sleeping children into the opposite wall. It was around 2 a.m. and Iryna Martsyniuk had stayed up late watching a video on her computer while her children slept. She didn’t know what was hitting her house —- mortars, rockets or missiles. All she knew was that, in the dead of night, everything was exploding. It wasn’t the first time the Ukrainian village of Velyka Kostromka, just a few kilometers (miles) from the southern front line in the war in Ukraine, was being hit. But Thursday’s early morning attack was the most intense and most widespread. Around 20 houses were damaged, including three irreparably, and two people were lightly injured, said Olha Shaytanova, the head of the village. Later in the day, explosives experts blew up at least one undetonated device they found embedded in a field. Remnants of other devices lay scattered in the village. ...
    Former President George W. Bush made a revealing gaffe on Wednesday evening when he blamed Russian leader Vladimir Putin for a “wholly unjustified and brutal invasion” of Ukraine while praising Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Instead of saying Ukraine, though, Bush screwed up and said, “Iraq.” Bush was speaking about the ongoing tensions between Ukraine and Russia on Wednesday at his presidential center at Southern Methodist University. “Russian elections are rigged, political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated from participating in the electoral process. The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia,” Bush said. “And the decision of one man who launched a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq — I mean Ukraine,” he continued. Bush, 75, paused while the crowd erupted in laughter, then blamed his age for the mistake. “Anyway, 75,” he added. Former President George W.

    A decorated retired Army General and MSNBC contributor unknowingly shared footage of a video game and claimed it was a Russian plane being shot down by Ukraine before quickly deleting the Tweet when he was corrected. Four-star general Barry R. McCaffrey's gaffe did not go unnoticed, with some pointing out at the mistake by the former Clinton advisor. 'Russian aircraft getting nailed by UKR missile defense. Russians are losing large numbers of attack aircraft. UKR air defense becoming formidable,' McCaffrey wrote in a now-deleted Tweet. The animation shared by McCaffrey was actually from Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) footage from the video game 'Arma 3.' Four-star general Barry R.

    Pentagon spokesman John Kirby delivered an emotional condemnation of Vladimir Putin's 'depravity' in Ukraine on Friday, and came close to tears as he described the horror of looking at images coming from the war-torn country. Kirby has won rave reviews for his unflappable manner and dry sense of humor during briefings, delivering grim news with the minimum of fuss. But on Friday the toll of 65 days of war in Ukraine caught up with him when he was asked about President Putin's state of mind.  'I'm not going to go into the psychology of Vladimir Putin,' he began. 'It's hard to look at what he's doing in Ukraine, what his forces are doing in Ukraine and think that any ethical, moral individual could justify that.  'It's difficult to look at the...' He tailed off, apparently choking up and battling to regain his composure. After a few seconds, he resumed his train of thought and delivered one of his most powerful condemnations yet of the Russian president.  'Sorry,' he said. 'It's difficult to look at some of the images and imagine...
    A Ukrainian soldier, somewhere in the front lines. As noted this morning, Russia went from attacking in too many axes during the war’s first season, to …. attacking in too many axes in this second phase.  Right now, Russia is attempting to advance toward: Mykolaiv Kryvyi Rih Zaprozhzhia Sievierodonetsk Slovyansk/Kramatorsk South, east, west, and northwest of Izyum (seriously) Pushing out from Donetsk Mariupol Well, you can add Moldova to the list, as a series of Russian false-flags are laying the foundational groundwork to declare the breakaway region of Transnistria an independent nation, like Russia did with the two “republics” in the Donbas—Luhansk and Donetsk. Once done, Russia can justify yet another invasion, because this one is clearly going so well.  This lack of focus is truly hampering Russia’s war effort. Take a look at the Izyum salient, one of the rare corners of Ukraine where Russia seems to be getting its shit together. In today’s update, the Institute for the Study of War, the authors note that Russia seems to be getting its shit together:  Russian forces have adopted...
    President Joe Biden announced Thursday that the U.S. is sending another $800 million in lethal aid and security assistance to Ukraine, and $500 million in economic assistance “to help stabilize their economy, to support communities that have been devastated by the Russian onslaught, and pay the brave workers that continue to provide essential services to the people of Ukraine.” “With this latest disbursement, I’ve almost exhausted the draw-down authority I have that Congress authorized for Ukraine and a bipartisan spending bill last month,” Biden said. He announced that he will send a supplemental budget request to Congress next week “to keep weapons and ammunition flowing without interruption to the brave Ukrainian fighters and to continue to deliver economic assistance to the Ukrainian people.” Then he thanked Congress ”Democrats and Republicans—for their support for the people of Ukraine.” We’ll see how much thanks Republicans deserve with this next request, which Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says will be coupled with the administration’s other urgent supplemental funding request for COVID-19 pandemic funds. The White House has been clamoring for weeks for more funding—for vaccines, treatments,...
    She suffers constant nightmares that Russian troops are seizing her home city – but Katrin Kravtsov previously never thought she would see the day when she would leave her beloved Mykolaiv. However, the 37-year-old mother-of-one decided that enough was enough when shelling hit her neighbourhood late on Tuesday. Katrin and husband Alexey live in a modest one-bedroom flat in a Soviet-era apartment block.  The couple and their six-year-old son Maxim spent Tuesday night in their hallway by the door – ready to run for their lives in case of another attack. It came as speculation mounts that Russia – as part of its masterplan to seize the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine – is plotting to take this port city on the Black Sea and force the region to hold a bogus breakaway referendum. Such a move would create a massive land corridor under Kremlin rule. Alexey Kravtsov, 38, along with his wife Katrin, 37 and son Maxim, 6, prepare to leave their home in the residential Ingulskii district of Mykolaiv for the safety of Odessa Mrs Kravtsov said: 'I...
    THE hero leading the defence of besieged Mariupol has vowed to take on the invading Russians in a bayonet charge when their ammo runs out. Captain Sviatoslav Palamar, of the National Guard Azov Regiment, spoke to The Sun as he prepares a last stand at the city’s steel works. 3Claws out... Cpt Palamar says he will lead a bayonet chargeCredit: Not known, clear with picture desk 3Ukrainian soldiers on an armoured vehicleCredit: Reuters He said: “We have no way to evacuate the wounded or to hand the dead soldiers’ bodies over to their families. But we are in touch with the army leadership. There is no order to leave the city, so we continue the war. “We still hope, we obey orders and we are faithful to the oath. Mariupol is a Ukrainian city — and we will fight for it. “If we are told to counter-attack, to break through to meet the Ukrainian army, of course we will. If we run out of ammo, we’ll tie bayonets and go to hand-to-hand combat.” Praising the UK he added: “Thank you...
    Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation” that it was time for the United States to talk about sending troops to Ukraine. Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: In some public remarks this week, you said the country needs to talk about when it might be willing to send troops to Ukraine. You said if the answer is never, then we are inviting another level of escalation and brutality by Putin. Are you arguing that President Biden- COONS: Margaret- BRENNAN: -was wrong when he said he would not send troops to Ukraine? Are you asking him to set a red line? COONS: Margaret, I think those of us in Congress who have a critical role in setting foreign policy and in advising the president in terms of his decisions as commander in chief need to look clearly at the level of brutality. This is a moment of enormous challenge for all of us. And I deeply respect President Biden’s leadership in pulling together the West and imposing crushing sanctions on Russia. And in bringing to this...
    A Senate Democrat said that the U.S. needs to discuss sending American troops to Ukraine — arguing that Vladimir Putin “will only stop when we stop him.” Appearing on Face the Nation Sunday, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) was confronted by CBS’s Margaret Brennan about comments he made earlier in the week in which he argued the U.S. needs to figure out when it would be willing to send armed forces to Ukraine. “We are in a very dangerous moment where it is important that on a bipartisan and measured way we in Congress and the administration come to a common position about when we are willing to go the next step and to send not just arms but troops to the aid in defense of Ukraine,” Coons said. “If the answer is never then we are inviting another level of escalation in brutality by Putin.” Brennan asked Coons, “Are you arguing that President Biden was wrong when he said he would not send troops to Ukraine? Are you asking him to set a red line?” The senator praised Biden’s...
    President Joe Biden replied “yeah” during a back-and-forth with reporters about whether he’s “ready to go” to war-torn Ukraine. On Thursday morning, President Biden spoke briefly with reporters on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews as he boarded Air Force One en route to Greensboro, North Carolina. There, he had an exchange that sounded, to some, a lot like he’s open to going to the war-torn country himself. President Biden: I couldn’t hear you… Reporter: Will you send officials to Ukraine? Will you send senior officials to Ukraine? President Biden: We’re making that decision now. Reporter: Who would you send? President Biden: Are you ready to go? Reporter: Are you? President Biden: Yeah. President Biden then boarded the plane. Politico’s Playbook PM newsletter reported the exchange somewhat breathlessly: BIDEN TO UKRAINE? — In an exchange with reporters on his way to North Carolina earlier today, President JOE BIDEN seemed to indicate that he is open to personally visiting Ukraine soon, as the administration discusses sending an official delegation to the war-torn country. More than likely, though, this was yet another...

    The leaders of Finland and Sweden have both said a decision on whether to apply for NATO membership can be expected sooner rather than later.Paul Wennerholm | Afp | Getty Images LONDON — Finland and Sweden could both seek to join NATO in the coming weeks, warning Europe's security landscape has "completely changed" in the aftermath of Russia's onslaught in Ukraine. Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said Wednesday that the Nordic country, which shares a 1,300-kilometer border with Russia, would decide on whether to join the U.S.-led military alliance "within weeks." Finnish lawmakers are expected to debate the pros and cons of joining the 30-member alliance upon returning from their Easter break. Speaking alongside Sweden's Magdalena Andersson at a joint press conference in Stockholm, Marin said: "Everything changed when Russia invaded Ukraine." "I think people's mindsets in Finland, also in Sweden, changed and [were] shaped very dramatically because of Russia's actions," Marin said. "This is very clear and that caused a need for a process in Finland to have a discussion about our own security choices." Sweden's Prime Minister Andersson...
