Ukraine says ‘full-scale invasion’ by Russia underway as Putin orders military att

Latest updates as of 9 a.m. ET Thursday:

  • “Russia’s key goal is clear: to oust the Ukrainian leadership,” Ukrainian presidential adviser says.
  • NATO says it will deploy additional land, air, sea forces near Ukraine and Russia.
  • The United Kingdom and its allies will form “massive package of economic sanctions’ targeting Russia, Boris Johnson says.

Russian President Vladmir Putin defied international pressure and launched a wide-ranging attack on Ukraine Thursday, telling the West not to intervene in what appeared to be the beginning of war in Europe.

Putin said in an early morning televised speech the “special military operation,” which he said would occur in eastern Ukraine, was in response to Ukrainian threats while insisting Russia doesn’t have a goal to occupy the country.

Yet several areas throughout Ukraine were targeted by missile strikes — prompting Ukrainians to start fleeing — while Russian forces also landed troops on the country’s south coast, signalling the operation was not limited to the east.

At least 40 people have been killed and dozens were wounded by the Russian shelling, an adviser to the Ukrainian presidential office said. He did not specify if any of the dead were civilians.

I can't listen to or watch any coverage of this. I tried but it's hard to know what is really happening. I am sure there is a lot more going on than we are shown or told. I'll wait to see the story in print. Hopefully that will be a little clearer and detailed. Broadcast news sources are so utterly biased.

I do have a news site(on Facebook) where we have comprehensive coverage of the events taking place.(13,000 members)

Guess you could just pm me for the link.
