Russian strike hits shopping mall, Zelensky says; G-7 meets as NATO plans to boost forces

Source: Washington Post

A Russian strike hit a crowded shopping mall in central Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Telegram Monday. At least 20 people are injured and two dead, according to officials — figures expected to rise. Videos shared in the aftermath appear to show the shopping center in the industrial city of Kremenchuk engulfed in flames.

President Biden told Zelensky Monday that the United States intends to provide Kyiv with advanced medium- and long-range air defense capabilities, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Monday. Washington is “in the process of finalizing a package” that will also include other items of “urgent need, including ammunition for artillery and counter-battery radar systems,” Sullivan said, according to a pool report.

3. Shopping malls, schools, apartments, grain silos, hospitals

7. Its way past time for NATO to do its duty.

They use the excuse that they are only a defensive organization. And only if one of the privileged countries in their exclusive club gets attacked are they required to act.

How is this Russian atrocity (the whole invasion) NOT seen as a threat to the other democratic NATO states? Are they seriously going to wait until all of Ukraine is in rubbles, Zelensky and his family are shot, and a Putin puppet firmly locks Ukraine behind the new Iron Curtain, and Putin is gathering his troops to retake the Baltic states?

The best defence is a good offence. Why are they so voluntarily ignorant of that?

9. Now can we give Ukraine our excess F-16's??

Sitting in storage?

Take out of storage.
Bring pilots to U.S. for training.
Trained? Send them back in the fighter they trained in.

We are damn late in doing this.

(I think the line this will escalate tensions and cause Putin to freak out is bullshit.)
