MSNBC Morning Joe: What the media doesn't show about Western support for Ukraine -- and can't


Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski discuss what the media doesn't and can't show about the Western world's support for Ukraine, and why. "There's a lack of proper context in news, in what Americans are seeing and what Americans are reading," Joe says. The "massive amount of weapons that are moving from Poland into Ukraine" have to be handled quietly by the government, and news media is not invited. "It's giving Americans a skewed sense."

The hosts' blabbering & Joe's shouting at times gets to me, but in this case i agree with them and glad they're pointing out the fact all the work in the background on transfer of arms, intelligence support, etc. are not publicized (probably asked not to) by the American MSM.

CBS: Blinken says NATO countries have "green light" to send fighter jets to Ukraine

Source: CBS

Washington Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that NATO members have the go-ahead to send fighter jets to Ukraine as the U.S. and allies continue their efforts to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia's invasion.

"That gets a green-light," Blinken said in an interview with "Face the Nation" when asked whether the Polish government, a member of NATO, could send fighter planes to Ukraine. "In fact, we're talking with our Polish friends right now about what we might be able to do to backfill their needs if in fact they choose to provide these fighter jets to the Ukrainians. What can we do? How can we help to make sure that they get something to backfill the planes that they are handing over to the Ukrainians?"

We stand with Ukraine!!

General Petraeus said on CNN that putin will not win this war

crux of his message: While they may take a city they cannot hold it given the resolve of ukrainians to fight back.

This is encouraging after the horrific reports of setbacks this morning as the russians are advancing.

Post edit: i was amazed Gen. Petraeus named Angela Merkel to broker a ceasefire.

MSN: After Russia invaded Ukraine, Credit Suisse asked investors to destroy documents linked to olig

After Russia invaded Ukraine, Credit Suisse asked investors to destroy documents linked to oligarch yacht loans, report says:


Credit Suisse asked investors to destroy documents tied to oligarchs' yacht and jet loans, the FT reported
The bank said the request was after a data leak to the media but didn't specify which one, per the FT.
It comes as the US, UK, and the EU sanctioned Russian oligarchs in the wake of Ukraine's invasion.

Hmmm so on the one hand the Swiss are supporting EU sanctions against Russia

while OTOH one of its top banks is canoodling with Russian oligarchs
