Will Putin attack Ukraine again? Fighting Escalates in Eastern Ukraine, Signaling the End to Another Cease-Fire
" Ukraine and Russia issued statements on March 30 noting an escalation in fighting in a conflict that has been on low simmer for years. The Ukrainian government said four of its troops were killed in one battle. "
" As details began to emerge in late 2020 of Russia’s massive cyber-attack on the United States, there was plenty of anger and alarm but little in the way of genuine shock. ... Putin has also deployed hybrid Russian forces around the world,
unleashed teams of assassins, and attempted at least one coup in the Balkans. Russian hackers have set new standards in cyber warfare, targeting everything from political parties to essential infrastructure. ... As Churchill observed back in 1946, “there is nothing the Russians admire so much as strength, and there is nothing for which they have less respect than weakness.... Ukraine the most logical place to fight back against Russia’s hybrid war and the best opportunity to achieve a decisive victory.

whats Putin wants to achieve in Ukraine this time ? and what is the best way to repel Putin´s imperial attacks in Europe ?

Biden is not Hippy Obama or Trump with his strange attraction to Putin/KGB. Biden is a cold war relic

this time its different , US forces and US leadership are ON .

"

top US national security officials were in touch with their Ukrainian counterparts, and the country’s top general called his Ukrainian counterpart on Wednesday amid reports of Russian military buildup near the border with eastern Ukraine. The US had condemned the Russian aggression last week which resulted in the death of four Ukrainian soldiers.

“Russia’s destabilizing actions undermine the de-escalation intentions that had been achieved through [last year’s agreement],” CNN quoted chief Pentagon spokesman John Kirby as saying, on Wednesday. “Additionally, we are aware of Ukrainian military reports concerning Russian troop movements on Ukraine’s borders.”

The US expressed its support to Ukraine amid the threat from Russia, pledging to offer unwavering support to the country’s sovereignty. “Pleased to speak with Dmytro Kuleba today to discuss the United States unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

We continue to support Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression in the Donbas and Crimea,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a tweet.

100% agree with the greatest chess player in the history " danger rises because the dictator's sense of impunity, of invincibility, increases with every success"

Garry Kasparov
@Kasparov63



As I wrote in 2014, as Putin was still preparing his invasion of Ukraine, stopping him only gets harder the longer you wait. Obama & Trump had no interest in standing up to Putin (if for very different reasons).

The danger rises because the dictator's sense of impunity, of invincibility, increases with every success, and with every day he goes undeterred. Eventually he oversteps. But doing nothing only allows the stakes to keep getting higher.

guys , fresh update :
"Biden offers Ukraine 'unwavering support' in faceoff with Russia.

“President Biden affirmed the United States’ unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression in the Donbass and Crimea,” a U.S. statement said.

...


“We discussed the situation in Donbass in detail. President Biden assured me that Ukraine will never be left alone against Russia’s aggression,” the Ukrainian president said in a video statement afterwards."

Anyone anywhere can attack anyone else at will. Xiden won't notice. If his handlers happen to then their response will be to talk; not act. If by some accident American forces are put into play every petty dictator will seize the opportunity to attack, secure in the knowledge that the regime is already confused and America at its most vulnerable.

SInce Hunter Biden has business dealings with Ukraine (and a day of military experience on active duty), maybe he can volunteer to go over and help them if Russia attacks!!! :laughing0301:
update :
Putin is checking on Biden and NATO,
"Putin's aide: How did it happen that the Greater "Russian" lands were on the territory of Ukraine, Kazakhstan and even Belarus?

Aide to the President of Russia, former Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky asked the deputies of the Federation Council to think, "how did it happen that the Great Russian lands were on the territory of Ukraine, Kazakhstan and even Belarus," according to Russian media....
It is not the first time that high-ranking Russian officials have complained about the territory where the population speaks Russian.

In 2014, Russia tried to tear the Russian-speaking south and east from Ukraine, which in Russia is sometimes called "Novorossiya" at the highest level, but Russian forces, except for Crimea, managed to occupy only the east of Donbass, where puppets "Donetsk" and "Lugansk" were formed. "People's republics".

Kazakhstan is closely monitoring the situation in the north of the country, where Russians make up a large proportion of the population. It is these territories that Russian pre-imperial figures refer to as "Great Russia."

Belarus, which has experienced rapid Russification in the last half century, is seen by some Russian forces as a potential target for full accession."

IF Putin does so he declares war and at that point will have approximately five days of strength to project before needing to replenish forces and ordinance he does not have. That is also about the needed time for Carrier Groups to arrive in the Baltic...Putin knows this.
Moscow made a move, The extent Putin prepared to go to distract from his cruel slow motion attempt to murder A. Navalny in prison after he failed to poison him - start a war with Ukraine or at least pretend he might?
