HISTORY: “It is frankly miraculous that they allowed the Ukrainian air force to remain operational eight days after the start of the war, when it should have theoretically had the capabilities to ground it very early in operations,” Clark said. Russian forces in Ukraine have set sparks around the world. alarm on Friday March 4 as they seized Europe’s largest nuclear power plant and Moscow blocked Facebook and some foreign media websites as it passed a ‘fake’ news law amid the increasing censorship of global corporations.

Putin’s action in the United States has drawn near-universal global condemnation, and many countries have imposed heavy sanctions in an effort to squeeze the economy as the West reconciles punishment and avoidance of a widening of the conflict.
