Not easy to join NATO, even more difficult to join EU. Maybe we need a new organisation which steps in when global peace is in danger, whole countries being attacked, civilians murdered, and lies planted like seeds on a field of destruction.

Lavrov, the ugliest bulldog in history, has made clear that Putin will not have less than total Ukraine.

He will opt for total war next. I listened to his speech for a minute or so and threw up right after.

Maternity hospital housing secret warriors and so on while pregnant ladies and babies were still being rescued from the rubble.

Will the world continue to watch while Putin uses worse weapons on civilians?

Lavrov, the ugliest bulldog in history,

I think Mr. Lavrov has some competition from his Chinese counterpart and the former Foreign Minister of Iraq, Tariq Aziz. He may come close to killing as many Ukrainians as one of his predecessors Vyacheslav Molotov did (in his case the agricultural collectivization of Ukraine he enforced for Stalin led to mass starvation).

Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov in Turkey, denied his country invaded and is at war against Ukraine.

Comrade Putin has decreed it shall be called a "Special Military Operation" and anyone who calls it anything else risks prison. A Russian prison. The Russians aren't invading. Oh no ! The dear Russian soldiers are there to rescue those long suffering Ukrainians from their drug addicted neo-Nazi leader, the "Nazi" who oh by the way just happens to be Jewish.

Did anyone see the video today of a Russian armored regiment getting ambushed and destroyed in a Ukrainian ambush? The Ukrainians are producing amazing videos of these actions from RC quadcopters with Go-Pro or similar cameras mounted to them.

It is interesting to read the many similarities between this invasion and the 1939 Soviet invasion of Finland. Even the Russian propaganda used in both wars are surprisingly similar. The Finns complained bitterly about the Soviet Air Force dropping incendiary and cluster bombs on them (gee, that sounds familiar). The Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov claimed they were dropping food packages to starving Finns! The Finns soon called them Molotov Food Baskets. It was not long after than the Finns came up with gasoline bombs to use on Russian tanks, which were "drink to go with the food" and the "Molotov Cocktail" was born. One wonders what Mr. Lavrov's name may be appended to?

Durung the Soviet-Afghan war, the USSR dropped booby-tapped toy cars and trucks by parachute so that curious Afghan boys could pick them up and either lose a body part or even a life.
