What Russia is doing in their war of terror against Ukrainians will never be forgiven. Footage is coming in of residential apartment buildings reduced to shells; newborn babies having to be moved from ICU into makeshift bomb shelters; bloodied elderly women shell-shocked after another vicious Russian bombing raid.

There is no end to the Russian cruelty and terror. The question is : who will they attempt to come after next?

Stand strong, Ukrainians. We stand with you.

Stay strong Ukraine. I'm so sorry for what Putin is doing to your country.

Sometimes I wish I were a Christian, then I could look forward to monsters like Vlad spending eternity in Hell.

Korsunsky lamented how troops attacked "a peaceful country without any provocation" with missiles "in peaceful time."

A peaceful country that had been shooting off its own Eastern territories on the Russian border? Mr Korsunsky seems to be forgetting a lot.

Tons of photos available of people in Luhansk/Donetsk celebrating that Russia recognised it as a sovereign territory, since Kyiv did absolutely nothing to fix the relations between their Western&Eastern parts.

Sometimes I wish I were a Christian

Recall that Putin claims to be a Christian, which makes him attractive to many extreme rightists around the globe, that and he looks similar to many of them, especially those easily mistaken for Chucky. And that Putin comes from a 'race' according to him they identify with.

What Putin and the Russian military are doing is truly horrible and unnecessary. My heart goes out to the Ukranian people. Putin has ensured that any small country near Russia should join NATO. And that Russian "We will not invade" credibility is completely shot to hell.

They’re coming for Taiwan next

Given the events this week I can see how that is expected but Taiwan and China are like Tokyo and Osakans, the same people, language and culture unlike Ukraine. No reason to try and kill each other.

Macron should have replied to putin that Moscow would disappear within minutes of any attack against France. Then remembered to send his ballistic nuclear armed subs to Russia's coastline.

Threatening another nuclear power with a nuke shows how mad and unstable Putin has become.

Nuke a NATO power and have three nuclear armed nations wipe your nation from the map. Insanity.

War itself is a war crime and those who start wars are therefore war criminals.

It is natural for Ukrainians to be anxious about family friends and country for those living over seas. Their people are protesting in most nations that they have a diaspora in.

Yea, because Putin will just sit there and watch them do that. Putin would Put a nuke In Macron's ass before that happens.

That will not stop France nuking Russia. Kill Macron and nuke France, they know who did it. No secret. The US and UK join France and there you have it. Putin manages to start a nuclear Armageddon and Europe including Russia is a waste land as is the US and everyone else targeted.

Nuclear winter is the worst solution to global warming.

You're right, and nobody in their right mind would do that. Unfortunately... Putin isn't.

Unless they’re seeking asylum they won’t be sent back themselves, but naturally they must be worried about family, and nation.

The longer it goes on, the longer the Kyev government hangs on, the worse it will get for Putin.

Finally heard it on an Indian news channel from a senior retired RAF officer; CIA is absolutely already at work, guerilla/insurgent fighters are mobilizing in the region outside Ukraine, and handheld Stinger ground to air missiles are without a doubt on the way to Ukraine.

UK must now offer refugee status, asylum to all Ukraine families able to escape the slaughter.

That is a minimum.

They are all eastern slavs, the languages are no more different than dialects. They should learn to stop being a tool for the outsiders.

Maybe Putin can be the great uniter since the tsar time

More like Stalin the great destroyer/murderer.

Putin has thrown the rule book, international law, out the window.

It is time to fully support Ukraine, it's Government, it's people.

If Putin threatens hell, then reign hellfire.

Putin want a nuclear confrontation than respond first tactical then strategic.

It is time to call Putin out, how many cities incinerated will the people of Russia accept before Putin is decapitated and dragged through the streets

This unnecessary and vile war will likely blow up in Putin's face. As it stands Putin has no real friends anymore, except, perhaps, Trump.

And what rule book is that?

yes, & also special forces teams.

you would be naive if you thought otherwise

My 96 year old J Grandfather stressed you wear your uniform with honor and pride you fight until your last breath.

You fix bayonets and you trample the enemy into the ground.

You make them regret ever setting foot on Japanese soil.

I think it is the time and the place that EU/US/NATO crushed the Putin bug no matter the cost.

it’s usually not countries or it’s citizens who want to start wars, it’s mostly just one crazy egotistical madman at the top

He is certainly uniting everyone in their hatred for Putin, that is for sure. I hope he rots in hell.

Ukraine will be denazified, just as Germany was after 1945.

It will be once the Russians are driven out.

Hope all the innocent people don't get caught in the cross hairs and remain safe during these oppressing times.

Russian stock market down ONE THIRD today.

But hey, I'm sure the oligarchs are totally cool with losing ONE THIRD of their wealth in ONE DAY!!

With more losses on the way!

Russian assets nosedived as military attacks across Ukraine prompted emergency central bank action and additional sanctions from the U.S., wiping out almost $200 billion in stock-market value and roughly a third of the sovereign debt’s value.

Good, I hope they lose the remaining 2/3 soon.

If, and a big if, US/EU/NATO/UK, all throw boots and there combined armoury on the ground.

State to Putin, withdraw or we will all stand firm, and if provoked, reply with the the unthinkable.

Putin Russia, its people, will be left with no options.

I am angry , and anger can lead to irrational red mist.

Damn, I believe the people of Ukraine must be fully supported.

On every level militarily, economically, there families peoples be offer safe refuge.

And yes, the last of the murderous dictators be held accountable still breathing, an example.
