The Russian Federation tries out its hybrid warfare against Ukraine before deploying it against the United States. Before “Stop the steal!” came “Maidan was a coup!” My @RadioLemberg article: https://t.co/5HZf11hIn6

Republican lawmakers are in league with the Russia-backed insurrectionists in the U.S. as the Party of Regions/Opposition Bloc is in league with the Russian invaders of Ukraine. #PutinAtWar

Another day passes with no #Magnitsky sanctions from Canada. Nothing moves the Trudeau government from appeasement. The poisoning/imprisonment of Navalny, Russia's war against Ukraine, China's genocide of the Uyghurs, China kidnapping the "Two Michaels": Canada does nothing.

Paul Manafort is a Russian agent who served Putin in Ukraine and the US. He managed Trump as Vladislav Surkov managed the "DPR"/"LPR" terrorists. Michael Flynn is a Russian agent, working for Putin's war on the US as Igor "Strelkov" Girkin worked for Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

Russian Federation forces invading Ukraine shelled Vodyane near occupied Donetsk with 120mm mortars today. The enemy also fired on Ukrainian positions at Pisky and Pavlopil. The Russians flew a UAV over the defences of Mariupol. #RussiaInvadedUkraine https://t.co/j8uk2cCEGR https://t.co/nNxoZ6BORK

Here's another sign Russia is thinking about a renewed military offensive in Ukraine. Putin's mouthpiece Dmitry Peskov said: "The main thing is that the civil war does not resume." Russia presents its invasion in the east of Ukraine as a "civil war." https://t.co/5QBnJUaqBM

The Russian Federation's "purported annexation of Crimea and its use of force in Ukraine, continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States." –President Joe Biden #RussiaInvadedUkraine https://t.co/pMX0OAvqzf

Russia may launch an offensive in Ukraine: -increased shelling by RU forces in Donbas -failure of RU occupiers to supply water to Crimea -propaganda, projection and disinformation aimed at Ukraine -Western politicians encouraging Putin with appeasement #RussiaInvadedUkraine

A Ukrainian soldier was wounded in action yesterday, March 3rd, as the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation attacked four times on the invasion battlefront. The defender was shot. Ukrainian forces responded to the enemy's fire with retaliatory fire. https://t.co/QVfbo2Ap7T https://t.co/fgeSvJhid6

Canada listed the fascist Proud Boys as a terrorist organization. Germany put the fascist Alternative for Germany (AfD) under surveillance. The United States does nothing about fascist groups and ignores the fact the Republican Party was captured by aggressor Russia.

The Prime Minister of Slovakia, Igor Matovič, "joked" that in exchange for Russia's Sputnik V (allegedly a coronavirus vaccine) he offered to give Ukrainian Transcarpathia. Disgusting. Russian chauvinism and anti-Ukrainian bigotry is endemic to Europe's political elites. https://t.co/R4idSq0jE2

An operation by Ukrainian intelligence to capture Russian terrorists was betrayed after President Zelenskyy and his top aide, Andriy Yermak, were informed. I wrote about it: https://t.co/lCiHawosG5 Today, Ukraine's State Investigation Bureau launched a criminal investigation.

Canada has not used the Magnitsky Act to sanction any officials responsible for gross human rights violations in Russian-occupied Crimea. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress provided a list of 16 officials who should be sanctioned. #CrimeaIsUkraine #cdnpoli https://t.co/5UHX1k2M7R https://t.co/VuUTKyp9i9

Russia announced a new offensive in the east of Ukraine. The 1st Army Corps (falsely called "DPR") of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation said it will attack Ukrainian positions. RU forces have been using heavy artillery, snipers and mines extensively in recent weeks.

7 yrs ago, Crimean Tatar Reshat Ametov went on a peaceful rally against occupation of #Crimea. He was detained & abducted. March 15, his mutilated body was found by a roadside. Cause of death: stab (shot?) in the eye. No, annexation wasn’t bloodless. #WeRemember #CrimeaIsUkraine https://t.co/y07WWaYhPq
