Putin Announces a Partial Military Mobilization for Russian Citizens

Putin's veiled nuclear threat was "dangerous and reckless" but also not new, "as he has done it many times before, " NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with Reuters Wednesday

He knows very well that a nuclear war should never be fought and cannot be won and it will have unprecedented consequences for Russia, " Stoltenberg added

And therefore, NATO has also increased its military presence, especially in the eastern part of the alliance to remove any room for miscalculation and misunderstanding in Moscow

To those who allow themselves such statements regarding Russia, I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, " Putin said

And for separate components and more modern than those of NATO countries and when the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal

Putin has shown utter disrespect to China, India, Mexico, Turkey, other Asian, African, Middle Eastern, Latin American nations which have called for diplomacy and an end to Russia’s war on Ukraine

Biden will also "make a call to the world to continue to stand against the naked aggression that we've seen these past several months, " Sullivan said

Voting is due take place in occupied Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia over the weekend and the results are expected to be fixed in favor of joining Russia
