Tonight, as the United Nations Security Council met to “stop” Russian military aggression in Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin declared military operations are to commence against the Ukraine.

This is what real war sounds like, not “Call of Duty” or a simulation:

After a long day on the road, I’ll probably start tomorrow’s update after midnight UTC then crash.

If either government says they have won control of a city or area, wait until pictures of their troops are posted to believe it.
