Here we go again. As the Ukraine army gets routed once again by Novorussian forces, king cry baby, and WW2 historian, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yatsenyuk played his “Russia has invaded Ukraine” card for the 1,000,000,000,000’th time.
Russian military forces and equipment have entered Ukraine, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk says, according to a report from Ukraine’s state-run media on Monday.
“I have just spoken with the national defense and security council secretary. Ukrainian military intelligence confirm the fact military personnel and equipment have been transferred from Russia to Ukraine,” the prime minister is quoted as saying.
He continued: “Tanks, GRAD multiple rocket systems, BUK and SMERCH systems, radio electronic intelligence systems are not sold at local Donetsk street markets. Only the Russian army and Defense Ministry have them.”
The prime minister’s spokeswoman, Olga Lappo, confirmed to CNN the quotes attributed to Yatsenyuk are accurate.
Of course in the last six months we have countless sightings of Russian troops invading Ukraine, over and over again.
One has to ask, why does Russia keep sending exactly 1,000 troops into Ukraine, then calling them back to Russia, and then resending the same 1,000 guys into Ukraine again?
Here are some over-the-top, hilarious, and sad (because these are supposedly serious media sources and government officials) video briefs of the never ending Russian/Ukraine invasion.
