"You cannot have free speech and not offend people. That's why the whole political correctness movement was a form of cultural marxism, to trick people into not expressing their opinion because someone, someplace on the planet, might have their feelings hurt; to surrender freedom of speech without realizing that was what was happening." -- Michael Rivero

In one sense the Ukraine conflict is over.  In another sense it is dangerously expanding.

Biden and Putin are taking the path to nuclear war.  Biden by providing long range missiles to Ukraine, and Putin by refusing to use sufficient force to bring the conflict to an end before it spins out of control.

Denmark has announced its intention to send its entire artillery stocks to Ukraine, a move that will surely leave Copenhagen defenseless the moment a major conflict breaks out.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen made this announcement during the Munich Security Conference 2024 held in the German city from Feb. 16 to 18. She also appealed to other European countries to do more to help Ukraine in its fight against Russia.

"They are asking us for ammunition now, artillery now. From the Danish side, we decided to donate our entire artillery," said Frederiksen. 

Exactly two years ago this Saturday, on February 24, 2022, Vladimir Putin announced the launching – and described the objectives – of a Special Military Operation (SMO) in Ukraine. That was the inevitable follow-up to what happened three days before, on February 21 – exactly 8 years after Maidan 2014 in Kiev – when Putin officially recognized the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.

Over 9,000 Ukrainians have crossed into Romania illegally since the beginning of the armed conflict, says Florin Coman, Chief Inspector of the Sighetu-Marmatiei Territorial Inspectorate of the Border Police.

"Since the beginning of the conflict, […] over 9,000 (exactly 9,112) Ukrainian citizens aged between 18 and 60, have been discovered on Romania’s northern border, who told border security forces that they fled Ukraine because of the war," he said.

Moscow bears responsibility for the conflict between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni claimed in an interview with il Giornale newspaper published on Saturday. It was Russia’s military campaign against Ukraine that supposedly encouraged Hamas to launch a massive attack against Israel on October 7, 2023, she stated.

The leaders of Italy and Canada signed security agreements with Ukraine during their visit to Kiev on Saturday, marking the beginning of the third year of the fighting between Ukraine and Russia.

According to the deal signed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Ottawa will provide Can$3.02 billion (US$2.2 billion) “in macroeconomic and military support.”

Kiev reserves the right to retaliate against Poland if it does not convince protesting farmers to stop blocking the border crossings, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmigal said on Friday.

The Polish farmers accuse both Kiev and Warsaw of threatening their livelihood by allowing imports of cheap Ukrainian grain and other agricultural products. 

At least 15,000 Ukrainian refugees have sought homelessness support after relationships with their British sponsors broke down or ended, according to a report published by the UK government on Friday.

As of January, Around 141,000 Ukrainians have come to the UK under the ‘Homes for Ukraine’ scheme, which pays British homeowners £350 ($444) per month to take in a Ukrainian citizen or family on a six-month contract.
