In what has become quite the embarrassment for the Biden Administration, Ukraine took another giant hit today.
President Volodymyr Zelensky broke the news that Putin’s military forces attacked a civilian airport with eight cruise missiles. The State Departments warning to GET OUT NOW might be too little, too late for many Americans in Ukraine.
Zelensky condemned the attack in a video on Twitter.

Fox News Adds:
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba reported Sunday that Russian forces attacked a civilian airport with eight cruise missiles.
“Against our city, against our peaceful Vinnytsia which never posed a threat to Russia in any way,” Zelenskyy said in a video posted on Twitter. “A brutal, cynical missile strike has completely destroyed the airport.”
Kuleba labelled the attack as “barbaric,” and both officials renewed their calls for a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
The Russian Embassy in Israel pushed back on the reports by writing that the airport is “dual-purpose” and serves as a base of operations for the aviation brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Sadly, not all of us grasp the severity of what’s going on in Ukraine.
Just look at this Tweet from some obvious Biden supporter.
Boss Zelensky can u just call Putin up and say u agree to stay neutral. Give him that promise and rebuild your country .. he won’t Attack for the next 10 yrs given Russia economy meanwhile you can build back stronger

I don’t really like to spend time on Twitter. I detest the social media censorship that’s taken over our country. But every now and then, I just feel the need to point out the idiocy.
Are you kidding? Build back stronger? That’s certainly working for Biden, isn’t it? With $5 gas and $500 groceries. Things are just GREAT! 🙄

Meanwhile, Poland’s Ambassador validates the many predictions that Putin’s plans go far beyond Ukraine.
Fox News reports:
Poland’s ambassador to the United States told Fox News he believes Russia has military ambitions beyond Ukraine and called for economic sanctions to potentially last for decades against the Putin regime.
“I believe Ukraine is not the last item on Mr. Putin’s menu,” said Ambassador Marek Magierowski, who spoke with Fox News from the Polish Embassy in Washington, D.C.
“We have to be ready and determined to uphold the sanctions. Perhaps even for a decade or for 15 years or for 20 years, in order to see to the real effects,” Magierowski said.
Magierowski told Fox News that Poland announced Thursday it would increase its own military spending to 3% of the country’s GDP.
Saturday marked the tenth day since Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale war against Ukraine.
Magierowski said Poland and other former Soviet satellite republics have always been weary of Putin’s ambitions.
“We have always been right about Russia and about Mr. Putin. Unlike other countries, I mean Poland, Romania, the Baltics, we have never had any doubts whatsoever about the neo-imperial ambitions of the Russian president,” Magierowski said.
On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met virtually with U.S. senators, imploring the lawmakers to send additional lethal aid.
By “lethal aid,” he means guns. Unfortunately, it’s hard for Biden to promise guns when he clearly has his hands in the Russian cookie jar.
Biden’s been buying billions of barrels of Russian oil since he canceled the Keystone pipeline. Luckily for Zelensky, there are countries willing to help.
“Ukraine is not a native member state, so technically and formally and legally, we cannot defend as ally if we cannot defend Ukraine militarily,” Magierowski said. “But within the framework of international cooperation, I think we can keep delivering weapons to Ukraine.”
The Russian invasion has prompted 1.4 million refugees to flee the violence, according to reports. Many of those traveled across Ukraine’s border with Poland.
“There are now about 700,000 Ukrainian refugees who have crossed the border since the beginning of the hostilities,” said Magierowski.
The Polish ambassador pointed out that despite the country taking on hundreds of thousands of refugees, Poland hasn’t constructed a single refugee camp. Magierowski says this is because the Polish people have welcomed refugees into their homes.
“This is probably the very first refugee crisis in Europe in which no refugee camps have been set up,” he said
“And all those Ukrainians who have arrived in Poland have been admitted into Polish homes, which is pretty remarkable and really impressive.”
Impressive indeed. Definitely not what our gated-community-leftists would do.
