Update on the War in Ukraine

The Crimean bridge blows up. The British tails the Russians out of the skies.


The Crimean Bridge Blown to Bits

Russia took a big blow from the loss of the Crimean bridge, one of the only passage ways through which Russia could bring resources to the Crimean Peninsula via road. It’s a bigger risk for the Russians to reach them by sea because Russia’s navy is not nearly as resourced as the Russian armed forces. There’s a big question on what does Russia have to do. Things have been looking up for Ukraine. According to Daniel Boffey of “The Guardian,” this might lead the Russian government to consider why this started and should this continue.

The Dutch and British Air Forces Drive the Russian Air Force Out of the Skies

In the coastal city of Odesa, Russian bombers were forced out of the airspace because the real RAF and Dutch Air Force chased them out of the territory. The RAF never engaged in combat but was on the Russian’s tail the entire time they were there. Why were the British and Dutch there? The Russians were violating British airspace and the Dutch’s motivations are unclear. This begs the question of whether it is the British joining the war and then NATO getting involved. According to Susan Blann of AP News, this could be the beginning of the very first thermonuclear war.

The Failure of the Russian Armed Forces

The Ukrainian’s will to withstand Russian harassment has been shocking. What most of the world expected was a fast but crushing defeat for the Ukrainian’s. But that has been proven wrong. According to the Journalism Visual Team at the BBC, the Ukraine has shown great resilience. The biggest city Russia has captured is Donetsk, which is over 400 miles away from Kiev.
