THE LATEST:

CNBC is reporting that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told British Prime Minister that their military had destroyed a “significant” of a Russian convoy overnight. He said the armored convoy crossed into Ukraine. A spokesperson for the Ukrainian military said they had tracked the Russian armored convoy as soon as it had crossed into their country. The spokesperson said they took “appropriate actions.”

Journalists from The Guardian and the Telegraph said the convoy Ukraine attacked was clearly made up of military machines. They said they saw at least 23 military vehicles, including armored personal carriers, fuel trucks and a number of other logistics vehicles that were marked with Russian military plates. They said the convoy passed through a break in the border fence and into Ukraine.

Russia accuses Ukraine of trying to keep it from providing humanitarian aid to the eastern part of Ukraine. Moscow demanded a ceasefire there so that it could deliver humanitarian supplies. Russia added that it had previously agreed with Ukraine about the path its aid convoys would take through Ukraine. Russia also said its foreign minister is still taking with Kiev about the humanitarian aid missions.

  1. If World War 3 happens it would be the end of many, if not all. The fact that nowadays everyone threatens to use their nuclear weapons spells doom. Plus Russia has a system called Dead Hand where, even if we manage to beat them, their nuclear missiles will still launch against the northern hemisphere, you should check it out. We don’t need a WW3. I believe it will happen but that is the last thing we need
