(ConservativeInsider.org) – Tensions between Russia and Ukraine have run high since the 2014 Ukrainian revolution. But, this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin ratcheted up pressure on the border when he deployed over 100,000 additional troops to the battlefront.
On Wednesday, April 14, reports showed that 1,300 Russian tanks, 3,700 drones, 380 rocket launchers, and 1300 artillery units moved together as part of Putin’s advanced force headed to Ukraine’s border. Photographs from the movement show stripes on the tanks reminiscent of the ones painted on tanks from the Soviet’s invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

The United States has a poor track record of staying out of international conflicts, so we will most likely pick a side quite soon. So, with such a high-alert situation, President Joe Biden must keep his cards close in order to keep the upper hand on all involved as we watch this display unfold.
