    Zelenskyy: Russians create ‘complete disaster’ with mines

    KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned his people early Saturday that retreating Russian forces were creating “a complete disaster” outside the capital as they leave mines across “the whole territory,” including around homes and corpses.

    He issued the warning as the humanitarian crisis in the encircled city of Mariupol deepened, with Russian forces blocking evacuation operations for the second day in a row. Meanwhile, the Kremlin accused the Ukrainians of launching a helicopter attack on a fuel depot on Russian soil.

    Ukraine denied responsibility for the fiery blast, but if Moscow’s claim is confirmed, it would be the war’s first known attack in which Ukrainian aircraft penetrated Russian airspace.

    “Certainly, this is not something that can be perceived as creating comfortable conditions for the continuation of the talks,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, five weeks after Moscow began sending upwards of 150,000 of its own troops across Ukraine’s border.

    I wonder what Paul McCartney, oh excuse me Sir Paul, now thinks of his concert in Moscow? With Putin in attendance, and Paul playing his song "Back in the USSR" written when he was with the Beatles.

    Certainly an awful lot of irony going on in this video. Sir Paul glorifying the USSR, while Putin wishes to bring it back.

    Notice the words "no more land mines" on Paul's t-shirt. Putin obviously scoffed at that message, as according to the article, Russia has placed deadly land mines across the Ukraine territory.
