Jesse Watters: Russia-Ukraine conflict is a 'proxy war'

Jesse Watters said Monday that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine was a proxy war between the West and Russia. 

Watters said he believes Biden's foreign policy decisions, including "dangling NATO membership over Ukraine's head" enticed  Russian President Vladimir Putin to push forward on his expansionist ambitions.  

"This move directly taunted Putin. He was furious and accelerated his mobilization against his neighbor. Did we have a plan for Ukraine? What did we expect?" the "Jesse Watters Primetime" host said. (READ MORE)

Zelenskyy defiantly provides his location in Kyiv: ‘I’m not afraid of anyone’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy vowed not to leave Ukraine's capital of Kyiv, going so far as to reveal his location as Russian forces continue their assault on the city.

"On Bankova Street," Zelenskyy said in a Monday social media post. "Not hiding, and I’m not afraid of anyone." Bankova Street is where the presidential offices are located.

Saving Ukraine: Looking for a world leader to stand up

The world has rallied behind the Churchillian figure of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for his bravery and resilience in the defense of his country. Zelenskyy in his speeches has thrown down the gauntlet to world leaders by telling them to stand up and do more to help.

"Slava Ukraini (glory to Ukraine)," was how Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson ended a video address to Ukrainians last week. His opening remarks were also in Ukrainian. Johnson speaks regularly to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and observers think he could be the world leader to shine in absence of strong U.S. leadership. 

Last week following the Russian attack on the Ukrainian nuclear station Johnson immediately called for a U.N. Security Council meeting on the attack, and Monday in London, Johnson seemed to be leading the way as he stood alongside the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte and Canada’s Justin Trudeau to rally international support for Ukraine.

Psaki claims Keystone XL Pipeline would make no difference for rising gas prices

White House press secretary Jen Psaki suggested Monday that the Keystone XL Pipeline, the construction of which President Biden canceled on his first day in office, would not have made a difference in the nation's skyrocketing gas prices.

Psaki made the claim in response to questions from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy, who asked her why the Biden administration is seemingly blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin for rising U.S. gas prices, which hit a new record high of $4.104 on Monday, surpassing the previous record of $4.103 set in 2008, according to data from GasBuddy.

"Weren't gas prices going up anyway because of post-pandemic supply chain issues?" Doocy asked.

Citing unnamed "outside analysts," Psaki replied that "the increase and anticipated continued increase" of gas prices is "a direct result of the invasion of Ukraine."

Russian military shells a second nuclear facility in Ukraine

Russian forces have damaged a second nuclear facility "by shelling" Monday, though authorities say there has not been an "increase in radiation levels" at the site.

Russian forces damaged a nuclear facility near Kharkiv that contains nuclear material and reactor that could cause a "'large-scale ecological disaster" Sunday, coming just a day after Russian forces shelled Europe's largest nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia.

The attacks on power plants have caused concern about a nuclear outbreak similar to the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

We should 'starve Putin of money': Browder warns we're only scratching the surface with sanctions

‘Red Notice’ author and financier Bill Browder joined Fox News Contributor Douglas Murray, Thursday, to discuss how the bill he fought for, the Magnitsky Act, could be used to further sanction Russia. In his ‘Battle for Ukraine’ appearance on Fox Nation, Browder explained how he discovered and exposed ‘massive corruption’ during his time as the ‘largest foreign investor’ in Russia before President Vladimir Putin expelled him from the country in 2005 - and why he believes the Magnitsky Act might be the best way to stop him in his tracks.

BILL BROWDER:  The Magnitsky Act, which freezes the assets and bans the Visas of human rights abusers…in Russia. It passed in the United States on December 14, 2012. It now exists in 34 other countries. And Vladimir Putin has come after me personally in most dramatic ways with death threats, kidnappings threats… extradition requests, and everything else you can think of.

The Biden administration is considering a possible ban of oil imports from Russia to the United States, but "no decision has been made at this time," an administration official told Fox News.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that the administration is speaking with partners and allies "to look, in a coordinated way, at the prospect of banning the import of Russian oil, while making sure there is still an appropriate supply of oil on world markets.

Ukrainian mother who fled Kyiv says her children ‘just cry and worry’

A Ukrainian mother who fled Kyiv for Poland with her three children told Fox News’ Lauren Blanchard in an emotional interview Monday that she was forced to leave to “save their lives.” 

“If I [did] not have three children I would have not left Kyiv, I would help some way, me and my husband and my mom, we would help [people] some way, but obviously with little children we were forced to leave to save their lives,” Irina Skrypnyk said in Korczowa, Poland, about 3.5 miles from the Ukrainian border. 

“We had a very good life in Ukraine, in Kyiv, we love our country but we left [so] our children would have a future,” she continued. 

Skrypnyk said her three children – the youngest being just seven months old -- “just cry and worry” as they aren’t old enough to understand what is going on. 

Skrypnyk also said she has a hope that “people will be kind to us” as she and other refugees disperse throughout Europe

“I wish we win. I want Ukraine [to] bring victory,” she added.

As Ukraine's moms flee to Poland amid war, they're greeted by gifts of baby strollers

Amid the ongoing Russian attacks on Ukraine that began on Feb. 24, 2022, scores of desperate Ukrainians have been continuing to flee for their lives. 

Most of those fleeing are mothers, children and infants. 

These families have been making their way to neighboring countries such as Poland, Moldova, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia. 

Yet even with the grimness and ghastliness of war, gestures of hope and kindness are shining brightly for refugees who are crossing the border into these countries.

In a show of great thoughtfulness, for example, mothers in Poland have been donating fully outfitted baby strollers and leaving them at the train station in Przemysl.

Russian military commander POW claims forces were told 'Nazis' had overtaken Ukraine

A Russian military commander and prisoner of war in Ukraine said he and his forces were led to believe they were invading the country because "nationalists, Nazis have seized power," according to a video that surfaced Monday. 

Russian Lt. Col. Astakhov Dmitry Mikhailovich was flanked by two badly bruised men as he said they were told in Russia "that Ukraine's territory is dominated by fascist's regime," according to video shared by Ukraine’s News Channel 24, via a translation from the New York Post. 

"Nationalists, Nazi's have seized power," Mikhailovich went on, about what he and his troops were allegedly told. 

He added: "You are in a tense situation going against your own commander. But this is a genocide. The people are just killed."

A senior U.S. defense official tells Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has committed nearly 100 percent of Russia’s pre-staged combat power to the invasion of Ukraine

There are now around 100,000 U.S. military personnel stationed or being rotated into Europe.

Blinken calls out Russia for attacks on civilians as war crimes review 'ongoing'

Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday called out Russian forces for their reported attacks of "agreed upon humanitarian corridors," urging Russia to "stop these attacks immediately," as the Biden administration continues its ongoing review of whether Russian aggression against civilians has reached the level of war crimes. 

During a joint press conference with Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs, Blinken slammed Russia’s ongoing "unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine," which began 12 days ago.

Since then, Blinken said, "more than 1.5 million people, mostly women and children, have had to flee Ukraine, flee their homes."

"In the last several days, more strikes have killed and wounded civilians as they try to leave the cities that are being surrounded by Russian forces," Blinken said, pointing to the "women and children, the elderly, wounded civilians, people with disabilities" trying to "escape cities where there’s no heat, no electricity, relentless bombardment, and where they’re running out of food and medicine.

UN says 406 civilians killed so far in Ukraine war

The United Nations' Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights announced Monday that 406 civilians have been killed and 801 have been injured in Ukraine since fighting began on Feb. 24.

Of those 406 deceased, 27 are children.

"Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multi-launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes," the office said in a statement.

"OHCHR believes that the real figures are considerably higher, especially in Government- controlled territory and especially in recent days, as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have been going on has been delayed and many reports are still pending corroboration," it added.

Ukraine rejects Russia proposal to evacuate citizens to Russia, Belarus

A senior Ukrainian official on Monday rejected a Russian proposal to evacuate Ukrainian civilians to Russia and Belarus -- a country that has acted as a springboard for Moscow's military invasion.

“This is an unacceptable option for opening humanitarian corridors,” Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk said at a briefing, according to the Associated Press.

The Russian proposal floated that the only options for civilians fleeing Kyiv and its suburbs would be to go to Gomel in neighboring Belarus. Civilians in Kharkiv and Sumy in eastern Ukraine would have to flee to the Russian city of Belgorod.

Belarus is a key ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin and served as a launching ground for Russia's invasion.

The Ukrainian government is proposing eight humanitarian corridors, including from the southern port of Mariupol, that would allow civilians to travel to the western regions of Ukraine, where there is no Russian shelling.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Mines found along Mariupol evacuation route for civilians: 'Hugely dangerous situation'

An official with the International Committee of the Red Cross said Monday that mines have been found along an intended evacuation route for civilians in the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol

Dominik Stillhart, ICRC’s director of operations, said the discovery by one of its teams attempting an evacuation underpinned calls from the humanitarian group for both sides to “agree on the details for safe civilian passage, including what time, exactly what road, who can leave, and if medical supplies can come in.”

“Without this kind of agreement the situation is extremely perilous for civilians,” Stillhart said, adding that the presence of mines is creating a "hugely dangerous situation."

The ICRC is currently working to evacuate an estimated 200,000 people out of Mariupol, according to the Associated Press.

China touts 'friendship' with Russia: 'Most important strategic partner'

The Chinese Foreign Minister called Moscow the "most important strategic partner" to Beijing as war rages between Russia and Ukraine for the 12th day.

"No matter how perilous the international landscape, we will maintain our strategic focus and promote the development of a comprehensive China-Russia partnership in the new era," Wang Yi told reporters Monday at a news conference of the annual meeting of China’s ceremonial parliament.

"The friendship between the two peoples is iron clad," he said, and noted that Chinese ties to Russia constitute "one of the most crucial bilateral relationships in the world."

China has broken with the U.S., Europe and others that have imposed sanctions on Russia after its invasion of Ukraine

Chinese officials last week said they are not considering sanctioning Russia for the invasion, instead continuing with "normal trade cooperation."

Zelenskyy urges global boycott of Russian products if war continues

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in an Instagram post Monday, is calling for "new sanction steps against the war, for the sake of peace" if Russia continues its ongoing military action in Ukraine.

"Boycotts of Russian exports, namely refusal from oil and oil products from Russia," he wrote. "It may be called embargo, but it also simply may be called moral when you refuse to give money to a terrorist."

"Boycott of imports into Russia if they don`t want to follow civilized rules, then they should also not be getting any goods or services from civilization," Zelenskyy continued. "Let the war feed them. [The] International community has to act even with bigger resolution. When somebody loses one`s mind, it is needed to forget about fear and commerce. One needs to defend oneself, both states and companies have to be ethical. One has to fight against [an] inhuman force, which is trying to destroy humanity itself."

Russia skips UN court hearing on Ukraine war

Russia has failed to appear Monday at the United Nations’ highest court for a hearing in which Ukraine is seeking an emergency order to halt Moscow’s invasion

The gathering at the International Court of Justice in the Netherlands is focused on a 1948 treaty signed between both sides regarding the prevention of genocide, according to Reuters. Ukraine is arguing that Russia has been falsely claiming a genocide has been happening in eastern Ukraine and is using that as a justification for its ongoing military action. 

"The fact that Russia's seats are empty speaks loudly,” Ukrainian politician Anton Korynevych was quoted as saying. “They are not here in this court of law: they are on a battlefield waging an aggressive war against my country.” 

"Russia must be stopped and the court has a role to play in stopping it," he added.

Russian shelling prevents evacuations, Ukraine says

Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian civilians attempting to flee to safety have been forced to shelter from Russian shelling the pummeled cities in Ukraine's center, north, and south, Ukrainian officials told the Associated Press.

Ukrainian officials described a "catastrophic" situation during failed evacuation efforts in the Kyiv suburbs. Officials from both sides planned a third round of talks on Monday.

Bombings left horrific scenes of death in Kyiv, Kharkiv, and the area around Mariupol, where Russia and Ukraine had agreed to a temporary ceasefire to allow civilians to escape. Ukraine accused Russia of continuing to assault the city during that time, while Russia blamed Ukrainian nationalists for instigating the fighting. Only about 300 people of a planned 200,000 had evacuated the area, according to a Donetsk separatist official.
