Biden to take aim at Putin in SOTU and argue America 'was ready' to make Russia 'pay'

Excerpts from President Biden's State of the Union Address take direct aim at Russian President Vladimir Putin, arguing the Russian leader was "wrong" to invade his neighbor in the face of united western resistance.

"Throughout our history we’ve learned this lesson – when dictators do not pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos. They keep moving. And, the costs and threats to America and the world keep rising," Biden will say.

"That’s why the NATO Alliance was created to secure peace and stability in Europe after World War 2. The United States is a member along with 29 other nations.

 It matters. American diplomacy matters.

 Putin’s war was premeditated and unprovoked. He rejected efforts at diplomacy. He thought the West and NATO wouldn’t respond. And, he thought he could divide us here at home.

 Putin was wrong. We were ready."

A Ukrainian hacker's tale of how he is aiding the land war by battling Russia for the cloud

A Ukrainian hacker using his laptop to battle Russian disinformation and take down propaganda bots amid an ongoing invasion of his homeland says his people are "more united than ever" as they face off with a world power. 

When Russia’s invasion of Ukraine went from a hypothetical threat to a grim reality on February 24th, Petro Tsymbalistyi, a web developer from Lviv, traveled with his wife Mariia and their two children to the Polish border so they could wait out the conflict at a friend’s home in the neighboring country. 

After waiting 14 hours in a 2.5-mile line of cars at the Ukraine-Poland border, Tsymbalistyi and his family began to notice fathers walking back toward home without their wives or children.  It was then they learned that male citizens were no longer permitted to cross the border out of Ukraine.

Russia state media prematurely declared victory, hailed 'new world' in now-deleted report

Russian state-aligned media outlet RIA posted and deleted an article over the weekend that hailed Vladimir Putin for victory over Ukraine as Russia helps usher in a supposed "new world." 

In what some have already labeled an "embarrassing and revealing" mistake, RIA pushed the article out and quickly deleted it. The article carries a date and timestamp of Feb. 26 at 8 a.m. and remains web-archived and available via the WayBack Machine to read in full. 

The report starts off by underscoring the victory as "restoring" Russia’s unity, not just geographically returning the country to its historical borders and reversing "the tragedy of 1991," but also hailing the country’s ability to overcome "temporary division."

US has ‘no argument’ to make no-fly zone over Ukraine: ‘just not going to happen’

A senior U.S. defense official told Fox News that President Biden has ruled out setting up a no-fly zone over Ukraine. 

The current stance holds that a no-fly zone would mean the U.S. had entered the conflict, which Biden has said is not on the table. 

“The President had been clear that US troops, US forces will not be used inside Ukraine,” the official said. 

But the official added that the Russian convoy has made “no appreciable movement” towards Kyiv, and soldiers are running out of food. The official said there is “no reason to doubt” reports that Russian soldiers are also punching holes in their own fuel tanks to stop their vehicles advancing.

Russian troops stalled north of Kyiv, running out of gas and food: US official

Russian combat forces north of Kyiv have not advanced since Monday and have been running out of food and gas, a senior U.S. defense official said Tuesday.

More than 80% of the pre-staged Russian combat power is now inside Ukraine, the official said.

The official added that the "stall" north of Kyiv is due in part to tough Ukrainian resistance and "fuel and sustainment problems." The lack of advance could also be a result of Russia regrouping, rethinking or reevaluating their strategy, the official said.

A "significant number" of Russian troops are conscripts, the official said, describing them as "very young men drafted into service" who may not have been fully trained or aware that they would be participating in combat operations.

The U.S. is picking up indications that morale is flagging in some of these units, the defense official added.

But Russia has made some gains in the southern part of Ukraine after occupying Malitopol and Berdyansk.
