Russian military vehicles with ‘invasion stripes’ descend on Ukraine border



More than 100,000 Russian troops in assault vehicles painted with “invasion stripes” were headed to Ukraine’s border Wednesday, intensifying fears of war between the neighboring nations.

The advancing force includes 1,300 battle tanks, 3,700 drones, 1,300 artillery and mortar units and 380 multiple launch rocket systems, according to documents leaked to the Daily Mirror.

Tensions between the countries have been escalating following Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea territory in 2014, an attempt by Moscow to keep NATO away from its borders. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, but support for the organization has risen in recent years, and the country is allied with many NATO nations — including the US.

Kyiv has claimed 14,000 people have died in the ongoing conflict, and many fear that Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the COVID-19 pandemic is the right time to attack and control large parts of the country, according to the report.

President Biden made it clear that repercussions against Vladimir Putin and his country for their interference with U.S. policies.

The appearance of painted stripes on Russian armored vehicles headed to the front lines reminded military experts of similar stripes on tanks used by the Soviet army during the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia, the Mirror reports. The stripes are used as a deterrent to friendly fire.

The military exercise could also be seen as a challenge to the US, as President Biden is expected to impose sanctions against Russia for election interference, hacking and bounties on troops in Afghanistan.

The Biden administration has sent warships to the Black Sea to defend against the military buildup, and Russia has warned the US to stand down.

The Kremlin has claimed it is offering protection to pro-Russian citizens in East Ukraine, warning of a return of “Nazi Europe,” according to the article.

Russia has announced that it’s closing the strategic Kerch Strait until October under guise of military exercise.
This effectively closes the Ukrainian ports of Mariupol and Berdyansk to traffic.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is pissed
“Such actions of the Russian Federation are yet another attempt, in violation of the norms and principles of international law, to usurp the sovereign rights of Ukraine as a coastal state, since it is Ukraine that has the right to regulate shipping in these waters of the Black Sea,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen gives a speech after visiting the Navy’s 131st Fleet in Keelung

By Yimou Lee

TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen told emissaries visiting at U.S. President Joe Biden’s request on Thursday that the island would work with the United States to deter threats from Chinese military activities.

Former senior U.S. officials, including former U.S. Senator Chris Dodd and former Deputy Secretaries of State Richard Armitage and James Steinberg, are visiting Taipei in a trip to signal Biden’s commitment to Taiwan and its democracy.

Tsai told the U.S. delegation in a meeting at the Presidential Office that Chinese military activities in the region have threatened regional peace and stability.

“We are very willing to work with like-minded countries, including the United States, to jointly safeguard the peace and stability of the Indo-Pacific and deter adventurous manoeuvres and provocations,” Tsai said.

She vowed to continue to cooperate with the United States to counter “cognitive warfare” and misinformation, but did not elaborate.

Dodd told Tsai the Biden administration would be Taiwan’s “reliable, trusted friend,” which will help the island expand its international space and support its investment in self defence.

He added the U.S. partnership with Taiwan is “stronger than ever” and that the visit was to reaffirm Biden’s commitment to the island.

Tsai also told the delegation that Taiwan looks forward to resuming trade talks with the United States as soon as possible. Taipei has long sought a free trade deal with Washington.

Dan Biers, director of the State Department’s Office of Taiwan Coordination, is also part of the delegation.

Taiwan is China’s most sensitive territorial issue and a major source of contention with Washington, which is required by U.S. law to provide the island with the means to defend itself.

Taiwan has complained over the last few months about almost daily missions by China’s air force near its air defence identification zone (ADIZ). Twenty-five Chinese aircraft, including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers, entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Monday in the largest reported incursion to date.

China announced on Wednesday it would begin five days of live-fire drills off a part of its coast facing Taiwan, which Taiwan’s Defence Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng told reporters the country would pay close attention to.

“There’s some psychological impact, but don’t get too worked up about this. Everyone should have confidence in the armed forces,” he said.

Chiu will meet with the visiting Americans, his deputy Chang Che-ping told lawmakers.

The unofficial U.S. visit, which a White House official called a “personal signal” of the president’s commitment to Chinese-claimed Taiwan, is further straining Sino-U.S. relations.

China on Wednesday described its military exercises near Taiwan as “combat drills” and said the meeting of the U.S. officials with Tsai “will only exacerbate the tense situation in the Taiwan Strait”.

The China Visions: Online Church for Christ Prophetic Dream in Response to YouTube Presentation.

‘The China Visions: Keep your lamps lit!’ is a YouTube presentation by Hope Owens who details prophetic dreams concerning current end time events. It can be found here: https://youtu.be/gyQxPEwdyX4

After viewing this video, I asked the Lord for more information. Prior to sleep, in my mind’s eye, I saw a metallic scroll in bronze or gold, etched in a language and symbols that I did not recognise. Shortly afterwards, my dream revealed a world of darkness – when I walked away from my home there were no lights around me nor in the sky above. The friends and family in my home were subdued and I had the impression that the population had been reduced. Upon waking, I asked the Lord when this would happen. The image I saw was a “3”. I am unsure whether this is in days, weeks, months or years. I also heard (somehow), “Brace yourself”. This is unusual because I have asked for signs and messages from the Lord many times previoisly and this rarely happens. Let us trust in Jesus and pray that we will be in his presence soon. 🙏
