Russia-Ukraine war: Putin lays waste to cities

March 2, 2022

Bombardment pulverises schools and hospitals as civilian deaths ‘pass 2,000’ amid claims Kherson has fallen. Russian forces shelled schools, hospitals and homes across Ukraine yesterday as President Putin’s invasion threatened to escalate into a long war of attrition. Moscow inflicted sustained rocket attacks on the city of Kharkiv after Ukrainian forces halted the advance of troops in a sign of what awaits other cities that defy the invasion. The port city of Mariupol came under heavy and indiscriminate shelling, with hospitals overflowing with dead and wounded.

“Kharkiv today is the Stalingrad of the 21st century,”

said Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser to President Zelensky, who remained in the capital, Kyiv, to lead his country’s defence. Zelensky said of the Russians:

“They don’t know a thing about Kyiv, about our history. But they all have orders to erase our history, erase our country, erase us all.”

He had earlier decried the attacks on crowded cities as “frank, undisguised terror” and a war crime.

The world has changed almost overnight. Everyone is horrified at the shocking destruction (led by one man – Vladimir Putin) against Ukraine. But as NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said yesterday,

“the worst is still to come.”

The Russian army is bogged down in certain areas of Ukraine with poor supply lines and low food and fuel supplies. Many soldiers only had enough food for 3 days, leading military analysts to conclude that Putin thought this would be a short conflict. But Putin will win this war. He will not back down. He will resort to ever increasing violence to get what he wants.

The Bible says of Putin that he will

“cause a shocking amount of destruction”

and also

“he will destroy many without warning.”

This is what he is doing…

He will cause a shocking amount of destruction and succeed in everything he does. He will destroy powerful leaders and devastate the holy people. He will be a master of deception and will become arrogant; he will destroy many without warning. These verses describe a latter day Antiochus Epiphanes [ancient king of the north] who lives at the time of the end. (Daniel 8:24-25 NLT)
