Pledges to send more military assistance to Ukraine and Russian warnings

Boris Johnson pledges to send more arms during surprise visit to Kyiv

The Guardian, April 10, 2022, wrote

Boris Johnson has made a surprise trip to Kyiv to meet the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, pledging a major new infusion of British arms and financial aid to help counter the expected deadly new phase in Russia’s military offensive.

After the meeting on Saturday, the prime minister said:

Ukraine has defied the odds and pushed back Russian forces from the gates of Kyiv, achieving the greatest feat of arms of the 21st century. “

It is because of president Zelensky’s resolute leadership and the invincible heroism and courage of the Ukrainian people that Putin’s monstrous aims are being thwarted. I made clear today that the United Kingdom stands unwaveringly with them in this ongoing fight, and we are in it for the long run.

“We are stepping up our own military and economic support and convening a global alliance to bring this tragedy to an end, and ensure Ukraine survives and thrives as a free and sovereign nation.”

Comment

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has abruptly transformed the world. Millions of people have already fled. A new Iron Curtain is grinding into place. An economic war deepens, as the military conflict escalates, civilian casualties rise and evidence of horrific war crimes mounts. We are surely witnessing a huge “contraction” coming hot on the heals of another worldwide “contraction” with Covid. The Bible says that the king of the south (US/UK) will PUSH at Gog (Putin) the king in Daniel 11 v 36-39. Notice how Boris Johnson talks about how Ukraine has “pushed back” Russian forces. It has done so with huge military support from the UK. No 10 said Britain would send 120 armoured vehicles and new anti-ship missile systems to Ukraine. The push is underway…

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [UK/US] push [militarily provoke] at him [Gog]: and the king of the north [Russia] shall come against him [UK/US] like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)

Joe Biden pledges helicopters and artillery to help fight invasion

The Telegraph April 14

President Joe Biden has announced an additional $800 million in US military assistance to Ukraine including helicopters, artillery systems and armoured personnel carriers.

“We cannot rest now. As I assured President Zelensky, the American people will continue to stand with the brave Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom,”

Biden said. He added that equipment provided to Ukraine “has been critical” as it confronts the invasion. Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said the United States had a wide variety of additional sanctions that it could impose on Russia over its invasion of  Ukraine. Meanwhile, Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, has said that a humanitarian ceasefire in Ukraine does not seem possible at the moment.

Comment

As well as accusing Putin of genocide, Biden is also upping the ante by sending even more weapons and military hardware to Ukraine. In a matter of days a massive shipment of arms is due to arrive at the unidentified base in Poland, including 18 towed 155mm howitzers with 40,000 artillery rounds, 14 counter-artillery radars, two Sentinel air defence radars, 200 armoured personnel carriers and 11 Mi-17 Hip helicopters. However, with the imminent arrival of artillery and counter-battery radars, Pentagon officials have revealed for the first time that training will be necessary on these weapons systems. It’s a significant development in the American and Nato military support programme for Ukraine. This is part of the push against Gog (Putin). The US/UK sense that Russia is on the back foot and are pressing their advantage. But Putin has not played all his own cards in this war. We can expect him to cause ever greater levels of destruction. All this will lead to Putin invading Israel for a spoil….

a fierce king, a master of intrigue, will rise to power. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause a shocking amount of destruction and succeed in everything he does. He will destroy powerful leaders and devastate the holy people (Daniel 8;23-24 NLT)

Russia warns U.S. to stop arming Ukraine

April 15

Russia sent a formal warning to the US not to send more arms to Ukraine or it could face “unpredictable consequences”, it has been reported. According to the Washington Post, Moscow sent a diplomatic note, a démarche, warning that US and Nato deliveries of the “most sensitive” weapons systems to Ukraine were “adding fuel” to the conflict there and could bring “unpredictable consequences”.

A spokesperson said the state department did not confirm any diplomatic correspondence as a matter of course, and made clear that the US would continue to send arms to Ukraine.

“What we can confirm is that, along with allies and partners, we are providing Ukraine with billions of dollars worth of security assistance, which our Ukrainian partners are using to extraordinary effect to defend their country against Russia’s unprovoked aggression and horrific acts of violence,”

the spokesperson said.

Comment

Russia has issued a number of dire warnings the 2nd week of April. We have had the sinister warning about “unpredictable consequences”, as the US and UK arm Ukraine. We have also had Russia warning that it will boost its forces in the Baltic region, including with nuclear missiles, if Finland and Sweden join Nato.

Sweden and Finland held neutral status throughout the Cold War, but Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine has triggered a spike in support for joining Nato. Both countries face Russia across the Baltic Sea and Finland shares an 830-mile land border. They could join Nato as early as this summer, officials say. An iron curtain is descending across Europe. The West is dividing from the East. The division of East and West remains to the end. The dragon (Russia) and the Beast (EU) still exist as separate entities according to Revelation.

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. (Revelation 16:13-14)
