Eminent domain, manifest destiny, usurpation

Eminent domain, manifest destiny, usurpation... Russian soldiers in general and Vladimir Putin in particular perpetrate outright injustice against Ukrainian population. Impossible mission to comprehend the mindset of belligerent, egotistical, indignant, NeoNazi, tsarist self anointed totalitarian zealot. Gross violation of human rights blatantly carried out courtesy diabolical genocidal horror directly linkedin to Kremlin official residence of president of Russian Federation since 1991. Jackknifed world wide web teeters on the brink of economic collapse as mayhem rents asunder western country Ukraine the general Slavic word for 'frontier region' and 'marches' which referred, most likely, to territories of Kyivan Rus'. Violation of basic covenant imposes life and death decision for multitudes to flee their homeland forsaking personal property and cherished mementos irreplaceable treasured trappings left for invaders to ransack. Those very villainous vultures (metaphorically speaking or writing) namely enemy Russian soldiers bolster weaponry equipage with disproportionate advanced terrorizing precision machines such as warplanes and Kalibr (Caliber) cruise missiles, carried by warplanes; and Iskander missiles allowing, enabling, and providing a range of up to 500 kilometers (around 300 miles); The Soviet-designed Grad (Hail), Smerch (Tornado) and Uragan (Hurricane) multiple rocket launchers designed to fire a salvo of powerful rockets to destroy concentrations of troops or military equipment; Cluster munitions and thermobaric weapons. Mass exodus of population floods neighboring countries Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Moldova dazed and confused refugees making journey across borders crammed analogous to sardines nevertheless hospitable strangers welcome them with opened arms. Without question scads of people vulnerable to psychological ills oversaturated with melancholia concerning countless losses, albeit violently wrenched out their homeland, whereat sons and father mandated to stay behind and defend the motherland against surfeit of military might. Meanwhile daughters and mothers the latter saddled, and encumbered with small children and pets trundle toward safe haven instantaneous citizenship guaranteed no holds barred, nor no bolds hard. Contrast the above with other persecuted peoples most allotted with melanin and insync with attendant definitive physical characteristics populating marginalized jinxed African, Central/South American, Haitian, Mexican... regions suffer worse fate than death beleaguered, destitute hardship linkedin with cutthroat fearsome insidious lurking opportunistic ravenous United States agents ready to deport and send them back, where certain misery and interminable suffering predictable as Earth will rotate along 23.5 degrees from plane of its orbit around the sun come the morrow. Though aghast at grave atrocity within the killing zone of Ukraine will subsequently reconfigure, rejigger, and reshuffle the Russian syndicate of extreme wealth including Putin controlling, governing, and manipulating the franchise.
