    Major air defences have been set up close to Vladimir Putin's forest palace just days after missiles were deployed near his official residence near Moscow in the latest sign that the Russian leader fears a direct strike on Russia from Ukraine. A Pantsir-S1 defence system has been deployed near Putin's Valdai presidential palace in Yascherovo, a village midway between Moscow and St Petersburg. Similar systems have been deployed to Putin's official residence in Novo-Ogarevo in the past week, evidently to protect him from Ukrainian drones or missiles. Russia has also deployed the Pantsir-S1 and S-400 'Triumf' air defence systems across Moscow amid evident fears of a full-scale attack on the capital city from Ukraine.

    There is “mounting evidence” that Russian forces have committed “systemic war crimes" in every region "where Russia’s forces have been deployed" in Ukraine, Beth Van Schaack, U.S. ambassador-at-large for global criminal justice, told reporters on Monday. The U.S. has seen “deliberate, indiscriminate, and disproportionate attacks against the civilian population and elements of the civilian infrastructure,” she said, adding that they’ve also received intelligence on “custodial abuses of civilians and [prisoners of war] and efforts to cover up these crimes.” Russia most recently withdrew from the Kherson region in the south, a strategic city it had occupied since the early days of the war. Ukrainian officials are still uncovering the apparent war crimes committed by Russian forces during their occupation. RUSSIA TARGETS UKRAINIAN INFRASTRUCTURE AHEAD OF LONG, HARD WINTER Denys Monastyrsky, Ukraine’s interior minister, said last week that investigators had discovered more than 60 bodies that showed signs of torture, though he noted the number will almost definitely continue to rise. He said they had uncovered 436 different war crimes committed in Kherson. The situation in Kherson is the latest in...
    A Russian anti-tank mine that had previously not been seen on the battlefield has been discovered in Ukraine, according to reports. When triggered, the PTKM-1R top-attack mine launches itself into the air above its target, before attacking from above in a potentially deadly strike. Sensors in the mine detect to the sound of approaching vehicles, and compare the audio it picks up to a pre-determined target list. This, its manufacturers say, means it won't be triggered when civilian vehicles pass by. According to The Daily Telegraph, Russia's armies began using the 45lb PTKM-1R in 2020. Analysts have said it is similar to the US-made M93 Hornet Wide-Area Munition, which is also a top-attack mine. A picture was shared on Twitter from Ukraine of one of the mines placed in a field. The photograph was reportedly taken on April 26.   Sensors in the mine detect to the sound of approaching vehicles, and compare the audio it picks up to a pre-determined target list. Once triggered, the mins tilts to a 30 degree angle and launches its explosive warhead into the air, scanning...

    SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — U.S. soldiers continued to deploy Friday to Europe, joining thousands already sent overseas to support NATO allies amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. About 130 soldiers from the 87th Division Sustainment Support Battalion, 3rd Division Sustainment Brigade, lined up with rucksacks inside a terminal at Hunter Airfield in Savannah before marching outside and boarding their chartered flight. It departed amid grey skies and rain. Republican U.S. Rep. Earl “Buddy” Carter, of Pooler, Georgia, was among those in attendance. He was seen “fist-bumping” many of the soldiers as they boarded the plane. The battalion’s soldiers are in addition to the estimated 3,800 soldiers from the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division who have deployed in recent weeks from nearby Fort Stewart, said Lt. Col. Lindsey Elder, the division’s spokesperson. Spec. Danton Belucio, who has served in the Army for three years, said he looked forward to going on his first deployment. “I’ve always wanted to actually go on one to do something different,” he said. “It makes me feel like I’m helping somebody.” Maj. Gen. Charles Costanza, the 3rd Infantry’s...
    First Lady Jill Biden stopped at Fort Campbell in Kentucky to thank military families whose loved ones have been deployed to NATO countries amid Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.  'The president and I are so proud of you, the members of the 101st Airborne Division, who are helping keep our promise to NATO,' she told family members at a Wednesday night barbeque on the base.  'We are holding Putin accountable for his war through diplomacy and crippling sanctions. We are providing Ukraine with economic, humanitarian and security assistance,' the first lady added.  Biden talked about how big the current moment felt.   'There are moments when we suddenly realize that history is being written in front of us - when we can almost feel ourselves cross the line that will divide our world into "before" and "after,"' she said.

    With the Russian invasion of Ukraine continuing, over 4,000 US Army troops deployed to Europe are going to have their tours of duty extended.  The extension, announced Sunday, is part of the United States' effort to instill confidence in their eastern European allies during the crisis.  'I don't want to speculate on a timeline, but be assured it will only be for as long as they are needed,' John Tomassi, a spokesman for the Army in Europe, told CNN when asked about a time frame for this continued deployment. The troops - members of the 1st Armored Brigade Combat team of the 1st Infantry Division - were scheduled to return following nine months abroad in March. The teams will now continue their training and deterrence missions alongside troops from Poland, Romania and the Baltic states.  Paratroopers assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division, assist with humanitarian aid in support of the US Agency for International Development Firefighters inspect the damage at a building following a rocket attack on the city of Kyiv A map of the United States' military bases in...
    "Russia's attack on Ukraine is more than an attack on Ukraine. It's a devastating horrendous attack on innocent people in Ukraine, but it's also an attack on the whole European security order. And that's the reason why we take it so extremely seriously," he added. U.S. President Joe Biden has also deployed troops to eastern Europe to secure NATO countries bordering the conflict. The president has made clear that these troops are being deployed as a defensive measure, and they will not be sent into Ukraine to engage with Russian forces. NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Tod Wolters said the activation of response forces was "historic" in a statement. "This is an historic moment and the very first time the Alliance has employed these high readiness forces in a deterrence and defense role. They represent a flexible, combat credible force that can be employed in multiple ways and we are utilizing fully their inherent agility," Wolters said. "These deterrence measures are prudent and enhance our speed, responsiveness and capability to shield and protect the one billion citizens we...

And another 800 soldiers are being redeployed from Italy to shore up NATO's eastern flank. Details emerged on Tuesday, after President Joe Biden laid out his administration's response to escalating Russian aggression, insisting that any moves were defensive and that he would not be sending US armed forces into fight Russia  President Biden on Tuesday stressed that the additional troop movements were defensive in nature.   'Today, in response to Russia’s admission that it will not withdraw its forces from Belarus, I have authorized additional movements of U.S. forces and equipment already stationed in Europe to strengthen our Baltic Allies - Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania,' he said at the White House. 'Let me be clear: These are totally defensive...
    The first set of U.S. troops sent to reinforce NATO allies in Eastern Europe arrived in Poland on Saturday amid a Russian buildup of troops along the Russian-Ukrainian border. Approximately 300 members of the United States 82nd Airborne Division arrived near Poland's border with Ukraine on Saturday, with a total of 3,000 service members expected to deploy to Poland and Romania.
