Denmark has announced its intention to send its entire artillery stocks to Ukraine, a move that will surely leave Copenhagen defenseless the moment a major conflict breaks out.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen made this announcement during the Munich Security Conference 2024 held in the German city from Feb. 16 to 18. She also appealed to other European countries to do more to help Ukraine in its fight against Russia.

"They are asking us for ammunition now, artillery now. From the Danish side, we decided to donate our entire artillery," said Frederiksen. 

Over 9,000 Ukrainians have crossed into Romania illegally since the beginning of the armed conflict, says Florin Coman, Chief Inspector of the Sighetu-Marmatiei Territorial Inspectorate of the Border Police.

"Since the beginning of the conflict, […] over 9,000 (exactly 9,112) Ukrainian citizens aged between 18 and 60, have been discovered on Romania’s northern border, who told border security forces that they fled Ukraine because of the war," he said.

Moscow bears responsibility for the conflict between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni claimed in an interview with il Giornale newspaper published on Saturday. It was Russia’s military campaign against Ukraine that supposedly encouraged Hamas to launch a massive attack against Israel on October 7, 2023, she stated.

The leaders of Italy and Canada signed security agreements with Ukraine during their visit to Kiev on Saturday, marking the beginning of the third year of the fighting between Ukraine and Russia.

According to the deal signed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Ottawa will provide Can$3.02 billion (US$2.2 billion) “in macroeconomic and military support.”

Kiev reserves the right to retaliate against Poland if it does not convince protesting farmers to stop blocking the border crossings, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmigal said on Friday.

The Polish farmers accuse both Kiev and Warsaw of threatening their livelihood by allowing imports of cheap Ukrainian grain and other agricultural products. 

US entrepreneur Elon Musk said outgoing Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte does not have the legal authority to sign a security treaty with Ukraine for ten years.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO made the statement in response to a post by political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek on social network X regarding the Netherlands’ ten-year military assistance agreement with Ukraine. Vlaardingerbroek said “the opinion of the Dutch People” had not been asked.

"Doesn’t seem like he [Rutte] has the legal authority to do this," Musk wrote in response.

Poland might very well be put up by its dual American-German patrons into carrying out a possible false flag provocation in order to generate popular support for the bloc’s rapid militarization plans aimed at building “Fortress Europe”.

Following the Sejm's no-confidence vote, Mateusz Morawiecki's government has left office and the new cabinet along with Prime Minister Donald Tusk were sworn into office on Wednesday. US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, James O'Brien, expressed his hope that Poland would emerge as a leader in the European Union.

The new Polish government led by Donald Tusk “wants to be seen as even more pro-American than the previous one,” Polish politician Konrad Rekas told Sputnik.

The United Nations will continue working on Russian and Ukrainian foods and fertilizers being capable of supplies to the global market without restrictions, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at the meeting of the UN Security Council on Ukraine.

"We will also keep pushing for freedom and safety of navigation in the Black Sea and that badly needed Ukrainian and Russian food and fertilizers reached the global market without restrictions," Guterres said.

They just can’t take a joke. The former president Donald Trump made a sarcastic crack about encouraging Russia to attack NATO members that didn’t invest in their defense, and hysteria enveloped both Washington and Brussels. For some officials, the imbroglio appeared to signal the end of Western civilization.
