In coordination with US, UK to also gift multiple-launch rocket systems to Ukraine. Def Sec says UK will send M270 launchers, which can strike targets up to 80km away with precision guided rockets.

For everyone following Henry’s story, unfortunately he’s taken a turn for the worse.  His condition progressed and he’s developed dystonia: uncontrolled shaking/ stiffness. He was in the hospital for 6 weeks, but is now home and getting love from brother Theo.

Ukraine war now is a question of perspective. Long term situation doesn’t look good for Russia. Short term is not looking good for Ukraine in Donbas.

Massive attacks underway against the kurds in northern syria. No ceasefire. Total nonsenses there is. US military officials tell me they are ashamed, “sickened.” It’s cold now outside. What about the families, and kids, out of their homes? @OARichardEngel  #AmericanBetrayal 

The separatists are claiming Ukrainians are attacking and besieging them. I’ve walked up and down those trenches for the last several months. Saw no signs of ongoing or impending Ukrainian offensive. None.
