We wish Ben a quick recovery and call for utmost efforts to protect journalists who are providing an invaluable service through their coverage in Ukraine.”    ‘Reporting on by MSN’

Vladimir Putin is proving every day that he will continue to murder civilians and the Press. I still say, he is bluffing on the nuclear war threat. Even he knows a nuclear war with the United States and its allies would be glass ass for him. He would no longer have a powerful country to rule over. He is already terrified he stands a chance of being forced out. He has secluded himself away from everyone. It’s a coin toss whether his orders of launching a nuclear missile would be carried out.
