Canada to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine



Canada will send tanks to aid Ukraine’s fight against the invasion, following Russia’s wave of missiles at Ukraine

Eleven people died and 11 others were injured after 35 buildings were struck across several regions of the nation.

The worst damage to residential buildings was in the Kyiv region, but officials also reported strikes on two energy facilities in the Odesa region.

The explosion in Kyiv happened during a live broadcast.

Russia is responding to Ukraine’s new offer of military support from the U.K., U.S. and now Canada.

Saying the U.K.’s pledge to send Challenger 2 battle tanks, this shows “direct” Western involvement in the conflict.

The offensive was a continuation of Russia’s months-long tactic of targeting Ukraine’s infrastructure.

The freezing winter has seen power stations destroyed and millions plunged into darkness.

Ukraine is counting on a German delivery of the most effective battle tanks available.

Canada has jumped on board and will soon transfer four Leopard 2 tanks and send Canadian troops to Europe to help train the Ukrainian military.

Burrowing badgers wreak havoc on Dutch railway tracks



Authorities are needing to cancel services because of the severity of the damage

The Netherlands is experiencing a bad case of burrowing badgers.

The cute, fury critters are tunnelling below railway tracks and are wreaking havoc on train services across the country.

In fact, it’s so getting bad, authorities are being forced to cancel services.

Trains in the north and south are the worst affected, with some lines halted for at least a week.

The route between Den Bosch and Boxtel in the south was closed on Tuesday after the mammals dug under the tracks.

Officials are unsure how long the problem will continue as badgers are a protected species.
