Does Russia’s past actions coupled with its current aggression demonstrate why it’s important for the West to stick by Ukraine?

On July 17, 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down.The attack left all 238 passengers, including 80 children and 15 crew members, dead…Following a 15-month investigation, the Dutch Safety Board found a Russian-made Buk missile was to blame.

In 20-16, criminal investigators revealed the missile had been brought in from Russian territory and fired by Russian-backed separatists… And in 20-19 four men were charged with the murders of all 238 people on board.

Eight years on, Russia still refuses to accept responsibility.

Russian officials reject accusations of involvement… and Moscow says the investigation is both “biased and politically motivated”.

This of course comes as the war in Ukraine wages on and Russia’s battle for control of the eastern Donbas region remains as bloody as ever.

It’s a region which has witnessed so much tragedy and so much devastation – but what does its future hold? And does Russia’s past actions coupled with its current aggression just further demonstrate why it’s so important for the West to stick by Ukraine?

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
