US: No flyover zone and ignore Russian oil

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi have called for a ban on Russian oil imports from the no-fly zone. The Wall Street Journal reports that Russia is recruiting Syrian fighters to fight in Ukraine.

“According to US Secretary of State Anthony Plinken, the no-fly zone should not be crossed,” said US Postman John Postma. “According to him, it would be too bad for US planes to shoot down Russian planes to make this zone possible.” That’s why Polish Mix goes to Ukraine, Blingen comes forward to fill the polish products. Ukrainian pilots trained in the mix, Postma explains.

Russia appoints Syrians to war in Ukraine

‘The news in The Wall Street Journal was very significant. The newspaper writes that Russia is recruiting Syrians for the war against Ukraine. Postma explains that the war in Ukraine is targeting urban areas such as Kiev. The Russian logic behind this is that Syrian militants have the experience of fighting in the big cities because of the ten-year-old civil war.

The newspaper writes that Russia is trying to lure Syrians to Ukraine through the Syrian news site. The news site reports that every Syrian fighter gets 200 to 300 to fight in Ukraine. According to Postma, the Syrians have already trained in Russia and may soon train in Ukraine as well.
