The 'Ukrainian Alamo': Invasion Stymied, Putin Moves the Goalposts; Now Seeks to Grab Eastern Ukraine

Randy Mancini 4 Mar 28

"It's fighting to the last defender, and pinning down multiple Russian battalions and doing it very heroically, but ultimately it looks as if it's going to have to collapse and it's going to be taken."

Meanwhile, in the western city of Lviv, Russia released new video of missile strikes targeting fuel depots and defense infrastructure.

Addressing his nation, Ukrainian President Zelenskyy accused the West of lacking the courage to take on Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling on NATO to give his country more tanks and planes.

In Warsaw, Poland, Joe Biden delivered a speech in which he issued Vladimir Putin a blunt warning.

"Don't even think about moving on one single inch of NATO territory. We have sacred obligation," Biden said. "We have a sacred obligation under Article V to defend each and every inch of NATO territory with the full force of our collective power." 

Then Biden seemed to call for an end to Putin's rule.

"For God's sake, this man cannot stay in power," Biden said.

Secretary of State Blinken quickly walked back Biden's words saying, "We do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia or anywhere else for that matter."

A Russian official told Reuters, "That's not for Biden to decide. The president of Russia is elected by Russians."

In a new interview with independent Russian journalists, President Zelenskyy said Ukraine might be willing to become a neutral nation and agree to not join NATO in exchange for peace.  

The interview was not shown inside Russia.
