Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to the Ukrainian minister of internal affairs, claimed on Thursday that 60 pilots and technicians had been killed and 100 people wounded in a series of explosions at a Russian Saki air base on the Black Sea Crimean Peninsula on Tuesday. Since Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, the air base has housed the Russian 43rd Independent Naval Assault Air Squadron.

Colin Kahl, the under secretary of defense for policy, said at a press briefing that the US had sent “a number” of the missiles without specifying how many the US has provided or when they were sent. Kahl did not explicitly say what type of anti-radiation missile was sent.

A defense official told CNN the type of missile sent was the AGM-88 High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM).

    Does anybody anywhere believe that Russia will cow to US aggression? Putin has been up front about the existential threat to Russia. Did somebody using Ukraine as proxy forget or never learn what the definition of exisential is? Am reminded of an old American slogan ~> Better of dead than red. Today, the that slogan should read ~> Better off dead than red, white and blue. We are getting way too close to the GREAT MISTAKE.
