The Russian military, once a much-feared actor on the world’s stage, has been reduced in stature over the course of a weekend as Ukrainian military and civilian fighters continues to mop the floor with the Kremlin’s cronies.

With many having predicted that Russia would be able to take the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv in 48 hours or less, this 5th day of the invasion has yet to see any major advances by Moscow’s military.

Now, as Putin’s buffoonery becomes the laughingstock of the entire world, (and with the rest of the globe sending hellacious reinforcements to Ukraine), the Kremlin is calling in the cavalry…and in a rather nefarious way.

A referendum in Belarus on Sunday approved a new constitution ditching the country’s non-nuclear status at a time when the former Soviet republic has become a launch pad for Russian troops invading Ukraine, Russian news agencies said.

The agencies cited the Belarus central elections commission as saying 65.2% of those who took part voted in favor. The result came as little surprise, given the tightly controlled rule of President Alexander Lukashenko.
