SEE IT: Ukraine Obliterates Russian Warship as Invasion Drags On

Published

Vladimir Putin, once of the scourge of the east, is now one of the most embarrassed leaders in the world.  His invasion of Ukraine was originally slated to take only a few days, perhaps 3 at most, but has now dragged on for more than a month as soldiers continues to abandon the front lines in droves.

Worse still for the Moscow madman:  Some of Russia’s most highly-prized military equipment is being obliterated by the far smaller Ukrainian army.

Ukraine’s Navy claimed to have “destroyed” a Russian vessel on Thursday morning in the port of Berdyansk on the Black Sea southwest of Mariupol.

“A large paratroop ship ‘Orsk’ of the black sea fleet of occupiers was destroyed in the occupied Russian port Berdyansk,” the country’s Navy announced on Facebook. “Glory to Ukraine!”

“The occupiers are burning well,” the Armed Forces of Ukraine wrote on Twitter.

Ukraine was not above gloating on social media.

Just how poorly is Russia doing in Ukraine?  The numbers are staggering:

On Thursday morning, the Armed Forces of Ukraine claimed that Russia’s total combat losses from Feb. 24 to March 23 amounted to about 15,800 people, 530 tanks, 1,597 armored combat vehicles, 280 artillery systems, and 47 anti-aircraft weapons.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
