In regards to Biden monitoring the Ukraine invasion, Trump said: “I don’t think he’s monitoring.

“I think he’s sleeping right now.”

Overall, Trump called the Ukraine invasion a “very terrible situation” and a situation that “should have never happened.”

He told Ingraham that the Russian leader didn’t invade Ukraine during his time as president for “a very good reason, and I’ll explain that to you someday.”

“It’s a very sad thing for the world, for the country. And it’s going to be very sad for a lot of people that are going to be needlessly killed,” he explained.

Trump blamed Biden and a “rigged election” for Russia’s aggressiveness, saying Putin “sees the weakness, and the incompetence, and the stupidity of this administration.”

The former president also slammed Biden for driving the US out of business, insisted “he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing and it’s an absolute disgrace.”

Referring to Russia and China, Trump said: “As a young man I heard the worst thing you can do is drive those two countries together.”

He slammed both the Obama and Biden administration for driving the two countries together.

‘Special military operation’ declared

Trump’s phone call comes as Russian Presiden Putin has declared a “special military operation” in Ukraine after months of growing tension between the two countries.

Explosions rocked cities across the country, and Russian ground forces are thought to have advanced past the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk.

Explosions in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv have been reported by major outlets including CNN, who shared video of popping noises during live coverage. Other videos were shared on social media of explosions in Kyiv.

Around 11pm UK time Wednesday, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Putin refused last-minute talks and said that an offensive against Ukraine had been approved.

Zelenskyy pleaded to the people of Russia that only they could stop the invasion in an emotional address. 

“You are being told that this is a plan to free the people of Ukraine,” he said while speaking in Russian. “But the Ukrainian people are free.”

He added that there were roughly 200,000 Russian troops gathered on the border.

“Your leadership has approved them to move forward onto the territory of another country,” said Zelenskyy.

“This step could become the start of a big war on the European continent.”

After Putin’s declaration, President Biden issued the following White House statement: “The prayers of the entire world are with the people of Ukraine tonight as they suffer an unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces.

“President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.”

Once the bombings began, a UN Security Council meeting was held with Ukrainian ambassador, Sergiy Kyslytsy, urged Russian counterpart, Vasily Nebenzia, to turn over his duties as chair of the council, Guardian’s Julian Borger explained in a tweet.

Nebenzya said his country is “not being aggressive against the Ukrainian people but against the junta that is in power in Kiev.”

Biden is now set to address the nation on Thursday afternoon to announce “further consequences” on Russia, a White House correspondent tweeted.

The White House stated: “Tomorrow in the early afternoon, President Biden will deliver remarks announcing the further consequences the United States and our Allies and partners will impose on Russia for its unprovoked and unjustified attack on Ukraine.”

At approximately 6.39am in Kyiv, Ukraine, the Ukrainian interior ministry reported that there have been hundreds of casualties across the country from the first of Russia’s missile strikes, according to CNN.

Devastating weapons

Putin may deploy some of the world’s most devastating weapons in his full-scale assault on Ukraine, experts have claimed.

Russia’s terrifying arsenal of thermobaric weapons launches a barrage of fuel-air explosive warheads so powerful they can “melt” an opposing army.

Sebastian Roblin, a military expert, writing for 19fortyfive.com, said: “A TOS-1 rocket barrage will wipe out everything within the 200-by-300m blast zone.”

Further from the blast zone, pressure can break bones, dislocate eyes, cause internal hemorrhaging, and rupture eardrums, bowels, and other internal organs.

They can also suck the oxygen out of lungs, causing them to collapse, suffocating their victims to death.
