Ukraine needs the Anti Ship rockets and modern torpedoes to sink the entire Russian Black Sea Fleet once and for all – this will decide the war @IAPonomarenko
It started with the Black Sea Fleet and with the end of the Russian Black Sea Fleet this war will end. https://t.co/D3nPK9xvBO

Do the American people just not know we’re at war with Russia?
Or do they not care?
I keep saying that it doesn’t make sense to collapse the economy in the middle of a war, but I guess on the other side of that, an economic collapse is a distraction for the masses of people who might otherwise complain that you’re starting World War 3 to defend gay child rimjobs in some former-Soviet shithole no one can find on a map.
A top Ukrainian adviser has claimed that the United States is drawing up plans to sink Russian warships and ‘destroy’ its Black Sea Fleet, following reports that Washington is seeking to provide advanced anti-ship missiles to the Ukrainian military. The Pentagon has denied the allegations.
Ukrainian Internal Affairs Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko made the statement on social media on Thursday, saying that discussions are now underway in relation to how the US could help to break a Russian blockade of Black Sea ports.
“The US is preparing a plan for the destruction of the Black Sea Fleet,” he wrote. “The effective work of the Ukrainians on [Russian] warships convinced [the US] to prepare a plan to unblock the ports. Deliveries of powerful anti-ship weapons (Harpoon and Naval Strike Missile with a range of 250-300km) are being discussed.”
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby denied the Kiev official’s claims, stating during a Friday press briefing “I can tell you definitively that that’s not true.”
Gerashchenko had cited a recent Reuters report stating that the Biden administration was “working to put advanced anti-ship missiles in the hands of Ukrainian fighters to help defeat Russia’s naval blockade,” referring to the Harpoon and Naval Strike missiles by name.
The report noted some obstacles in sending such weapons to Kiev, however, including the “limited availability of platforms to launch Harpoons from shore,” given that it is largely a sea-based missile. Unnamed US officials said the White House is looking for a solution, including “pulling a launcher off of a US ship.”
It probably is true. It certainly sounds true.
Pentagon officials were claiming credit for sinking another Russian ship – in leaks to the New York Times that had to have been approved by someone.
Just so, I don’t think it’s really very likely that a top Ukrainian advisor would come out and say something like this without approval from the State Department/Pentagon, which is obviously running the Ukraine government.
If the US started sinking Russian ships, it seems pretty likely Russia would start launching missiles at Europe.
If you’re feeling down about the total collapse of civilization, this should cheer you up:

If that doesn’t cheer you up, then I guess maybe try fentanyl.
