Putin allies eye prolonged conflict in Ukraine
May 25, 2022 — SpaceWar.com reports: “Top allies of President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Moscow was ready for a prolonged conflict in Ukraine in order to achieve the Kremlin’s goals in the pro-Western country.

Then our deliverance as believers – Revelation 4:1 and our joy because of missing Armageddon. See the next two reports.)
