Russia Vows To Topple Ukraine’s Government

By Stefan J. Bos, Chief International Correspondent a Worthy News

KYIV/MOSCOW/BUDAPEST (Worthy News) – Undeterred by international sanctions and condemnation, Russia sought Friday to topple Ukraine’s democratically elected government. The announcement came as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the world had abandoned Ukraine as the nation faced a full-scale Russian invasion.

A woman watched in horror as Russian armored vehicles entered Kyiv on Friday. Shots reverberated throughout the Ukrainian capital, according to footage monitored by Worthy News.

And as air-raid alarms sounded, people tried to hide from Russian airstrikes in underground railway stations and other areas.

After taking a key airport, Moscow said it was determined to overthrow Ukraine’s legitimate government.

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said it was steered by what he called “neo-Nazis” and the West.

The United States and the European Union have announced sanctions. They range from freezing assets of Russian President Vladimir Putin and allies to even halting a critical Russian natural gas pipeline to Europe.


Additionally, the Council of Europe suspended Russia’s membership as the Russian invasion was ongoing. Separately organizers announced that the 2022 Champions League final would be played in Paris as Russia was stripped of the match following the nation’s military assault on Ukraine.

The final of Europe’s most prestigious soccer club competition was to be played in the Russian city of St Petersburg on May 28.

It was another symbolic move that did not appear to impress Moscow with the world, including the NATO military alliance, watching on the sidelines as Ukraine was overrun by as many as 200,000 Russian troops backed by air power and other heavy military technologies.

Unshaven and emotional, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the world had abandoned his nation. “This morning, we are defending our state alone as we did yesterday,” he explained.

“Yet, the world’s most powerful forces are watching from afar. Did yesterday’s sanctions convince Russia? We hear in our sky and see on our earth that this is not enough,” the president stressed in a video message


His sentiments are shared across the border in Hungary. Thousands of Hungarians protested near the Russian embassy in Budapest against the invasion.

A protestor said Hungary still remembers how Russian forces crushed its 1956 Revolution against Soviet domination. “As a nation that was affected by very similar things, it is almost our moral duty to show support [for Ukraine] in our own ways as much as we can, really. And I hate seeing people having to flee their country, having to flee their homes, getting killed, getting bombed. It is horrifying, so this is the least I can do,” she added about the protest.

Hundreds of people are believed to have died on both sides.

But there were no signs yet Friday that Europe’s most significant armed conflict since World War Two would end soon.

Hungary and other nearby nations are expecting thousands of refugees.
