1 – Russian troops in Ukraine have been issued GAS MASKS: Chemical warfare equipment is seized from captured troops amid warnings from the West that Putin WILL launch a gas attack
The Daily Mail reports: Ukrainian forces have seized gas marks from Russian troops following warnings from the West that Vladimir Putin could use chemical weapons in his barbaric invasion.
The Ministry of Defence shared images of the captured equipment, which also included World War II era helmets and an ushanka hat, showing the dilapidated state of Putin’s run-down military.
The ministry said on Twitter: ‘The second army of the world is a sham. Equipment of “liberators”. They want us to live like that? stoprussia.’
Western and Ukrainian leaders have issued dire warnings that Putin is preparing to use chemical weapons, and the masks issued to Russian troops suggest an attack is likely.
Volodymyr Zelensky said yesterday the threat of Russian forces deploying chemical weapons is ‘very real’ as the invasion enters its third week.
DML: This is going to get worse. Putin needs to be stopped.
2 – ‘Red-Handed’: How Microsoft Promised to Outsource American Jobs to China
Breitbart reports: Less than two decades ago, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates explicitly promised to begin outsourcing the tech conglomerate’s workforce from the United States to China, Peter Schweizer’s new book Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win details.
While Gates, then-chairman of Microsoft’s board of directors, appeased the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) censorship of the internet, he went a step further — promising the regime that Microsoft would outsource American jobs to China, Schweizer writes.
Gates’ Chinese outsourcing scheme was only the start of a lucrative future for Microsoft that would eventually work closely with the CCP and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
