On Wednesday, Ukraine executed an airstrike on a Russian oil field in the Smolensk region, marking a significant escalation in the ongoing conflict.

This event coincided with the signing of a $60 billion aid package to Ukraine by Speaker Mike Johnson, Democrats, Republicans in Name Only (RINOs), and President Joe Biden.

The aid package, which has been the subject of extensive negotiations and debates, is intended to bolster Ukraine's military capabilities in its campaign against Russia.

In an unexpected turn of events, Ukraine proceeded to target a Russian oil field shortly after the aid package was signed into law. The move has garnered support from the Biden administration, Speaker Mike Johnson, RINOs, and Democrats, who view it as a necessary step in the ongoing conflict. However, critics argue that only former President Donald Trump can halt the escalating tensions and prevent a potential World War III.


According to Business Insider, Ukraine has initiated a new wave of long-range drone strikes on Russian oil depots this week, targeting the Kremlin's critical infrastructure. The drones, dispatched by Ukraine's security service, struck two oil depots owned by Rosneft in Russia's Smolensk region on Wednesday. Multiple outlets have reported this information, citing a Ukrainian intelligence source.


An insider from the Ukrainian defense sector disclosed to Agence France-Presse that the depots held approximately 26,000 cubic meters of fuel. Reports also indicate that metallurgical and pharmaceutical plants in Lipetsk, southwest Russia, have been attacked. This series of events underscores the escalating tensions in the region and the potential for further conflict.
