Russia is in retreat. The hired thugs they have been using to advance their atrocious war have just been dealt a deadly blow.

Ukrainian forces have struck the headquarters of Russia’s Wagner mercenary group, says the governor-in-exile of Luhansk in eastern Ukraine.

Serhiy Haidai said a hotel where the group met in Kadiivka, Luhansk, had been hit with major losses.

Wagner are sponsored mercenaries who act in the Kremlin’s interests, according to Western experts. Their funding and orders come straight from Russia’s top officials.

The private military company, set up by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a former restaurateur and close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has repeatedly been accused of war crimes and human rights abuses.

It’s alarming how we’re no longer shocked by these types of revelations. Putin is working with a mercenary thug who’s been accused of the most atrocious crimes.

These types of revelations already fit into what we know of Putin’s character. He’s a thug and a bully whose crimes have him on a one-way express to hell.

Wagner mercenary units don’t only operate in Ukraine. They have previously been deployed in Crimea, Syria, Libya, Mali, and the Central African Republic.

In the Kadiivka strike, Mr. Haidai said Russia had suffered “significant losses” and he expected “at least 50%” of the surviving forces to die due to a lack of medical treatment.

While it’s hard to root for anyone in a war scenario (there are no true winners) it’s good to see Ukraine pushing back against the might of Putin.

The attack on the “Wagner HQ”, in the east, came amid further fighting in southern Ukraine. Russia continues to advance even amidst their rising death tolls.

On Saturday, the Ukrainian army reported that it had struck down 10 drones, with another five hitting energy facilities in the port city of Odesa. The results of these attacks left nearly 1.5 million people without power.

“The situation in the Odesa region is very difficult,” Ukrainian President Zelensky said in his nightly video address.

“Unfortunately the hits were critical, so it takes more than just time to restore electricity. It doesn’t take hours, but a few days.”

Key infrastructure was hit by Russia’s Iran-made drones, according to Ukrainian officials.

Yet, another piece of information that doesn’t surprise us; Iran and Russia working together. They make a cute couple.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is due to host an online meeting of G7 leaders today, where hopefully, the leaders will impose additional sanctions on Russia and Iran.

The proposed measures would target Iran due to its supply of drones to Russia.

And the ninth package of Russia sanctions (yes, ninth!) would place almost 200 more individuals on an EU sanctions list.

There’s a dichotomy that comes to the heart of American patriots when we see others suffer at the actions of others. We’d love to step in and help, but it’s also important to give the victim room to grow and fight for themselves.

And we have to learn the lessons from our own history. We can’t fund the enemies of our enemy because those enemies may one day become our enemy.

I had personal experience with that in the Iraq war when they used the equipment we gave them to fight Iran to fight us.

It’s a lesson Joe Biden has refused to learn. His recent pull-out of Afghanistan and abandonment of millions of dollars of military equipment to the Jihad is a key indicator of his failures as Commander-in-Chief.

Ukraine seems to be making some massive progress in their war against Russia. Taking out an entire regiment of hired thugs proves that.
