The Hudson County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution showing solidarity with Ukraine as they continue to be fight for their lives against Russia.

” … The Ukrainian people have shown that they will not bow to tyrants like Vladimir Putin and have instead chosen to fight to defend their freedom and independence,” the resolution says.
“… We honor those who fight for freedom, support those who have been forced from their homes, and stand with President Zelenskyy in supporting a free and independent Ukraine.”
The measure, which also applauds the sanctions against Russia issued by President Joe Biden (D), was introduced by all nine commissioners at yesterday’s meeting.
The local legislation appears to be part of an ongoing trend in Hudson County, with the North Bergen Board of Commissioners and Hoboken City Council approving similar resolutions at their respective meetings.
In the Mile Square City, they called for action from New Jersey’s federal representatives to help provide “immediate additional defensive support” to Ukraine, as well as for state officials to provide fleeing Ukrainians safe refuge here in New Jersey.
A Ukraine military base close to Polish border that was a conduit for Western military aid was shelled, killing about 35 and wounding about 140. Kiev’s food supply will run out in two weeks. We must not, and we will not let them starve. Putin would be very wise to not interfere in our resupplying of food for these innocent, peace loving Ukrainians. That could be the beginnings of constructive dialogues that could lead to an end in this bloody and illegal war. Very recently, a Ukrainian family was shot while trying to leave a checkpoint. The Russian soldiers thought this fearful family were Nazis. Why? Because their leader Putin filled their head with lies. His play here, is an old Bolshevik ploy. A Ukrainian Nazi party won 2 percent of the vote in a recent Ukrainian election and ZERO seats in Parliament. So, knowing that Russians are still aware of the horrific killing the nazis unleashed on Russia in operation Barbarossa in June of 1941, Putin, like the Bolsheviks before him, made the totally impotent paper tiger that is the Ukrainian Nazi party into something that it is not now, nor ever will be, all to create a false flag operation in Ukraine to try and justify his invasion
If Putin does not stop this aggression, We Will.
At the time The USSR’s last President, Mikhail Gorbachev presided over its break up, Ukraine, as one of its Republics, had the world’s third largest arsenal of nuclear weapons. In order to rid Ukraine of its substantial arsenal of nuclear weapons, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America signed the 1994 Budapest Memorandum. Six articles were agreed to:
1. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accord with the principles of the CSCE Final Act, to respect the independence and sovereignty and existing borders of Ukraine.
2. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America reaffirm their OBLIGATION to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and that none of their weapons will ever be used.
Russia has broken both its commitment and its obligations of both articles that it is a signatory of. Article six states that a meeting of these Countries must be called for and held if there is a question of violation to this agreement.
Indeed there is no question that Russia has violated this agreement. We MUST invoke article 6 of this Memorandum and call for a meeting of these three signatories.
