This is cool info but I think that photo is of Helen Kane rather than Esther Jones…

(If I got that wrong I sincerely apologize, I just can’t find any instances of that first photo online labeled anything other than Helen Kane and Esther Jones seems to be referred to as “Baby Esther and “Little Esther” in different articles interchangably. If I got the wrong person I apologize, I was just trying to root out more photos of her and stumbled on that)

Is Russia invading Ukraine? Ask Ukraine, and the answer is yes. Ask Russia, and the answer is no … ish. Ask the United States, and you’ll learn that Russia, since annexing Crimea from Ukraine in March, has been demonstrating a “pattern” of “escalation of aggression.” U.S. officials have avoided labeling Russia’s “incursions” an invasion, perhaps to dodge the diplomatic and military implications of doing so.

What we know is that there are currently more than 1,000 heavily armed Russian troops in southeastern Ukraine and 20,000 Russian soldiers massed on the border, according to NATO. We know that armored vehicles and military equipment have been rolling into Ukraine from the direction of Russia in the dark of night; that Russian paratroopers were recently apprehended by Ukrainian authorities; that a massive convoy of Russian trucks entered Ukrainian territory without Kiev’s consent earlier this month. If you believe the Kremlin and pro-Moscow Ukrainian separatists, the Russian troops in Ukraine are on vacation, the captured Russian paratroopers entered Ukraine “by accident,” the Russian government is not directing and arming the rebels battling the Ukrainian military, and the truck convoy was delivering humanitarian aid. Then again, Vladimir Putin once declared that the “little green men” occupying Crimea were local self-defense forces who had gone shopping for Russian military uniforms, only to later admit that they were—surprise!—Russian soldiers.

The reality is this: Russia and Ukraine are effectively at war, and have been for some time, though Moscow has recently decided to operate more openly..…

Boldface mine.
