Putin must be laughing his head off. And I can’t imagine what the Ukrainian ambassador must be thinking. Wars are fought with weapons and won with men, not words or paper cranes. I really want to know who’s idea that was. Give a soldier the choice between more artillery or a billion cranes….. they’ll take the artillery every single time.

I'm going to pay now, what a strong diplomatic gesture. They either give cranes as a gift or donate money for weapons to Ukraine. we must already decide how to behave either for peace or for war

Japan is doing the moral thing supporting Ukraine. Although it's in their own best interests, as Russia will not stop with Ukraine, and Japan is right next door.

People forget how America washes their hands of puppets when it suits them. When they aren't of any use, they cut them loose like a muppet.

Amazing how many sarcastic, passive-aggrressive comments I see here which was actually what i expected since the people whose job to saw discard are always the first to leave their poisonous splurs under very touching sentimental things.

Not every help shoud be weapons, those things are another kind of support, Ukrainian soldiers put children's paintings in the dugouts or in their ammunition, or clothes to remember what they are fighting for - and that is for light, for kindness for ideals and justice not like those russians who came to a foreign land instead of making prosperous their own.

Paper cranes look amazing if I had such thing at my place id always look at it with warmth and excitement.
