Japan, Ukraine to hold reconstruction conference next year in Tokyo

Disaster Capitalism 101.

Hopefully some good can come out of it like post WW2 reconstruction and not like Iraq /Afghanistan etc.

I don't want to pay japanese tax for help Ukraina or military drill,Ukraina president was a commedian, so Can't trust a man who made jokes always!

Wishful thinking and the amount of shelling Russian has done has made the soil toxic and uninhabitable for ages with mines and clustered bomb laying around.

Cry me a river Zelenskyy you moron

Fighting Russia is perhaps not going anywhere.

Make peace

People of this mindset always roll over and give in to bullies.

The Ukrainians - on the other hand - will defend their land from the fascist invaders.

Good for Japan for continuing to support Ukraine - especially in rebuilding the incredible damage inflicted by the fascist Russians.

En plus, It must be taken into account that a third of fertile Ukrainian land has already been bought up by American owners. Why do you think they need a grain deal? It is the American owners of the land who need to export their harvest (the quality of the grain, of course, is questionable) and get their money. And Ukrainians need to transport weapons here and there. Ukrainian soil is the best in the world! the most fertile.

PS. Let's think that I didn't notice "shelling Russian has done". I have a lot to tell you about the shelling.

MHI and all the other usual recipients of Japanese ODA must be salivating.

Destroy countries so they can be forced to borrow money at onerous rates. Worse yet, invade countries and force them to pay war reparations.

Make peace

Peace is easy, poo tin can make peace in less than a day, just withdraw his rapist rabble of an army and stop the illegal genocidal attack on Ukraine, pay for th damage they have caused and submit himself to The Hague.

That bullet train from Kyiv to Odesa is not going to pay for itself.

Start peace negotiations now.

The best presidents in American history were in the entertainment industry before changing Americans' lives forever.

I hope they are. Because MHI and others are the best in the business. When MHI starts building hospitals and road and Bridges in Ukraine. The people in Ukraine will be the biggest winners.

History clearly teach us that it is impossible to defeat Russia.

Napoleon with his grand army tried in 1812 so as Adolf Hitler with his efficient mighty Wermacht and althogh they had a better logistic,quality and better overal military training compared to the Russian Empire/Soviet Union in the grand scale strategic aspect they lost.

The Ukrainian president is a muppet of NATO and all his waffeling lead him to nothing.

Russia and Ukraine should deal with an armistice leaving the eastern part of Ukraine to the Russian Federation and allow Ukraine the will to enter in the European Union.

That much already?

Not bad.

How much more can be realistically acquired?

Maybe not much, is the war winding down?

Maybe that's why they are now talking reconstruction

Russia will do all the reconstruction in the south and east. It would be unfair to expect Ukraine or anyone else to pay for land that is now Russian!

Russia ran quite effectively in WW1 and Afghanistan.

Russia and Ukraine should deal with an armistice leaving the eastern part of Ukraine to the Russian Federation and allow Ukraine the will to enter in the European Union.

Not just the EU but NATO. Any sort of ceasefire will have to acknowledge the huge amount of NATO weaponry that will remain in Ukraine.

History clearly teach us that it is impossible to defeat Russia.

History teaches us that Russia has been defeated multiple times, some easier than others:

Russo-Japanese War

World War 1

Crimean War

Afghan War

War of the Third Coalition

War of the Fourth Coalition

First Chechen War

Livonian War

Smolensk War

Russo-Ottoman War

Khivan War

Latvian War of Independence

Polish-Soviet War

So, there has to be a peace broker and that will be Japan?

I did not think so

Seems like putting the cart before the horse - the conflict will have to end for any planning for reconstruction.

And it has no end it sight - RF will not make peace with Zelensky and the level of trust with his western backers is zero; and it will not stop the SMO for an even bigger threat to emerge later which is why Moscow will see it through and conclude this conflict on terms favorable to them.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

There seems to be a misguided notion taking shape in certain quarters, now that Kyiv is inevitably losing, that there will be a ceasefire or frozen conflict.

The counter offensive was a gamble; the premise to force Moscow to negotiate on terms favorable to the West. The idea is forming that they can just hit pause while they reconstruct (and rearm).

The RF will not allow whatever is left of Ukraine to join NATO; complete de-militarization and neutralization will be prerequisites for any sort of settlement - which will be largely dictated by Moscow and will inevitably involve territorial concessions and recognition. There will be no pause for rearming (which is exactly what the West used the Minsk Agreements as cover for).

The conference is scheduled for the height of winter and a massive aerial bombardment campaign is in the pipeline. Talk of even planning for reconstruction is premature; talk of peace more so unless you actually want it long-term.

Russia has still shown no ability to take a major city and they are hurting as well from multiple vietnams worth of casualties. Also Javelins are training are not arming. If the West had actually armed Ukraine, Putin would be a stain on the pavement somewhere by now.
