What's the point in fighting and killing each other when in the end both sides WILL end up shaking hands and Negotiating???

This war has only one outcome, NO SURRENDERING, but negotiating.

This war has only one outcome, NO SURRENDERING, but negotiating.

So, in other words, an UNCONDITIONAL ceasefire. Putin can achieve that tomorrow by stopping firing, particularly at targets far from the front line.

Article mentions "restoration of electricity and energy infrastructure".

Moscow previously had focused on the substations and localized transmission lines to disrupt the energy grid.

Now they have shifted up a gear and are prosecuting the actual power stations and putting them out of action. The last month has seen powerplants all across the country hit and either destroyed or put out of commission for a significant amount of time, likely years. Credible reports of a mass exodus of people from Kharkiv, which had its power knocked out.

Gas storage sites and the pipelines that transport gas have also come under attack, including the biggest underground storage in the country (and Europe).

$104 million sounds like a drop in a bucket that grows in size.

Japan should help Ukraine all it can. It has been callously invaded by a war-mongering nation, and needs support from countries that value freedom and democracy.

All in contravention of the Geneva Convention, which prohibits attacks on civilian infrastructure. Russia's constant attacks on non-military targets and citizens are nothing but war crimes.

Anything else you'd like to file with the ICC?

Japan helps Ukraine now, or has to fight Russia later. It's an easy decision to help Ukraine. Russia is the enemy.

The good news is that if Russia collapses after they fail in their invasion of Ukraine, the Japanese will have a good opportunity to scoop the Kurils back.

Suspect the ramped-up energy infrastructure strikes were provoked by the widely publicized and reported Ukrainian attacks on oil infrastructure, amongst other things.

The main photo is very interesting with that gesture even included in the description. The photo was taken while Alexander Stubb, the new president of Finland was in Kyiv on a 'working visit', and they signed a 10-year "security agreement", which is more of the usual and doesn't amount to a hill of beans in the broader scheme of things. No military gear they don't have to give them and more of a PR photo op.

Interestingly enough, they talked about rebuilding Ukraine's energy sector, assessing environmental damage and medical treatment of Ukrainian military personnel - all growing industries. Kishida should give them a call.

Yes, Russia has provoked strikes on Russian infrastructure through their attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure. That is correct.

Russia is a terrorist country.

Kishida is as dumb as all the other G7 leaders and all the collective West leaders in the EU, oh yeah, let's not forget Castro Trudeau. Russia and Putin have won ladies and gentlemen. Biden doesn't even know where he is. How is Kishida going to affect the outcome? He's not going to. Period.
