I may be wrong and probably am, however seems to me the aid is not getting to the Ukrainians fast enough. Correct me if I am wrong.

Either join the fight or leave alone and be a watcher

"" The United States is considering additional sanctions, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.""

I did know that there were so many sanctions available!! HOW MUCH MORE LEFT?? and what are the other options?

The people of Ukraine are paying the ultimate price protecting the west and Europe while the west and the free world is imposing sanctions, providing arms, then kicking back and watching.

It all depends how deeply the west commits to Uklaine. Economic sanctions only cannot save Uklaine from Russian invasions. The west and U.S. are not very serious to save Uklaine, it seems. Russia will get Uklaine eventually.

On April 6thread earlier that Europe had bought 35 Billion euros worth of Russian Oil since the war started, while having offered 1 Billion to Ukraine in aid.

Theres a lot more that can be done and that figure has probably doubled since then. But it goes to show that people don’t support what doesn’t support their wallet.

The US is the only country that can counter Russian, Ukraine and Russia are both dysfunctional countries,I hope Ukraine kill as many Russian soldiers as willing to die for Putin,you are not gonna beat an enemy stuck in a trench,lots of Ukrainian are hellbent on supporting Russian against their own country interests Google SBU FSB Traitors

Mr. Bill Burns the director of the CIA stated over the weekend that the Russians are "" contemplating the possible use of Tactical Nuclear Weapon"" according to SKY news analyst Mr. Michael Clarke. but the Russian Foreign minister denied that.

but the Russian Foreign minister denied that.

So it's still quite likely.

Correct me if I am wrong.

US military hardware is arriving typically in a week or less after the aid is authorized. Can't say about other nation's efforts.

US is not the world ATM machine, American pay their taxes,they do not expect Russian to drop bombs on them

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

No one wins a global war.

Stay out of this one.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

Japan should stay out of this like 70% of the worlds population and concentrate on Covid19 recovery, supply chain mayhem and cost of living for ordinary Japanese.

-6 ( +9 / -15 )

This part of the Ukraine conflict could really easily escalate into a world war as Donbass had announced prior to the Russian invasion that they want to be part of Russia.

Putin clearly warned other nations to stop supplying Ukraine with weapons.

In this particular situation i think other nations should stay out of the conflict.

I hope they can come to a diplomatic agreement and peace treaty.

Yrral -

Are you aware of the fact that a vast number of USA citizens do not pay taxes or have health care ?

Unlike it is in Japan.

Bombings is something the USA military has done alot of and involving itself in other countries conflicts has proven to be a waste of money and lives.

Kyo,I hope Russian are brought too their knees and beg for mercy,they have not shown others

You are confused. Donbass wants to be independent. Crimea wants to be part of Russia, and now is.

No.

I may be wrong and probably am, however seems to me the aid is not getting to the Ukrainians fast enough. Correct me if I am wrong.

The fact that most of the surface area of the Ukrainian landmass is now covered in a fine patina of the charred remains of Russian military equipment would seem to strongly suggest that the military aid to Ukraine is arriving in reasonably good time.

Michael Machida...

The aid is arriving but much of it is destroyed before it gets deployed... The S300 anti aircraft batteries from Slovakia.... Boom, gone!

The missile strikes in Lviv on Sunday.... More expensive NATO hardware going up in smoke. Good business for the arms manufacturers.

Just prior to the Russian invasion what did the majority of the Donbass region announce ?

No iam not confused.

I hope your referring to the Russian military and its leaders and not the Russian people.

I hope a peaceful resolve is achieved and the senseless fighting and destruction ends.

I hope you realize to be angry and hateful without knowing the whole story is also dysfunctional.

Most of Ukraines surface area and landmass isn't covered in a fine patina of charred remains of Russian military equipment.

Poetically your comment sound great but however in reality its quite simply not true.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told his counterparts during a video call that the Japanese government will increase the amount of its loans to be extended to Kyiv to $300 million from $100 million, saying that propping up Ukraine's economy is an "urgent task."

I was excited to hear this then saw Japan's contributions. Woohoo. $300M. Yeah. Considering their economy's size and importance to the "free" world....pretty paltry. Almost embarrassing.

The aid is arriving but much of it is destroyed before it gets deployed... The S300 anti aircraft batteries from Slovakia.... Boom, gone!

Along with 25 Slovakian technicians training an unknown number of Ukranians on how to use them.

Though none as high ranking as Gruppenführer of the Azov Battalion, U.S. Army Major General Roger L. Cloutier

There is absolutely no doubt at all that if the people of Donbass were allowed to participate in a free and fair referendum of it's continued existence in Ukraine, independence or Russian annexation, the first of those choices would have gained the fewest votes by a very wide margin. The latter would have been the most likely to win but independence would have had significant support.

Russians are "" contemplating the possible use of Tactical Nuclear Weapon

so use a nuke, destroy whatever is left of the infrastructure make the surround areas radioactive,

Putin is a genocidal maniac but hes not stupid

Poetically your comment sound great but however in reality its quite simply not true.

True, the Ukrainians have been able to keep the Russians from stepping foot in about 80% of the country, so the charred remnants of Russian military vehicles are only to be found in the border regions and not the whole country. I was taking a bit of poetic license in my description there.

So many pro Russian freaks wanting the west to stand back and allow Russia to rape and pillage Ukraine. Turn Ukraine into a puppet regime that does Moscow's bidding.

So sorry the world continues to band together to hinder Russia's party of destruction by up arming Ukraine forces.

Asia, Oceania, Europe, the Americas, all doing things to reduce Russian abilities to kill people as easily as Russia would like. Sending money, loand, humanitarian aid and military equipment to support Ukraine independence.

How sad for Russia and it's lackeys. Get used to it, as it will not stop, not until Russia is out of all of Ukraine.

*loand = loans

In Japan, any mention of a US journalist disappeared in Ukraine after criticizing the Zelensky regime is censored while @Mark for example openly calls for nuclear war in order to save the Azov Battalion in Mariupol but isn't censored. The we have our favorite German @klausdorth who accuses people of "suffering" from a Nazi phobia. Not censored. We have @starbucks equating the capture of an American general with the slaughter of innocent women and children. Not censored. Finally we have @Fighto who calls the Azov Battalion "freedom fighters". Not censored.

In Austria anyone even sharing the Russian side of the story is liable to criminal prosecution.

In Nazi Germany the regime announces it's 'investigating' any citizens expressing pro-Russian views.

In totalitarian USA 3 scions of corporate media, NY Times, Bloomberg and Washington Post all call for the curtailing of bourgeois democracy on the same day.

Like it or not, I suspect most posters here do and the censors certainly do, open fascism is up on us

@raving

I think if you check my history you won't find the comment you misrepresented as it was censored.

how come my refutation of the Russian disinformation posted by "Rob" and "Ingvar" gets deleted, but the disinfo itself is allowed to stand? Not a good look.

WTF are talking about? I don't post false information ever but most of my messages are censored.
