Since MAGAs aren't supporting Ukraine very well, the country has to dig deep to end terrorism.

We almost lost the war in Ukraine — said Khodorkovsky

"We" in this case is about Ukraine

"In this scenario, Ukraine will lose Kharkiv by the end of the year. By the middle of next year, Odessa. The ratio of forces will be 10-15 to one by the end of 2025. By the middle of 2026, Ukraine will continue only a guerrilla war, and Lviv will stay Ukrainian if NATO troops represented by Poland enter there. And this is all the best scenario if the Ukrainian Armed Forces heroically resist, despite the hopelessness of the situation," he told the German newspaper Bild

On the day the law on tightening mobilization came into force, the first large and well-coordinated protest took place in Ukraine.

180 km from Odessa on the Odessa-Kiev highway, truck drivers blocked the highway. A lot of cars and drivers gathered, a protest against forced mobilization began

Them that is what they have to do. I wish them all the best, we have our own challenges and turmoils we need to deal with.

Ukraine has the spirit to fight, but they can’t do it without weapons.

I remember all the western media reports about the 10's of Russians who fled to avoid the war but this is the first time anyone has reported on the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian men who have fled because they value their lives more than their own government does.

There will be a negotiated peace, all wars end with a written agreement. The longer this war continues without a negotiated peace between Russia and Ukraine, the more men who will die and the worse negotiating position Ukraine backs itself into.

Demoralized due to lack of support from the West in terms of military aid . . . Yeah, who wants to hunt a lion with their bare hands?

Save your youngsters and country, start Talking.

Enough killing, at some point both side will reach that point when the killing has to stop and talking is the only option.

The MSM tells us the spirit is there, but methinks not.

Telegram ch Anton Gura (Ukrainian journalist):

Who watched the release of ZE (lensky)?

In short

1) 120-130 F-16 aircraft of modern modifications.

2) To increase air defense fourfold (now, according to him, Ukraine is provided with air defense by only 25% of what is needed)

3) Allow the ZSU (APU) to hit any territories of Russia with Western weapons.

4) Prepare 150 thousand new mobilized!

What do you say?

Just two more years and you might get a Pyrrhic victory!!! How many casualties are Russian mothers signed up for?

They've been quite good at killing Russians so far.

Hunt a lion? Cant be right, the JT experts have assured us many times that drunken, demoralized Russkie convict rabble is only fighting with shovels since they ran out of missiles and museum piece tanks. On top of it the Russian economy is in smoking ruins due to the mighty sanctions. Lion? Thats crazy talk.

No need for that as Ukraine has been quite good at sending Russian ships on unscheduled undersea expeditions.

The negotiating position is actually much stronger today than in then the fantasy days of Istanbul withdrawal agreements.

Honor every threat.

Russia has more manpower and resources even though it is a corrupt and vile system of government, so it’s best not to underestimate them. They are a threat regardless of what you’ve been taught.

The streets of Ukrainian cities, especially large ones, have been deserted in recent days. Not only men, but also women with children prefer to stay at home. Men now prefer to gather in groups of 10-20 people to make it easier to fend off the staff of military offices. No amount of Western money and weapons will be able to correct the mood of the people. Ukrainians do not understand why they should die. Russians have never been their enemies. And now the Russians are not enemies. The enemies are the Kiev regime.

"Killing Russians"- it's the blatant essence of the statements of many local experts "on Ukraine".

“Russians gave never been their enemies.”

Tell that to the thousands of dead women and children who’ve been tortured, raped and killed at Russian hands.

Russians make mistakes and learn from them. It should be noted that you have not had any success in this field for a long time since then.

Is this an call to whom? Into the void? As long as there is an instigator and an investor in this conflict, nothing will end

Thus, your argument is that one sin justifies another sin? That’s not a very strong argument. BTW, at least the US admits grave mistakes were made and investigated them. Russia? Not a chance.

this is just a remark, so as not to get into discussions about false speculation. Russia is investigating all real crimes. But only real ones, not invented by Ukrainian inventors. It would have been time for Americans to investigate their mistakes long ago. Including telling the world about the children abducted from Vietnam as a result of the operation baby lift

This is un-winnable for Ukraine. Defeat is certain. Why is it being prolonged? Follow the money.

Yesterday, in a Ukrainian city of Kanev , Cherkasy province, there was a meeting of city counsil, talking about different topics and they invited a military representative of the kyiv regime..

After the meeting, the military commissar stood up, called more soldiers and give to the councilors recruiting citations for the kyiv regime's Army, recruiting them criminally and against their will..

This act of desperation and cruelty by the kyiv regime with its own people is a clear example of how the war is completely lost for them and the end for the decadent kyiv regime is getting closer every day..

It's a so lost and impossible to win for kyiv regime..

For the sake of their own people it is better that kyiv regime make capitulations with Russia before it is too late..

Yeah, and Russia is the instigator and China the investor, so it won't end until they are sufficiently bloodied.

Two large ships sunk in February. As long as the cowards stay in Novorossiysk, there will be no problems for either side.

At this point, you forgot to tell us about the destroyer Donald Cook
