Separately, Russian and U.S. diplomats met in Istanbul on Friday to discuss a number of technical issues in their vexed relationship, both sides confirmed, though the Ukraine war was not part of their talks.

The US knows Zelensky can't win.

They're working out a deal.

-12 ( +9 / -21 )

Neither side has any strategy for winning this conflict,but one country is being decimated too the point of no return

-18 ( +4 / -22 )

Neither side do not believe in a decapitation strike, Russian has the ability to do it ,but have not attempted it,this the US first option in war

-17 ( +5 / -22 )

The US knows Zelensky can't win.

false - the exact opposite actually.

If America thought Ukraine couldn’t win, they wouldn’t be supplying military equipment.

They're working out a deal.

False

Putin is probably begging for a way out, which won’t cost him his presidency or his life

Too,the US supplied equipment too it troops,if fail in Iraq and Afghanistan

That’ll require asylum somewhere neutral.

Not sure his presidency is safe at all… won’t be any happy supporters in Russia afterwards.

The word on the street is that Putin is working with the Americans to secure asylum, so he can escape Russia with his head.

Putin is working with the Americans to secure asylum,

he's a dead man walking.

he’ll be hunted down the same way the Nazis & the Munich terrorists were

The US value their dysfunctional relationship with Russia ,than Ukrainain, Ukrainain have no history of killing opponents like Putin

Seems like it.

The United States announced new military aid for Ukraine on Friday

nearly every Friday here comes another 100s of millions.

It’s like it’s on the weekly list to do on Friday before someone is allowed to go to weekend vacation and get Ice cream.

Moscow seeking hundreds of ballistic missiles and offering unprecedented military support in return.

Russia is offering Iran an unprecedented level of military and technical support

.

Considering the hammering Russian troops have received in Ukraine, what support could Moscow off That Iran would want ?

Putin needs all of the aircraft, tanks and other vehicles he has.

.

technical support

Iran: Hello, technical support. i need help with .......

TS: please hold....................................................................................................................

Azz,the Russian incompetent only prolong Ukrainain misery

-11 ( +1 / -12 )

It Putin want to end the war, destroy the Presidential Palace,the Parliament building and Kiev main airport,they can easily accomplished this anytime they want too and why do Ukrainain not destroy the Kremlin and Moscow airport and the Duma

-13 ( +1 / -14 )

"The question of trust arises," Putin said.

Ah, says the man who invaded Ukraine despite a treaty promising not to.

I understand Putin's worry over Ukraine joining NATO. Perhaps as a face saving measure, that could be indefinitely and publicly postponed - it's not clear Ukraine is prepared for it anyway. In the meantime, Ukraine could continue with well-defined reforms to prepare for a coming day when they will be prepared.

it seems that "heroi" have no chance to crush moskals in any case.

USA and west as sponsors of Kiev regime finally coming to their senses and staringt to understand that UA is black hole for money and for any kind of support.their cheating with Minsk agreements/check Angela Merkel comments dated some days ago/ when they just needed time to arm UA regime to teeth for attack against Russia did not worked at all.

situation on the ground is very different from "facts" published here.

russians are not in hurry,have enough of resources,guns,bullets,rockets,fuel,gas,food-you name it.no sanctions have broke russian economy,ruble rate and whole situation abt export of oil,gas etc have no fatal effect for Russia at all-opposite have happened as Russia is making more money on it than ever before.

as I wrote often here-never underestimate Russians,they have survived siege of Leningrad,attack on Moscow,Stalingrad,Kursk and finally won over Hitler.only idiots will repeat same mistakes again.

war cant be won by newspaper articles or one sided daily published propaganda.

war cant be won by applying of open censorship here and truth cat be killed but will prevail at the end.people are smart and will find relevant informations by themselves at other sources easy.than they will put 1 and 1 together and will have own opinion abt whole matter.

earlier wet and US will get it and will remove clown in Kiev out of business and will put new one in charge and will push for peace negotiation-better for UA,Russia and whole world.

west and americans are just facing another defeat,much more serious one that one in Iraq,Syria or most recently Afghanistan...if they want save their face for their plebs they will need to work on peace talk plan fast.

UA forces have no serious reason to fight against russians.

UA is most corrupted country in Europe/and it was for years/ so ordinary ukrainians have no reason to fight and die of interests of USA and UA related oligarkhs or interests of nationalist groups inside of UA like Azov etc.

Peace will prevail.

Iran & Russia. . . Definitely a couple of the worst places to live regarding human rights.

Is it any wonder that so many of their own citizens are trying desperately to escape?

This no space after a comma thing is getting quite common here…

Anyway, in more recent times the humiliation in Afghanistan may be worth taking into consideration.

Of course it was the Soviet Union, not just Russians, we are talking about here.

situation on the ground is very different from “facts” published here

Really? What are the facts and where can we get them?

Thanks in advance.

Are we sending money to any other countries that got invaded or just Ukraine? Hmmm….

Are we sending money to any other countries that got invaded or just Ukraine? Hmmm….

Actually to lots of countries, yes.

A really silly argument. Especially from Trump fans who looked the other way for four years while the Trump family banked millions off his presidency. You don't care about corruption.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Blacklabel - what other countries are you referring to?

8 ( +9 / -1 )

the left claim is we are obviously sending money to Ukraine because they got invaded and only because they got invaded. Obviously. That’s what we do!

so I asked what other countries that got invaded have we sent billions to. Other poster said “lots”.

so I’m waiting for a list of country names.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

Who else is currently being invaded by another country?

4 ( +8 / -4 )

so I asked what other countries that got invaded have we sent billions to. Other poster said “lots”.

Kenya, Yemen, Iraq, and dozens of other countries receive billions in aid. US foreign aid recipients are easy enough to look up.

Even during the Trump administration the US was sending funds to Ukraine, and there were 0 concerns there until Biden became the clear front runner.

This yet another another smear campaign no different than Benghazi or Hillary's emails, and that's a real shame because tens of thousands of Ukrainians are being killed, and millions more have been displaced.

That The dwarf midget is openly offering “assistance” (read: nuclear weapons) in exchange for some ballistic missiles reflects the degree of desperation present in his inner circle.

He has no probability of defeating the UA, in fact no path to avoiding defeat.

He cannot replenish his stocks of inaccurate unreliable missiles in sufficient numbers.

The UA AAA systems are getting increasingly effective.

So offer to help the Mullahs over the line to get the bomb in exchange for some of their crappy missiles systems.

that’s not the plan of a man secure in his position.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Yet he just got his arms dealer back nearly for free.

While Russian tv is laughing at all Americans as to why Biden chose useless Griner over Whelan.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Kenya, Yemen, Iraq, and dozens of other countries receive billions in aid. US foreign aid recipients are easy enough to look up.

Only because they were invaded? Free weapons?

Iraq? US did the invading.

Yet he just got his arms dealer back nearly for free.

You mean the arms dealer selling Russian/Soviet arms to sub-Saharan African countries? Good point! Lol

The guy who’s served 19 years of a 25 year sentence and who’ll never step outside mother Russia again?

Only because they were invaded? Free weapons?

My point still stands. The US gives billions to many countries. Your claim that the US helping Ukraine fend for itself is an indication of corruption is absurd, and unfounded.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

Even during the Trump administration the US was sending funds to Ukraine, 

Someone missed the entire false premise of the impeachment.

the confusion is understandable when the false charge was not sending something that was sent. Even you are saying Trump sent money now.

do we always have to pivot right back to Trump in every article?

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

There’s also Mimi-me’s empty threat to renounce Russia’s no first use doctrine (Really more of a “we won’t use nukes first unless we are getting our asses kicked” doctrine).

Because nothing says “strong man” like threatening to nuke your adversaries if they’re too successful at fighting a war you started.

It changes nothing other than to make clear the increasingly weak strategic position Russia finds itself in.

Trump was impeached for supposedly not giving money to Ukraine.

why is Biden giving money to Ukraine, I ask.

”shut up Trump gave money to them too!”

ummm……

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

Do we always have to pivot right back to Trump in every article?

The point flew completely over your head. Even the Trump administration, which you are a supporter of, gave money to Ukraine. You act as if assisting Ukraine is a sudden change in US foreign policy, because of corruption, but it's not a sudden change. The US, regardless of administration, has been giving aid to Ukraine for many years.

Frankly it's sad the conversation has devolve into this discourse rather than focusing on the real victims of this war- the Ukrainian people.

Pentagon is worried about his future activities so I will take their word over a rando poster supporting Biden’s poor trade.

He could have got whelan back but he went identity politics and got fleeced by Putin. Again.

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

Even the Trump administration, which you are a supporter of, gave money to Ukraine

Then why did he face impeachment for not giving them money anymore?
