than they will have no choice just to negotiate with Russia and will save many lives
wanna stop the conflict?
give Ukraine what it needs to roll back Russia
then there will be no fake peace that Russia will turn around and break anytime it wants
Ukraine’s choice to make of course.
Earlier we start training Ukrainian pilots the better

Ukraine has to cede a buffer zone or face further destruction.
No, it doesn’t. Ukrainians know ceding anything now will only delay at best further aggression, never to stop it.
To believe otherwise is breathtakingly naive.

dont you think its about time to stop this conflict now and start to talk about peace instead of funding Kiev junta with money and useless easy-to-be-burned guns?
Strong no to that, bub. The only realistic path to end the conflict is to give Ukraine what it needs to drive out the aggressor, Russia.
What you’re looking for is for Ukraine to submit. Nice try. Hard pass from our Ukrainian friend I believe and rightly so. .

“There can be no justification for such barbaric actions, they will not go unanswered and their authors and perpetrators will inevitably be punished,”
As for the tanker, if it was transporting fuel for and to Russian forces, then it was certainly a legitimate target. During WWII the US Navy sunk thousands of tonnes of Axis merchant shipping, including, of course, tankers.

Three-quarters of Republicans said they agreed that the charges were "politically motivated," showing that Trump's claim that he is the victim of political persecution resonates with his base.

Lets get the facts straight both these two chaps, both are vile and egotists, caring about themselves rather than the common man.
To get the facts straight, as you say, isn’t to represent the two sides as morally equivalent in any way. That’s patently ridiculous. Russia is the aggressor and Ukraine is just defending itself. The war would end tomorrow if Russia left Ukraine. Period.

I’d hope Bragg has an strong case - especially able to clearly establish the falsification of business documents is related to the election rather than to save his marriage. The latter is quite arguable, I think, and that would make it a misdemeanor not a felony.

DeSantis, “I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I just, I can’t speak to that."
Trump "Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser and better known, when he's unfairly and illegally attacked by a woman, even classmates that are 'underage' (or possibly a man!),"
DR jr Pure weakness. Now we know why he was silent all weekend. He's totally owned by Karl Rove, Paul Ryan & his billionaire donors. 100% Controlled Opposition.

"For now, we are trying to figure out the reason: is it just ordinary bureaucracy or a betrayal,"
More of the ongoing rivalry between Russian military establishment and the Prigo’s PMC. He wants to be a power centre in the corrupt regime
Illustrates really well that Bakhmut is firstly about showing a “win” that Prigo can take credit for. A win paid for by Russian cannon fodder. And any failure is due to betrayal from “traitorous” elements

Hard to fathom how some folks really can’t (won’t) understand what pride is about. Purposely obtuse?
In the not too distant past being (not preferring) LGBT would likely mean living a life of closeted self-suppression, depression, risk of legal / criminal repression, moral opprobrium, and suicidal ideation (the way the previous poster would like it to remain?). We’ve come a long way.
“is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group.
*Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. “*

The Germans underestimated the resolve and fortitude of the Russian people then and they do so again today.
And Russia underestimated the resolve and fortitude of the Ukrainian people. Putin thought they’d roll in and take the country. Over a thousand smoldering Russian tanks later…

Gotta lol at these weak “has Ukraine won yet?” come backs.
It’s a promised Russian victory (you know that supposed conventional and nuclear superpower ) that’s been delayed. Putin ordered his forces to seize Ukraine and topple its government in a few days.
Now, a year later, what’s the situation? Ukraine (the not-superpower in this story) not only didn’t collapse but pushed Russia back. over a hundred thousand Russian soldiers have been eliminated. Russia’s become the number one supplier of (not that great) military equipment to Ukraine. Russian military incompetence and corruption has been brought to the fore. Russia’s hydrocarbon economy is circling down the drain toward unrecoverable ruin. Xi’s made Putie his b. And on and on.
That “special military operation” still “going to plan”?
