There is only one solution. The total defeat of Putin's Russia and the formation of a democratic Russian nation with fair elections and guaranteed human rights, rule of law and all the liberal concepts for a liberal state in place.
You mean like in the west ? Democracy and fair elections ? Rampant drug abuse. soaring crime, attacking other countries like Afghanistan,Iraq。Syria etc.Go look at Youtube videos on how the Russians live compared to the so called western democratic countries.

If yes let me give you a few facts.
Most people here are not interested in facts or true history. They just hate Russia and if you ask people why, you get-- Russians are evil, Putin was in the KGB. etc.
Which country has higher morals than the West, who is self sufficient for food, gas, fuel, minerals, wheat, fertilizer etc.
While the west and Europe are imploding within from their hate of Russia , Russian citizens live in comfort with no empty food shelves and have p;enty of gas and fuel to keep warm.

Ukraine should only be agreeing to negotiations if Russia agrees to return Crimea.
Otherwise, Ukraine is going to have to take it back by force, making Russia look even worse.
If you knew the history of Russia and Ukraine., you would kmow that Crimea belonged to Russia since the 1700's and was leased out to Ukraine in a good will gesture.
That all changed after Ukraine kept attacking the Donbass regions which resulted in the deaths of more than 14,000 citizens. The Russians in Crimea were also under threat and that is when Putin took it back peacefully.
Also, in past history, Ukraine was always a part of Russia. Who do you think built all the power stations and industrial areas in Ukraine ?
Zelensky has already said he won't negotiate unless Russia gets completely out of Ukraine and that Ukraine will fight till the Last Ukrainian. Well, looks like he is getting his wish with the help of the USA and Nato.
When the USA attacked Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, did you people complain or care for the destruction and deaths under false claims from the West ?

The initiative should be from the side that destroyed the relations.
Yes ! It was Ukraine who started it all by attacking the Russian speaking regions of Ukraine for the last 8 years with the loss of more than 14,000 civilian lives.
These people had been living in the Donbass regios for hundreds of years. If people learned some history, they would know that Ukraine always had been a part of Russia.

Why does the news here always come from the side of Ukraine ? Ukraine seems to have no idea of the trap awaiting them in Kherson.

saying Russia's actions in Ukraine are a direct attack on the concepts of national sovereignty and territorial integrity that many believe the treaty established.
The past treaty and agreements between Russia and Ukraine were immediately broken after the US led coup to oust the legaly sitting Ukraine presiden at the time.
This is when the attackson the Donbass regions by Ukraine started and lasted 8 years until Putin finally stepped in.
Why do the G7 countries support the most corrupt country in Europe ? Compared to the rest of the world, the G7 have no power. They are vastly outnumbered.

Ye, yes yes "Russia started it"
No, they did not. Ukraine forces were attacking the Donbass regions for the last 8 years after the USA coup in 2014 and with the loss of more than 14,000 citizen's lives.
As for the grain, only 30 percent was going to the poorer countries with the rest going to Europe. Russia stated that they will send half a million tons of their own grain to ther poorer countries for free.
Zelensky accused Russia some time ago that Russia was stealing their grain and exporting it which was proven to be a lie. He then says that Ukraine grain should be given to the poorer countries but most went to feed Europe.

The idea that Ukraine would use a dirty nuke on its own territory is farcical.
You mean like shelling their own Nuclear power plant and accusing Russia of bombing themselves in the power station ?

Last week, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida condemned Russia's annexation of parts of Ukraine and said Japan plans to impose more sanctions against Moscow.
Learn some history. The Russians have been living in the Donbass regions for generations. Much of the population in the Donbass is also Russian speaking Ukrainian.
Ukraine had been attacking the Donbass for the last 8 years with the loss of more than 14,000 peopl's lives. Putin has finally put a stop to it.

Those Russian people in the Donbass regions have been living there for hundreds of years. Ukraine in History has always been a part of Russia.
Who has been attacking them for the last 8 years with the loss of many lives ? Why do the Russian haters ignore this ?

This war is a war is being waged ,against NATO and the west. using Ukraine as canon fodder. NATO had already been training Ukraine soldiers and supplying weapons long before Russia went in to protect the Russian spealing areas in the Donbass,
Ukraine had been shelling these regions for 8 years with the loss of more than 14,000 civilian lives.
Those being called up are not used on the front lines but will be there to protect the Russian speaking areas whilst freeing up the experienced military to do their work elsewhere.
If you want to know the real truth and history of what is going on, look for Scott Ritter who is an ex UN weapons inspector.

Biden accused Putin of "shamelessly" violating the U.N. Charter -----
It was the United Nations that brokered the original Minsk agreement between Russia and the Ukraine which Ukraine violated straight after it was signed by shelling the Donbass Russian speaking regions for the next 8 years.
Previous to that, it was the UN who warned of the rising Nazism in Ukraine which was reported by major news at the time.

How long is everyone going to wear these masks, Going in to the 3rd year now for a so called virus with more than 99 percent recovery rate.
The only outbreak is the constant testing of a virus that has never been isolated. Even experts in the field of virus and infections around the worldall state that masks do not do anything.
New Zealand has ditched the masks and so have some other countries also. If anyone is infected with anything, it is just the normal Flu. After all, what happened to the Flu statistics that used to be reported ?
People are so indoctrinated that they still wear these masks out in open deserted streets at night or while driving their cars etc.

To all those Russian haters. Ukraine had been shelling the Donbass Russian speaking regions for the last 8 years with the loss of over 14,000 civilian lives, and you think the Russians are bad.
Apart from the broken agreements between Russia and Ukraine ( Minsk agreement for one ) which was brokered by France and Gernany, was the continuing threat of NATO breaking their agreements also.
Ukrain in history always was a part of Russia so of course there would be certain areas today with Russians still living in Ukraine. One of the main reasons Putin went in to war with Ukraine was because of the slaughter of it's own citizens by the Nazi militas and Ukraine military.
And before someone decides to delete me for being offensive/vulgar, it was the United Nations in 2012 who reported that there was a real threat of Nazism rising in the Ukraine

saying Russia should take the blame for its opposition.
Yeah, well it wasn't Russia who bombed the innocent people in Japan in world war II. Nuclear weapons are never going to disappear. Always blaming Russia. for everything.

These sanctions have been really good for the Russian economy.
Russia is mostly self sufficent. Plenty of wheat, Corn, buckwheat, sunflower oil, fertilizers, rare gases for production in semi coductors, major supplier of Titanium, plenty of gas, oil, vegetables, minerals in general, exporter of military hardware, Nuclear power plants etc.
Go look at the shops in Moscow and see the abundant food on display with all well dressed people walking around.
The populations of the friendly countries that Russia deals with far exceeds the populations of the gang of seven.

The UN Chief appears to be talking to the wrong person. It should be talking with Russia who is in control of the plant which they secured some months ago and have kept it running safely under Ukraine technisions.
It would be understandable for Russia to close the plant down if Zelensky keeps bombing it. Stories of Russia bombing themselves is quite ridiculous.

Look after your own citizens in Japan who are on low non steady employment with low wages etc.
Ukraine citizens are free to go and live in Kiev where life is working normally for everyone there. They don't have to evacuate to other countries.
Do you see Russia attacking Kiev ?
Russia's military actions is to free the Russian speaking citizens in the Donbass regions who have suffered constant shelling from Ukraine over the last 8 years with the loss of more than 14,000 civilian lives.
