    As good a place as any for all you Ukraine Russia experts who really need to bone up on the the subject. Take 30 mins of your precious time to watch. If after watching you still believe the bullshit about the Ukraine being "part of Russia", then there is no hope for you.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Great contribution and an education on the history of Ukraine.

    So much to absorb.

    Zelensky should have avoided the war that is devastating Ukraine

    A month into an invasion of Ukraine that could have been avoided, that nation’s president Volodymyr Zelensky now is willing to concede to Russian president Vladimir Putin the two main issues that brought on the war. Zelensky, who defiantly insisted on his country’s right to joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and was unwilling to discuss thefuture of two breakaway provinces on his eastern frontier, has now conceded on both issues, but only after the death of thousands of Ukrainians, military and civilian, and the devastation of cities, large and small.

    No question exists about the brutality of this war, and for that the majority of the blame lies with Putin and Russia. But Zelensky’s decision to fight to the death in each city, conscripting male residents into the army, and his comment that if the Russians want Kiev they will have to level it, makes the Ukrainian president culpable as well. He has made the cities a war target. His refusal to abandon Mariupol to the Russians in return for the safe exit of civilians there had condemnedthousands more to death.

    In statements make this past week, Zelensky no longer insists on NATO membership and he has signaled a willingness to allow Donetsk and Luhansk to become part of Russia. He could have done that a month ago and prevented the flight of millions of his fellow citizens to sanctuary in other European countries. While the generosity of the Poles, Hungarians another European people in their willingness to accept the millions of refugees is heartening, the disruption of Ukrainianfamilies need never have occurred. Young mothers and their children did not have to be separated from the husbands who stayed behind to fight the Russians, perhaps dying in battle.

    What has Zelensky gained by his macho stance against Putin? Up to this point, he appears to have achieved a lot, including the admiration of the American press corps, congress and especially President Joe Biden. Standing against the Russians is something Americans admire, apparently even if it was prompted by a fatal desire to go down fighting in a war that could have been avoided.

    “Better dead than Red” was once a slogan of the Western world. Zelensky has carried that idea one step beyond. Russia is no longer red, but the blood now being shed by Ukrainian soldiers and civilians is, even if it’s only in a war against a capitalist, not a communist, Russia.

    But it was not only his Ukraine that Zelensky endangered by his seemingly heroic stand against Putin. He has repeatedly made clear that NATO, and particularly the United States, ought to willingly risk World War III in support of his unwise decision to fight Russia. His repeated calls for a “no fly” zone over Ukraine, which would bring American pilots into direct conflict with Russian military aircraft, shows a blatant disregard for the real possibility of war between the U. S. and Russia.

    President Biden has repeatedly made clear the danger of escalation caused by that “no fly” zone but Zelensky continues to plead for it. Even some Republican senators – Lindsey Graham and Rick Scott – have supported his call.

    Putin has already indicated a willingness to use nuclear weapons should the conflict expand. We are appalled by the current extent of destruction in Ukrainian cities. What will it be like if Russian missiles release nuclear bombs on America?

    Were Putin’s principal demands legitimate? It is necessary to separate his concerns regarding Ukraine from those involving Poland and the Baltic nations. Removing missiles from countries on his border had nothing to do with Ukraine, but Putin made it a part of his list related to a possible invasion. Those missiles are a genuine concern. It compares to the U. S. fear of Soviet missiles in Cuba in the early 1960s. We were ready to go to war over that issue, as Putin is today over NATO’s missiles on his frontier.


    If the U. S. can have a Monroe Doctrine that makes it supreme in the Western Hemisphere, can’t Russia, often invaded from the West, insist on a similar policy that limits military confrontation on its western border?

    None of this seems to be of concern to Zelensky. He asks the people of Ukraine to die in defense of a nation that would have needed no defense had their president agreed to reasonable demands a month ago.

    Thank you for the history lesson. Finishing up at 1930's

    One groups "history". There will be plenty of other "historians" who would present alternatives to counterbalance this one.

    Not in any way being a respected "historian or fiction author. Here is on one potential 5 minute history.

    Subsequent, to your posted "history, there were wars plenty. The second WW was fought, the four major winning powers, again, carved up the spoils.

    We also had multiple world institutions created, again. The UN, the UNSC to name just two. Agreements came and went, promises accepted, some countries reduced their world commitments. The UK withdrew from its eastern commitments, Russia withdrew from European countries due to its political/military and commercial power being squandered. Some increased their footprint.

    Some minor wars were won and lost, mainly against unequal combatants, some for now admitted dubious reasons.

    One party, Russia, found a new president, selected rather than elected. Some countries political parties as well, with some being due to contested elections. Initially, the now legally elected Russian president, THE LORD, was very pro Europe, even allegedly requesting NATO membership

    Russia concentrated on building their country, financial and military assets.

    The Russians decided to test the compliance of a major group, NATO and its vassals, to adhere to past UNSC adopted agreements. Why now, only the Russian government knows.

    They were publicly told, by NaGastan and vassals politicians, "on your bike".

    NATO gave the go ahead for Ukraine to "recapture" some areas that refused to be taken back into what they consider a fake country.

    Initially the two major combatants/responsible world powers, Russia and Nagastan chose political means to solve the problems. Once rebuked, NaGastan proxy forces attacked/declared war on Russia.

    The two attacked areas of Ukraine declared sovereignty, as had Kosovo in the 1900s. Russia recognised the two now self pronounced sovereign countries, as had some countries recognised Kosovo, and responded to the military attack, by responding to a UNSC agreed procedure.

    The Russian SMO continues, the NATO countries have broken decades old agreements, military, financially .... and as of the last week, are asking for a ceasefire. Presumably a political solution is being negotiated, which may or not be achievable.

    Will they succeed in stopping the Ukraine citizens being abused by NATO and the Ukraine "government" :

    This Op-Ed is about two months old now, but remains as true as ever.
    It amounts to Putin trying to slope shoulders and shift the blame, for a WAR that he started, and now finds himself unable to win, without the use of weapons of last resort.

    No amount of wriggling and squirming by Putin can excuse his awful conduct in the face of stiff opposition from the Ukrainian people.

    PUTIN is totally responsible for the clusterfuck that HE created.

    I could listen to swish, or I could listen to Jack Matlock, John Mearsheimer, Chomsky, Kissinger et al. Gee, tough choice- let me drink on it.


    Some things never change-


    80000 luxury cars entered Ukraine in the name of "military assistance", which made Ukrainian citizens angry that they hoped Putin would bomb these cars in the video.
    Due to "military assistance", these luxury cars do not need tariffs when entering Ukraine.
    These luxury cars "military assistance" hinder the entry of real aid materials into Ukraine.
    The Lviv customs of Ukraine has confirmed the existence of this matter.

    On April 5, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law №7190P, which temporarily abolished customs duties, VAT and excise tax on the import of cars from abroad. The authorities explained this decision by the fact that the Ukrainians need to restore the car fleet, which was damaged and destroyed during the fighting. Babel and West Auto Hub have gathered answers to the main questions about the import of cars from the EU, the necessary documents and other features of the new procedure.


    Now any car can be imported into Ukraine from the EU duty free?

    Yes. Except for cars imported from Russia or Belarus, or made there. Cars, trucks
