    Ummmmm, just which two countries would those be?

    Some creditable news links, UN Articles to support your assertion please.

    Recognition of a new state essentially means legally recognising the transfer of sovereignty over a territory from one authority to another.
    An international body, including the UN, cannot just take away territory without the permission of the original “host” state.
    To do so would be a violation of one of the defining rules of the system of states.

    Bonehead solidarity- how Touching. Fact remains, describing people such as Jack Matlock, Pat Buchanan etc as "Putin apologists" marks you a a real dumbshit.

    The fact remains you are so desperate to try and show that anyone supports this murderer that you will cling onto any old shite you can find.

    There you are, sabang, Russia doesn’t want a U.N. observed referendum. That should tell you they are not keen on the outcome.


    Kremlin Hails Musk’s Attempt at Ukraine Peace Deal

    The Kremlin has hailed U.S. billionaire Elon Musk’s attempt to put forward a peace plan to end Russia’s war in Ukraine, calling it a “very positive” sign on Tuesday.


    The world’s wealthiest man outlined his proposal for a peace deal to his 107 million Twitter followers on Monday. Its terms sparked fierce backlash from Ukraine and the West, who said the prospective deal largely favored Moscow.


    “We consider it very positive that a man like Musk is looking for a peaceful way out of the situation around Ukraine,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, according to Interfax.


    The Tesla and SpaceX founder proposed a redo of last week’s referendums in four Moscow-occupied Ukrainian regions that were widely panned as shams, as well as recognizing the annexed Crimean peninsula as part of Russia.

    "Achieving peace without meeting Russia's conditions is absolutely impossible. Many ideas there deserve attention," Peskov said of Musk’s peace plan.


    While the Kremlin dismissed Musk’s idea to hold the referendums a second time under UN observation, Peskov praised him for attempting to broker peace, unlike many professional diplomats.


    “Today the president will sign decrees, and this will become the territory of the Russian Federation. But I repeat once again, the fact itself is very positive, when people such as this try to think logically about what could be done in order to establish peace," Peskov added.


    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky responded to Musk’s tweet by polling his followers: "Which @elonmusk do you like more?" with the options "One who supports Ukraine" and "One who supports Russia."


    The wartime president then pledged that Kyiv would never negotiate with Russia as long as President Vladimir Putin remained in power, a vow that the Kremlin criticized as a roadblock to peace.


    “All these proposals, even from those who have the wisdom to think about them, break down after Zelensky’s decision that it is impossible to continue any negotiations with President Putin," Peskov said.


    Musk, who has in the past made overtures to Putin and sparred on social media with Russia's space chief, tweeted in March that he was challenging the Russian president to "single combat," with Ukraine as the prize.

    It's getting easier for them. That's about 60 km's in 3 days near Kherson, and in the East they are already on the outskirts of Kremenna faster than I thought. Russia can barely set up a defensive line. Gotta push them as far back as possible before the snow flies, then just sit back, hit their supply lines with the himars, and freeze them out.

    Freeze the Russians out. That'll be a cold day in hell. Lyman was by far the biggest strategic capture the Ukies have made in this war, and I can certainly understand them pressing their advantage before those reinforcements start arriving in numbers- the gorilla in the room. Can they take Kherson? Just waiting and seeing.

    sabang doesn't understand "supply lines".

    And the thought of a load of terrified and ill-prepared conscripts being forced to go and freeze their nuts off... yeah that'll work.

    The Russian army is on the brink of total collapse in Kherson. Russian mil bloggers have been having a conniption fit the last two days on telegram.

    This is what true liberation looks like. A true heroes welcome by liberated Ukrainians. This should make any decent person smile...

    Musk responded to Ukrainian accusations of a “pro-Russian” position

    After Elon Musk published a number of posts on the social network on October 3 with his vision of ending the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, a flurry of criticism from Ukrainian users and, if I may say so, elites fell upon the billionaire.



    Many users who read Musk's proposals were quick to accuse the head of SpaceX of a "pro-Russian" position. After all, one of the points of his settlement plan is the recognition of Crimea as Russian, as it was, literally, “before Khrushchev’s mistake.”

    Some Ukrainian officials, as well as their wives, completely went over Musk with obscene posts, urging him to shut up (actually a much less literary word was used) and focus on supplying Ukraine with free high-speed Internet.

    Zelensky went even further, published a post calling for a choice between a pro-Russian and a pro-Ukrainian Mask.

    Today, the American billionaire published another message in which he responded to accusations from the so-called "haters".

    Musk recalled that his SpaceX corporation had already spent about $80 million to provide the Armed Forces with Starlink wireless Internet. At the same time, the businessman stressed that he spent $0 on Russia.

    Thus, according to Musk, accusations against him of a “pro-Russian” position are completely absurd.

    In turn, the billionaire explained the position on the Crimea. He believes that an attempt by Ukraine to return the peninsula by military means can lead to irreparable consequences, ranging from huge losses in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to a nuclear conflict.

    In addition, the businessman noted that today's escalation in Ukraine is harming the whole world. That is why it needs to be stopped as soon as possible. To this end, he published his proposals for de-escalation.

    According to Musk, sooner or later it will be necessary to agree, and therefore it is better sooner than later, as this will save people's lives.

    That article talks about Ukrainian partisans killing traitors, and the map pretty much matches snubs. So, what is your point?

    Nothing has been retaken, and I stand by my comment that the Russian army is on the brink of collapse in Kherson. In regard to the partisans, good on them, their activities are only going to intensify.

    The maps I posted on this page are accurate and the most up to date.

    In principle a few hundred thousand reinforcements should make Russian resistance much stronger. When you add in the facts that the reinforcements are uneager conscripts, poorly trained, lightly armed, insufficiently clothed for the coming winter, running out of food and ammunition as their supply lines are cut, it is difficult to see how much difference they will make. Except perhaps to further strain limited rations. How do you think the real fighters will feel about sharing their food?
