  • “The U.S. Deputy Secretary of State called it a great achievement to maintain the comprehensive and complete ceasefire for 31 days already.”

    The U.S. Deputy Secretary of State is talking out of his rear end. Not sure why all the media in the West are proclaiming this ceasefire has not been violated for a month, it is violated every day.

    • The next US administration needs to formulate a pro-active strategy to stop all this nonsense once and for all.
      The time for diplomacy has passed. A crushing sanctions regime and the establishment of a powerful US military base at Ochakiv will be two steps in the right direction.

      • This is playing right into the hands of Russia. Along with the useless sack of crap pretending to be the Ukrainian president, and the EU champing at the bit to get back to business as usual with the mafia state, the situation in Ukraine looks worse than has done for years. Ukraine have to take a lot of the blame, by not crushing corruption, they proved money is more important than loyalty to their country.

        • It is crucial to deal with corruption, but even if they do, it still won’t change much for Ukraine’s international position. It is now crystal clear that the existing members of Nato and the EU have no intention of ever letting Ukraine or Georgia join. Both outfits are swarming with putlerite scum.
          Whilst it is confirmed that the putinazis did influence Brexit, the reason is misunderstood. Popular opinion has it that putler hates the EU and wants to weaken it by Britain’s withdrawal. In fact the truth is that the EU will be stronger from a putinazi standpoint post-Brexit, since it will be left with only Pribaltika and Poland as anti-putler states.

          • Scandinavia is not pro-Putler, but other than the Baltic States – Sweden and Finland are not in Nato and therefore left alone in case of an aggression. This is a burden for scandinavian foreign politics, in particular with leftist shit ruling Sweden.

            • Denmark didn’t try too hard to stop the Putler pipe from being laid in Danish waters.

              • That has to do with the law, which is different from US law. The pipe itself is not illegal according to the law. Denmark has been supportive of Ukraine since Maidan and beyond. And Denmark was the first to push for sanctions against Belarus. Denmark’s former Prime Minister and ex-Nato secretary Rasmussen was personal advisor to Poroshenko. Not bad for a small country which never was under a Soviet yoke. So, what did the UK do concerning the pipeline?

                  • You see. But the UK supports Ukraine, like Denmark. Ukraine could need way more support, no doubt. But Ukraine could also need more support by its own current government…

                    • At the end of the day, the only real support for Ukraine has to come from the US. They are the only country that will stand up to Russia.

                    • Britain almost always follows America’s lead. A rare case when it didn’t was Viet Nam. If the next president proposes troops on the ground for Ukraine, Britain will follow.
                      I’ve given up any hope in the putler-friendly Nato states ever coming to Ukraine’s aid. It has to be US, UK, Pribaltika, Poland and possibly Canada acting on their own initiative.
                      Nato is dead. It was formed to protect Europe from Russian aggression, so it’s no longer fit for purpose.

            • As I said, in Europe only Pribaltika, Poland and Britain are anti-Russia. The rest are pro, indifferent or wishy-washy like the Scandies.
