“Conversation with French colleague and friend Jean-Yves Le Drian. France supports disconnecting Russia from SWIFT. I insist on the immediate imposition of the 3rd EU sanctions package to stop the Russian invasion. France is also ready to supply weapons and equipment to help Ukraine defend itself” – said Kuleba.

  1. Sanctions are not going to stop the invasion. If the west will give Ukraine the material support she needs, then the cost of the invasion can be made to exceed Russia’s capacity to pay the price. Putin has already lost the people he needs to keep the war going and has resorted to Justin Trudeau’s methods.

  2. But now Hungary is on the train if i got it right?

    However, Hungary do offer a place to negotiate and i hope Zelensky and Putin accept the offer.
