  1. Can Zelensky achieve his goals? I wish! But the lack of western support makes me believe he can’t. Ukraine is dying. A slightly smaller Ukraine is still better than no Ukraine. It hurts to talk like this, but too much blood is shed. My patriotism is tied to the people, not territory. I know i won’t find much support here for my position, but that doesn’t bother me. All that i care about is the lives of my beloved ukrainians. Btw, fuck Trump – endorse Haley!

    • 95% of Ukrainians says NO territory for peace because the Moskali are incapable of honoring their deals. So we would be just giving them territory and feeding the bear. Don’t feed the bears, they will just come back for more, and more and more…;)
