    Any compromise is a reward for aggression. The end state MUST be removal of the invader's forces from the victim's territories and some compensatory consequences. Anything short of that is either rewarding aggression or at minimum non-consequence.

      @Gabersonn Oi Precisely - if the West does not want to reward Russia then the battlefield will. The battlefield already gave them Crimea and the Donbass.

    A Tribute to Ukraine
    The Fight
    Where were you
    when the walls came crumbling down.
    Fearing for our lives
    In our home towns.
    Where children once played
    Laughter was everywhere
    We now find graves
    Seems like only...we care.
    But now,
    We're standing side by side
    Defending arm in arm
    Praying for our lives.
    And now,
    We're standing toe to toe
    Fighting hand to hand
    Dying for our nation's soul.
    Instrumental 🎶
    If we lose.
    If this was our last fight.
    I promise you
    We didn't run and hide.
    Only one way to live
    Head high and full of pride
    What we would give
    Our blood and tears we cried.
    But now,
    We're standing side by side
    Defending arm in arm
    Praying for our lives.
    And now,
    We're standing toe to toe
    Fighting hand to hand
    Dying for our nation's soul.
    Instrumental 🎶
    A burst of lightning
    coming from the morning sky
    confuses all
    We will not run and hide.
    But now,
    We're standing side by side
    Defending arm in arm
    Praying for our lives.
    And now,
    We're standing toe to toe
    Fighting hand to hand
    Dying for our nation's.....
    And then,
    There's one thing that remains.
    Fight until the death
    Fight for our Ukraine.
    But now,
    Our prayers were not met
    By those who stood by
    By those who would forget. .
    By Humble Driver

      @Humble Driver It's a nice thought but don't forget the struggle of the ethnic minorities within Ukraine that have suffered at the hands of the Ukrainian majority for years. There are innocent people everywhere but Ukraine is an extremely corrupt, failed state that need to be liberated. I don't like the idea of framing them as virtuous victims. Legitimate victims notwithstanding.

    Man, I respect these diplomats and their experiences and education, but Putin has said many, many times that he does not recognize Ukraine as a sovereign country - they essentially don't exist. If Putin sees Ukraine as a non-country, non-people, he is going to continue pushing ahead with his campaign until either he wins or he is defeated. That is it.

      @Sam Gibson It is that both sides probably see this as a way to wear each other down, well at least the Russians do. But at some point the Russians will run out of criminals to throw into the meat grinder, then what? They do still have allot man power in in their country, but so far it is that vs superior weapons and properly equipped Ukrainians. Quantity in men vs quality across the board for the Ukrainian side.

    A compromise between Russia and Ukraine is not an issue, it just shows that the countries talking about it want to have good relations with Russia and be able to do business with Russia after the war.
    They don't care about Ukraine and their right to their own territory.
    What the Indian expert says is for India's good for the future. not for the good of Ukraine and their right to their lands invaded by Russia since 2014.

      It's more complicated than that. What Ukraine really lacks now is Infantry, and the problem will worsen. It will worsen to Russia too, but not to the same critical level and that is the real problem. Frankly, I see no chance for Ukraine to win at the long run unless NATO is committed. Just armament by itself will not do miracles; the Wehrmacht had plenty of armament in 1944 too, when production peaked, but not enough manpower. And any armament needs skilled manpower anyway. If NATO will join the fight or not is yet to be seen. It depends very much on the Russians, actually. The more they approach the Polish border, the more likely it will be for NATO to react. I wouldn't be too surprised to see Poland suddenly joining the fight, eventually dragging all NATO behind. And no one should criticise them for that.

      Fortunately we had a change of government in 1942 and the GG at the time probably ingest told our PM that he was in fact the C in C of our armed forces and could do what he liked - So he ordered two Australian warships to turned to towards Port Moresby much to churchills annoyance - These ships off loaded at Milne Bay - 2 battalions of army reservists and 1 regular army australian battalion promptly shoved the Japanese off the island

    When Russia started this war I thought Ukraine should not settle one acre of land with Russia. However, a year later and the destruction and needless death that Ukraine has suffered has reached a boiling point. I think if it were to create a cease fire Ukraine should offer Russia Crimea as a settlement. But "only" Crimea. It would isolate Russia, and make it easy to keep an eye on their fleet (what's left of it) and there is no way Russia can use Crimea as a launching point to attack other countries. NATO could basically squeeze Russia and make sure any further attacks against Ukraine would be near impossible due to the defensive and offensive military equipment right across the bridge from Crimea. I know this is kinda moot point at this point of the war, but Putin did walk into Crimea without hardly a shot fired I thought. Completely opposite of Russia's invasion into the rest of Ukraine. And Ukraine can charge Russia whatever it likes to supply Crimea with the water it needs to help pay back for all the destruction. But isolating Russia so they have no wiggle room to start any more conflict is the real key. But, I may be wrong with this idea, I just hate seeing any more Ukraine civilians suffer because Russia sucks. Actually, I think there is no real point (never was) to this war after a year and Russia hasn't achieved anything but the slaughter of civilians both Ukrainian and Russian, and blow up a bunch of shit. Did I mention Russia sucks?.

    Just as Adolph's troops were being routed he kept issuing orders that forbade organized retreats, armies should keep their positions at all costs. As the Allied troops were crossing the borders and the Nazis were desperately recruiting teenagers and older folk, he is on record saying that if the people failed at defending the Fatherland, he would not shed a tear for them.

      Bosnia had been attacked by Croatia and Serbia and response from Western and America was: no right for Bosnia to self-defense and since Bosnia has almost liberated itself from both aggressors, then half of the country was given to Serbian aggressors as a reward for war crimes in Bosnia. Why is Russian aggression so wrong and Serbian and Croatian aggression were backed by the West and America? Crime is crime right???? Sorry, but no! It depends on who the inveder is...

      Well, the Brits are a very special breed. After all, they had an Empire and fought Napoleon and Hitler single handedly - at certain periods - when other Nations tried some sort of accommodation. The British are a proud and fearless people, they won't allow themselves to be pushed around by primal murderers like Putin or any other, and they rightfully consider the Russians to be a bunch of treacherous savages. And at the same time they are politically a very mature people and give freedom its deserved value. You certainly can't imagine Putin as Prime Minister in the United Kingdom, right? 😂 But he thrives in Russia. There is a reason for that: the people.

  • D Lewis

    Ukraine, in anticipation of beating Putin might want to start demanding a buffer zone of Russian territory between itself and Russia. So between the Ukraine border and Moscow, half of that territory should be committed to neutrality where no one is permitted nuclear weapons.

  • C S

    We must make sure they have not died in vain. If Russia is rewarded with negotiations and land when this war is over. We have failed then, failed to not repeat the 1938 mistake. My view is this: Only Ukraine is allowed to say that they would secede territories for peace. If we force this on them, this will not bode well in the long term. They are proud people and will rightly so take an insult if we negotiate over their heads with their tormentors. The way ahead is long and thorny. But if we are willing to walk it side by side with Ukraine: They could bring security to Europe and the whole region as a shield to the east. But the question remains: Will fear triumph over visionaries? We have two paths:
    1. To give in to Blackmail (nuclear, energy, food, refugees) and lead the world into turmoil and chaos, forget our values and just admit that human rights, the Geneva Convention and the rules based order are really just words as Russia claims.
    2. We are showing with our actions that we are dead serious about all of this, that we really mean that borders cannot be moved by force, that we will not tolerate Genocide in broad daylight on Europe’s front porch. This is the harder way that takes the most courage. We would then have to have the courage to say: Yes Ukraine is a democracy in its cradle. Yes they're worth defending, yes their fight is our fight. Yes if they lose democracy as a whole loses.
    So which path do we choose? I hope we already chose one. The moment we choose one, we must only walk it to the end: The end of the last colonial empire on earth and prison of nations: Russia calls it a Federation. To me it seems more like a Colonial empire in which the very few rule like feudal lords over the many...

    Best case scenario: (can happen today) Russia leaves past the 1991 borders and agrees to a demilitarized zone that encompasses the Ukrainian Donbas and Crimea. 2nd best scenario: a win: Ukraine drives Russia out of it's 1991 internationally recognized borders and peace is enforced with help of NATO and UN. Worse case scenario: doing what Putin says to do at the end of a russian gun.. or sledgehammer. A horrible loss. a capitulation.

    Ukraine has to throw Russia out of its territory, that's the only way for this war to end. Then once that happens, NATO peacekeepers can then charge in and position themselves right on the Belarus-Russia-Ukraininan border to protect the country.
    This may very well draw a new iron curtain across Europe but peace has to be maintained.

    We already know that Russian weaponry and military planning, tactics, procurement, etc., fall shockingly short of what was previously assumed to be the case. Regarding the will and capability of Russia to continue this aggression against Ukraine there is less certainty. Mr. Mahbubani implies that the economic and diplomatic sanctions that have been imposed against Russia are not terribly onerous, that Russia can continue its invasion in spite of these sanctions. There are others who disagree with this assessment and claim that the regime's solvency and civil order itself are teetering on the brink. I don't doubt that Putin is grateful to analysts like Mr. Mahbubani. The widespread acceptance of his version by western governments bodes well for a negotiated settlement favorable to Russia.

  • Liquid Rock

    It's a typical colonial war and must end the same way all the other European colonial wars eventually ended: by defeat followed by political and social changes in the aggressor that made it abandon colonial ambitions. French and British didn't just give up on their empires: they simply lost in India, Algeria, Vietnam and other places. The only difference it that Russia directly neighbors it's former colony which makes it easier for them to claim that it was a part of their empire all along rather than a sovereign entity.
    Either way, you don't stop a colonial power by giving them land. If at the end of the war they win less land and at a higher cost that they predicted it will be a disappointment for them for sure but still they DO win land and that's enough to fuel their imperialism. That means that any peace settlement is just kicking the can down the road. It won't last unless Russia suffers a decisive defeat and is forced to rethink their place in the world. The only thing to talk about right now is the conditions of the Russian army leaving the internationally recognised Ukrainian territory. Anything else means that Russia de facto wins the war.

    Putin talks about his 'life or death struggle'. Hitler wrote a book called 'Mein Kampf' (My struggle), Hitler annexed Austria in the Anschluss and the Sudetenland using the pretext that ethnic Germans were being victimised, Putin annexed Crimea, covertly supported the Donbas separatists and has now invaded Ukraine using the very same excuse. Putin talks about Novorossiya, to re-establish 'New Russia' and provide more resources and living space for the Russians, Hitler pursued his policy of 'Lebensraum' (living space). Hitler had a concept of an Aryan race and pursued policies of ethnic cleansing and extermination to achieve that goal, Putin is doing the same thing in Ukraine, a country he does not recognise and believes is Russian. Hitler's Nazis plundered fine art and other valuable antiques, Putin's soldiers are doing the very same thing......
