    As an American, I support Ukraine 100%, I agree with John on everything he said about helping Ukraine. I agree that the US has been dragging it feet on aid and equipment.

      Tip towing around Putin; not to provoke bunker Grandpa.
      If trump was in power, Ukraine would get nothing. IMO putin thought trump weakened NATO to stroll right through UKR and take the entire country.

    From A Canadian living in Poland since 2007:
    Absolutely not related to this, but important I think if you want to understand Poland and the Baltic States vis-a-vis the war in Ukraine. Mr. Sweeney will get that.
    In 2023, the russians will not be forgotten here in Eastern Europe, or in the Baltic States. Or in the Czech Republic. Or in the former East Germany for that matter! - Or in so many other towns and villages between my building in Poland... and Ukraine.
    The russians' occupation of Eastern Europe always gives horror stories to those who listen. At least you hear about them when you live here like I do for almost 20 years.
    You see, every holiday we have,... No! Better said, at most family gatherings we do. We listen to at least one old family member telling us how their sister or brother was "transferred" to somewhere in russia in the 1950's. Or 1960's. Or later!
    Who cares when? They WERE. By the russians.
    Their older brother was transferred because he was an electrician. And they needed electricians all the way out in the East of the ruzzian empire that day.
    None of them ever saw their sister or brother. Mostly - Their names were changed you see.
    That story?
    You get it in any family in Eastern Europe as soon as you step foot here. So do NOT expect the Ukrainians to give up. They wont. Nor will we.
    Ukrainians are fighting for their freedom.
    We get that so much.

    John Sweeney is right! This war is not just a war. It’s about democracy against autocracy. It’s about people who believe in democracy, common decency and rule of law helping the other people with same belief against an autocratic conqueror.

    The Ukrainian resistance is a model of courage and determination. It’s a reminder of why bravery, duty and a willingness to defend your nation are utterly indispensable. Too many of us in the West have grown cynical about these virtues. We in the West have given up on courage. Our safety-first approach to life equates bravery with recklessness. The Ukrainian resistance reminds us why courage matters - and why we all need to rediscover this virtue. On the other hand, I look at Russia and only see the past. No future. Very troubling, but Russian citizens can't see this. 😞

      It is a horrible position to be in. you have the anxiety that the war brings, and yet you are not under direct threat of being killed. I too have loved ones in Ukraine and at the start of the war and for about 2 months, they were in such a place as they could not escape due to effectively being surrounded. But then the Russians pulled back and stole their car, so even now, options are limited for them to move. Hopefully this war will soon be resolved and you can meet up with your loved ones.

    Thank you John for your spirit of generosity and humanity as expressed in this interview, and for your courage exposing and documenting the cruelty being visited on the Ukrainians by the Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin, and for also calling out two of Mr Putin's "useful idiots" in the West, Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson.
    Hopefully you are right and the Ukrainians will succeed in removing the Russian invaders from their country either this year or before the next US election, due next year!

    I've long viewed this conflict through the lens of an abusive relationship, as Sweeney also pointed out. Ukraine was the ex-wife that was thriving without her abusive ex-husband and faced a promising future free from him. Russia was not about to let that humiliation happen and so invaded to take back possession.

      @long and short thank you guys - the offensive seems to start and it will apparently be a set of actions on different places (not a one single hit). As Russians are prepaired - they have to think it out properly as there is only one try I suppose. I am glad to see Storm Shadow rockets in the action already and other countries should wake up as well. Personally I think - Hungary should be taken off from European Union and mainly from NATO.

    That comparison with an abusive relationship is spot on. A malignant narcissist scorched earth exit. And giving succor to the abuser is just giving it ideas how it can defend itself. It otherwise has no understanding of morality or compassion.

    John Sweeney at around 17 minutes makes the exact point I’ve been thinking for months, there is a strong parallel between Russian behavior and that of an abusive partner. Russia will do whatever it can to prevent anyone else from “having Ukraine”.

    This horror will only end when the 500 year empire ends and Russia is faced with an unavoidable reckoning.
