Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Russian media is today quoting a lot Strana.ua (which 2nd most popular Ukrainian news site, and apparently the biggest opposition news site - so Russian disinformation, I'm sure) about a lot of private jets leaving Ukraine for EU countries and especially a ban for members of Verhovnaya Rada representing Servant of the People party leaving country.

If all the US embassy workers are leaving, one wonders who will actually run Ukrainian government from now on? Is Zelensky preparing for a coup? Will Ukraine become sovereign? Can Zelensky implement Minsk Accords against the will of ethno-nationalists?

Ukraine hit hard by financial and economic costs of stand-off with Russia. Unity in government are showing fundamental cracks. Most obvious started by Zelensky. The hardliners are MFA and recently appointed minister of Defense.

Last night a trial balloon was launched by Ukrainian Ambassador to UK on a BBC program.

Today a slight backtrack: "Ukraine ambassador  launched clarifies his remarks on Nato membership."

Just breaking from Moscow ... positive sign for a diplomatic solution.

G7 willing for urgent financial package for Ukraine. Many will profit in this ultra-corrupt nation and in the meantime has become more weaponized and dangerous. An unstable nation in a global crisis.
