Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're saying Ukraine is a sovereign country and then, in the next breath, that any settlement has to be acceptable to the US? Isn't that Russia's problem with Ukraine - it sees the Ukraine as basically a proxy for the USA and Nato on it's doorstep. It seems to me that the war is governed by increasing costs and diminishing returns. Some scorched earth in eastern Donbass isn't worth what it is costing Russia now, even if it takes some time for them to admit it to themselves.
