Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The shape of a potential deal with Ukraine has been obvious from day one: Russia gets to (officially) keep Crimea and Ukraine keeps Donbass as an autonomous province but with close links to Russia, doesn't join NATO but can join the EU. It's just a matter of how much time and destruction it takes before military realities force Russia to accept such a "solution"

Since Bucha, Ukranians have a very different idea of what constitutes an acceptable deal. Leaving any of their people to be raped and murdered by Russia is no longer acceptable. Instead, the minimum now (according to Zelenskiy this morning) is all their land back.
