Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hmmmm... If only Ukraine and NATO had made Putin a reasonable offer.... the war of conquest he has been methodically planning for ten years could have been prevented?

While I fully understand, and even admire, the attempts in 1938 to prevent war; and while Macron's attempts at mediation were worthy, they were futile.

In such circumstances, any concession is recognised as a sign of weakness, and exploited accordingly.

Putin is still not ready to negotiate, so he'll have to be pushed back.

Come on Euro ☘️ ... you can do better.

NATO? Ukraine? The man at the top pulling the strings and makes the moves is Joe ... initiated the coup d'état of 2014, got Hunter a nice position for a bit, issue has become quite personal. UA did all to prevent a Trump presidency, so why not support a friend and continue a failed foreign policy.

The most stupid bit of war propaganda ever designed. 😂

Whiff of Munich in the Air | Feb. 13, 2022 |

Zelensky knew exactly the red line of the Kremlin - see Cuban Missile crisis of 1962 - but had no legitimacy to negotiate an agreement. For eight years failed to meet the Minsk Agreements or fulfill the Normandy Four initiatives.

After the war started, Zelensky came forward with a compromise that would have met the Kremlin request .... a fortnight too late. A chained man under the impression of the Western hero ... such a Greek tragedy ... theater.
