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.
