Boris Johnson's promises to the Ukrainian people

Ms Daria Kaleniuk, the executive director of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC), a civil society organisation, added: "Ukrainian people are desperately asking for the rights to protect our sky, we are asking for a no-fly zone - what's the alternative for the no-fly zone?"
Mr Johnson said: "I'm acutely conscious that there is not enough that we can do, as the UK government, to help in the way that you want and I've got to be honest about that.
"When you talk about the no-fly zone, as I said to (Ukrainian President) Volodymyr Zelensky a couple of times, unfortunately the implication of that is the UK would be engaged in shooting down Russian planes, it would be engaged in direct combat with Russia.
"That's not something that we can do or that we've envisaged. The consequences of that would be truly very, very difficult to control."

Stoltenberg on Poland MIG-29 delivery
No fighter plane transfers to Ukraine through allied airspace | Stars and Stripes - March 1, 2022 |
On Monday, the European Union's high representative, Josep Borrell, said numerous countries were prepared to provide Ukraine with fighter jets. And Ukraine's parliament said Monday that Poland was among the countries ready to provide Soviet-era MiG-29 fighters.
Polish President Andrzej Duda spoke ambiguously Tuesday about how or whether those planes would arrive.
But one day after a top European Union official said some countries were ready to provide fighters to Ukraine, NATO appears to have put on the brakes.
Reporter (TVN 24): Good morning, TVN 24 (Reporter). I would like to ask about the support of NATO to Ukraine. And I would like to ask about the combat jets, fighter that Ukraine has asked for. Has Ukraine already been provided with them or if not is it going to be provided with them? And will NATO make it possible for Ukraine to use NATO airfields or airbases like for example, this one we are at here today?
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: Well NATO stands in solidarity with Ukraine. NATO Allies have imposed severe costs on Russia for its totally unjustified and reckless invasion of Ukraine and we will hold both Russia and Belarus accountable for what they are doing by enabling the Russian invasion of Ukraine. NATO Allies have imposed costs on Russia by implementing severe sanctions. We actually addressed those sanctions in the phone call with President Biden and President Duda, and other NATO leaders and the EU. NATO Allies provide different types of military support: material, anti-tank weapons, air defense systems and other types of military equipment for Ukraine, humanitarian aid and also financial support. But NATO is not to be part of the conflict. NATO is not going to send the troops into Ukraine or move planes into Ukrainian airspace. Then, I think it is for President Duda to answer the question about Potential Polish planes being made available For the Ukrainian Air Force.
Speaking with one voice willing to negotiate, speaking with one voice willing to enter the war through Poland and deception, letting Borrell do our defense planning in a moment of crisis? Where is Ursula Von Der Leyen when she's needed?

Patriot Pac-3 missiles should protect our Rotterdam port ! Bart Groothuis VVD |
The port of Rotterdam could become an important target for Russia if a large-scale conflict with the West breaks out. That is why, among other things, Patriot missiles must be placed near the port. That is what VVD MEP Bart Groothuis says. 'The supply of NATO military equipment to Europe must be guaranteed, I think that is insufficiently the case.'
Where Dutch PM Mark Rutte find these candidates for parliament? Read a chapter on the Liberation of Europe in 1945 and knows it all! A mockery to give peace a chance.

The false promise of continental concert: Russia, the West and the necessary balance of power
Hans Morgenthau felt compelled to refer to Winston Churchill in the opening to his assessment of what the United States should do at the point—in 1951—when it stood on the brink of an enduring conflict with the Soviet Union. ‘There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away,’ the British statesman was quoted as saying, after which Morgenthau went in search of the intellectual strength and political will that a successful balance of power policy necessitates.
