I think all said and done he's right. This won't turn into a Kuwait when Hussein invaded and West kicked him out. In the end there will need to be a compromise between Putin and Zelenskyy.

So why didn't they negotiate those terms before all the destruction and deaths?!
Replying to @RidgeOnSunday
Totally wrong. It鈥檚 easy for an army of superior numbers and firepower to concentrate on an area and take it. When I say easy , it was anything but easy, but I鈥檓 speaking more of an inevitable outcome.
Replying to @RidgeOnSunday
But , by doing this they have suffered incredible losses that can not be replaced for many years.

At last its good to hear reality being voiced in the predictions. Yes say the Ruskies - We are here to stay- What are you going to do about it. Putin will turn the screw that there is no doubt.
Replying to @RidgeOnSunday
The only way to stop Putin is to go in heavy and hard. That's it he doesn't know anything else, and will never surrender. The time has come for the world to put the cost of gas aside and do what we should have done months ago!

Disappointed at no mention of the 1 million kidnapped Ukrainians taken to Russian territory or 'filtration camps', rapes slaughters happening daily in the occupied south, just blah blah Donbass and territory concessions. Poor preparation would expect more from Sophie

Ukraine can't win on goodwill, a reality check is necessary. There isn't a strategy to defeat the Russians at present. The signs are showing defeat.
