The US State Department is reportedly getting in the way of negotiations between Russia and Ukraine. Russia is willing to talk and Zelensky wants to talk but the US wants to add conditions.
Zelensky: “Russia, I want peace. Let’s talk.”
Putin: “Ukraine, we can talk.”
US State Department: “Isn’t there someone that you forgot to ask?” https://t.co/7lYHmzEDFe

Ukrainians are dying, not US soldiers. It’s time for the U.S. to get out of the way.
President Zelensky appealed to Israel earlier today and the Israel Prime Minister might help moderate the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.
That being said, in this century, what Putin is doing – the way he’s going about it – is very wrong. It’s evil.
Biden keeps offering Zelensky opportunities to flee but he’s staying. President Zelensky may have made mistakes but he’s putting it all on the line now.
We’re so used to posturing and talking points and brand management from politicians that it’s almost breathtaking to witness actual courage, resolve, and leadership. No one pretends Zelensky isn’t flawed, but the man is rising to the moment. https://t.co/drQRjWwEiW

How dare external countries do anything outside of the swamp blob.
This distraction is needed and those poll numbers are dismal.
The Ukraine became a US Puppet State back when they paid “tribute” to Hunter and Traitor Joe. Putin finally got fed up with the Ukraine and Old Money European Puppet Masters who have been operating in the Ukraine. If the Ukraine surrenders, Putin will amass his army in the Ukraine. He can then control most of Europe’s energy supplies and in a few months be in the position to cut a beeline across the center of Europe. Since Traitor Joe has destroyed the US Based Oil industry we won’t have the energy resources available to stop Russia.
This is another strong indicator that the USA is at fault here. It wants control over the victim (Ukraine) it created. Ukraine is an independent nation, but not according to US policy, as the US wants control.
The aggressive actions of Russia have a basis which we do not well understand. But there is plenty of reason to not trust our own nation. For example, Biden has the same group of war enthusiasts in change as Obama did. They helped created ISIS (equipment was surrendered to them such as 2300 armored humvees). The US took a strong anti-Syria position as ISIS was overrunning the country. We wanted a no fly zone to keep Russia away from its ally. We never gave proof of the alleged gas attacks by Syria which made no sense. Finally, Putin and Trump fixed Syria. These war makers were devastated that Hillary lost and they now continue their destabilization. This time they chose Ukraine, a bastion of DC corruption (money laundering), Intel manipulation (2014 coup) and a tool to use for the 2022 election.
Let’s say Ukraine is successful in pushing back the Russians. What’s next. How will Kiev react to the ethnic Russians in the Donbass. Will it be another Poroshenko, only on steroids. What Zelensky needs to do, and should do, is to isolate ethnic Russians From Russia, but not in a way that removes their identity. That’s what led to this fiasco. He made promises that he reneged on and now is the time to fulfill those promises. If he would address the people, specifically to the Donbass, and commit to writing that those people will be accepted as every other Ukrainian citizen, it may go a long way to resolve their issues. That is, if it’s not too late. It has been reported the Chechens are on the way to fight. These aren’t regular army. They are ruthless And relentless. You could consider them similar to the South African mercenaries in capabilities, only more ruthless.
Maybe the West should learn something from India. They do well in navigating relations with the West and Also Russia.
