As weird as it sounds I think NATO should be in Ukraine. Russia (Putin) needs to be stopped and as we already know from history appeasement does not work and costs more lives.

Not yet what they seem to e doing is trying to create a pressure cooker. Keep applying pressure to Russia the economy while at the same time taking steps to allow Ukraine to hold out long enough to benefit from it. Russia is already negotiating with Ukraine something they rejected early on but now they are looking for a way out.

Russia is beginning to realize this in untenable. Even China has started talking to Ukraine since they are a major supplier to their military. And publicly they are already saying they will not be supplying Russia so that lifeline is gone for Russia.

I like your optimism but I don't think it'll be that easy.....If Russia tried to stop this and negotiate I'm afraid the traitors In office will drop a false flag to keep things going.

U.S. officials told several news outlets on the condition of anonymity 



Analysts speaking on the condition of anonymity tell U.S. News 


Very last paragraph, not anonymous:


“China will certainly continue to develop relations with Russia and Russia will continue to export energy, wheat and corn to China. Besides, China will export commodities needed by Russia,” Hu said, further criticizing what he considered the Biden administration’s attempts to undermine the relationship: “Does the U.S. think it is God? China is a major power pursuing an independent foreign policy and China-U.S. relations must be mutually respectful. China will not seek to ease the tensions with the U.S. by damaging China-Russia relations.”


Not quite propaganda but misdirection surely.

I saw two massive explosions live streamed at approx 4:49 Kiev time to the SW. The explosions could be seen on the Kiev cams and a corresponding flash in Berezan and Brovary, Berezan is approximately 70km west. There has been no incidents in Berezan in the last few weeks I've been watching. Brovary cam is new so not sure if anything has happened there previously.
