That's a beautiful video. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and Ukraine will be asked by the USA to enter into serious negotiations for Peace, so that there could be a lot more videos like that forthcoming.

Babushka was crying for joy to see her grandson still alive. I'm sure a lot of family members are wondering if their sons, husbands, grandsons brothers are still alive. Bad politics can ruin good people's lives.

Diplomacy should've been the first thing to happen. We knew for over a year Russia was building up an army next to Ukraine. They went to NATO with their grievances. We ignored them and dismissed diplomacy. I don't have faith in our current government. Just look how they abandoned the people who helped us in the Afghanistan and Vietnam wars. It may end badly for the Ukrainians too.
Over 220 generals and admirals say we are in a fight for our survival like no other time since 1776. If you want to stop the war in Ukraine, fix elections, stop medical tyranny and forced vaccinations, lower inflation and make America and the world a better place, get Trump back into power. The Democrats and Republicans have shown they can't do the job. They are good at robbing us and getting people killed in non stop wars.

BillyB you're forgetting, Manny the Oracle of RUA said the Russian build up of Russian military was all an illusion created by the MSM. Manny said Russia was not going to invade Ukraine.

Why would there be any need for diplomacy if Manny said Russia is not going to invade Ukraine?

That means I'm a subject matter expert on all things Russia, Ukraine and UK.

I thought Russia was bluffing too. Only after the war started did I began researching the truth on this. I found out for years Russia went to UN with their grievances. Our media and governments kept us in the dark with the biolabs, regime control they had in Ukraine, and their intentions of moving NATO to Russia which breaks our promise to Russia. We were led to believe Russia had no right to invade Ukraine and Putin was simply a crazy man with a finger on nukes.

If the public had the truth, we could've pressured our politicians to give up on their NATO ambitions, quite engaging in other country's elections and get rid of the biolabs. War could've been prevented. The average Ukrainian doesn't understand what really happened to them. The West used their country to provoke Russia into war.

That's my take on it too.  :thumbsup:

I think we all thought Russia was bluffing and I'm sure Putin never did want to invade Ukraine. War isn't good for anyone. Retrospectively, it looks like the build up wasn't just a bluff but an insurance policy if his concerns were continually ignored by the UN.

None of this leaves Russia in a stronger position but next time, we'll know that Russia doesn't bluff about red lines in the sand and hopefully our politicians listen to their concerns.
