Some of the statements coming out of America over this crisis,engineered entirely by Russia,have had me thinking that,but I think America may be playing some psychological game I don’t quite understand.
Tink and I have a particular interest in this because of our Ukrainian friend on Similar Worlds who I don’t want to see killed( not that we could ever find out) in a needless,pointless war.
But she and I have long agreed that Ukraine would be on it’s own if Putin did the unthinkable and that there can only be one outcome A Russian victory and I think Ukraine would surrender quickly to prevent horrendous loss of life.
But before I came here I saw in the Kyiv Post(it’s published in English-worth a look) a story that provides a chink of light (although Ukraine do not seem to be involved in that chink of link).
I don’t think Putin is invading on Wednesday and there is a meeting under the Vienna formula(I’ve sure I’ve got name wrong) on Tuesday which Russia and Ukraine will both be at.
And troops seem to be leaving Belarus as the exercises there wind down.
But I do think that Washington needs to tone down the hysteria...and Biden could do with accepting Zelenskys invitation to Kyiv.
It would send out a powerful message.
And my Ukrainian friend would take you to task for putting ‘the’ before Ukraine!
