    One of Zelenskyy’s advisors. Doesn’t seem like they are interested in avoiding humiliating Russia to stop the war.

    I'm rewatching Long Way Round and I'm on the Ukraine episode just seeing them go through these cities that are bombed out wrecks now is making me sad

    It probably advances Ukraine’s negotiating position for Russia to believe, or at least believe in the possibility, that they will fight to the last. Ukraine gets to decide the terms under which it is willing to reach a peace to this war. Short of some major change to the dynamic, I’m good with us continuing to support them as much as we can. If Macron is fine looking like Putin’s errand boy because he thinks it will help achieve a peace, that’s fine too. Best to keep all options on the table and all roads to cessation of the war open.

    Will believe it when I see these in Ukraine but would be significant step up for Germany if it plays out. They reprogrammed them into Ukrainian and updated them to sync with Ukrainian artillery net.

    This is really funny for two reasons:

    1) most of the better anti-air systems the Russian navy has are just modified versions of ground based systems anyway, so this just skips a step
    2) the US is doing the opposite and creating a ground based version of their Naval SAM systems called Aegis-Ashore

    Who knows a lot about the history of the Holodomor famine caused by Stalin in Ukraine? Would like to hear more about continuity with those times, how they play into the feelings of Ukrainians living today, how this latest attack fits into that bigger picture etc

    if looking for more depth than a msg board post can provide. There's a chapter dedicated to the Holodomor, though Snyder's focus is broader

    Read “Execution By Hunger”, one of the most fucked up books I’ve ever read, Stalin just starved them on purpose, unfortunately my accompanying course materials are in storage but maybe at colonel_forbin can add a bit as he took the same class where I learned about it
