Makes some good points, Ukraine's economy declining, political collapse, energy supplies failing and 19 ageing nuclear reactors in operate and maintain. What could possibly go wrong?

In a similar vein to Orlov, The Saker puts the latest developments into perspective:

Quote:
One can judge of the seriousness of these developments by the truly Herculean efforts made by the western corporate media not to notice them. Even the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Boris Johnson, who was in Kiev yesterday, was focusing exclusively on the upcoming Eurovision competition, and not on the dramatic developments taking place in the southeast.

In the Ukrainian context, the expression never say never is probably even more important than usual, but I will say that if what I think is happening is really happening, that is, if the Donbass is now de-facto cutting its last ties with the Ukraine and integrating Russia politically and economically, and if the junta in Kiev appears to have been unable to prevent the Nazi volunteers from triggering this crisis with their blockade, then this potentially means to very important things:
1.The Ukronazis have given up on the concept of reconquering Novorussia.
2.The breakup of the rump-Ukraine has begun


Good to see that clueless buffoon of a Foreign Secretary has demonstrated where the priorities lie Rolling Eyes

The Saker: The Donbass is breaking away from an agonizing Ukraine

Just watched The Babushkas of Chernobyl. Excellent: sad, entertaining, dystopic, funny at times, unreal sometimes; maybe a glimpse of the future.
