    This is why this war will drag out even further.
    Putin does not want a Prighozin moment again.
    5 high ranking commanders in 5 months have been sacked.
    Most of these guys complained about the front, actually military stuff.
    But I would not discount corruption considering Russia runs on corruption as a cheap dead end fuel.

    You are again a total idiot.
    There is NO peace without Putin agreeing.
    Why does this concept escape you.
    Why would Putin, who has his army on the front foot right now, agree to peace ya fkn tool?
    ...God willing and your Picketwire don't rise...he won't.

    G7 plan to use $282B in frozen russian assets as collateral to loan Ukraine $50B

    Money generated by Russian financial assets frozen in Europe will soon start flowing to Ukraine, giving Kyiv a boost as it struggles to counter an advance by Moscow’s troops. Now, the West is trying to turn that trickle of cash into a flood.

    Finance ministers from the Group of Seven advanced economies are discussing Friday new ways of using the proceeds from some €260 billion ($282 billion) of Russia’s foreign currency reserves that were frozen by Western countries after the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

    The proposal that reportedly has the broadest backing among US and EU officials involves lending as much as $50 billion to Ukraine, using the future windfall profits from Russian assets held in the European Union as collateral.

    G7 finance ministers hope to agree on a way forward that can be signed off when President Joe Biden and other leaders meet for a summit in Italy next month.

    It appears Britain may have convinced the US to let the Ukrainians use Western weapons to fire into Russia where Russian troops were very vulnerable in their attack on Kharkiv..
    Russia was using the border to protect troops. If this type of attacking widens it will spread the Russian air defense very very thin.
    Anyone hoping for any sort of reason for Putin to negotiate you should be hoping Ukraine uses this to great effect.

    ‘Everyone will fight.’ Ukrainian men weigh their options as new draft law comes into effect

    By Daria Tarasova-Markina, Svitlana Vlasova, Maria Kostenko, Olga Voitovych and Ivana Kottasová, CNN



    Published 1:00 AM EDT, Sat May 25, 2024
    Kyiv
    CNN —


    The air at the Ukrainian military recruitment office where a 30-year-old hairdresser is being interviewed is filled with anxiety. The man has no military experience and is unsure whether any of his skills would be useful. At one point, the recruiter jokingly suggests that he might be able to give everyone a nice haircut.

    But the man – who asked to remain anonymous given his pending military status – is there anyway. “The time has come,” he told CNN.
    Under Ukraine’s new mobilization law, which came into effect on May 18, Ukrainian men are now facing a choice: Comply and face the possibility of being sent to the frontlines, or try to evade and risk penalties and condemnation.

    (to be continued by the old Cubster)
