Day 4 and the valiant resistance to unprovoked aggression continues.

Have to say, very impressed with how Volodymyr Zelenskyy has conducted himself, bearing in mind he was a comedian with no political experience prior to running for office.

Yeah, fear of escalation, I understand that, but leaving them on their own still doesn't sit right.
Is it just kicking the can of an inevitable confrontation further down the road?
Don't know.

If sanctions begin to bite, and there is still plenty of room for manoeuvre here, then hopefully machinations within the Kremlin would see the head of the snake removed.
Time will tell.

Interesting post and brings to the fore somethings I have been thinking of.

1) Politicians end up being comedians.
2) I do not believe they are being left on their own, far from it, however, clearly not backed up with boots on the ground for fear of full escalation. I firmly believe that there is more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye and due to intelligence and secrecy protocols MSM will be left out in the cold. It has been said that a spy satellite can take a picture of you reading a paper in your garden and even what you’re reading. If true the satellite images being fed to the MSM are as clear as an early Edison tv picture. Sanctions? Again anyone can only trumpet their own beliefs and what is being reported, more going on there too.
3) One thing has become apparent is that this has not been a piece of piss for Putin and if it drags on Putin can only lock up so many of the Russian population who will rise up against him as the death toll rises and the sanctions bite. To compound that it will expose the Russian military machines weaknesses for all the world to see.
4) China may well be pivotal in all this but even they wouldn’t want the free world to turn against them. The end of the Second World War in Europe is and will be fresh in people’s minds for another 100 years. No one wants to see that again and if Putin is not stopped he will not stop there.
5) Good time to book a holiday in Cyprus this year.

It's surprising that Putin hasn't used his aerial threat much

Russia preparing for Nuclear Warfare. Here we go. Blaming the West again, saying it’s deterrence measures. This cunt is an absolute nut job.

Does he think Russia would evade a response? Tool.
No one person should be allowed that responsibility.

It is no coincidence that the Russian ambassador has not been expelled.
