    Yeah. and it's kinda hard to keep your country's economy alive....ESPECIALLY if your country is currently being invaded and the main produces for your country's economy are being destroyed constantly in missile attacks so much so that you have to shut down factories and evacuate just so youll have people who will come back after the war to fix the economy.

    It is difficult to measure it anyway as I would expect Ukraine to be going for a war economy right now. So they will only work and look for the most basic requirements that are needed to keep their military and defensive capabilities running. Which might actually work pretty well, as long as there is a support from western nations. And it doesn't seem likely that this will stop any time soon. I mean the Soviet Union or Britain was not known for the car production in WW2. And both had extensive economic support from the United States. Just saying. As long as Ukraine gets weapons and ammunition, they won't care about their economy. Particularly as Ukraine is not in a situation like Russia where they are pretty much isolated geopolitically.
    Once the war is over however, that's a whole different story alltogether. They will have to rebuild a lot of infrastructure I guess.

    I hear Turkey is pretty healthy to eat.

    Just ask the Byzantines. And then the Seljuk Turks (neither of whom were native to Anatolia).

    Turkey is gonna get something out of it, hungary slovakia and bulgaria are gonna get something out of the planed oil and gas embargo. Meanwhile the representatives of my country, wich is poorer than all of them, are saying we dont need anything in return for crippling our economies. They are selling their people for a chance to get a more comfortable chair in brussels. My hope is they get nuked before me

    Very likely yeah. Which is also funny, because they used to bash Germany for like every shit. Where is the support hmmm Germany! Oh now you send ammunition! Where are the tanks Germany! Hmmm! Where is the artillery! Hmmm! Oh?! You you don't want to hurt your precious economy because 50% of your gas comes from Russia? Buhuhuu!

    In the meantime Orban continues to kiss Putins ass and fucking the EU.

    Crni there is no love in politics. Its all interests, our interests may align sometimes but there can never be love because love is an easily exploitable weakness.

    Funny thing. I am listening to some old Interview from Otto von Habsburg about his first experience with Putin. That was in the last days of the German Democratic Republic when he visited Dresden and staid in a hotel with an American delegation. He had the luck to talk to a few prisoners from one of the worst prison in the GDR, Bautzen. The inmates told him a few Russian guards there have been civil but there was one who was exceptionally terrible. And they all told him that. The name was Vladimir Putin.

    Even if Russia wins the war in Donbas. It'd be such a bitter and hollow victory. To the point calling it a victory is meaningless. What did they win? It wont set the stage for an eventual annexation of all of Ukraine. If anything Ukrainians will keep the fight going and make every day for Russian troops there a living hell. Donbas in the words of Zelensky is pretty much destroyed. Russia would have to invest billions in just repairing the infrastructure of that land and the effort just wouldnt be worth it. especially if now theyre gonna be fighting insurgency from the Ukrainians who still live there. In the end, even if Russia wins. They still lose and Putin's downfall will be short at hand. The cracks are there. a giant chunk of Russians dont support the war

    What have they won? Well let's break it down.

    1: Freedom and Safety from the Tranny Labs in Ukraine that made Covid.
    2: Totally owned Joe Biden and the Democrats.
    3: Cleared out some of their old obsolete equipment to make room from the new and improved.
    4: Brought Europe to the their knees.
    4: Owned Joe Biden and the Democrats, again.
    5: Russia is very strong and Putin is the smartest man around and nothing is going to keep him down.

    @Sn1p3r187 They're going to win control of the Azov sea, some of the best farmland in Ukraine (black soil) and have put Ukraine's hopes of selling off their own natural resources like gas to rest in favor of their own. We'll see how it actually shakes out.

    @Russ O'Phobia.

    March 10 (Reuters) - Meta Platforms (FB.O) will allow Facebook and Instagram users in some countries to call for violence against Russians and Russian soldiers in the context of the Ukraine invasion, according to internal emails seen by Reuters on Thursday, in a temporary change to its hate speech policy.

    ENGLISH - Press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the Prime Minister of Estonia Kaja Kallas and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at Tapa Military Base in Estonia

    Let me also thank the United Kingdom and you, Boris, for leading this NATO multinational battlegroup here at the Tapa base, in Estonia.
    And for doing so for the last five years.
    And also for doubling your contribution over the last few weeks, with more British troops coming to Estonia.
    This really makes a huge difference.
    And demonstrates NATO’s solidarity.
