Russia is sure to lose in Ukraine, reckons a Chinese expert on Russia Similarly to USA during WWW II, China is now motivated to support weaker part of conflict just for profit, until war is going. But defeat of Russia would also open Siberia for China, which isn't in USA interests. The memo is simple: agressor will newer win the big war: no matter whether Hitler, Napoleon or Putin. And aggessor is this one who crosses boundary first. Not to say against three times smaller nation. This isn't even fight but a plain bullying. And bulliers are in deep psychological dissadvantage: they can never feel fully right about their intentions.

The problem of Republicans is that they behave more like commies during McCarthy's era by now. Instead of fighting Russia they support it... They don't even remember Reagan's history despite that they refer to it all the time.

Reagan was true conservative, but conservatives without memory aren't even progressive - they're just a plain clowns.

Putin is ready to launch invasion of Nato nations to test West, warns Polish spy boss He's about to lose, so that everything which could mask it is worth the effort..

Don't forget, he's not politician but a mafioso running his country. Putin often calls western "democracies" as "decadent" and they actually are, the Ukrainian conflict illustrates it clearly.

European leaders were unprepared to defend Ukraine which led to Russia's attack, says Donald Tusk

Patrushev at a closed meeting of the Russian Security Council reveals the true Russian motivations for "denazification" of Ukraine.

If we don't conquer Ukraine now... We're losing everything! We will not receive shale gas deposits in the Kharkiv and Donetsk regions. We will not get such" critical raw materials " as lithium, cobalt, scandium, graphite, tantalum, niobium and others... which Ukraine is rich in. We will not get a source of bread and food... where there are huge reserves, surplus bread, but it is difficult to take them immediately, there is still Bandera... We must move at least three million companies from northern hungry Russia to Ukraine.

Germany increases contested gas surcharge Austria, supported by countries like Poland, Hungary and Czechia, says the surcharge obstructs their move away from Russian gas as non-Russian gas imported through Western European LNG terminals becomes more costly due to the added German transit fee.

In the summer of 2022, when Russia stopped supplying gas to Germany, the government authorised large-scale purchases to ensure storage facilities were well-filled before winter. When gas prices dropped, market operator Trading Hub Europe (THE) levied a surcharge on gas flows to recoup the cost. As of July, the charge will be increased by another 34% to €2.50 per MWh, THE announced on Tuesday. The announcement comes amid a prolonged three-way stand-off between Vienna, Berlin and Brussels.
