Western allies meet regularly to game out potential framework for Ukraine ceasefire as war hits 100th day

Staring down the prospect of an extended stalemate in Ukraine, the US and its allies are placing a renewed emphasis on the need for a negotiated settlement to end the war as the conflict grinds into its 100th day with no clear victory in sight for either side.

Spanish Civil War to which some viewers have a connection.

I’ve thought of the Spanish civil war from the very first moment. It was nothing but a proxy war taking place in the periphery of Europe, in very turbulent times -the late 30’s- between the proponents of a new and an old world order. In the end, no one gave a shit about Spain in itself.

Very good report.
Russia will not be keen to rush into negotiations and cease fire. I believe they will look for signs of Ukranian government collapse or military take over, and permit that in the within time. Internal refreshing change in Ukranian discussion and government could be more re-assuring than vague promises over the table from a dishonourable cabal.

If one looks into-Map detailing the largely untapped gas and oil fields in Ukraine (2015)-one can easily ascertain Russia’s geographical goals and the reason for Poland’s animation. Again I ask, why does The Duran not at least discuss, in any way commensurate with it’s importance, the oil and gas related underpinnings of this conflict? Indeed, in almost all conflicts of this nature.

Well I would hazard a guess that Russia, after witnessing the theft of resources by the US in middle eastern countries, think Syria, USA’s latest acquisition, that Russia is making sure that at least part of Ukraine gets to keep their god given sovereign source of wealth. I clearly recall the Biden’s involvement in Burisma Holdings which was set up to blatantly steal the gas resources of eastern Ukraine, except for those pesky east Ukrainians who fought to keep it. The Ukrainian take over by the US is part of the process to take destabilize Russia and eventually take over… Read more »

This action into Ukraine by Russia was, in part, precipitated by evidence that powerful primarily outside influences were in the process of appropriating these resources. Western resource extraction companies had been given licenses to develop much of these resources in areas which used to be the USSR. Eastern Ukraine is culturally Russia and now politically Russia. I do not think Russia is at all sympathetic with western Ukraine and would want to protect these resources for western Ukraine. These same powerful influences are desirous of natural resources throughout the rest of geographical Russia as well. That is why they want… Read more »

Isn’t Israel stealing Syrian oil in the occupied Golan Heights?

Russia has no need for Ukraine gas and oil, and this war, started by the US, is not about Ukraine gas and oil but about creating a pretext for the West to start a war against Russia. There are no oil and gas related underpinnings of this conflict.

Gainingcontrol of Russian natural resources is a huge instigator for the war against Russia. Consider how much power Russia has over Europe because of it’s resources. Europe is in economic trouble now because Russian resources are not as available as they were. You say Russia has no need for Ukrainian gas and oil but the rest of Europe certainly has a need for Russian snd Ukrainian resources.This is the reason the sanctions are backfiring. Eastern Ukrainian gas and oil are now Russian because Eastern Ukraine is now Russia.

It’s a fact that Russia has profited from its sale of its oil to the EU, and the EU has profited from being able to buy cheap oil from Russia, and both sides were happy with that arrangement until 2014, when Victoria Nudelman destroyed this mutually beneficial trade agreement between Russia and the EU. Europe is not in trouble now because Russian resources are not as available now. They still are, and would be if Ursula von der Crazy had not made them unavailable by sanctioning Russia and Russian oil.

Unlike USA,s continuous “Failures” in coups & downright theft of foreign countries resources & currencies, Russia “Will” succeed why because there intent is positive, they don,t deal in lies, they are jew wise to the evil satanic intent of the tamudic zionists that have totally saturated Usa with insidious motives, the ultimate revenge is Gods the seeds of death they sow has come to the Zionists, do “They” think what they did to the Romanov Csars of Russia, will go unpunished ?

The Bolsheviks were mostly (90%) Russian everyday people of the Orthodox faith. Only 8-10 % were Jews. Czarist Russia was the last feudal holdout in Europe and the division of wealth was pronounced. The Russian peasant was extremely poor. That is why the Bolshevik movement became so popular so quickly. What the Bolsheviks actually evolved into was something I have very little affinity for.

I think “You” better go back to a little “More” Research the Bolsheviks were basicaly like 90% Jewish (Opposite) of which you state, I think you have got it back to front. Lol
Just Look at the names of those who killed the Romanovs, the “WHOLE” bolshevik, movement was sponsored by Jew Jacob shiff!

Something in between: they were somewhat more than 10%, way less than 90%. Anyway, Stalin managed to kill almost all bolshevik jews so, by your own calculations, the Soviet Union should have become a marvellous place then…

Those fighting in the streets may have been 8 to 10% Jews, but the entire revolutionary ideology, the creation of the revolution was led entirely, or almost entirely, by Jews, more like 90%.

What a commentary. Best ever. Let’s see Brandon and BoJo bully and bluff their way out of this one. Don’t know about BoJo but I’m certainly seeing impeachment in Brandon’s future. At least we can hope.

Evidently Mercouris has forgotten the lessons of the Minsk accords and agreements, which Ukraine signed but refused to honor. A ceasefire gives Ukraine a chance to re-arm and start another NATO offensive in better shape.
Much better to continue fighting until the whole South Coast and Odessa are taken and the ethnic Russian part of Ukraine is consolidated into either a separate nation or a confederation. This will cost Russia much blood and treasure, but as Putin noted, he should have done this in 2014 after the Maidan Coup installed American puppet governments.

I find highly inconsiderate the barking of dogs during a video presentation. Sadly, two important commentators, the eminent Noam Chomsky and Alexander Mercouris allow this offensive disturbance. Others may suffer it, but I hit the stop button at the first bark. Goodbye!

Many kinds of maps…

Biden blames Putin. Putin blames Collective West. Ukraine missile promise excludes Crimea. Update 1

EU happy to buy India’s oil. Severodonetsk fog of war. Putin ‘crunching them like nuts.’ Update 1
