Ukraine is not EU member. Without US, EU dares not to challenge Russia. Mind my words: Europe will drastically decline from 2022. It will lose power both politically and economically. We all realized EU is a US pawn. The inflation in EU will last forever after it loses Russia.
When Ukraine falls next would be poland and baltics. As putin said he wants eurasian empire from Lissabon to Vladivostok.
Thats a threat for us. And we destroy that threat. As EU said, no negotiations with Putin. This will be decided on battlefield in Ukraine.
Europe did not bow to Hitler and wont do it now. If history proves one thing, then that dictators like putin should never get any concession.
As i said, Russia can leave Ukraine, replace putin and pay reparations. Its that simple.
