Ukraine/Russia peace talks “didn’t make sense”

Thoughts

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the truth, for once:

  1. He claimed peace talks “didn’t make sense” (ABC News Australia).

  2. Russia, Ukraine, and Turkey agreed in talks to resume Black Sea grain exports blocked by Russia (Sydney Morning Herald).

  3. Russian missiles attack a grain export ship in Odesa. Russia and their paid social media bots denied the attack, then they rolled back. Really. (Moscow Times).

Don’t forget: this war would be over today if the Kremlin wanted. Hypocrisy is but one of their crimes against their Slavic brethren.

As a reminder, Ukraine’s United24 site lets you donate for defence, demining, medical aid, and reconstruction. You can also set up an automatic monthly donation.

We need to keep talking about this. Bad people win in darkness. 🌻
