    Even if they "win" they lose, they can't hold the territory, their supply lines going in will be beastfucked, and it'll be such a complete drain of resources you'd think it was a federal contractor.

    Long as Ukraine wants to fight, they win. Longer it gets drawn out, the worse it gets for the invaders. MAYBE in summer when the offroads bake to a hard surface it could change. But would Russia have the resources, well, have the viable resources, to make the most of it? Ammo, armor, and supplies? Latest batch of fodder could be ready to go. But we've seen how well they've worked out. The Russian Soldier Reclamation Project, powered by Babushka.

    That's what it'll come down to. If the Ukraine gives up. It's been costly for both sides. It will get worse. But it's most costly for Russia. More it drags, the more costly for a glorified gas station. With the west supplying Ukraine, and (theoretically) helping them rebuild afterwards, they got a lot to fight for. Besides their lives.

    Eh, Germany hate in this situation is kinda deserved, they really act in selfish way. Im totally cool with them protecting their economy and such but they really push "btw we were neutral dont be mad at us russia" a little too hard.

    All the measures Putler has taken to prop up the value of the ruble WILL fail sooner or later. It isn’t an 'if', it is a matter of "when".
    So, when do you think they will fail given persistent account surplus? 2030? 2050?

    Russia is suffering inflation right now at 2% a week. That is unsustainable
    A lot of price increases expected sharp rouble devaluation. With ruble strengthening they are starting to come back down. So Russia will not have to "sustain" this level for long.

    And have you checked European inflation trajectory?

    https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/docume...b-21c83f5319e5

    Euro area annual inflation is expected to be 7.5% in March 2022, up from 5.9% in February according to a flash estimate from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
    Looking at the main components of euro area inflation, energy is expected to have the highest annual rate in March (44.7%, compared with 32.0% in February), followed by food, alcohol & tobacco (5.0%, compared with 4.2% in February), non-energy industrial goods (3.4%, compared with 3.1% in February) and services (2.7%, compared with 2.5% in February)


    Energy prices will keep going through economy slowly driving everything else up; and there is no end in sight for energy crisis.

    It's quite sad to me that West cheerfully walks toward destruction of an economic system they painstakingly built in last three decades over moral panic.

    But then maybe you could see entire cause of conflict as fight of "morality over reality".

    I get it, the fact your economy is in such shit state, so your only option is to go off topic.

    Hey would you like us to lift some sanctions? No probably not, would actually make things much worse for you

    The russian economy will collapse. And the country will become a dirt poor pariah state for decades to come. Knowing this puts a smile on my face.

    You would think openly rooting for Russia's genocidal war of aggression to escalate even further in the face of Ukrainian resistance and aid from the West would do it, but apparently not. Thank god he didn't do something truly terrible and permabannable, like post informative articles without commenting on them.

    US already dropped fertilizer sanctions - re-classified them as "essential goods".

    As reality sets in more might follow.

    Hey man, the conflict can end at any time! Ukraine simply has to surrender!
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    This is absolute nonsense. The West was content to sit back and ignore Russia's crimes in Syria and Crimea in return for cheap fossil fuel, it was Russia that decided to see how far it could push its luck by committing genocide on the Ukrainian people. It is Russia and no-one else that has thrown this all away.

    When Russian troops are busy murdering civilians, raping children, kidnapping citizens, shelling homes, schools and hospitals it is absolutely a fight of morality.

    And whilst you appear to believe the lies that is being fed to you it will not change the fact that Russia will continue to be isolated from the global financial systems and markets and as a consequence Russia's economy will suffer.
