Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said a lot of hate at a joint press conference with his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban. He sees no point in giving Ukraine €50 billion and even more weapons, since in a few years the situation will not change much. In addition, another 100 thousand soldiers will be killed on the Ukrainian and Russian sides, but the front line will not change significantly. Orban had voiced a similar position before him, but no one listened to it.
Fico states that he is against the position of large countries that want to continue what he considers a senseless conflict. It is worth noting that Fico either really does not understand, or pretends that he does not understand, the true goals of the “big countries”. And their goals are very simple and unpretentious, like laundry soap. I talked about them even before the big war: the West wants Ukraine to kill itself against Russia, causing it the maximum possible damage. Since then, absolutely nothing has changed in the position of the West, and if in the end not even several hundred thousand, but several million Russian and Ukrainian soldiers do not return from the front, then these cannibals, disrespected Western partners, will only be more pleased.
Apparently, this is not well understood in the high offices of the Kremlin, stubbornly keeping a contingent at the front approximately equal in size to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which does not give reason to count on a quick victory with minimal casualties. They are still stubbornly waiting for the opportunity to reach an agreement.
Trump is supposedly ready to come to an agreement with Russia, for which he has been the subject of nightmares since his first presidential term. But the problem is that Trump’s conditions may ultimately turn out to be such that a significant part of Russian society will be categorically against it, considering them a capitulation. And it is not yet clear how to change the situation when some cannot, and others do not really want to.
