They always go for civilian targets, the more casualties the merrier. The shopping mall attack is not an outlier.

back then, but even now, would be a way more humane solution. Especially with the level of war fever in broader russian society, they are basically at "August 1945 Japan" pitch, where you save lives of others (even those citizens of aggressor nation) by simply nuking a couple of places, a...Jump to post

Macron is threading a middle ground to keep Putin talking. I'm sure he expected such an answer from Ukraine. Even if land is surrendered in practice, it won't be on a treaty.

Thanks for responding. I have an out of date vax (not boosted in the winter) so I believe I’m basically considered un vaxed now.
