Russia and Ukraine should talk rather than fight with each other. From the beginning, Russia didn’t realize that Ukraine will fight so fiercely back. But that is because of the support from the western countries.
President Zelensky used to hesitate and think of compromising. But both media and western countries thought he would not be more respected than fighting to death. To die, you will become a hero or a pile of ash. To compromise, people will say why didn’t you compromise early?
Outsiders couldn’t understand the pain the Ukrainian people are suffering and thought their help of escaping from their own country might be a good idea. Or send some weapons to that country so that they can fight with Russia. But what they got is the bombing of these weapons and bombing of more facilities and people.
So far, both sides suffered big losses and loss of lives. Russians and Ukrainians who used to be brothers and sisters, now became enemies.
The longer the war lasts, the more suffering the people will inflict. No better solution than talk.
I suggest Zelensky talk with Putin. Both should lower yourself and talk with each other. The west will not support the war to go on forever. The economic situation is not good. Financial situation is not good. Food situation is not good. Energy is not good enough.
Man must think why you should fight. Why people or brothers fight each other? In particular Ukraine, please think what is the best for yourself. To continue to fight or to stop fighting?
Give peace a chance. Stop firing and stop fighting. It is better to stop at the end of the year instead of another year or another year.
