For Ukraine, let’s begin with the excellent news. Long-range weapons from the West have lastly arrived, extra on the best way, and the Russian offensive of the previous month appears to be stalling. Now the not-so excellent news. As Volodymyr Zelenskiy lobbies a restore and reconstruction convention in Berlin, his nation is likely to be on borrowed time.

The far-right, whose chief nonetheless owes cash to Russia for a 2017 marketing campaign mortgage, did so properly in France that the president triggered snap legislative elections. Fears that supporting Ukraine may result in World War Three resonate with Marine Le Pen’s voters and the far-left.
