Михайло Подоляк @Podolyak_M “When someone talks about “diplomatic settlement”, they are actually proposing Ukraine to fulfill Russia’s ultimatum: “give away territories, admit defeat”. Ukrainian people will never agree to this. Therefore, a request: stop offering Ukraine capitulation disguised as “diplomacy” 8:32 PM · Nov 2, 2022 https://twitter.com/Podolyak_M/status/1587875254952673280

What lesson should Western leaders learn from grain “Ottoman diplomacy”? A “blackmailer” with Russian roots is inferior to those who are stronger and know how to clearly state their position. The way to “pacify” the aggressor lies through a reasonable demonstration of force.” 2:47 PM · Nov 2, 2022 https://twitter.com/Podolyak_M/status/1587788465294426112

Russia today – a gambler in casino who has been lucky several times and now believes in his destiny. So it went all-in… and lost. Today, by proposing “negotiations” (recognition of annexation), Putin wants to recoup. Fortunately, Ukrainian Armed Forces are good at treating addictions. 2:44 PM · Nov 2, 2022
