The lack of a global diplomatic initiative on Ukraine is inexplicable
The Russian the bombardment of Ukraine Not only has it shattered its cities, but it has left notions of a stable, free international order in tatters.
Long in the face of a humanitarian catastrophe, Vladimir Putin’s extreme violence shows, once again, that the rule of law is futile as scorners take over the doomsday. Force will spawn force, so we anxiously watch the trajectory of conflict escalate.
As the fight entered its third week, it took on a terrifying dynamic.
One thing It is clear that the world’s great powers have focused more thought and effort on unleashing death and destruction than they do on formulating peaceful strategies.
Against all odds, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky blocked Mr. Putin’s plan to activate the “Big Lie”.
Moscow’s attempt to repackage a brutal and unwarranted attack on civilians – who do not want to participate in it – as a liberation exercise to liberate being oppressed has backfired.
The world and the Russian people, on whom this grotesque fabrication was filmed, clearly saw it. The heroic spirit of Ukrainian soldiers in the face of overwhelming hardship also highlights the grotesque nature of Putin’s presumptuousness. Among their thousands, Ukrainians are sacrificing their lives for the homeland they hold dear. The two million people forced to flee also demonstrate how vile the prospect of Ukrainians surrendering to Moscow’s bullying is.
The tragedy is that no matter how brave these people are or how good their intentions are, the casualties will only get worse when Putin pushes mercilessly. A leader who has no problem shelling a nuclear plant or bombing a maternity hospital will not worry about the humanitarian consequences.
Global condemnation, or calls for an international war crimes investigation into the illegal invasion, would be less of a problem for him.
We cannot allow ourselves to be indifferent to the sight of new mass graves with the fates of Mariupol, Kharkiv and Kyiv in the line,
In Mariupol, everyone froze when their heat and electricity are cut off. Despite their hardships, they felt grateful in their hearts for the snow – otherwise they would have had no water.
The bloody rounds of negotiations so far have failed to stop the fighting which is an affront to the dead and wounded. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov shrugged off “screams” from the West about the bombing of a children’s hospital.
He will not agree to even a 24-hour ceasefire, but will agree to continue talking.
For all of Ukraine’s bravery, Putin still boasts an insurmountable advantage in firepower as he attacks the country’s cities.
With the scale of suffering so far, and certainty of a disaster of historic proportions unless fighting ceases, the lack of a global diplomatic initiative is inexplicable.
The enormity of what is happening in central Europe is not reflected by the pressure on meaningful peace efforts.
