What I said was: “The good news is no immediate war with Russia. The bad news is Russia takes over.”
We have been at economic war with Russia since the annexation of Crimea & invasion of Ukraine.
Why doesn’t Russia want to offer money for the territory they want? When the US provoked Mexico & took a third of the continent it was forced thru International law, to pay Mexico in the end of it all.
I could say more, but I won’t.
