Well they would need to have a free choice in that case, which might be difficult to arrange.

 Big area & long porous “ border” to lock down. There would be literally millions of ethnic Russians moving east to west I reckon.Putin would let them go as “ traitors” then repopulate with “ loyal “ Russians.

Yeah ok Mr Garnett! I’m guessing you’re upwards of 83 correct ? 

Which cultures are more ‘valuable’ than others by the way ? 

Are the lesser cultures acceptable when they’re fighting wars for you, or saving your life in hospital wards ? Just asking like…

Well since you asked, I’ll give you a clue, the culture than invented Modern Science , Medicine , Industry, Banking, Steam Power, Metal Ships, Submarines, Railways, Steels & Alloys, , Computers, Jet Engines, Motor Engines & Vehicles, Internet, Spacecraft, Tv, Radio, Radar, Satellites, Orbiting Telescopes, Nuclear Power, Electrical Power, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, Aircraft, Democracy, Classical Music ; I could go on.

Or you could go with other cultures than invented Reggae, Tequila, Curry, Korans or Boomerang or useful Ancient stuff but never progressed. 

Of course I would always prefer to judge individuals based on merit not origin.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Pining away for the good old days when Russia mattered, and the world shook in fear of the Red Menace. Now Russia is nothing more than a gas station in a world switching to EVs. Now not only can't Russia defeat a country next door who lacked modern weapons, and had an army a fraction of it's size. Western military officials are even talking about Ukraine actually winning, that's how bad Russia's army is performing.

For me you can live however you like, as long as you respect other countries and let those people also live independently and however they like.
But that is asking to much from you.

In interests of impartiality and to ( try) to understand “ the left” , I often read various Guardian articles…. Until that practice made me feel sick to my stomach ….so biased / unbalanced ultra liberal left , they inhabit a parallel universe …..where all cultures are equally accomplished & valuable  and black/ brown can do no wrong…. remind me again which culture invented EVERYTHING of value in the Modern World ? 

real leftists, unlike the Guardian, operate with facts.  

All cultures are equally developed, for their level of development of society.  

Everyone can make mistakes, regardless of skin color.  

If by everything valuable you mean what has appeared in the last 300 years (the industrial revolution), then this is an understandable consequence of colonial robbery and slave-owning capital accumulation.

And when it’s a 100% production fall without western oilfield services ? 3x zero being …..zero 🤣😎👍

somehow oil was produced before the arrival of Halliburton and Schlumberger.  

Complex layers will not be able to work, but it will definitely not fall to zero.

So-called "sanctions"  again Russia did they approved by UN?

Yes from Russia's southern fields, the ones that are practically played out. The North Caucasus fields, you know the ones Germany tried to get during WWII, have little left in known reserves. The Urals-Volga fields are in the diminishing returns phase. 

The vast majority of current Russian production comes from the West Siberian fields. Russia has huge reserves, but they have already gotten to the easy supply decades ago. Normal for any country, you always reach for the low hanging fruit first. 

Russia has already lost a million barrels a day in April. The industry now expects Russia to lose another two million in May. These are huge losses and it's just the beginning: 

The oil market could lose as much as 2 million barrels a day of Russian crude in coming weeks, when the hit from existing sanctions becomes apparent, BP's chief executive has said. Bernard Looney predicted the coming drop-off in comments to Reuters after the company's quarterly results on Tuesday, as the EU prepares fresh measures on Russian oil. "There is one million barrels a day of Russian crude off the system today... We think that will probably double this month, when existing sanctions come into effect," Looney told Reuters ... "From the long term, something far more serious is going on — and that is what's going on in Russia," the founder of The Energy Word told Yahoo Finance Live. 'And not only the bans that are likely coming from Europe that they seem to have a very long-term interest in making stick. The energy companies — Exxon, Total, BP — leaving Russia, stranding assets in Russia," he said. Dicker noted that energy infrastructure in Russia has been dependent on Western energy companies getting the oil out of the ground, and it is now missing that extraction. "That's going to be a long-term, systemic problem with production in Russia, which may ultimately lead to three million barrels a day of oil coming off the market, from the Russian markets.

Expect as much as 2 million barrels a day of Russian crude to vanish from the market in May as sanctions kick in, BP boss says (msn.com)

The "three million barrels" he is talking about in the last sentence is from the lack of new wells being drilled and the atrophy of the existing system. That's a systematic loss that will play out over this year and next. 

Keep in mind, the loses to date are mostly from self-sanctioning corporations, and a few countries imposing import bans. It's not hard to see why Russia will need to start shutting down wells as early as this month. Worse yet is the long term ramifications of what happens when the war is over. Just how much of the lost production never comes back because the demand has permanently moved on?

The black gold is the same as cocaine. Ban it and shame it but people still crave it and will begrudgingly pay a premium for it and find a way to produce it. Supply and demand will balance the scales.
imo, this war shouldn’t last more than another 3 months. Russia is already starting to annex parts of Ukraine and that language map I posted looks suspiciously like the Russian advances and likely Putin’s desired end result. If Russia wanted all of Ukraine NOW they wouldn’t be annexing it in pieces. And if Russia wanted to they could level Kyiv from afar but haven’t done so yet. Why? Maybe it’s a scheduling conflict with all the visiting celebrities and politicians? Or Chuck Norris’ location needs to be determined because no-one throws a bomb near Chuck and doesn’t limp away. imo Russia will take the South and Donbass, leave Odessa alone and then start hammering Kyiv to force peace talks.

You are certainly more right than wrong, but I'm not sure it will all come back. If Russia has to shut the Siberian well fields, it could take decades for production to return to pre invasion levels (last time it took almost 30 years). When you can't fulfill demand for an extended period, a certain level will not come back. Whether they have found acceptable replacements for whatever reasons, or they just need less because of changes in the economy. Russia accelerating the greening of EU energy use wasn't in their long term interest either.

A large part of that, if it was Russia's desire, is because Kyiv is now outside of tube artillery range. Most of the destruction done to cities is done by tube artillery, it's just so much cheaper than bombs or rockets. Never mind it's probably not in Russian military best interest to use up the rest of their PGMs or wear out their air power trying to destroy buildings in a very large city.

It has been reported that some of Russias top Generals are looking to rid the Kremlin of the lunatic that calls himself president. 

 

"Rumours are swirling in Moscow that a number of former generals and KGB officials are preparing to oust Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and plan to end the war in Ukraine, which is increasingly seen across Russia as a strategic mistake and, above all, an economic disaster.

The top of Putin’s former employer – the Russian security service FSB – is said to be so frustrated about the lack of military progress in Ukraine that it has reached out to a number of generals and former army officials, according to various analysts and local media reports.

In particular a group called the ‘Siloviki’ – which comprises of former FSB officers who are active in Russian politics – is said to be pushing hard to replace Putin, together with former officers from the GRU, KGB and FSO, other Russian intelligence units."

To depose Putin is an admission that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a failure, the West is right, Russia was wrong and cannot handle the pressure from the West. Seriously?

I know that this is not music to your ears but It is no big secret that the Russians have failed in all their objectives, the have shown to the world that they are very poorly trained, lack the determination that the Ukrainians possess, losing generals to them is like us losing coins down back of of sofa, they also lack self discipline and it would seem that the only thing that they excel in is mass murder and etc etc. 

It would make great sense to get rid of the liability that resides in the Kremlin, "seriously!"

Why not call for Russia to leave the Ukraine and end the suffering?

Too late to roll back. Big War in Europe already started.

First targets are reached.

Unblocked Crimea land corridor.

Unblocked water sources to Crimea (it's historical problem with water in this region).

Cut off Kiev's clowns from Black Sea shore. (In progress)

It makes great sense to the West and sleepy Joe would probably get his first erection in decades without pharmaceutical assistance but it is not realistic. I am sure this war has more internal support than Afghanistan, Syria etc had inside Russia. We are not seeing the Russian propaganda and effects inside Russia so believing Western claims that Putin’s homeboys are on the verge of revolt based on rumors propagated by MSM is wishful thinking. Suppose the US invaded Canada or Mexico. Can you imagine the US deposing their war time leader because things aren’t going as well as the enemy thinks they should be?

Too late to roll back in Ukraine. But advancing into Europe? Russia’s military isn’t strong enough to take & hold Europe and it would be borderline suicidal. Winnie the Pooh would have to either join Russia against the West or abandon Russia. Russia cannot risk losing the support of China, it’s biggest ally, and China cannot sit on the fence if Europe is attacked. MSM might portray Putin as a lunatic but no-one says he is stupid.

Russia is not the US, Russia is a dictatorship. But I am getting it now why you are so pro Russia, it would seem that because you don't like the US that you feel that your allegience should be aligned to Russia, not to put a too finer point on it, it gets boring. 

But if you think that the Ukrainians are just going to lie down and let Putin tickle their tummies you are going to be sorely disappointed. Whether Russia takes part of Ukraine it will not end there the Ukrainians will never surrender to a murderous regime such as Russia, spin this out as much as you like but Putin is on borrowed time and it may be that secretly you know this and if you don't...well you should, you have been told so many times. 

Wake up and smell the coffee.☕

Russia already gave Ukraine a belly rub, 8 years ago in Crimea. I will only be disappointed if peace talks don’t come to fruition for Ukraine’s sake because, all bluster aside, the longer this goes on the less chance Ukraine has of coming out of this war as a country not completely under Russian control. The Russian foreign minister stated that their goals do not include forcing Zelenskky out of power/regime change. If Donbas falls we might see progress on the peace front and, imo, peace is a win for Ukraine.
