The missiles hitting Ukrainian cities have the effect of inciting the hatred of Ukrainians of Russians and the drones hitting Moscow is inciting Russians to have more hatred for Ukrainians and inadvertently make them believe that a stronger Ukraine near their borders would be a source of insecurity for them.
The logic for a long drawn out war causing untold human suffering is laid. Now hundreds of thousands of the members present generation who should enjoy a life of peace and prosperity in Russia and Ukraine will now be buried before their 30th birthday. Is the land more precious than life? Why can’t they be one and save their youth form the peril and the cost?
Sanity is knocking on the door to be heard in Russia and Ukraine. Will they listen? Time will tell.
