Russia Donetsk Advance, Promises to Retake Kherson, Ignores US Diplomatic Advances, Talks to Iran

This is a catch up programme as Alexander was under the weather yesterday.

Particularly interesting is the last 20 minutes or so when he discusses the economic/diplomatic situation for Russia, and the G20. He thinks the  G20 is on its last legs, and although the Russians and Chinese speak of the desire for a multi-polar world, in fact it is dividing into two. Putin is spending considerable time in discussions with Iran and Saudi Arabia. All the efforts of ‘negotiation’ regarding Ukraine are coming from the US, not Russia, and Alexander thinks Milley can see that the Ukraine project is running out of steam, but there is division in the White House about the direction in which to move.
