Russian optimism grows

Hungary demands the return of their historical lands locked inside Ukraine, if Ukraine disintegrates.

Ukraine.  No one wants to take the place of Zaluzhny head of armed forces.  Zelensky’s term ends at end of March so will he extend martial law?

Zaluzhny wants the war to end, and everyone else.  Only Zelensky wants the war to go on.  18-60 years old are to register for military service.

Russia having no problem getting parallel imports.  Russian economy growing rapidly.  Approaching 4th largest in world.
