Ukraine’s Zelensky: We Are Ready for Counteroffensive - WSJ

ODESA, Ukraine—Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was now ready to launch a long-awaited counteroffensive but tempered a forecast of success with a warning: It could take some time and come at a heavy cost.

“We strongly believe that we will succeed,” Zelensky said in an interview in this southern port city as his country’s military girded for what could be one of the war’s most consequential phases as it aims to retake territory occupied by Russia


I stand with Ukraine. Yes, we have a ruling class that has glommed onto this cause as a way to advance the globalist agenda. Yes, Soros is active in Ukraine. Yes, the neo-cons never met a war they didn't like, and yes, they want to overthrow Putin, not just get the Russians out of Ukraine. All of these are not reasons to throw the Ukrainians to the wolves. Trump would probably do just that, and that's a reason in my book not to support him. DeSantis seems more reasonable on this issue. RFK Jr. is not so reasonable; a strike against him. Biden might be our next president. Bad for just about everything, but probably good for Ukraine. I hope the coming counter-offensive lives up to my hopes.
