At Nato meetings, where Finland and Sweden were to be invited to join NATO, it was a bit worrisome because all nations in NATO had to agree. Turkey had been saying they would not ok the deal. Now Turkey is on board.

Putins move in Ukraine kind of got Sweden and Finland off the fence. Now, Russia will be squeezed ever further. They are going to be sanctioned more. They have defaulted on loans, many western companies have pulled out of Russia, their economics are worst then the West.
It would go a long way if Putin, withdrew his forces to Russia. Let the UN find out if Ukrainians want to be Russian or not.

It does seem that Putin’s invasion ( Special Military Operation ) of Ukraine got Sweden and Finland off the fence.

Heard, that the sanctions put on Russia has not reduced their income, because the countries that support or are not against Russia, still buying oil and other commodities that the west is not buying.

The sanctions are not working as well as they had hoped.

No, if you look at it objectively the sanctions are working, just on the wrong countries, mostly those that imposed them in the first instance, that was a brilliant move.

I have to agree with KayGee on this one..

The price of a barrel of oil skyrocketed from $60.00 to $120.00..

It seems that the Putin. Is making a fortune ....and it's helping him finance the war.

Brilliant move.

Russia is not the only oil producer in the world. The price of oil is risen because of the war and uncertainty.
US, Saudi, and other oil producers are selling for the same price.

The good guys are also not oil companies or producers that could if they wanted lower the prices. OR the US and other countries could lower the demand.

Right now, the only losers are Russia and Ukraine. The rest of are just following the rest of the world.

Certainly, glad many on forums are not world leaders, too many are selfish kids.

And, who is that?

How would you lower the demand of consumers... already many are strapped for cash
and are consolidating their trips.

Biden wants the fossil fuels to go away....and is doing everything he can to lower the USA
to a level of a third-world country. He hasn't far to go.

Putin is just as dumb as Hitler was. NATO countries are no real threat to Russia. But Russia is the one that is a threat to other countries. We had 3 unstable world leaders. Now fortunately, we have reduced that number to only 2.

I don't target users, just comments. Thank you?


Fossil fuels will be with us for at least another century, too many things are made from petroleum.

People in the past did not waste things like they do now. One less drive, or walk, or bicycle might help.

It seems that the Russian army do not retreat from anywhere, they make a gesture of good will and leave .
