I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT IN MY OPINION PUTIN'S WAR ISN'T GOING TO BE OVER ANYTIME SOON. THAT SAID, IF I WAS A UKRAINIAN I WOULD HAVE SO MUCH PRIDE IN WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH. I, LIKE MOST PEOPLE (I IMAGINE) THOUGHT RUSSIA WAS GOING TO HAVE IT'S WAY WITH UKRAINE AND RATHER QUICKLY, BOY I'VE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY TO BE SO DAMN WRONG. I'M PROUD THAT MY COUNTRY HAS STEPPED UP AND REALLY HELPED THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT WITH A LOT OF INSTRUMENTS OF DISTRICTION. THAT SAID, ALL THE WEAPONS IN THE WORLD AREN'T WORTH A BUCKET OF COLD PISS WITHOUT SOLDIERS TO USE THEM. THE UKRAINIAN MILITARY HAS SHOWN GUTS AND GRIT BEHOND BELIEF FIGHTING FOR THERE COUNTRY. UKRAINE, BE PROUD, STAY STRONG AND KICK PUTIN RIGHT IN HIS ASS!

Great podcast, perhaps the best one the topic of Russian war in Ukraine. Special note to the dedication you put in it. It's a grace-saving coverage by DT after the paper's really shameful take on Brexit.

I'm skeptical that the explosion from a dirty bomb will necessarily be worse than the radiation. Wouldn't an airburst of a warhead containing weapons grade radioactive material over a city or major river have catastrophic impact?

The timidity, cowardice and ignorance of the British journalists in this podcast is deafening. * yes, the Ukrainian guest is so much more aware and educated over the war and history. * She correctly states that "the West" must state to Russia (Putin, ambassadors, Kremlin, Russian people) the exact nature of the devastating response, sans details. This is the only way to deter them from unleashing nuclear weapons. * The devastating response _must_ be military. And it may include equivalent nuclear weapons that Russia has used. Remember, numberless weapons are meant to be a deterrent, but require reliability trust they will land on their targets. The targets have to be ones the Russian power structure truly cares about. * Russia is not a country, it is an empire - the list of the renaissance empires. These journalists should have picked up on Putin's speech and pointed out the absurdity that a colonialist empire is pointing the finger at now dead empires and trying to champion himself as some anti-colonialist. Putin / Russia is _the_ world's only remaining colonialist power. Don't let Putin's lies go unchallenged. * the first journalist: stop calling Donbass, "The Donbass". Enough, with the Russian colonialist terms. It is the Donbass region or Oblast, just as we do not call Sussex, "The Sussex". After 7+ months he should know better by now.

I love the answer on whether Russian elites who don’t support the war feel guilt. The speaker couldn’t formulate it even in the proper words, but Russians don’t have such thing as civil responsibility, and thus even the ones that don’t support the war don’t take the responsibility for what is happening, though they allowed for regime to prosper by doing nothing. Guilt might come only if you feel responsibility. Very unique Russian trait - no responsibility for whatsoever, thus no guilt.

British 1800s engineers developed Donbas for the Czar, for Russia. Why must we in the west pretend that Crimea and Donbas are nonRussian?

Idle optimism. Crimea is going to stay Russian. That should be the starting point. Do a deal, Ukraine-- live on, sans Crimea, sans Donbas ( which British engineers developed for the Czar, for Russia).

Please employ an economic commentator who speaks fluently, who pronounces his -Ts and his -ings, and who does not sound as if his mother and children have all just been murdered And who does not say 80 when he means 18.
