    With my birthday coming up soon, I reflected on the fact I was born just after the
    Second World War ended.
    It has taken a whole generation to move on from the atrocities committed by the Nazi's with what must be the last surviving members of that regime found or now considered deceased.
    The point being, will it take a whole generation once again, to forgive or move on from the destruction of life and country, suffered by the people of Ukraine.
    How will both the Ukrainians and Russian people deal with the aftermath of this terrible ongoing situation, will the perpetrators be held to account?
    Just my thoughts today

    John Boy. I think the world has moved on. Once this is all over, there will be a period of gnashing of teeth and some posturing from politicians, but in the end, the world cannot exist as now without Russia and vice-versa, so there will be much brushing of dirt under carpets just to get things back to something like normality.

    Business as usual?

    "Top Ukrainian officials quit in anti-corruption drive

    . . . Recently, authorities have seen bribery claims, reports of officials buying food at inflated prices and one figure accused of living a lavish lifestyle. . . "

    Dave,
    I watched the interview last night on the BBC "Hardtalk" 23/01/2023
    The interviewer Stephen Sackur spoke quite bluntly to Dmytro Kuleba Foreign Affairs Minister for Ukraine.
    He left no stone unturned and was given the answers to every question he put.
    Well worth you watching it if you can.
    I think the BBC is in no place to judge Ukraine, with the behaviour of some members of the British Goverment have been up to lately!
    There will always be greed in this world, power and money corrupts.
    But appreciate your opinion.
