The urgent need to open access to Odessa's ports because of talk of yet an other real crisis elsewhere in the world about to happen, due to a shortage of grain and oil being on the cards. It is beyond my belief that a retired polititician would suggest Ukraine give up some of it's territory to Russia in the hope of ending the war sooner rather than later. As time goes on and the stockpiles of weaponry are depleted, for everyones sake, this totally unacceptable"Military Operation" in Ukraine will come to end. Russia does have a place in Europe, as was stated in the article quoting Henry Kissinger, but its border should end just where it was before 2014. No mention of the loss of life and the destruction of a nations homelands seems to be of important's...... such is the Politics of the World today.
