SLL has been treating all news emanating from Ukraine from all sides with ample doses of salt. Here’s one report, from Alex Berenson at alexberenson.com:
You’ll never guess who thinks Ukraine is worth fighting for.
While the West simultaneously whines about Vlad and loads up on Russian natural gas, the good citizens of the UKR are putting their blood where their polling data is.
Fair to say this fight was unexpected. I did have a flash on Wednesday – did the Russians really expect to take Ukraine with 30,000 soldiers, a force smaller than the NYPD? – but I assumed that the consensus had to be right.
