In Ukraine, the spiral of violence is turning faster and faster. Moscow has already reported 4,300 deaths. And at some point Putin will have to justify the many dead soldiers at home. The more this number increases, the more trouble he gets, the faster he wants to force the end of the war. The Russians want to be tried in The Hague for using banned weapons.
Ukraine offers young Russian soldiers a new life. There should be 41,000 euros and full amnesty for everyone who lays down their arms.
A tempting offer. The alternative? Families of soldiers who fight and die in Ukraine are “compensated” for the death of their sons with 97.56 euros. The Kremlin doesn’t think her life is worth more than that.
