After Putin Poses Nuclear Threat: Ukraine and Russia Set to Hold Negotiations

By Aharon Bendavid. Ukrainian foreign minister calls Russia’s willingness to hold talks ‘a victory for Ukraine’.

Vladimir Putin has ordered that Russia’s nuclear deterrence forces are put on high alert. The Russian president said aggressive statements by NATO leaders and economic sanctions against Moscow were behind the decision. Although that seems like an ominous statement, Russia maintains an arsenal of tactical nukes which are small devices and not meant for large destructions. These devices, while extremely lethal are meant to target small areas and locations and not meant for total nuclear war and Mutually Assured Destruction. Nevertheless, they pose a significant threat to Ukraine and elevation of the use of Russian weapons not seen before in the conflict… However,

Ukraine and Russia are also set to hold negotiations at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, according to the office of President Zelensky.

Russia’s willingness to hold talks after encountering serious resistance to its invasion is a “victory for Ukraine,” Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said during a briefing Sunday.

“I think that the fact that Russia is ready to hold talks — without any preconditions, without any ultimatums, without any demands addressed to Ukraine — is already a victory for Ukraine,” Kuleba said.

“After they suffered losses and realize that their plan doesn’t go as it was actually planned and designed and the blitzkrieg failed, Russia started speaking with the language of ultimatums saying that they are ready to talk with Ukraine with preconditions that have to be met before talks begin,” he said

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s office confirmed this morning that a delegation has agreed to meet with Russian officials at the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, near the Pripyat River.

Zelensky said earlier this week said that his government would not attend negotiations in Belarus, because it is a close ally of Moscow’s where thousands of Russian troops massed in the lead-up to the invasion last week.

Ukrainian officials said Sunday that their forces had taken back control of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, after fighting heated street battles with the Russian troops.

  1. The Hofetz Chaim, around 1933,said that he thought that the birth pangs of the Messiah were near. Rabbi Chaim Kanefsky recently stated that the Messiah had been born in Yisrael.

    Since 1948, Israel has grown in area and population at a rapid rate. From Europe, following the Holocaust, Jews from Eastern Europe and in Europe in general flocked to Eretz Yisrael.

    Jews came to Yisrael from all parts of the Middle East. I’ll skip other collaborating evidence. My point is that indeed I believe the Messiah is very, very near. With Russia moving into the Ukraine and an ally of Syria–the threat to Yisrael’s existence is clear. Nuclear weapons have been threaten by the mad man Putin.

    I’m not a very religious person, though my mom and grandmother were. I’ll quote from the Tehelllin: “HE that keepth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” Watch out world and Russia in particular, no armies or nuclear weapons are a match for HaShem !!

    A goy,
    Gerry Mullen

    PS: Suggest all Jews do More Talmud T_rah (MTT). More Davvening (MD) and More Chessed (MC)–a great rabbi who lived in Lakewood, N.J. always said to me that even as a goy (of low character which I am) I can say such to Jews—may HaShem bless the rabbi’s memory..

    • You say to be a “goy” (gentile) but you are DEFINITELY not of low character. Gd bless you. Keep observing the 7 Noahide laws and standing up for Religion in our Immoral world and the Creator Of Heaven and Earth will stand over you to protect you! I envy your righteousness.
      With Sincerity,

  2. Putin went in to destroy , American bio labs ! Ukraine was taken over by the cabal in 2014 . Biden regime and gang are stealing money from the people. Putin may be after the cabal . The cabal are Nazis . They always call us Nazis , they use this tactic from Marxism ideology . They had a color revolution , done by , none other than Soros . China may have taken Australia already . I hope everyone has a concealed carry permit , firearms and ammo . Biden regime is panicking . You will see propaganda everywhere . None of it is true .

  3. Maybe he is a Novhardoker, and wants to refer to himself as a gornisht?
    While it takes much time and effort to become a true gornisht, one has to start somewhere.

    • I don’t like to brag about myself in public, but with all due respect, I happen to be one of the world’s leading gornishts, and it didn’t take much time and effort on my part to reach that unlofty level. And let me be clear, I am not a Novhardoker. Maybe it’s a gift from above, or maybe I just happen to have a knack for being a gornisht, nevertheless, it came pretty easy to me. So, to all the aspiring gornishts out there, don’t give up, you can reach a significantly low level of gornishkeit with just a little bit of effort. Maybe you won’t reach MY level of gornishkeit, but you’ll make it quite low down the ladder, with just a tad bit of effort.
      Good luck.
      Hope to meet all you aspiring gornishts one day at the annual Gornisht convention. I’m usually the keynote speaker there, and I’m usually sitting up front at the dais. Don’t forget to stop by, and say hello to me.
