Another (albeit indirect) comment on Ukraine's ability to "win the war", this time from a source that does seem to subscribe to the "Ukraine good, Russia bad" narrative.

In the spotlight is Germany, whose Herr Scholz doesn't seem to have his heart in this war.

In a situation where some suspect the Nordtream pipeline destruction was perhaps engineered by the USA to keep Germany from allying too closely with Russia (Germany + Russia = unstoppable?) it might be considered not unreasonable (even if unmentionable) that Herr Scholz may be looking to the future and thinking that with allies like Joe Biden, would a rapprochement with Mr Putin really be any worse than Germany's post-war subjugation by / alliance with NATO? Or might it be vastly preferable?

Unherd brings us their analysis.

Either way, with support like that from Germany from NATO members, what are the Ukraine's real chances of flinging back the Russians beyond their 2014 borders?
