More Optimistic Today

I am more optimistic today than I was yesterday. The Russian soldiers seem already somewhat confused and half-motivated, while the people in Ukraine seem quite determined. Zelenkiy speaks clearly and movingly, while Putin is drifting more and more towards paranoia. Putin's war chest is filled, but probably only for a blitzkrieg. Every day with shattered Russian tanks is expensive. It is said that the bravest Soviet soldiers were the Ukrainians. And even if the Russian army manages to win the tank battles, a long period of guerrilla warfare is probably in store.
