As the wheat prices seem almost completely dependant upon news about this right now which way does the crowd wisdom of TFF think things will go in the Ukraine ?

He could lose face if he doesn’t.

It could be a way of ensuring that he’s listened to by the west, either that or he wants to invade.

If he wants to invade, he’d be better to do it before Ukraine are in NATO than after. Therefore, now could be the time.

It’s a close thing to say whether he will or not. I think he will.

These guys play a long game, it certainly wasn’t planned over a few pints last week.

In terms of economic sanctions, the world still needs Russian (& Ukrainian) grain and oil/gas.

If Europe puts sanctions on him in terms of not importing, the price of any grain or fuel he does export will go up due to world scarcity.

why would he want to invade?.....thats the real question

the uk and usa seem hell bent on taunting him to invade i reckon they'll be disappointed if he doesn't

keep poking an animal with a stick citing ;it'll bite me if i don;t' and eventually it'll bite you anyway
Nothing like a show of united force and a war to increase failing political leader standing in the polls. Both Boris and Biden need something to help out before both are forgotten has beens,peace in Europe has never lasted so long.

Conflicting reports coming out

We'll never know what the truth is. If there is a flash point that causes the whole thing to go off it could be Putin creating a false flag attack to justify his attack, or it could be the CIA making it look like a Putin inspired false flag operation to provoke him into an attack. There's too many random forces operating in the Ukraine at the moment to know for sure exactly who did what under who's orders.

Don't forget the US went into the Vietnam war on the back of the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which is now agreed was a complete fabrication on their part, so they are definitely not above engineering a war that they want.

Complete can of worms.
Best keep out of it.
Vlad won’t live forever. Regimes are best changed from within.
What good will laying waste to the country and killing millions do in the medium term?
What good is a moral victory with millions of refugees pouring into Europe and no gas supplies?
Anybody who seriously thinks we can “win” a military conflict with Vlad in Ukraine needs their head testing.
It’s not “giving in” its picking your battles and realpolitik.
Sadly that’s the reality. Not ideal. Not what I’d like to see. But it is what it is.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
