      They never change. I mean, they also denied thousands of Jews access to cross Switerzland in order to flee Nazi Germany in WWII.

      Staying neutral now - especially by banning other countries to help - is like siding with the imperial and fascist aggressor.

        I think the argument 'staying neutral = supporting one side indirectly' has become a bit stale in the meantime...

          I want to know how many hundred billions they‘re hiding for Russian oligarchs.



          Time for Brussels to cancel EFTA, close their borders and establish a no-fly zone to ensure true neutrality in this war.

            It doesn´t matter because it´s the truth.

            They are not only "indirectly" helping the cause of a fascist and imperial war.. they are also DIRECTLY preventing several other countries from supplying aid.

            The argument is - that Switzerland doesn´t remain "neutral" in that case.

            • Russia launched fresh waves of missile attacks across Ukraine on Saturday, killing at least 14 people in a strike on an apartment block in the eastern city of Dnipro.

              A number of other cities, including Kyiv, Kharkiv and Odesa, were also hit.

              Much of Ukraine is now under an emergency blackout after missiles hit power infrastructure in several cities.

              • In addition to providing 14 Challenger 2 tanks, the U.K. will be providing 30 AS90s (which are apparently large, self-propelled guns) and yesterday, the Daily Mirror reported that we are going to also be providing 4 Apache AH-64E helicopters.

                All of this heavy battle machinery will no doubt do great things for Ukraine’s war effort but they need so much more from other western countries.

                Proud of my country for doing all it can to help Ukraine, there are others that respectfully need to up their support - countries like Germany and France are major players and should be doing more.

                • Awesome and nice fakes. Please find a source of those so-colled nazis from Azov.

                  And, seriously, do we have moderators here? Again, this garbage from trolls or those who do consume russian propaganda? They have red russian nepropaganda with fake pictures since 2014 and can not let it go or simply check facts and reality??? Or I should see this nazi conspiracy about Mariupol defenders? After they ve been captured in russia for many months and RUSSIA GIVES NO ANY NAZI PICTURE OF AZOV PRISSIONERS.

                          • I feel embarrassed by my country's behaviour in regards to the whole sending tanks situation. Europe, hate the government, not the people.

                            Also, I agree with Mainshow and his opinion on Switzerland.

                            • Reports out today that both Germany and the USA plan to follow the UK’s lead and send tanks to Ukraine with the USA sending 30 and Germany sending 14.

                              Taken together with the 14 that the U.K. provided and the 14 that Poland I think are providing, that’s almost 75 tanks (I think Ukraine estimate they need around 200).

                                Yep...it's confirmed the US will send 31.





                                Is there a reason these announcements came this week?

                                  Well according to political commentators, the UK got the ball rolling to induce pressure on Germany and the US - but Germany didn't want to send tanks without the political cover of the US doing the same. I expect that the announcement just follows the recent summit of foreign secretaries, but really the announcement comes in the nick of time - so pleased for Ukraine and these countries need to be ready to send more.

                                  • Scholz pressuring Biden and succeeding with it is.. interesting. Merkel could never.

                                    But not even 24 hours after the German / American announcement, Zelenskyy is now saying that he'll need ''more than 10 or 15 tanks'' from us AND fighter jets on top of that. Enough. This is exactly why I understood our government's reluctance to send tanks. Give him jets and he‘ll want an atomic bomb next. And that idiot Sunak would probably send one.

                                      Ukraine have been saying for some time that they will need "several hundred" tanks - this isn't new news. Zelensky also first started asking for fighter jets in Feb-2022, again not new news. You cannot blame the man for wanting to do everything he can to keep control of his country and to keep his people safe. As they have so far, I'm sure NATO will decline the request for fighter jets but NATO countries will need to do better than 75 tanks.

                                      And while I'm all for criticising Sunak and his disgraceful government, the UK position on Ukraine has been spot on so far - Germany on the other hand has been less than dynamic, steered by its dithering leader who seems to want to take ages to make a decision.

                                        I don‘t particularly like Scholz, but he is smart. With a clear NO from him, Ukraine would be getting those measly 14 tanks from the UK and that‘s it. With a clear but premature YES from him, they would be getting 3 (UK, GER, POL) x 14 = 42. But thanks to him being smart about this (you call it ''dithering''), they‘re getting almost twice that number now. The US repeatedly said that they didn‘t want to send their tanks, but he made them.

                                        I expect Macron and Sanchez to follow suit now, getting us over 100. And then there are Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries, Turkey and others who should also do their part before we send more.

                                        A broad international coalition and joint action >>> rushed national solo moves.

                                            To answer your question which I wish I didn't have to, yet here I go.

                                            I will answer your question AL666 and lets hope what I say, it never gets to this.

                                            Ready.

                                            IF another European country was attacked by Russia that was in NATO, then NATO would invoke Article 5.

                                            Article 5 would be possibly, Game over for everyone, unless the countries that Russia attacked were Austria,
                                            Switzerland, Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, and the Vatican. Who are not part of NATO. So far, so good, yes?

                                            However, I am not certain about Andorra or Monaco as they have certain security arrangements with the major countries bordering host country. Who are part of NATO, bummer.

                                            Serbia is a no brainer to not be attacked by Russia, possibly Moldovia is okay, possibly. News from Moldovia recently is
                                            unique.

                                            NATO Article 5 = Google that. Don't take my word for it.

                                            The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.

                                            Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security .

                                            An attack on one is an attack on ALL.


                                            Look up M.A.D = MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION. Let's hope sane people in politics remember what
                                            this means. Google that.

                                            Collectively in the West only the US, UK and France have a Nuclear Arsenal. Russia has the largest Nuclear arsenal.

                                            So to answer your question AL666 = What if Russia invades or attacks another country in Europe?

                                            I am certain that UKMIX may no longer be our only concern, along with everything else.

                                            Something we may know nothing about is WAR. Yet it is the flavor of the moment.

                                            However we can agree, War is not good. People actually die in war. Let us hope the war ends soon.

                                            It should never have happened.

                                            People enjoy music. NO ONE SANE, ENJOYS WAR.

                                            A famous quote from WW2 was enjoy the war, peace will be hell.. an insane statement. Google it.

                                            I do know how WW3 was fought with ... nuclear weapons, it is agreed WW4 will be fought with actual spears, stones..
                                            that is if anyone is left to fight it..

                                            UKMIX gives joy, war does not bring joy or spectulating about war, never brings joy.. only sadness.

                                            Let's hope your question is never answered AL666. Peace be with you and always with all.

                                            I concur with you, scary times indeed.

                                            Lets get back to discussing music, charts and artists.

                                            Welcome to UKMIX, Enjoy the other topics AL666.

                                            All will be good???

                                            • About half to 2/3 of all Germans approve sending tanks to Ukraine, with the others disapproving it or being uncertain. Those who are against it fear that the war could escalate further and that Germany could get further involved into it.

                                                Something we may know nothing about is WAR. Yet it is the flavor of the moment.

                                                However we can agree, War is not good. People actually die in war. Let us hope the war ends soon.

                                                It should never have happened.

                                                People enjoy music. NO ONE SANE, ENJOYS WAR.

                                                A famous quote from WW2 was enjoy the war, peace will be hell.. an insane statement. Google it.

                                                I do know how WW3 was fought with ... nuclear weapons, it is agreed WW4 will be fought with actual spears, stones..
                                                that is if anyone is left to fight it..

                                                UKMIX gives joy, war does not bring joy or spectulating about war, never brings joy.. only sadness.

                                                Let's hope your question is never answered AL666. Peace be with you and always with all.

                                                I concur with you, scary times indeed.

                                                Lets get back to discussing music, charts and artists.

                                                Welcome to UKMIX, Enjoy the other topics AL666.

                                                All will be good???

                                                • Once again my country is going to be in the eye of the storm due to the Leopard tanks.
                                                  I think Hellas owns the most of these tanks among all the other EU members.
                                                  Sending weapons to Ukraine was already a blazing topic here because of Erdogan threating on a daily basis to attack us.
                                                  Now, the majority of people will be really enraged.

                                                    It also doesn't help that there are millions of nuclear war simulations involving GER /and other countries on Tik Tok with high ranking Russian government officials advocating for a nucelar bomb attack on Berlin and or an invasion.

                                                    It also doesn't help that the doomsday clock was set to 90 seconds to midnight and that major military experts are expecting full on NATO confrontation in the coming weeks with total human annihilation as its consequence. i for one have stopped buying concert tickets for future events bc all these news have me in panic mode.
