What happened to the reparation plans? I was under the impression Russia will foot the bill for the restoration of Ukraine. Not to mention the war is far from over and has reached the deadlock state.

There's not enough russian funds outside of russia to fully restore Ukraine and its economy. The total cost will probably go up to trillions of dollars.

I am not talking about funds outside of Russia. I believe the plan was to control and tax revenue streams of Russian energy resources as the form of reparations. Which is much better than selling country to Blackrock.

The US paid nothing to Iraq or Vietnam. Neither Russia nor the US paid anything to Afghanistan.

The only time I can think an aggressor country was forced to pay reparations - post WW2 - was Iraq paying compensation to Kuwait. Given that was the result of a UN Security Council Resolution, I wouldn't count on Russia paying Ukraine a single ruble.

Can you explain how Blackrock will "own" ukraine? Genuine question. I see many Americans comment with this talking point hard for me to comprehend how that would occur

I understand the reasoning behind it but that isn't to dissimilar to what happened post WW1 w/Germany. That turned out well...
