What is it about poisoning peace negotiators

that speaks to the legitimacy of a country’s leader?

My question now about Biden’s unscripted nine word assertion that no doubt caused a run on the market for smelling salts, is what did the President know and when did he know it?

4. A number of Russian negotiators showed signs of poisoning....

It is being attributed factions inside Russia, not Ukraine.

Their Reich wing poisoned their own negotiators.

5. The Russian team probably intended to poison the Ukrainians.

But they fucked up and poisoned themselves too.

7. Yeah

I don't think Ukraine would have done that. Poison is Putin's preferred method for dealing with critics.

3. It's a little more subtle than defenestration.

6. I didn't see it that way I guess.

I saw it as an enhancement to Zelenskyy's resolve and strength. I do know that the russians are not acting in good faith in the negotiations so I think that find new ways to meet one's demands is necessary. It's not like most of the world doesn't agree, the quiet part not to spoken aloud, but it came out and perhaps for a good reason we might recognize at a later date.

I do see it as much ado about not much.

ETA: I had not scrolled down far enough to see the post about the envoys being poisoned!!



To that I say, I need to find out more about this. Hadn't seen that info before.

8. Reuters link.....

https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/russian-billionaire-abramovich-ukrainian-peace-negotiators-hit-by-suspected-2022-03-28/

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba later took a similar line, saying in an interview on national television that "everyone is thirsty for news and sensations". However, he also added wryly: "I advise anyone going for negotiations with Russia not to eat or drink anything, (and) preferably avoid touching surfaces"
