Thankfully no one was harmed by the bombs that were dropped via drone attack.
Cluster bombs used to be a point of contention because they violate the laws of war. Also, Ukraine has many times promised not to attack inside of Russia’s borders so all of those previous norms are now out the window.
And yet on Wednesday, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen recommended launching membership talks with Ukraine and Moldova. She says that Ukraine has been “deeply reforming” the country since the war began. Has it? Has she missed all the canceling of the elections, corruption charges of high ranking officials, shutting down of opposition parties, persecution of religion and prosecution of draft dodging? Where has she been this last year?
Hungary opposed adding Ukraine to the EU and said that the idea of admitting a country at war is “absurd.”
