War Russia – Ukraine. Live coverage – December 6, 2022
Russia may be looking for a way to withdraw from the war with Ukraine without negotiating a peace deal; if the Kremlin tried to lead to such a situation, it would be dictated by the desire to regroup its troops for another attack, warned US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
“Until Russia shows that it is interested in real diplomacy, it cannot back down. We must see a just and lasting peace, not a sham peace.”
– At some point it will end. And it will almost certainly end through diplomacy, through negotiation. But what we need to see is a lasting peace, not a sham peace. My point is that if the Russians fail to force the Ukrainians to surrender, which they will not, because the resistance of the Ukrainians is extraordinary, they are fighting for their land, for their country, for their fatherland, for their future, the Russians will not – and this is the biggest difference, Blinken said.
As he assessed, “one can imagine that the Russians will try to bring about a ceasefire that would be a false ceasefire: let’s stop hostilities, let’s leave everything as it is, let’s freeze the conflict, let’s never negotiate for the territory they have occupied and which they still control.” . In his opinion, Russia’s strategy would then look like this: “breathe, regroup, attack again.”
