Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis amid calls for Ukraine to start negotiations with the Russian Federation on unfavorable terms for it: this should not come from Western capitals.
According to Ukrinform, this is reported by Delphi.
“It seems to me that this is pressure on Ukraine – to lay down arms or stop the offensive against the occupying forces, not on their terms,” Landsbergis said.
He stressed that this is a reaction “to the sounding formulations of some Western leaders that perhaps it is necessary to cease fire and start negotiations.” According to him, the conditions for the end of the war “should be created in Ukraine.” “They will say when the war is over for them, how long they intend to continue fighting, what results they need to achieve, what goals they set for themselves. This should not come from Western capitals,” Landsbergis said.
Earlier this month, French President Emmanuel Macron said Russia and Ukraine would have to negotiate to achieve peace and that “humiliation” of the Russian Federation would not contribute to peace efforts.
As Ukrinform reported, the day before, Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins said that the only solution to the full-scale war that has been going on since February 24 is the victory of Ukraine and the defeat of Russia. Any other option has the potential to give Russia the time and opportunity to rebuild and rearm its forces in order to “expand its imaginary empire.”
