British Prime Minister Johnson urged NATO and the G7 to prevent a “bad peace” in Ukraine
MOSCOW, June 24 – RIA Novosti. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson appealed to the G7 countries and NATO with a call to prevent a “bad peace” in Ukraine, which implies territorial concessions from Kyiv, the Guardian newspaper reports.
Johnson addressed the topic of resolving the situation in Ukraine on Thursday during a visit to the Rwandan capital of Kigali.
“My message to colleagues from the G7 and NATO, in particular, will sound like this: “Now is not the time to encourage Ukrainians to agree to a bad peace, to a peace for which they are offered to give up pieces of their territory in exchange for a ceasefire. I think that would be a disaster,” Johnson said.
The G7 summit will be held June 26-27 in Germany, a few days later the NATO summit will be held in Madrid.
“Let’s pray.” The British were afraid of the words of the head of the General Staff about the war with Russia
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier that Moscow did not see the possibility that Ukraine would be “allowed to return” to negotiations with Russia. At the same time, he noted that if Kyiv wants to resume negotiations with Russia, Moscow will proceed from the situation “on the ground” and take into account the unwillingness of a number of liberated regions to return under the control of the Kyiv authorities.
Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who for eight years have been subjected to abuse, genocide by the Kyiv regime.”
For this, according to him, it is planned to carry out “demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces strike only at the military infrastructure and Ukrainian troops and, as of March 25, they have completed the main tasks of the first stage – they have significantly reduced the combat potential of Ukraine. The main goal in the Russian military department was called the liberation of Donbass.
