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 on June 26-27 in Germany, a few days later the NATO summit will be held in Madrid.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergei Lavrov previously stated 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.
