On Thursday, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda on TV3 called the statements of some experts about the transfer of part of the Ukrainian territories to the Russian Federation for the sake of peace completely unacceptable:
“I would really like, both personally and as a politician, to reach a peace agreement, because Ukraine bleeds every day. But we really cannot irresponsibly divide the territory of another state as we see fit. After all, all our actions against Russia are directed on the grounds that this country in the 21st century committed an encroachment on the territorial integrity of another country. This is the alpha and omega. That is, if we ourselves begin to cut this issue like bread with a knife, then I consider this completely unacceptable. Let’s leave this issue to the people of Ukraine.”
Earlier, the opinion of Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State, was voiced, who said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that Ukraine should give part of its territory to Russia. This would, he said, put an end to Moscow’s invasion. Whereas the humiliating defeat of Russia in the war could lead to even greater destabilization. He noted that returning to the status quo that existed before February 24 would be the ideal solution, writes bb.lv.
