President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky may make concessions to the Russian Federation in case of failure of the offensive operations of the Ukrainian army. Simon Tisdall, a columnist for The Guardian, said this on Saturday, July 8.
“If the current counter-offensive does not lead to a breakthrough, weapons stocks run out, a new winter energy crisis erupts and Western public support drops further, then Zelensky will be forced to enter into negotiations and even exchange territories for peace,” he explained.
Tisdall added that joining NATO would allow Ukraine to avoid many risks.
The defeat of Kyiv will have serious consequences for many states, the journalist said. According to him, such an outcome threatens, in particular, with destabilization in Eastern Europe and the Taiwan Strait.

The day before, German businessman Kim Dotcom called Zelensky’s refusal of a peace agreement with Russia a stupid mistake. He stressed that the days of the President of Ukraine are numbered if he fails to drag NATO into the conflict.
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden called it premature to resolve the issue of Ukraine’s membership in NATO. He said that Washington is ready to provide Zelensky with “security similar to that which was provided to Israel, if there is an agreement, a ceasefire, a peace agreement.”
On July 5, the North Atlantic Alliance confirmed its decision to create a Ukraine-NATO council. The first meeting of the organization at the level of state leaders will be held at the summit in Vilnius on July 12.
The special operation to protect Donbass, which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24 last year, continues. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.Share:
