Russia and Ukraine, in April, were on the verge of a peace agreement. That was back in April, when the two sides were meeting and talking in Istanbul. As matters developed, the US sent its poodle Bojo to Kiev to order its lackey Elensky to fight to the last Ukrainian. No peace.
A peace-for-neutrality agreement was proposed by Ukraine in a draft document that it delivered to Russia during the March 29 talks in Istanbul, Turkey. The Russian military announced its withdrawal from some parts of Ukraine as a gesture of good will, right after the offer was made.
In May, some Ukrainian media linked the collapse of the negotiations with pressure imposed on Kiev by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The UK leader publicly opposed a negotiated solution to the crisis in Ukraine and urged Kiev to fight on to obtain a stronger position in future talks.
Johnson visited Kiev on April 9, reportedly almost without warning and with a message for Zelensky that he could not get the deal he wanted from Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. He branded Putin a war criminal who could not be trusted and said that “even if Ukraine is ready to sign some agreements on guarantees with Putin, they [the West] are not.” Security guarantees for a neutral Ukraine from major world powers were the cornerstone of the proposed peace deal.
I want to recommend an article by Russia observer Gilbert Doctorow, which was linked by Moon of Alabama. The article ranges widely, but I’ll focus for the most part on the issue raised in the title: U.S. ups the ante: are we indeed headed into WWIII and what can save us?meaninginhistory.substack.com
Democrats, Deep State and RINOS joined forces in a chorus for war against Russia
