Talk Of Ceasefire But Under One Condition

Talk from Russia about halting the war

There are reports coming from Russia that Putin is prepared to have a ceasefire with Ukraine, under one condition — locking in Russia’s current battlefield gains.

With a ceasefire offering temporary peace, this would result in abandoning around 11 million people who are possibly living under Russian occupation.

This would include about 18% of Ukrainian territory.

4 Russian sources, cited by Reuters, are familiar with Putin’s entourage have claimed that Putin expresses frustration about Western-backed attempts to hinder negotiations.

‘Putin can fight for as long as it takes, but Putin is also ready for a ceasefire freeze the war,’ said one of them, a senior Russian source who has worked with him and has knowledge of top level conversations.

Vladimir Putin is planning to strike British targets ‘anywhere’ if UK weapons are deployed on Russia’s territory. This is the latest ultimatum from the Kremlin, prompting further fears that NATO would bet involved with soldiers on the ground, resulting in a global conflict.

There is hesitations about freezing the war on the frontlines, stating this is a non-negotiable because it would leave Russian troops in control of large chucks of Ukrainian regions.

‘Putin will say that we won, that Nato attacked us and we kept our sovereignty, that we have a land corridor to Crimea, which is true,’ one of the sources added, giving their own analysis.

Russian goals fall short as Putin had bigger goals set at the start of the war, right now the regions Russia holds are: Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson.

Dmitry Peskov, the president’s press secretary has said there is no question that Russia will hand back the four regions. Russian constitution says those 4 regions are now permanently part of Russia.

Russian invasion has been a long dreaded scenario for Ukraine & NATO.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has stated on many occasion's that Putin’s terms is a non-starter.

He has vowed to retake territory which has been lost to Russia, this includes Crimea which was annexed in 2014 by Russia.

There is a decree that was signed in 2022 that states, any talks with Russian warlord is impossible.

Ivan Stupak, a former officer of Security Service of Ukraine and now adviser to the parliament’s national security, defense and intelligence committee, stated that Zelensky will have to negotiate with Putin.

‘It is not impossible for us to defeat the enemy. Maybe Putin will die soon or the people will revolt, like it happened in the republic of Bashkortostan,’ he told Metro.co.uk.

“But our soldiers are tired. Our manpower is not big enough to rotate them often enough.”

Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother, and my sisters, and my brothers. Lo, there do I see the line of my people, Back to the beginning Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them, In the halls of Valhalla, Where the brave may live forever!
