Russia-Ukraine War: How does it end?
…voices in the West are [now] pushing for a compromise that would bring the two sides to the negotiating table and would likely see Ukraine cede territory to Russia as part of a peace deal.
…Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins of Latvia declared this week that “the only solution to this war is Ukraine’s victory and Russia’s defeat.” President Andrzej Duda of Poland pushed back against “worrying voices” suggesting that Ukraine should give in to Russia’s demands.
In the compromise camp are Western leaders like President Emmanuel Macron of France and Prime Minister Mario Draghi of Italy who are calling for negotiations to quickly end the fighting and are anxious about a protracted war. Macron has warnedagainst humiliating Russia.
Henry Kissinger, the 98-year-old former secretary of state, bluntly suggested during his video appearance at the World Economic Forum on Monday that Ukraine would have to cede territory for peace.
