Suggestions of Leonid Kuchma not to respond to provocative attacks of terrorists on Donbass, and also to cancel the economic blockade ORDO, is the implementation of the Kremlin’s plan for the surrender of Ukraine.
This is in exclusive comments the online edition of UA.News said political analyst Viktor Kaspruk.
According to experts, the last meeting of the Trilateral contact group (TAG) in Minsk is an attempt of the parties to “begin to negotiate, negotiate”. He criticized the proposal of the head of the Ukrainian delegation at the talks, Leonid Kuchma to impose a ceasefire and not to respond to provocative attacks of the militants being held in civilian facilities in the temporarily occupied territories.
“Leonid Kuchma, who did not serve in the army and has nothing to do with military Affairs, does not understand that if the forces are OOS cease fire in response, the occupants just start to shoot Ukrainian military, as in “dash”. This is the beginning of the stupid policy of surrender, which the current government wants to cover up in front of his electorate, to demonstrate that she begins to do to stop the war. With the aggressor it is impossible to agree, if the aggressor does not want to negotiate. It is therefore necessary to look for radically different approaches. It seems to me that the few thousand soldiers who took part in the ATO, will never allow Ukraine could so easily give up when there are no objective reasons”
The proposal of Leonid Kuchma to cancel the economic blockade ORDO, the analyst believes the desire of the new government to implement the plan of Vladimir Putin’s five years ago.
“The lifting of the economic embargo ORDO is the implementation of the Kremlin’s plan for the surrender of Ukraine. In the last five years in TCGP negotiations have advanced Putin’s plan, it just was formulated in other words and terms each time fed alleged in the form of new proposals. To negotiate with Russia only on her terms. If Ukraine wants to capitulate, and then to give the Russian invaders in the area for the area, then offer Kuchma is the best way and for this he was appointed to his current position. However, the majority of Ukrainian patriots will not allow it. The only thing Ukraine will have to pay far more victims than during the Euromaidan and the tragic consequences of the last presidential election. Unfortunately, Ukrainian society was not ready for a real understanding that we offer this history and what we must do to preserve an independent state. To negotiate with Russia on equal terms, and to negotiate from a position of minority means that in a few years, the country will lose its attributes of statehood”
The expert is also convinced that the Minsk format of peace negotiations on Donbas was relevant in 2014-2015 when they managed to halt the advance of Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine. To date, the analyst believes that negotiations must be reformatted and expanded.
“Over the past week, Russia has stepped up military operations in the Donbass. The aggressor is once again trying to persuade us to peace, killing of the Ukrainian military. The talks in Minsk should finish – Belarus larded by agents of the FSB and the Ukrainian side will be forced to surrender national interests. The offer of Italy to join the Minsk talks for their “revival”, will do nothing. Need other negotiation platform – Warsaw or Vilnius. In addition to France and Germany, negotiations should join the US and UK as the countries-guarantors of Ukraine under the Budapest Memorandum. Only in this format the dialogue will receive a new impetus. If this does not happen, Ukraine will be “going in circles” and to lose people, and the political and economic situation will only get worse”
