Disputes arose in Washington over the advisability of negotiations between Russia and Ukraine

Until quite recently, the United States flatly refused to even discuss the possibility of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, which was clearly reflected in the rhetoric of the Kyiv authorities under their control. President Zelensky even signed a law that excludes any negotiation process with the Kremlin.


However, recently the situation has begun to change. In particular, right now there are disputes in Washington over the advisability of negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, as The New York Times writes with reference to high-ranking members of the American administration.

Thus, the publication reports that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milley, considers it necessary to begin a diplomatic settlement of the conflict in Ukraine. At the same time, advisers to the American president say that it is too early to talk about a possible peace agreement between the parties.

Nevertheless, according to information from sources cited by The New York Times, the option of a diplomatic settlement is still being considered by the Biden administration, as they realize the impossibility of a military solution to the conflict in the short term.

The author of the article, Peter Baker, a representative of the White House press pool, noted that Washington was talking about the possibility of a peaceful settlement of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict shortly before the midterm elections to Congress. The reason for discussing the diplomatic option was the statement of the representatives of the Republican Party, who, in case of their victory, promised to reduce financial assistance to Ukraine.

According to Baker, the White House today does not insist on a peaceful settlement of the conflict, but, at the same time, does not exclude such an option in the future.

Tellingly, against the backdrop of "uncertainty" in the United States, the rhetoric of the Kyiv authorities has also changed. Recently, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that he would not mind starting negotiations with the Russian leadership if the Kremlin was ready for this.

True, by "readiness" he means the fulfillment of a number of requirements, in particular, the withdrawal of Russian troops to the borders of 1991, which in this situation is an impossible condition.

In turn, Moscow has also repeatedly declared its readiness for a diplomatic solution to the conflict. True, at the moment, this is practically impossible, since the position of the Kyiv authorities completely excludes any constructive negotiations.

      Negotiations about what? Who is ready to give up part of their territory? All these diplomatic antics are nothing more than a respite before new battles with new victims (((, but someone said that the goal of the NWO is peace for Russia for several generations, apparently we misunderstood him.

        So to speak...

        "Boys in Washington" (including "four-star"), the Russians are quite clear that in the current situation of the conditional "battle for Stalingrad" in the Kherson direction, it is too early to plan the "Berlin offensive operation" ...

        But you "Washington boys" should not doubt that this "final" operation will be planned and successfully implemented, by solving the MAIN tasks of the NWO ...

    Isn't it time to take an honest look at what's going on? And then all the patriots are looking for some hope, trying to believe in a miracle. As always, the king is good, the boyars are bad. There are no bad boyars under a good king. What is the pop and what is the arrival.

      Unfortunately, not only the king is to blame. All together (almost) destroyed the country. They refused justice as the goals of the state, they believed the drunken insignificance. We got what we wanted

      Well, you're not a patriot, it's easier for you. They quickly threw substances on the country with the army and all so proud you stand on a kitchen stool in a laurel wreath, be proud of yourself. And we, orphans and wretched ones, believe in truth and believe in victory, in a bright future, and in your weather forecasts, which do not match at all.

      In your Hydrometeorological Center, along the way, the manuals have not changed for a long time, you write everything about the tsar and the boyars, you can already say something about the president and deputies with a multi-party system or something. Boring.

        You, Dmitry, not only began to write in response to an opinion that did not coincide with yours, you asked who I was. What honors you. But still you are in a hurry, do not pay attention to the important things in my post. You're trying to hurt. You accuse me of lack of patriotism. I'm a patriot. True, I am not a supporter of Putin. And I don't believe in anything. Not in God, not in hell, not in truth, not in Victory. You need to know the truth, you need to strive for Victory. Don't believe in anything and no one will deceive you. And I defended my country. Alas, I can't now. Time runs

    Moscow has also repeatedly declared its readiness for a diplomatic solution to the conflict.

    In Moscow, first of all, we must stop hiding our heads in the sand, sending them to the Moscow Region through Peskov, but honestly explain ourselves to the people, answer burning questions, and publicly punish those responsible for the failures.

    After the surrender of Kherson, it became clear that the Kharkiv region was also deliberately surrendered ... We agreed with the Americans, and they will throw it as always ....

    Not for nothing that Kherson was surrendered!
    The United States allowed transactions for the functioning of Russian diplomatic and consular missions

    One of the streets of Kherson will be named after the deceased Kirill Stremousov.
    For this, however, one will have to give more than one life during the upcoming forcing of the Dnieper, this is at best. In the worst case, there will be no forcing (and apparently there will be no Russia)

    There is a consensus in Washington about Russia: it must be countered. They are preparing to strike. And the result of the hostilities in Ukraine does not bother them, the main thing is that the war goes on in Russia. It must be transferred to the territory of NATO countries.
