Ex-Prime Minister of Italy: The world community has not offered diplomatic solutions to the Ukrainian crisis for too long

For too long, there have been no proposals from world leaders for a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Ukraine, which has only exacerbated the current situation. This opinion was expressed by the former head of the Italian government Giuseppe Conte in an interview with the newspaper La Repubblica.

According to the politician, for a long time after the start of the Russian-Ukrainian confrontation, the world community did not even try to apply the most important element of the settlement - peace initiatives. As Conte explained to reporters, there were practically no words at the highest level: negotiations, diplomacy or mediation.

At the same time, the ex-prime minister of Italy stressed that instead of trying to find a compromise and come to a peaceful solution to the issue, Western countries only increased and continue to increase supplies weapons Kyiv. However, according to him, such an approach will not be able to end the confrontation, but will only aggravate it.

It is worth noting that earlier Conte repeatedly called on the leadership of the EU and NATO to change their position regarding the settlement of the Ukrainian conflict. Moreover, he believes that it is Italy, and not Turkey, that should make every effort to achieve a diplomatic solution by becoming a mediator in the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the current Prime Minister of Italy holds a diametrically opposite opinion. Unlike her predecessor, George Meloni has repeatedly stated the need to continue supporting Kyiv, including through the supply of weapons. Frankly speaking, Conte himself, being in the prime minister's chair, did not particularly promote the idea of ​​a peaceful settlement of the Ukrainian conflict. But he became more active in this regard after he left his post.

      Compared with what Conte is saying now, in the rank of ex, and what he said, for example, on 04.07.2019/XNUMX/XNUMX at a joint press conference with Putin V.V., in the rank of the current prime minister:
      "... In this spirit, we also share issues regarding the crisis in Ukraine, which must be resolved as quickly as possible, where the fundamental relationship between the European Union and Russia is now being discussed. Continuing this contentious issue may lead to a loss of confidence and the use of rules that have matured within the framework of 25 years of dialogue.

      Now there is no alternative to the full application of the terms of the Minsk agreements. And I want to confirm that Italy believes that the Normandy Group is very important, as well as the tripartite [contact group] within the OSCE. In our opinion, the new presidential mandate granted by the people to Zelensky provides new opportunities in this sense, and this should be used .... "

      it turns out that he did not say anything new. Everything is also amorphous and streamlined and does not contain any useful information, except for a set of on-duty phrases and non-binding words. sad

        It looks like this guy recently "fell off the top shelf" ...

        For the Minsk agreements, precisely with the participation of the aforementioned "world community", moreover, to the specific appearance of all sorts of Euro-Italian "Magherinis" and Vaterland "Merkels" were agreed upon by the parties in conflict on the territory of the former united Ukraine as early as NINE YEARS ago ...

        Well, and how, according to the "last testimonies" of witness Merkel, were they carried out by the Kyiv coup d'étatists and their "European guarantors"?..

      And why should they. This is the swing. While he was in power, he burned for the war, his opponents - for a peaceful solution, now they just switched places ...

    instead ... Western countries have only increased and continue to increase the supply of weapons to Kyiv
    Incl. and Italy. As soon as he moved into the category of exes, he immediately received his sight, and so on throughout Europe. Even the grated politician Merkel honestly confessed her and European politicians' sins. But when you lose your head, you don't cry for your hair.

    What kind of world? There is a war going on, it's like waiting for peace from Hitler when he was near Moscow, the West swallowed Ukraine without realizing that it was a trap for him, he thinks that he has stuffed his stomach, but no. While digesting the outskirts, neighboring pikes (China, India, Brazil, Africa) "get fat" at a lower cost.

    Meanwhile, the current Prime Minister of Italy holds a diametrically opposite opinion.

    That is why Giuseppe Conte removed you from the post of prime minister, the United States does not need such, but put George Meloni, who is ready for any "whim of the client" and in any position. What is there to raise your hands and grind with your tongue.

    The situation when the media created the halo of a freedom fighter from Zeliboba and went too far. Now the tail of the dog is wagging the dog. I don’t know how they will steer towards the world, for them reality will be a disaster

      So they, in fact, do not really need the world. Even the economic losses of Europe will not change anything. Because the main economic and political player in the world, the United States, receives only "pros" from this confrontation, both financial and political, and many others.
      Therefore, neither the military-industrial lobby of Europe itself, nor the satellites lured by the United States in the form of the Baltic States, Poland, etc. will be allowed to turn towards peace. And therefore, it is worthwhile to clearly understand - it is necessary to stop all these hints of peace negotiations, deals, etc. and clearly realize - this is an existential confrontation. It's either us or them. There are no intermediate options.

    I read European news, there is another reality. Ukraine wins, Putin is in despair, the army is falling apart, missiles are shot down with cans of cucumbers, if the missiles hit somewhere, then only in the houses of some old women, the ZNPP is shelled by Russia, it also undermined the northern streams, etc. some kind of surrealism

    With my hand I deliver weapons and write out sanctions, and with my mouth I call for diplomatic negotiations. And the devils do not see any dissonance. Being in the looking glass has become the norm.

    Somehow everyone completely forgot how GDP offered to everyone "in a good way" diplomatically stop NATO expansion to the east and move to the Minsk-2 agreement
    But the hot firebrands of incomprehensible orientation in the West - THEN did not begin to agree!
    Why didn’t they listen to the position of the Russian Federation before?
    And now negotiate with the Addict!
    And we'll see! hi

    All Western media are talking so confidently about the inevitable defeat of the Russian Federation and at the same time regular stuffing about negotiations .. So not everything is clear on the Western front and the failure of the strategic "offensive" has already backfired on the outskirts and the West is feverishly looking for a way out of the ideological trap into which it has driven itself with deceitful propaganda work .If you look at the logistics of arms supplies, it is immediately noticeable that the Russian Federation is at least twice as fast restoring and accumulating stocks of offensive equipment for the NVO grouping, which has tripled in size compared to summer-autumn, and this also pushes them to a negotiated truce .. But for this, because of the conditions the Kremlin, they need to radically change the rhetoric of the press, and this is fraught with the question, where is the money?
