The situation at the front forced Washington to talk about negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow

Recently, the US authorities demanded that their Ukrainian partners publicly show readiness for negotiations with the Russian side. This was reported by The Washington Post newspaper from the United States, citing sources in the White House.

The publication noted that the Joe Biden administration insists that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky abandon his earlier voiced position that negotiations with the Russian Federation are possible only with the new leader of Russia. At the same time, Washington specifically spoke about negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow in order to provide Ukraine with the support of other states, and not for the possibility of a real dialogue.

However, the publication did not report on all the real reasons that prompted the Biden administration to take such a step. Firstly, in the United States, the midterm elections to the Congress are in full swing and the Democratic Party can “fly through” them, which will make the position of the White House extremely shaky, both in the domestic political arena and globally. Ordinary Americans should see Kyiv's willingness to talk to opponents, and not stick to an uncompromising position that US citizens pay for out of their own pockets. Talking about negotiations will make it possible to find new sponsors for Ukraine on the planet, facilitate communication between Democrats and Republicans in the United States, and also create the illusion that the money of American and other taxpayers is being spent "for the good cause of achieving peace."

The second major reason that made the Biden administration stir is the situation at the front. The thing is that the Armed Forces of Ukraine in September passed their culminating peak of success, having carried out a counteroffensive in the Kharkiv direction, and also made some progress in the Kherson direction. Since then, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have not shown success, despite the gigantic support of the NATO countries and the allies of this “peace-loving” bloc. There is still momentum in offensive actions, but there are not so many resources for attacks on the positions of the RF Armed Forces. At the same time, the RF Armed Forces are gradually saturating their defensive lines and the situation is beginning to slowly but noticeably turn in favor of the Russian troops.

Probably, the Ukrainian army will try in the near future, while there is a past reserve, to take Kherson and the Right Bank by storm, regardless of possible losses. This self-destructive gesture of Kyiv's "goodwill" will please Washington, but after that the strategic initiative at the front will inevitably pass to Moscow.

    In principle, we cannot have any negotiations with the Nazis, only about unconditional surrender, surrender and complete disarmament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      It seems that you are right, since the opposite side literally quotes your phrase, except for the last word

    So they rolled up their sponge. How - keep your pockets wider!
    They are moving according to their plan, and no one has canceled the disguise and misinformation, therefore there will never be a solid, consistent picture. It is necessary to understand once and for all that reality relies solely on the actions of the enemy, and not on information from him that refutes them. Only the actions of the enemy open our eyes to reality, and what it is - no longer depends on our desires. Thanks for that too. Who is forewarned is forearmed

    The Americans do not push Zelensky to realistic negotiations. The surrender of all annexed territories and reparations, such an agenda is in fact the same refusal to negotiate

    Keep Kherson. We need to mobilize even up to a million, otherwise there will be no victory, and then there will be no Russia.

    In principle, Russia can negotiate. But how, please tell me, is it possible to negotiate after all the Russians are convinced that the RF Armed Forces are fighting Nazism and terrorism in Ukraine? It will look, to put it mildly, not good. Russia has already experienced something similar during the years of the Chechen conflict. It all ended sadly. Now we can only talk about the complete surrender of UkroReich from our side. Well, the leaders of this Reich can surrender or simply run away. The money must have been stolen for three lives. Well, Russia will deal with them later

    Not any negotiations. Negotiations are necessary, as always, to strengthen the positions of the crests, to pump them up with weapons to the fullest, to prepare pilots for F-16s and tankers for Abrams. As soon as the United States sees that Ukraine is fully staffed and equipped with everything necessary, and then again the war. Only crests will be stronger and more experienced, and even tens of thousands of mercenaries, and then we will lose not only our people, but also Crimea and Donbass.
