Why the West began to demand negotiations on Ukraine

A few weeks before the midterm elections to the US Congress, the West began to express a persistent opinion about the need to start negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow.

In particular, in early October, John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the US National Security Council, said that the parties to the conflict should find a way out of the current situation through diplomacy.

Washington's persistence can be explained by the fact that at that moment the American administration was preoccupied with internal problems related to the election campaign and the focus of its attention was shifted from Ukraine.

After the end of the elections, according to the results of which the Democrats, although they will not take a majority in the House of Representatives, will retain a large number of seats in the lower house of parliament, the tone of opinions about the Ukrainian events has changed somewhat. Thus, a number of media suggested that at the moment Moscow is allegedly particularly interested in the negotiation process.

Along with this, as part of the information war waged against Russia, the Western mass media suggest some “agreements” between the Russian Federation and Ukraine about what is happening on the fronts, and also mention the old thesis about the imminent “collapse” of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the Kremlin's position on negotiations with Kyiv has remained unchanged since the beginning of the special operation, and Moscow is open for dialogue. Ukraine puts forward impossible demands in advance.

      Great! So exactly the same condition and the opposite side. Only she considers the entry of Taganrog and some other cities illegally ceded to Russia to be historically justified.

    because Russia killed the last hope, dodged the battle for Kherson. This was Wishington's last chance to reach a turning point. The Dnieper River gave this a chance.

    Now Washington has no more opportunities and time for a resounding military victory. Cut off the Crimea in Zaporozhye, many are considering it, but there is no river and it's too late. They can try, but this is not Kherson.

    Winter for half a year in the conditions of NWO? The EU and the world as a whole are not ready for this. Everyone patiently waited for the battle for Kherson, which was supposed to be a kind of climax.

    Now the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will put pressure where it is convenient and necessary for them, they will knock out equipment and personnel. Will calibrate the energy of Ukraine. The flow of weapons in the RF Armed Forces is growing. While old stocks of ammunition are being fired, like unguided 122 for hail, 152 artillery, NURSs simply dispose of the mass ... all this is ammunition that will not be useful against NATO. There everything will happen very quickly. Therefore, precision-guided munitions are needed. And against the Armed Forces of Ukraine, all these reserves can be used. Lancets delight with vidos. It can be assumed that the number of daily destroyed equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will increase.

    And what is the West to do? Send equipment for recycling all winter? The Armed Forces are getting weaker. Time is playing against the APU. Try to strengthen the Armed Forces of Ukraine with weapons and training during the winter? No prospects, Russia keeps such military pressure, which is necessary to weaken the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Russia, after strikes on the energy sector of Ukraine, withdrew from Kherson and offered the West to come to an agreement. This is a good, right moment.

    Russia will build up military pressure, which is dangerous for the West, because. they may lose their positions. If now the positions of the West are more or less comfortable, Russia has retreated, the West can start negotiations from a position, if not of strength (because there was no battle), then at least from an acceptable position. But this may change. If the Armed Forces of Ukraine suffer high losses (and they are very high and will be even higher), retreat and lose territories, and may even be heavily taxed somewhere (boiler), then the positions of the West for negotiations will not be at all comfortable. Have to ask for negotiations from a position of weakness. Or escalate. So now is the time.

    That is, we won’t go to the Polish border, as it was announced? And we will not take Odessa and Nikolaev? And we won’t exchange Galicia for the Suwalki corridor from Poland either? And why then did they beat him in the chest with a heel? ... Only chatter.

    After Kherson, it is already possible to demand from Russia, and not to negotiate, as before.
    The losers are always only required ......

    Pleasant conjectures, fabrications, hope for the American elections, hope for a miracle... But there are no miracles. Now neither side can end this war without losing face. For Ukraine, this would be a lesser shame, because. they are beaten by the "second army of the world", but for the Russian Federation, formally the aggressor ... a catastrophic shame for the boundless future. Only a clear victory is needed, otherwise a skiff.
