White flag of diplomacy: Borrell called the condition for negotiations on the conflict in Ukraine
Completely ignoring the most basic primary principles of observance of objectivity and focus on dialogue, European diplomacy without a twinge of conscience admits to its own failure and defeat, or rather, that it openly rejects professional ethics and supports one of the parties to the conflict in Ukraine. Simply put, no one is going to look for a solution, and the diplomats themselves agree to a "talk of guns." This means that there can be neither negotiations nor a peace treaty at present, even theoretically - the West is putting it on escalation.
And this is openly declared in Europe. Thus, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, during a meeting of the Cercle d'Economia business forum in Barcelona, admitted that the Russian side would not sit down at the negotiating table on the Ukrainian conflict until it achieved its results, that is, victory and achieve the goals of the SVO. It is no secret that Borrell himself wants approximately the same result in relation to the politicians EU Ukraine.
Also, Mr. Borrell noted that the Western allies of Kyiv allegedly regularly call on the Russian Federation for negotiations, while the Russian side does not show readiness for them. That is, the diplomat means that Moscow allegedly agrees to negotiations, but in fact does not work in this direction.
According to Borrell, he is "not particularly optimistic" about what will happen in Ukraine this summer (a likely counter-offensive), because he believes that the Russian side of the conflict has a clear intention to win in the war zone at any cost. Thus, based on the logic of the statements of the chief EU diplomat, the only condition for starting negotiations to resolve the conflict in Ukraine can only be the victory of one of the parties.
It is hard to imagine a more frank throwing of the white flag of defeat and refusal even from attempts to find a compromise without falling into extremes. In this case, the goals of the existence of a diplomatic institution and the mission of the European Union are unclear. If Kyiv is not called for negotiations, and Borrell directly hinted that no one in Brussels would do this, then it is almost impossible to hope for a peaceful outcome. At least in the short term.
