Zelensky’s Choice: Peace And EU Candidacy Or “Protracted Conflict” On Washington’s Demand

Click to see the full-size image

Written by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analyst

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and Romanian President Klaus Iohannis arrived in Kiev on June 16, where they met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During this trip, the European leaders announced their support for Ukraine’s candidate status for EU membership, however, other reports suggested that they also pressured Zelensky into accepting the loss of Crimea and Donbass.

A day after their visit, the European Commission formally recommended EU candidate status for Ukraine, something that does eventually need approval from all 27 member states of the bloc. Russian President Vladimir Putin said during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum: “We have nothing against it. It’s their sovereign decision to join economic unions or not… It’s their business, the business of the Ukrainian people.”

Moscow does not oppose Ukraine’s EU membership as the bloc is not a military threat, unlike NATO. Putin said that as far as Ukraine’s economic integration is concerned with the EU, it was their choice and is something that has widespread popularity across Europe, even amongst non-EU member states.

It is recalled that the trip of Macron, Scholz, Draghi and Iohannis to Kiev comes just a day after the visit of EU candidates Albania, Montenegro and North Macedonia, whose leaders, Edi Rama, Dritan Abazović and Dimitar Kovačevski, respectively, issued with Zelensky a joint statement in support of granting Ukraine candidate status for EU membership.

However, reports are emerging that the major European powers are attempting to make Zelensky realize that territorial concessions are a reality he must accept. It is likely that the European powers, despite the incessant pressure from Poland and the Baltic states, accept that Russia will achieve its goals in seizing all of the territory of Luhansk and Donetsk.

Until recently, the EU believed that sanctions would force Russia to end its military operation. Again, the realization has set in that sanctions, which in the interim will certainly remain and perhaps even intensify, will not deter Moscow’s determination from achieving its aims.

In this way, it would appear that Zelensky has no choice but to accept the new reality that Ukraine is once again becoming a territorially smaller country. Kiev appears determined to defy what the Europeans want – a quick conclusion to the war. Due to this, the war will remain protracted, something that the Biden administration wants.

According to a Washington Post article published on June 17, a senior State Department official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe ongoing international deliberations regarding the war in Ukraine, said: “Biden administration officials had discussed the possibility of a protracted conflict with global spillover effects even before February, as US intelligence suggested Putin was preparing to invade.”

The official said that the Biden administration hopes that new weaponry, successive waves of sanctions and Russia’s diplomatic isolation, will make a difference in an eventual negotiated conclusion to the war, potentially diminishing Putin’s willingness to keep up the fight.

The problem from this viewpoint is that Moscow is not diplomatically isolated, but just rather from the West. In fact, the UAE and Saudi Arabia snubbed opportunities to meet with US officials earlier in the war and India has only increased its economic relations with Russia.

Poland and the Baltic states fervently defend the US viewpoint that Russia is isolated and must be opposed at every opportunity, a decision that the rest of the EU took but now feels the effects it had on the economy and domestic politics. For this reason, the EU’s major players want Ukraine to quickly find a way out of the war without publicly announcing it in a direct manner.

The EU seemingly now acknowledges the impossibility of establishing an anti-Russian front. China was never going to be drawn into such a position but perhaps most surprisingly was the European shock that India was less than enthusiastic in unnecessarily ruining its decades long close partnership with Russia.

Effectively, Zelensky has a choice – find a peace with Moscow and open an eventual path towards EU membership, or carry out US orders of a pointless “protracted” war when Ukraine does not have the strength or means to recapture lost territory, which in turn only protracts the suffering and destruction in the country.

The British military are unable to recruit the required numbers to fill many of the available posts and as a result recruit in former colonial countries in Africa and alike. I know this as fact. With standards being dumbed down to get the numbers up! Tank and infantry regiments numbers are difficult to replace with many younger white working class British young men no longer interested in the military as a vocation and the number of experienced NCOs leaving the service is high. The woke agenda is everywhere .with fittness tests for infantry units being reduced to get women and those who would normally be refused admission due to issues with fitness into the ranks. Political correctness at all levels. The British military are in No position to engage in a major European conflict with anyone let alone Russia. Current British army numbers are full time around 82.000 and reserves around the same. Many of the reserve units are Not even capable of filling up a section let alone a platoon or company with numbers again low and many leaving. The politicians can talk but its just talk I for see another Dunkirk…….

Can we please be adults? Elensky has no power and doesn’t decide anything. He is an actor with a script. The UK and US are running the show here. The visible politicians rarely have any actual power. The Venetians ( Black Nobility ) formerly Phoenicians are in control via the Jesuits and freemasonry and everything is preplanned. I had read back when Yeltsin was still in the Kremlin that most of the former Soviet Union would be reunited under Russian control and the collapse had been a ruse to do a reset. Current events are bearing this out, pun intended. Thus, the question remains is Putin charting an independent course from the globalist cabal or just another player in the game edging the world closer to one government and technocracy ? I hope and pray Putin and Russia are on the side of God and freedom for clearly NATO’s leadership is fascist masonic and corrupt to the core.

Who gives a shit what Vladimir Putin is against or not against of? He’s an international terrorist. He has no say about what Ukraine wants or doesn’t want to do. To the rest of the world he’s just the grotesque lunatic in Moscow who just destroyed a bunch of cities and murdered an entire population. What ISIS did in Iraq and Syria is nothing compared to what Russia’s modern day Adolf Hitler has done in Ukraine.

Same as Romania had to made territorial concessions after world war 2 : like North Bucovina, Bassarabia, Snake Island to URSS/Ukraine, (same did Cehoslovakia and Poland at the time ) so must Ukraine cead Crimea and Donbass. Lets speak the truth, Ukraine was the biggest winner in teritorial aquisiotns after world war 2.

I agree.

The Zionasties in Ukraine need to be eradicated and securing all of the Russian borders from NATO weapons supply into Ukie land would ensure that NATO has nowhere to hide behind.

This includes all the current ZioStormTroopers dressed and tattooed with WW2 German regalia.

HAT451

Lvov will most likely be captured, but not by the Russians, but the Polish, for the following reasons:

1. Lvov was part of Poland prior to WW2 2. In that part of the country most of the residents self identify themselves not as Russians not as Ukrainians but as as Galicians or Poles. 3. During the first 117 days of this conflict, there were several casus belli attempts by Poland to justify Poland entering into the conflict or get NATO as a combatant. 4. The Russians stated goals are de-natizification of Ukraine, and protection of the Russian speakers.

Pamfil Military Academy

Yes and no. Poles, yes, are wanting that to happen, but the master of the cards here are not Poland, but JUSA cabal and the anglo-zionists, and they will not allow this.

The fact that there has been no interest to compromise on the part of Ukraine means they still entertain some hope that they can still win. However with the dwindling support given, the probability to turn things around is grim and bleak. It is also apparent that the choice to end this war is not in Zelensky’s hands.

“French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi ” Curly, Larry and Mo aka The Three Stooges meet Monika Zelenski and imagine that there will still be a Ukropland after all this is over. Which of these 3 clowns brought the traditional Monika Zelenski cigar for the Billybob Klingon under the desk shenanigans, I wonder. Someone needs to tell these Rothschild waiters that there won’t even be a Natostan slash EUSSR when all this is over. Still in their mindless hubris the Three Stooges convince themselves that it is business as usual even as the seething, dying covaid$ squirted masses of Urupp get ready for the inevitable collapse of their fiat filth €urodollah and all things angloZionaZi and a hasty return to the cold, damp and dark Middle Ages when General Winter rides in this coming October.

They say a picture can say a thousand words. In the image, Zelensky looks like a defendant being escorted to court by spooks. If only? Russia only has to hold out long enough to see the western house of cards, smoke, and mirrors, fall, and fall hard. Of course our dear leaders and their cronies in the west will be ok, so don’t panic. They won’t go without anything they are accustomed to. So it’s not all bad news.:)

Arogent EU. They seem to think Russia will accept a peace deal for what they think to be acceptable loss. Russia might want an unconditional surrender now. These we’re the requests at the beginning, things have changed, maybe a better carrot for peace is to add Odessa into the basket

The US can feed this monster forever. Each new tranch of weapons will be more sophisticated. This war can go on and on. Russian deaths (and Ukrainian deaths) will rise.

As any successful poker player knows, the art is stopping when your ahead. If Putin got the Donbas and Crimea he would be a winner.

To get it he has to publicly declare that if Russia gained that territory it would leave the rest, and make a permanent peace.

Germany, France, Italy and the western EU would leap at the chance to settle in these terms. Ukraine would mightily resist. Poland and the Balkins, and the other former Warsaw Pact nations would resist. UK and USA would resist.

Only if Putin declares these terms publicly is there a chance to force this outcome.

I have made this point for several months now. The losses suffered in the interim are wasted.

Cut the the chase. Otherwise you will be outspent, out teched, and outgunned, in the long run. When the entire Black Sea fleet simultaneously goes to the bottom, and long range missile artillery rains down on the luggage, in the rear, the few kilometers you’ve gained since April will prove far to dear a prize to have died for.

Salamender

Definitely Nyet. Start talking, only after securing Odessa. Before that, all talks are a waste of precious time. Extending this conflict a bit for the right reasons, will have many benifits. One of them is depleting NATO weaponry for a while, forcing them to tone it down. Another is bankrupting the EU, who knows, the whole Soros creation may collapse. Don’t be naive.

anonQ

I have to wonder if Ukraine is just another money laundering operation for corrupt western politicians like Julian Assange claimed about Afghanistan.
