Davos Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger presented in Davos a peace plan for the Ukraine outlined Europe and the USA it must continue to support Ukraine militarily until the status quo in the country at the beginning of the war is restored.

In concrete terms, this means that the front will freeze along the lines in Donbass, where Ukrainian troops and Moscow-led rebels clashed before the Russian attack on February 24 last year.

Kissinger called this a “reasonable outcome of hostilities” on the basis of which a ceasefire must be agreed. “I am convinced that this will prevent the war from escalating,” Kissinger said. In the next step, “political talks on the resolution of the conflict” would have to begin.

The result of these talks need not “necessarily” be a division of territory along the front, Kissinger stressed. This means that there is a possibility that Ukraine will also annex the Crimean Peninsula and the Donbass areas of Russia returns. To keep the pressure on the Kremlin, Europe and the US should it will not relax its economic blockade against Russia until a peace treaty is negotiated.

Kissinger is 99 years old and, as secretary of state and national security adviser to former US President Richard Nixon, he initiated the rapprochement between the United States and China. He even today is considered a brilliant tactician.

West has already achieved goals

Kissinger had already made a first attempt to launch a peace plan last year. However, this was strongly criticized by the Ukrainian side. Now Kissinger sharpened the concept of him.

The Western allies have already achieved their goals, he explained. The aggressor Vladimir Putin had to realize that he “cannot achieve his goals with conventional means.” Russia obtained the extension of the NATO Sweden and Finland have to accept. But now it is important to prevent “the war from turning into a war against Russia itself.” Therefore, a dialogue with Moscow is necessary. In the future, Russia must be reincorporated into the international community.

Although both the Russian and Ukrainian forces are exhausted after nearly a year of fighting, it is unlikely that the parties to the conflict will come to the table in the near future. So far, Russia has only shown interest in the capitulation negotiations with Kyiv. Military observers expect the Kremlin to prepare a new offensive. In turn, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has made the recovery of all lost territories a condition for talks with Russia.

Kissinger tried to avoid Ukrainian criticism of his peace plan by acknowledging the country’s “heroic struggle” and campaigning for the first time. NATO-Proclaimed member of Ukraine. “Before the war, I was against Ukraine’s NATO membership,” Kissinger said. Meanwhile, however, he was of the opinion that a “neutral Ukraine” no longer made sense.
