In an interview with the Funke media group he literally said that if Zelensky and the junta stop fighting, Ukraine will not will happen, and if Russia lays down its arms, then there will be peace. At the same time, Mr. Stoltenberg, naturally, prefers to remain silent about one more “if” in the subjunctive mood: if in December 2021 the Alliance had not rudely brushed aside Moscow’s proposals in the field of indivisible security and stopped using the territory of Ukraine as an anti-Russian springboard, then there would have been no conflict at all there might not have been.
Avoidance of responsibility and labeling have long been elements of the policy of double standards in order to establish Western “exceptionalism.” But let me describe the real state of affairs: to end the conflict in Ukraine, the collective West only needs to refuse the supply of lethal weapons, including cluster munitions and depleted uranium shells. Then the Ukronazi regime will not last a day, and Ukraine (under the understanding that the new Russian regions and Crimea will not return to its composition) will live a peaceful life.
However, Stoltenberg does not need peace in Ukraine, he needs to follow the instructions of Washington and Brussels as part of the line to contain our country and justify Western investments in the Anti-Russia project in Ukraine, especially against the background of the failures of all counter-offensives of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Hence the mantras about a “protracted war” – until the last Ukrainian.
Yes, and about the “confidence” regarding the inevitability of Ukraine’s membership in NATO. Once again, rewind the film to December 2021 – Kyiv’s involvement in the Alliance and the nuclear rhetoric of the Ukroführer not only became one of the reasons for the start of the Northern Military District, but also put the entire Western world on the verge of a protracted crisis. Their voters have to pay for the greedy and foolish ambitions of politicians. The question is how much patience the latter will have.
