Ukraine must agree terms for negotiations to end Russia’s war against it. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Steletenberg on Monday (14/11/11).
Monday was Kherson Day. This is the newly captured city in the south. This was the third setback suffered by Russian President Vladimir Putin since February.
Stoltenberg stated, “We shouldn’t underestimate Russia.” Stoltenberg said that the Russian armed forces are capable and have a lot of troops. Stoltenberg spoke in The Hague at a news conference with Dutch officials.
“The next few months will be difficult. Putin wants Ukraine to experience winter cold and darkness. He stated: “So, we must maintain the course.”
Stoltenberg agreed with Antony Blinken (U.S. Secretary of State) over the weekend. He stated that Ukraine was entitled to decide when and how it wants to negotiate with Russia in order to end the conflict.
They are paying the greatest price for the loss of life and the damage to the country. He stated that Ukraine had to decide what terms it was willing to accept.
Stoltenberg stated that “what happens around a table has fundamentally to do with the situation on ground.” He said: “So, what should we do?” We must support Ukraine and help them strengthen their hand in order to reach a stage where Ukraine can be an independent sovereign state in Europe.
