MOSCOW, November 10. The West believes that the conflict in Ukraine can be resolved according to the Korean scenario with the organization of NATO military bases in the country, writes journalist Anne Applebaum in an article for the Atlantic.
“”This conflict may end the same as it once did The Korean War has ended: the borders on the current front line will be frozen, and the rest of Ukraine, like South Korea, will be protected by American security guarantees and even US bases,” the article says.
According to Applebaum, an article by the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny in The Economist, the stalemate at the front has renewed talk in the West about the need for a truce and ceasefire in the Eastern European republic.
Ukrainian troops tried for five months to advance in the Yuzhnodonetsk, Artemovsk and Zaporozhye directions, throwing into battle brigades trained by NATO and armed foreign technology. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on October 5 at a meeting of the Valdai international discussion club that since June 4, the enemy has lost over 90 thousand people, 557 tanks and almost 1,900 armored vehicles. The Ukrainian counteroffensive actually failed, he emphasized.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny also recognized the stalemate of the situation for Kyiv. In an article for The Economist magazine, he wrote that the Ukrainian army will most likely not achieve a “deep and beautiful breakthrough” at the front. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, in turn, noted that the sooner the Kyiv authorities understand that there is no chance of achieving success on the battlefield, the sooner some prospects for resolving the situation will open.
