Saying that Ukraine must give up territory to avoid humiliating Putin, and that EU membership will take years (it will but there’s no need to so blatantly announce it). Has he spent so long ‘negotiating’ whether Putin that he’s developed Stockholm Syndrome!?!
He seems to firmly believe that resolution can be achieved through diplomacy. with concessions, (jaw-jaw not war-war, of course) but still has others to convince though:
Mr Macr: ' crucial President Vladimir Putin had a way out of what he called a "fundamental error"
Dmytro Kuleba ( Ukr foreign min.):
'allies should "better focus on how to put Russia in its place" as it "humiliates itself".
and that "calls to avoid humiliation of Russia can only humiliate France and every other country that would call for it"..
Bo-Jo: 'peace talks over Ukraine are likely to fail, as dealing with Putin was like "a crocodile when it's got your leg in its jaws" '
'..vital that the West continues arming Ukraine.'
