British and Ukrainian foreign ministers criticized the “voice of the loser” on Saturday from those who said they were proposing to “sell Ukraine to end the relentless horror quickly.”
British Foreign Minister Liz Truss and her Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba said that both Ukraine and the free world “can’t afford to feel tired”, leading 7 groups (G-7) and NATO. In resistance to Russia’s invasion at this week’s Alliance Conference, which urged those to renew their support for Ukraine.
Before Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson told German G7 leaders that the price to allow Russia’s success and “most hack-offs in Ukraine” was “much higher” than the price to support Ukraine.
In the editorial published in TelegraphTruss and Kleber said Ukraine must negotiate “from a powerful standpoint” to ensure lasting peace.
“There can be no negotiating reconciliation of the Minsk Agreement at the expense of Ukraine’s sovereignty, security and territorial integrity,” the minister said.
They suggested that any transaction, including “sacrificing Ukrainian land,” would come at the cost of the “illusion of peace” of Ukrainian blood.
“Unless it involves the return of Ukrainian territory and the containment of Putin’s imperialism, it will be a swordsman,” the minister added, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The two argued that the Ukrainians are fighting not only for their future, but for “the future of freedom and democracy in Europe and the wider world as a whole.”
They also said Ukraine “can win this battle” with “unwavering support for a free world.”
“In order to gain peace and protect our way of life, Ukraine and the free world need to remain strong and united. To claim that people are starting to get tired and to end their relentless fears quickly. We must ignore the voices of the losers who propose to sell out Ukraine, “the editorial said.
“Ukrainians do not have the luxury of feeling tired. The rest of the free world is also not possible. From bombing innocent Ukrainian civilians to rape, torture and kidnapping, there is evidence of vicious war crimes. It keeps increasing. “
Johnson: “Bad peace” deals with “disaster”
After Johnson warns NATO’s allies, it would be a “disaster” to pressure Ukraine to accept a “bad peace” agreement that sees Putin’s surrendering territorial belt.
Earlier this week he thought Ukraine would win the conflict, but said “they need to be properly supported.”
“There is no doubt that there is a lot of Ukrainian fatigue in the world right now,” Johnson added.
When asked on Saturday what this meant, he said. I think it’s hard in the UK. I know the price of food has gone up. Everyone is watching this and too many countries say it’s an unnecessary European war.
“It’s an economic problem we don’t need, which will increase the pressure to drive, and perhaps force, Ukrainians into bad peace.”
Pressed on who this came from, he said. I think there are general feelings. “
Prime Minister Johnson also said that Britain could resign if the Cabinet decides that “it has just become too difficult and we must abandon the Ukrainian cause.”
