Ukraine peace plan ‘absolutely wrong’ – UK – RT World News

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak says ceasefire now will not lead to ‘just and lasting peace’

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak dismissed calls for a ceasefire in Ukraine, announcing that Kiev should keep fighting until peace is achieved “It’s well deserved.” UK and US backers in Ukraine have previously rejected calls for peace on several occasions.

During a parliamentary session on Monday, Sunak was asked by former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn whether he agreed with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s proposal to get UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Pope Francis Supported ceasefire initiative.

Corbyn added that Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva had said earlier on Monday, “A ceasefire is not peace,” But without one, “this war is going to go on and get worse.”

“I totally disagree with him,” Sunak replied. “A ceasefire is not a just and lasting peace for Ukraine. Russia has engaged in an illegal and unprovoked invasion… The right and only response to this is for Russia to withdraw its troops from Ukraine.”

“All plans masquerading as peace plans,” he continued, “It’s really just trying to freeze the conflict in place, which is absolutely wrong and should be condemned.”

Sunak’s position is in line with that of the United States, which Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in December that any ceasefire involving frozen fronts would lead to “False peace.” At the time, Sunak said there would be a ceasefire “Totally pointless,” And Britain will only accept Russian troops from “Conquered territories.”

Ukraine considers the regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye, which voted to join the Russian Federation last year, to be its territory, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has vowed to bring the four regions back under the umbrella of the Russian Federation. under the control of Kiev. Zelensky also pledged to take back Crimea, which voted to join the Russian Federation in 2014.

However, U.S. military officials have publicly stated that retaking Crimea is beyond Ukraine’s capabilities, and Kiev’s long-awaited spring counteroffensive against Russian forces has so far failed to materialize. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian army has suffered damage from more than two dozen brigades in the city of Artemovsk/Bahmut since October, only to lose the city over the weekend.
