Another peace formula for Ukraine

READ MORE

Jakarta, IO – This is the latest in a series of proposals for an end to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, characterized by an impending victory of the Azov forces over the “Special Military Operation” launched by the Russian Federation in early 2022. It was trumpeted in Davos, Switzerland on January 14, at the controversial World Economic Forum, a cabal of the world’s entitled wealthy and political operators. 

The “Peace Formula”, with little original content, was released after the fourth meeting of “National Security Advisors”, following previous efforts, such as the Ankara session held on Monday, November 14, 2022, notably without any Ukrainian presence. Ostensibly concerned with the potential consequences of the use of nuclear weapons by Russia, CIA Director Bill Burns met his Russian counterpart, Sergei Naryshkin. 

While US officials denied that Burns was “…conducting negotiations of any kind” or “…discussing settlement of the war in Ukraine”, that was assumed to have been brought up as well, echoing the presence of Russian atomic missiles in Cuba, during the curiously-similar 1962 East-West confrontation. 

While the UN General Assembly, customarily assumed to bow to American pressure, called for ending the war in Ukraine and demanding Russian immediate withdrawal from its former satellite, in line with the UN Charter, the Russians were not interested, emphasizing that blocking a provocative Ukrainian membership in NATO was an existential matter for Russia. 

The Davos confab laid out nothing new, stressing that the alleged “Peace Formula proposed by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy” – actually a recipe for victory on the battlefield – represents “…the quintessence of Ukraine’s desire to end the war, as well as a completely realistic plan to overcome the Russian aggressor”. Western corporate media have been promising and proclaiming an imminent Ukrainian victory, destruction of the Russian Army and ideally the collapse of the Putin regime, ever since hostilities commenced. There is also the expressed desire to break up the Russian Federation into a more manageable (by the West) number of small, obedient countries. Interestingly enough, the Russians have not risen up to overthrow their government, which has an 80%+ approval rating. 

This fourth talking shop of a “group of advisors” is said to be a logical continuation of a meeting in Malta last October, with little additional added. The intention is to engage, bribe or coerce representatives of some 81 countries and international organizations to declaim full support of the American-led NATO campaign for “full spectrum dominance” (openly-declared Pentagon objective). 

The luxurious Davos setting, where global masters such as the sinister Klaus Fuchs lay out a future imposed for mankind (our numbers reduced by 90%) saw a group of advisors setting out five well-worn points for a Peace Formula: withdrawal of Russian troops, restoration of justice, ecological safety, prevention of escalation and confirmation of the end of the war. Nothing about ensuring the status of Ukraine as a neutral “buffer state”, which has been a stated Russian intention from the outset. 

Contrary to certain reports and rumors in the media (since the often-promised absolute victory and unconditional surrender of the Russian forces is pending), “Ukraine will not agree to a frozen conflict. This is unacceptable for Ukrainian society and will not contribute to achieving a lasting, just global peace”. At this point, then, the “…comprehensive plan of further actions to implement the Peace Formula” [with] “attention to agreeing on the format of a Global Peace Summit” seems to be a distant, if admirable, objective.

Western readers should also bear in mind that Ukraine’s neighbors are paying keen attention to its territorial dispute, not simply confined to the brutalized Russian speaking areas like Donbass and Crimea (part of Russia, it should be noted, since the 18th Century). Poland, Moldova and Romania, concerned about their ethnic minorities living within Ukrainian borders, have ongoing territorial disputes with Ukraine: Moldova claims the territory of Transnistria, currently under Russian occupation (not gained recognition as an independent state by the international community, alas). Romania has a territorial dispute with Ukraine over Snake Island in the Black Sea. It is principally the ethnic minorities living in those border lands who are allegedly being harassed or brutalized, such as happened in the Donbass since 2014. 

While the diplomats and politicians talk, the issue at this point will apparently be settled on the battlefield, but since the utterly-faithful media all assure us Ukraine is winning, and destroying the Russian army, it will certainly work out to its advantage. (Byron B.)
