Trump offers peace to Ukraine on Russia’s terms

Former US President Donald Trump believes that Ukraine could have avoided a Russian attack, agreeing to territorial concessions and neutral status.

“At the very least, they should have made a deal. They could give Crimea. They could do something with NATO, say, okay, we are not going to join NATO, and then they would have a country, because I think Putin wanted to reach an agreement.”he said on the air of the podcast The Clay Trevis and Buck Sexton Show.

With the start of a full-scale Russian invasion, it will be more difficult to “negotiate,” Trump said.

Trump belongs to a cohort of leaders who believe that the war in Ukraine could be stopped by concessions to the President of the Russian Federation, allowing the dictator to “save face.” History knows many similar examples, but concessions to dictators have never helped to stop further aggression.
