Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov says it’s…silly (my term)…to negotiate with the Russian barbarians while they’re still inside Ukraine.
“There’s no way to have conversations with them; you can’t talk with terrorists,”…citing Russia’s attacks on civilian infrastructure during a brutal winter. The war will not end, he continued, until the Ukrainian forces “turn everything back—all the territories.”
“Everything will be linked once again, including Crimea,” Danilov said. “Not one meter will be left for the taking of the enemy.”
Indeed. How is it even possible to negotiate with an entity whose first and only goal is the utter dissolution of your nation?
