Zelensky 'slaps' former US Secretary of State, Kissinger says he

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has reacted harshly to former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who suggested that peace negotiations should aim to establish borders along the "line of contact" in the Donbas as it existed on the eve of Russian occupation. .

In a video message, Zelensky said: "Regardless of what the Russian state does, there is someone who says, 'Let' s consider his interests. ' This year in Davos was heard again. Despite the thousands of Russian missiles that hit Ukraine. Despite the tens of thousands of Ukrainians killed.

Despite Bucha and Mariupol, etc. Despite the destroyed cities. And despite the "filter camps" built by the Russians, in which they kill, torture, rape and humiliate.

Russia has done all this in Europe. But still in Davos, for example, Mr Kissinger comes out of the deep past and says part of Ukraine should be given to Russia.

In his words, Kissinger said of the conflict: "Negotiations must begin in the next two months before creating unrest and tensions that will not be easily overcome. Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante, ”he said, apparently suggesting that Ukraine agree to give up most of Donbas and Crimea.

"The pursuit of war beyond that point would not be about Ukraine's freedom, but a new war against Russia itself," Kissinger said.

Zelensky compared Kissinger's views to the pacification of Nazi Germany in 1938.

"It seems that Mr. Kissinger's calendar is not 2022, but 1938, and he thought he was talking to an audience not in Davos, but in what was then Munich. By the way, in the real year 1938, when Mr.'s family "Kissinger was fleeing Nazi Germany. He was 15 years old," said Zelensky.

Zelensky called those advising Ukraine to give something to Russia, "the great geopolitics," not always wanting to see ordinary people. Ordinary Ukrainians. Millions of those who actually live in the territory they propose to exchange with the illusion of peace. You always have to see people. "
