The chance to end the war will soon close


The war in Ukraine A pivotal moment has come. Russian troops are besieging Kyiv before what is expected to be the fiercest battle of this brutal war. Many more people will lose their lives on both sides. The geopolitical consequences of the outcome of the battle for the capital will be far-reaching. However, it is not too late for compromise and a possible solution – but the chances are slim and will soon pass. Don’t waste time grabbing that opportunity before it’s too late.

Last week, heroic Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was open to “dialogue” on grievances and issues that Russia highlights to justify the senseless war. Zelensky said he had “cooled down” on Nato membership for advocating a “collective security agreement” involving Russia, the United States and other countries.

He also said “a compromise is possible” for Ukraine’s breakaway regions, as well as Crimea, which Ukraine illegally annexed from Russia in 2014.

“We have to discuss this,” said Zelensky, offering a fact-wise analysis of a rapidly evolving situation while remaining firm in his position that Ukraine cannot recognize Crimea belongs to Russia, but also acknowledges that it is difficult for Russia to recognize Crimea as Ukraine’s. .

For his part, bold Russian President Vladamir Putin said there had been “positive progress” in the negotiations between the two sides.

He spoke after the foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine met in Turkey last week. Putin may be laying the groundwork for a troop withdrawal from Ukraine. Analysts are that the war is unfolding not according to Russia’s expectations. The proof is that Putin has miscalculated.

The likelihood is a long, protracted war that could end in the splitting of the country, with victory for both sides and Ukraine joining an ongoing resistance.

In this newspaper today, Britain’s ambassador to Ireland, Paul Johnston, writes about how Russia is standing before the International Criminal Court.

He said Western governments are adamant that Russia’s actions cannot and will not go unanswered and unpunished.

Putin has violated international law and many commitments to international peace and security. Human rights are being violated and human lives are affected in ways that are not expected to be seen again in Europe.

International economic sanctions against Russia are starting to have a serious effect. However, the slowness and lateness of the annexation of Crimea eight years ago made it difficult for Putin. However, the priority must be to avoid further loss of life in Ukraine. The threat of chemical warfare and even nuclear devastation exists. Putin seems capable of even more brutality to achieve his goals and save face. He will also seek to avoid the consequences of the International Criminal Court.

With the war in its third week, the chance for a diplomatic solution narrows, but still exists. Ultimately, international justice must be done and seen to be done, but, as Ambassador Johnston also points out, the road to justice can be long and the wheel can turn slow. The chance to end the war will soon close
