Ukraine’s Danilov Dictates, Don’t Tell Us To Negotiate, ‘Weapons Are Best Mediator’
April 23, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—The head of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council (NSDC, which runs the so-called Center for Combating Disinformation) Oleksiy Danilov stated in English on his Twitter account:
“When the goal of the Russian aggressor remains the same—to destroy Ukraine—recent peace settlement initiatives are pro-russian peacemaking. Don’t try to put us at the negotiating table, give us enough weapons. Weapons are the best mediator and a clear argument for Russia in communication.”
Danilov is not confused that, if Russia wished to destroy Ukraine, he would not be around to make such bombastic statements. But he is feeling the pressure of countries around the world—led by the Vatican, China and Brazil—that are not drinking Kiev’s Kool-Aid, and is evidencing a significant flight-forward response.
