Ukrαine Firmly Rejects Any Ceasefire Deal That Involves Surrendering Territory To Russiα

Amid the ongoing ᴡᴀʀ, the 𝙐𝙠𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙖𝙣  authorities stated that the country will not accept any ceasefire settlement that involves ceding territory to Russiαn.

As Russiα escalated its onslaught in the eastern Donbas region, the Ukrainian authorities stated that the country will not accept any ceasefire settlement that involves ceding territory to Moscow. “The ᴡᴀʀ must end with the complete restoration of Ukrαine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. That is our victory. Our common victory with the civilized world. After all, today Ukrαine is defending not itself only. Today Ukrαine is the Thermopiles of Europe,” Andriy Yermak, Ukrαine’s presidential chief of staff, stated in a Twitter post.

Meanwhile, Poland’s President Andrzej Duda also offered his country’s support to Ukrαine, saying the global community must demand Russiα’s complete withdrawal and that ceding any part of Ukrαine’s territory would be a “great blow” to the West. Addressing the Ukrαiniαn parliament on Sunday, Duda said, “Worrying voices have appeared, saying that Ukrαine should give in to Putin’s demands. Only Ukrαine has the right to decide about its future,” The Guardian reported. Meanwhile, Mykhailo Podolyak, Ukrαine’s chief negotiator in the halted peace negotiations, declared that any concession to Ukrαinα  would be nothing but a postponed 𝒸𝑜𝓃𝒻𝓁𝒾𝒸𝓉. “Ukrαine  trades neither its sovereignty nor territories and Ukrαiniαns living on them,” he further added.

Ukrαine says it would not accept any compromise with Russiα
Following calls for a quick ceasefire from US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Podolyak categorically stated that “Ukrαine would not accept any compromise with Russiα that included territorial concessions.” He further warned that agreeing to a truce now while making concessions to Russiα would backfire on Ukrαine  as “Moscow would retaliate more forcefully after any break in the ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ.” Earlier on May 21, Ukrainian President Volodymyr said his administration was open to resuming peace negotiations with Russiα as long as its forces do not loss Ukrαine’s soldiers defending the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol.

Meanwhile, the officials of Russiα and Ukrαine stated that the peace negotiations between both countries have stalled. Ukrαine has been accused of hardening its stance by the Russiαn government as the country’s Deputy Foreign Minister Andrey Rudenko stated that Kyiv has effectively abandoned the peace talks. However, Ukrαiniαn presidential advisor Podolyak stated that talks have been put on hold as “Russiα refuses to admit that it would not achieve any objectives.”
