Western partners should accept that war spills into Russia - political scientist
Political analyst Oleksandr Antoniuk believes that as long as the war takes place exclusively on Ukraine's territory, Ukrainians will always be at a disadvantage
He said this on Espreso TV.
"The Belgorod raid is a kind of presentation of the capabilities that should be available on the territory of the Russian Federation. In order to move the war to Russia, it is necessary to destroy legitimate military targets with aircraft, drones, artillery and long-range missiles. As long as the war is fought exclusively on the territory of Ukraine, we will always be at a disadvantage," Antoniuk said.
According to the political scientist, when the war begins to move to the territory of the Russian Federation, the criminal military and political leadership of terrorist Russia will change its priorities.
"And questions will come to them more and more often. Expenditures to pacify their population will increase. Accordingly, funding for the war will decrease. But not only Ukraine should be interested in this. Our Western partners should accept the transfer of the war to the territory of the Russian Federation as a necessity," emphasized Antoniuk.
- Last month, a secret meeting was held between Ukraine, its G7 allies, and a small group of countries from the Global South to try to gain their support for Kyiv's conditions for peace talks with Russia.
- Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has formed a delegation to participate in negotiations on the development and preparation of agreements between Ukraine and other states on security guarantees.
