The US is going to freeze the Ukrainian conflict - Politico

The media reported that the US is preparing for a situation where the conflict in Ukraine could be frozen and continue for a long time, possibly decades. According to the Politico newspaper, President Joe Biden's administration is discussing the possibility of a long-term "freeze" of the conflict, including the definition of unspoken borders that Ukraine and Russia have agreed not to cross. These boundaries do not have to be officially recognized. It is assumed that this scenario is the most realistic, since neither side is willing to admit defeat.

US administration officials have said they are planning for the long term, whether the conflict is frozen or resolved. Long-term planning has become a priority for the Biden administration, in contrast to the previous focus on immediate and short-term measures.

According to the Biden administration, the upcoming Ukrainian counterattack will not deal a fatal blow to Russia. However, such long-term plans could undermine Kyiv's confidence in continued US support, given certain Republican aspirations to dilute aid to Ukraine.

According to US officials and analysts, the longer the conflict continues, the more pressure from both the regional and international community is felt by Russia and Ukraine. This may lead to the need to reach ceasefire and truce agreements. The newspaper points to the Korean War as a possible model for the development of events in the conflict in Ukraine.

Earlier, the head of the International Policy Bureau of the Office of the President of Poland expressed concern that a "frozen conflict" could arise in Ukraine. Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022. In his address, Russian President Vladimir Putin explained that the purpose of the operation is to protect people who have been subjected to genocide and oppression by the Kyiv regime for eight years. He noted that Russia was forced to use a special operation, as the country's security was seriously at risk, and all attempts to agree with NATO on the principles of security in Europe failed, and the alliance continued to expand and approach the borders of Russia, ignoring the protests of Moscow.
