Kissinger has expressed his desire for Russia to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Ukraine.
Henry Kissinger, a former secretary of state, stated on Tuesday that to avoid “a new conflict against Russia,” the Ukrainian government must be willing to make sacrifices.
The former ambassador advised the Western troops against attempting to completely defeat Russia in Ukraine, stating that such a result would destabilize Europe and break up international links if it occurred.
Henry Kissinger, who is 98 years old, delivered a lecture at the World Economic Forum that was held in Davos, Switzerland, on Monday. Kissinger urged western nations to settle the crisis through dialogue and warned against further escalation of military action. He also warned against the use of nuclear weapons.
“It is imperative that conversations take place as soon as humanly possible to prevent catastrophic upheavals that will be challenging to overcome. It is preferable to return things to where they were previously as a starting point.” Kissinger is quoted as saying this in several different accounts.
As long as the fighting persists, the issue at hand will not be the liberation of Ukraine but rather a fresh confrontation with Russia.
