Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger advised Ukraine and the West on Sunday (07/24/2022) not to cede any Ukrainian territory to Russia in future peace negotiations to end the conflict.
Kissinger told the German public broadcaster ZDF that the cession of Ukrainian territory should not be on the table, and urged the West to be clear about what is under discussion and what is not under any circumstances.
All this had to be done in conjunction with the people of Ukraine, Kissinger added, as Russia’s war against Ukraine was five months old.
Kissinger became a top US foreign policy maker from the late 1960s to the late 1970s, serving as a national security adviser and secretary of state. In 1973 he received the Nobel Peace Prize for agreeing to a ceasefire and withdrawal from what was then North Vietnam.
