NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on 12 June that the resolution of the conflict in Ukraine was possible, but the question was what territorial concessions it would cost Kiev.
At the same time, he noted that the alliance is helping Ukraine to pay the lowest price for peace.
“Peace in Ukraine is possible. The question is what will be the price. How much territory, freedom and democracy are we ready to pay for this peace. NATO wants to help Ukraine to get the strong position at the negotiations with Russia, this should end the fighting,” Stoltenberg said at a news conference.
He added that NATO troops are not involved in combat operations in Ukraine because the alliance does not want an escalation of the situation outside that country.
The day before, Canadian Liberal MP Ivan Baker said that Western countries were becoming “tired” of Ukraine, which is reflected in calls for Kiev to cede some of its territory.
