Russia wants to buy time and is planning a new offensive

An adviser to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj has warned against hopes for an early peace solution in the war with Russia. If the Russian leadership now says that it is interested in a peaceful solution, this is a deceptive maneuver, said Alexander Rodnyansky on the ARD program maischberger. the week. Chancellor Olaf Scholz had previously said that the federal government would do everything possible to give the negotiations between Ukraine and Russia a chance.

Russia's goal is to buy time and to stir up hope among the people of Europe that there can be peace, Rodnyansky said. At this time, Russia wantedrecruit new troops and then start an offensive again . "It's a typical deception, very well thought out." The Russian government knows that many people in Germany also hope for peace. "This regime only understands strength," stressed Zelenskyy's adviser.

"Of course, all of us in Ukraine believe that we can win this war," Rodnyansky said. The only question is how long it will take - and "how many people will die before we win it". Further support is needed.

Rodnyansky reiterated that Ukraine "ideally" wants a no-fly zone. NATO has rejected this several times. If that doesn't happen, an "intermediate solution" between such a zone and doing nothing is needed. Ukraine must get "very advanced anti-aircraft weapons" such as the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system or ballistic missiles. It is in the interests of all Europeans to end this conflict as quickly as possible.
