Idea Of ​​Peace Talks With Russia Before Its Full Defeat“Misleading” - French Expert

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The president of the Center for Study and Research for Political Decisions (France), Nicolas Tenzer, believes that the very idea of ​​inviting Russia to the negotiating table before defeating it on the battlefield is misleading so it should be ruled out.

The expert expressed the opinion during a special event at the Kyiv Security Forum dedicated to the Group of Seven Summit and the Peace Summit, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Tenzer praised the promises of Ukraine's partners, made at the Peace Summit, regarding the return of Ukrainian children illegally deported by Russia and support for Ukraine's territorial integrity. At the same time, in his opinion, at the moment it is too early to hold a peace conference and it would be better to hold a war summit because winning the war is a priority.

Ukraine's victory should be a common goal of its partners so they must provide the nation with everything it needs so that it can win this war unequivocally and irreversibly, the expert believes.

He also dismissed as misleading the idea, voiced in Switzerland, of ​​inviting Russia to the negotiating table together with other parties.

This is because every time someone brings up peace, this supports the Russian narratives, heard in many capitals, that concessions must be made to Russia in order to come to some sort of an agreement, says Tenzer.

Those opposing Russia must refrain from the very words "peace negotiations", Tenzer is convinced.

As reported, the Peace Summit was held in the Swiss resort of Bürgenstock on June 15-16. The participants discussed nuclear security, food security, and the humanitarian dimension - the exchange of prisoners and the return of abducted Ukrainian children.

On Wednesday, June 19, Antigua and Barbuda and the Organization of American States joined the Communique.
