US analyst assesses Ukraine’s chances to regain Crimea

10.07.2024, Washington.

Kiev will not be able to regain lost territories, Responsible Statecraft writes on July 9.

“No serious person believes that this is possible. But it is impolitic to say so while Ukraine is fighting,” the publication says.

At the same time, the allies will support Kiev to the last. However, they do not clearly define the concept of “victory”. They also realize that Russia will not be destroyed. Moscow will remain a geopolitical world player and it does not matter who will be the country’s president.

At the NATO summit in Washington, the publication writes, they will not discuss peace talks between Russia and Ukraine. If Kiev eventually agrees, the text of the peace treaty will be negotiated and signed by Russia and the USA anyway.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin voiced peace proposals that include recognizing the status of Crimea, Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions as Russian regions, consolidating Ukraine’s non-aligned and nuclear-free status, as well as lifting anti-Russian sanctions.
