Gabrielius Landsbergis has appealed to a so-called “peace camp” encouraging Ukraine to accept a dubious offer from Vladimir Putin.

He wrote this on X.

“The “peace camp” should be renamed “surrender camp” because that’s all they really want. They want to stop the battle for justice and leave Ukrainians to die under occupation. Their “peace plan” means peace of mind for Russia, but no peace in Europe,” concluded the Lithuanian politician.

It should be noted that Putin’s ultimatum envisages the complete withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, illegally annexed by Russia, some of them partially. He also demands that Ukraine gives up its aspiration of any kind to become a party of NATO.

According to BBC, at the Peace Summit in Switzerland Italy’s Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni called the Russian president’s plan “propaganda”, absurdly calling on Ukraine to “withdraw from Ukraine”. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz rejected it as a “dictatorial peace”.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian leaders assured there would be “no compromise on independence, sovereignty or territorial integrity”.
