The head of the European Commission opposed the ceasefire in Ukraine – Kommersant

The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, did not support the proposal of a number of countries to achieve a ceasefire in Ukraine. She is convinced that this will only “freeze the conflict”, and the line of contact will be a source of destabilization.

According to Ms. von der Leyen, “a ceasefire that leaves the conflict frozen will not lead to a lasting peace.” She considers it fair to withdraw Russian troops and equipment from the territory of Ukraine.

“A ceasefire would be unstable and would destabilize the region along the line of contact. No one will invest or restore (Ukraine.— “b”), and the conflict could flare up at any moment,” the head of the EC said at a security forum in Slovakia (quoted by RIA Novosti).

In May, Chinese Ambassador Li Hui traveled to Ukraine as part of a European tour and met with President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Wall Street Journal reported that a Chinese diplomat suggested calling Ukraine for an immediate ceasefire and recognizing Ukrainian territories occupied by Russia as Russian. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba denies the second requirement.
