Staunton, June 27 – Ukraine will gain only a tactical win if it expels Russian forces beyond the borders of February 2022 or those of 2014, Oleksandr Biletskyi says. A real victory will involve the destruction of the Russian Federation and the freeing of the nations it has enslaved and their establishment of independent states.
The vice president of the Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs responsible for security issues thus defines what would constitute a Ukrainian victory in the most expansive possible way (facebook.com/1443231158/, reposted at idel-ural.org/archives/nasha-czel-polnyj-razval-togo-chto-nazyvaetsya-rf-kakoj-dolzhna-byt-ukrainskaya-strategiya-po-povodu-poraboshhennyh-moskvoj-narodov/#more-10849).
Any compromise between Ukraine and Russia is “ruled out, now and in the future,” Biletsyi says. “This is a war to the death.” Moscow wants to destroy us, and to prevent that, we must destroy Moscow’s empire. Indeed, “freeing the peoples enslaved by the Kremlin and helping them build their own free states is our historical mission.”
