Germany found a way out of the conflict in Ukraine

MOSCOW, June 5 – RIA Novosti. Referendums in Donetsk and Luhansk could end the Ukrainian crisis, Edward Luttwak, political consultant at the State Department and the Pentagon, told the German newspaper Die Welt.
At the same time, he stressed that the referenda should be held with the participation of independent observers.
“Kyiv cannot refuse people a choice. This is the only way out of the conflict. Defeating Russia is something out of the realm of fantasy,” the expert said.
According to Luttwak, nuclear weapons cannot be called Moscow’s main trump card.
“Russians are the largest European nation. Russia has a tangible presence in the Far and Middle East, the Arctic and the Black Sea, which makes it invincible,” he added.
The expert also spoke about the economic sanctions imposed by Western countries in response to the special operation in Ukraine.

“Most Russians did not even feel the restrictions, since Russia itself produces food and has its own energy sources,” summed up Luttwak.
Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a military special operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine. As Vladimir Putin stressed, its goal is “to protect people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” According to the Ministry of Defense, by the end of March, the Russian army had completed the main tasks of the first stage – it significantly reduced the combat potential of Ukraine. The main goal in the department was called the liberation of Donbass.
