“Not everyone in the West is ready for Russia to lose”: Lithuanian diplomat explained why partners are delaying Ukraine’s victory
Lithuanian politician and member of the European Parliament from Lithuania Petras Auštrevičius believes that not everyone in the West is ready for Russia to lose.
The diplomat points out that Putin flirts with many countries because he wants to appear as a leader who is not impressed and has influence.
Austryavichyus told about this in an interview with Fakty.
Probably, it is difficult to talk about different strategies for victory or, let’s say, the end of the current aggression of Russia against Ukraine, because I don’t know if you can find anyone who would say clearly and confidently how it can still return. All factors should be evaluated and their importance and significance for usPetras Auštrevičius
He is convinced that “not everyone in the West is ready for Russia to lose, especially in the current period, when Putin is flirting with many because he wants to look like a leader who is not impressed and has influence.”
Secondly, let’s say directly that Russia has the resources to wage war. Western analysts perceive this as a signal that the confrontation may last six months or even longerPetras Auštrevičius
Aushtriavičius says that the socio-economic and energy situation in the West seems to push some politicians to decisions that are hardly possible without the end of this conflict.
Although I do not believe that with its end (the conflict – ed.) the situation on the world markets, particularly the energy market, will immediately stabilize. Because other factors also play a role.Petras Auštrevičius
