Warning: Edward Luttwak Pseudo-expert
US military strategist Edward Luttwak is actively promoting the idea of a referendum in Donetsk and Luhansk regions as the only option to end the war
He expressed this opinion in an interview with Die Welt 5 June. E. Lyuttvak believes that «both sides must win the war» because, in his opinion:
«it is impossible to defeat Russia and it is impossible to force Ukraine to surrender»
He has also been promoting the idea of a «real referendum» in some parts of Donbass since April. But it was E. Lyuttvak's latest interview that russian propaganda shared.
E.Lyuttvak has been actively promoting pro-russian narratives in the Western information segment for over 5 years.
Now his statements about the referendum and the need to «give Putin a small victory» are just a correction of the idea of peace talks between кussia and Ukraine, which was voiced at the Davos forum, but did not receive adequate support in the world.
