Borovik: Ukraine will have to sit down at negotiating table sooner or later

The parties to the current conflict will sooner or later sit down at the negotiating table – as noted by political scientist Vadim Borovik in his talk with Belarus 1 TV channel

According to the expert, Ukraine today is not an independent country, and so far it is not capable of negotiations.

“As far as Ukraine and Russia are concerned, sooner or later they will have to sit down at the negotiating table. The only question is what damage will be caused to demographics, how many human destinies will be destroyed and what the economic damage will be. But Ukraine still does not sit down at the negotiating table, and the main reason for this is lack of independence. Ukraine, in my opinion, is 90 percent dependent on the will of Washington. Maybe there is only 10 percent of its own will,” said Vadim Borovik.

The political scientist believes that Ukraine could continue the negotiations that began on the territory of Belarus, and then in Turkiye, if the West had not forced it to increase the escalation of the conflict.

“There is a global goal: to maintain the dominance of the US Dollar as a reserve currency and to control the international financial system. Ukraine is an instrument. The West doesn’t want to stop this. But it will be necessary, just as it will be necessary to devalue the US Dollar, abandon a number of obligations and withdraw from certain markets. But they want to delay this process. However, by delaying this process, they are trying to find time to develop the latest technologies that will enable them to compete in the future and maintain an advantage,” noted Vadim Borovik.

In early October 2022, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved the decision of the National Security Council of Ukraine to refuse negotiations with Russia while Russian leader Vladimir Putin is the head of the state. This decision was made in response to referendums in the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. Zelenskyy himself said that day that Ukraine was ready for talks with Russia, but with a different president.
