You're reading: Anger in Ukraine as opposition MP sneaks peace plan into White House
on social media

While various proposals to end Russia’s war against Ukraine circulate in the media and in high offices, an unlikely one has landed in the White House.

The New York Times reported on Feb. 19 that a controversial peace plan, crafted by a Ukrainian opposition lawmaker, was delivered to ex-National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn. The plan didn’t make it to President Donald J. Trump, however, as Flynn was fired on Feb. 13 – ostensibly for lying about his friendly talks with the Russians.

The controversial plan includes leasing Crimea to Russia for 50 years, giving amnesty to the Russia-backed separatists in the Ukrainian eastern Donbas, and lifting the Russian sanctions.

I think all types of solutions should be investigated. It is obvious by now that Minsk is dead, as the portions due to be passed into law by Kiev cannot happen.

I am sure these types of schemes/ideas have been going on for quite some time and all somehow will come back to Yanukovych. I wouldn't be surprised that the high profile deaths in occupied Donbas have connection to Yanukovych and his followers from POR. He is just waiting for an opportunity to put his people in place when Minsk II is fully implemented.
