Sare Campaign Statement Supports Putin Peace Plan

New York State independent candidate for U.S. Senate Diane Sare has released the following statement titled, “Don’t Repeat the Mistake of December 2021: Putin’s Ukraine-Russia Peace Plan Is Our Best Option.” Given the importance that a U.S. Senate candidate is putting this existential issue before the American people, EIR is publishing her statement in full here:

Don’t Repeat the Mistake of December 2021: Putin’s Ukraine-Russia Peace Plan Is Our Best Option

NEW YORK, June 24—On June 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a remarkable address to the senior staff of the Russian Foreign Ministry which included a roadmap for ending the devastating Ukraine war. It should be noted that the Russian President had not held such a meeting since November 2021, after which he issued an urgent treaty proposal to the United States and NATO requesting certain guarantees, including the non-admission of Ukraine to NATO, and assurance that nuclear weapons would not be placed on Ukrainian territory. Putin also stressed that ethnic cleansing of the Russian-speaking population of the Donbass region would not be allowed. President Biden, then-U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the NATO command chose to ignore Putin’s legitimate concerns and treaty proposals.

Instead, they allowed, or more likely, encouraged, the neo-Nazi-infested Armed Forces of Ukraine to begin to prepare for an offensive against the people of the Donbass areas that had declared autonomy in 2014, massing tens of thousands of troops along the “line of contact” between Kiev-controlled territory and the breakaway Donbass republics. This is why President Biden was able to say with such assurance that “Putin is preparing to invade Ukraine,” (as he also assured us that the Nord Stream 2 Russia-German underwater gas pipeline would “end"). President Putin had already informed the West that ethnic cleansing would not be tolerated, so President Biden, Boris Johnson, and others knew that Russia would act to pre-empt the planned Ukrainian military offensive in order to prevent mass murder. On February 24, 2022, President Putin announced the launch of Russia’s special military operation. This was not a surprise, but was the armed conflict with Russia that Western leaders intended to provoke.

By the end of March 2022, Russian and Ukrainian diplomats meeting in Belarus and then Türkiye had come to a diplomatic resolution to the crisis; but before Presidents Putin and Zelenskyy could finalize it, PM Boris Johnson raced to Kiev to urge Zelenskyy not to sign, and to offer assurances that weapons and money would flow into Ukraine to support the ultimate “defeat” of Russia.

It is still not clear to me whether politicians like Boris Johnson, Joe Biden, Emmanuel Macron, Sen. Lindsey Graham and others are so out of touch with reality that they actually believe that Ukraine could possibly defeat Russia militarily, or if they are just saying that for the purpose of generating billions of dollars in defense contracts, while attempting to disrupt the remarkable progress of the BRICS nations in establishing a new order of international relations. Whatever the thinking behind the theory that Ukraine could possibly defeat Russia, what is obvious to even any half-witted person, is that Ukraine has lost. Ukraine has lost hundreds of thousands of young men, the potential breadwinners of families which will now never exist, and Ukraine’s economy is in a shambles due to the damage of the war, and the lack of a workforce.

I include this background, because it must be understood that the Western so-called “leaders” are really in no position to object to President Putin’s proposal, which is quite reasonable, given all that has occurred, not merely in the last two years, but since the U.S./U.K.-orchestrated Ukrainian coup in 2014. In other words, Joe Biden, Rishi Sunak, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg among them do not have one proverbial “leg to stand on,” and it is my duty as a candidate for United States Senator to inform them of that fact, and to advise them to accept President Putin’s offer as a starting point for negotiations.
