Scholz-Macron delivered a military ultimatum to Zelensky

German, French and even British-American pressure on B.Zelensky with Bild publicly revealing that Ukraine has been given a military ultimatum – if he fails, Ukraine is over

Bild confirms WarNews247, pointing out that Scholz-Macron is pushing Zelensky for a deal with Putin. They reiterate that the spring counterattack will be Ukraine's last chance to improve its position on the battlefields and, consequently, its negotiating power. If it fails, then the worst will be ahead: Russia will continue the war of attrition until it reconstructs the territorial boundaries of the “new Russia”, that is, from Transnistria-Odessa-Nikolaev - to Kharkov.

BILD: West will push Ukraine to negotiate with Russia: The West will put pressure on Kiev to force it into peace talks with Moscow, if Ukrainian troops fail to achieve significant success by autumn, Bild newspaper reports, citing sources from the German and US governments.

💬 "With the help of new weapons, they want to give Ukraine a chance to recapture more occupied territory. If counterattacks fail, pressure on Kiev to negotiate with the Kremlin will increase,” the newspaper wrote. It is noted that the West verbally wants to support Ukraine as long as necessary, but "behind the scenes" there is already talk of a "military ultimatum."

"Military ultimatum" to B. Zelensky: Last week, Zelensky, referring to Macron's desire for dialogue with Russia to end the war, told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.:

💬 "It will be a failed dialogue. Macron is actually wasting his time. I have come to the conclusion that we are not in a position to change Russia's position." "If they [the Russians] have decided to isolate themselves in the dream of regrouping the old Soviet empire, there is nothing we can do about it. It is up to them to decide whether to support or oppose cooperation with the community of states on the basis of mutual respect," he said. Zelensky rejected the argument that it was Western sanctions that pushed his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, into international isolation. "On the contrary, it was his decision to start the war that put Putin on the sidelines," he said.

Negotiations with Turkey as mediator. A few days later, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, on the occasion of the one-year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, changed his mind. Asked if he would participate in negotiations brokered by Turkey, he replied that he would come to the negotiating table. The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, "knows my point of view," Zelenskiy said.

💬 "We talked about this before the war. I told him to put Putin at the negotiating table. ‘Can we please do this? We have to prevent a full-scale war.’ But [Erdogan] was not able to do that. Not only he – he's strong-but he's not able to do it. And now he thinks he can? "No we can't," he said.

Excludes cession of Ukrainian territory: Just days before the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Zelensky had given an interview to the BBC. In that interview, he ruled out any peace deal with Moscow that would include a cession of Ukrainian territory.

💬 "The Russian attacks are being carried out from different directions," he said at first, and expressed confidence that the new attack by the Russians had already begun. "We want security guarantees. Any territorial compromise would make us weaker as a state," he said of any future compromise with Moscow.

But at the same time, he believes Ukraine's forces can continue to resist Russia's advance until they can launch a counterattack, reiterating at this point his call for more military assistance from the West. "Of course, modern weapons accelerate peace. Weapons are the only language Russia understands,," the Ukrainian president told the BBC.

Disappointment in Kiev: Volodymyr Zelensky met with UK and EU leaders last week in a bid to boost international support and call for modern weapons to defend his country.

Kiev, as time goes on, is increasingly frustrated by the speed with which Western weapons are reaching its country. The deliveries of Tanks – promised last month by a group of Western countries including Germany, the US and the UK – are believed to still take a few weeks to reach the battlefield. At another point in the interview, the Ukrainian president threatened Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko – a close ally of Vladimir Putin-that if attacked, Ukraine would respond.

💬 "I hope that [Belarus] will not participate [in the war]," he said. "If it happens, we will fight and survive." Allowing Russia to use Belarus again as a staging post for an attack would be a "huge mistake," he added.

Volodymyr Zelensky was asked if he was surprised by Russia's tactics in the war and called them "worthless."

💬 "The way they destroyed everything... if their soldiers received [and executed] these orders, it means they share the same values." "Today, our survival is our unity," Zelensky said of how he believes the war will end. "I believe that Ukraine is fighting for its survival." "We chose this path. We want security guarantees. Any territorial compromise would make us weaker as a state," he said of any future compromise with Moscow.

And continued:

💬 "The question is with whom you agree with, Putin? - No. Because there is no trust. Dialogue with him? Because there is no trust," he concluded.
