Ukraine’s Zelensky Blasts Henry Kissinger over Proposal to “Appease” Russia

HeadlineMay 26, 2022

In Ukraine, fierce fighting continues to rage around the besieged industrial city of Severodonetsk, where sustained Russian artillery attacks this week have killed at least six civilians. Russian forces are also advancing on the city of Lyman in the southeastern Donetsk region. On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky blasted Henry Kissinger, after the former U.S. secretary of state said Ukraine should trade some of its territory for a peace agreement with Russia. Zelensky compared Kissinger’s proposal to the appeasement of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “Mr. Kissinger emerges from the deep past and says that a piece of Ukraine should be given to Russia so that there is no alienation of Russia from Europe. It seems that Mr. Kissinger’s calendar is not 2022, but 1938, and he thought he was talking to an audience not in Davos, but in Munich of that time.”
