The "signals" from the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin regarding purported readiness for negotiations with Ukraine may be aimed at obstructing further military assistance to the Ukrainian army from the West, the Center for Countering Disinformation reports.

The Center noted that the longer the war lasts, the more Russia weakens economically, technologically, and demographically. The aggressor country becomes increasingly technologically dependent on China in many directions that will shape the future economy. Continuing the war for a couple of years will strengthen this process.

The "signal" from Russia could be made to obstruct further military assistance to Ukraine's Armed Forces from the West. It could also be an attempt to boost ratings for Trump, who is ready to "give away" part of Ukrainian territory to Putin," the Center noted.

Additionally, it is essential not to forget that Russia is playing the "peace" game, investing more in the military-industrial complex and building up the army's manpower.

According to the Center for Countering Disinformation, American journalists recruited during their work in Russia wrote an article in The New York Times about Putin's readiness for negotiations.


Recently, The New York Times reported, citing sources, that the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin allegedly sends "signals" to the West expressing a desire to freeze the war in Ukraine and start negotiations.

According to two former high-ranking Russian officials close to the Kremlin and American and international officials, Putin proposes freezing hostilities along the current lines. Putin also reportedly sent similar signals a year earlier in the fall of 2022.

What the Main Intelligence Directorate says

According to the representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Andrii Yusov, Moscow does want a quick end to the war, despite Russian propaganda statements. Ukraine also wants this but on its own terms and by international law.

"Of course, they want to end the invasion as soon as possible. Another matter is on what terms. From the standpoint of Ukrainian interests and international law, Russia is a criminal and must be punished. Ukraine, of course, is interested in ending this genocidal war but with the restoration of our territorial integrity and the punishment of criminals," he said.

The representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine also noted that similar publications in the Western press need to be monitored and analyzed, conclusions drawn, and explanations provided about the interests behind them. However, such materials also demonstrate that the West has not forgotten about Ukraine.
