Re: Gilbert Doctorow: Seymour Hersh, Anatol Lieven and the desperate DC gambit to end hostilities
One could alternatively see this as a form of public diplomacy, outlining the West's 'surrender terms' for the Russians, what they, as an opening gambit, are prepared to offer the Russians to avoid total defeat and humiliation.
These stories. what the West is 'offering' seem remarkably similar to the peace negotiations agreed to at the start of the conflict, between Russia and Ukraine; but were scuttled by Washington and London.
However, there's no mention of the biggest Russian demand, the total 'de-Nazification' of Ukraine.
