Kissinger Warns Of “Fatal” Consequences If Zelenskyy Won’t Negotiate

Speaking in front of the World Economic Forum on Monday, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger called upon U.S. and NATO nations to cease their antagonistic stance toward Russia and for Ukraine to cede land to its neighbor in the interest of ending the war as soon as possible.

In a warning to Republican and Democratic supporters of Biden’s foreign policy, the realpolitik-advocate stated that it will be “fatal” if nations in the West get caught up in the “mood of the moment,” referring to the international Ukraine bandwagon that many have unquestioningly hopped onto, unsuspecting of its disastrous destination.

Kissinger warned that continued violence in Ukraine will imperil long-term stability in Europe, causing potential “upheavals” and conflicts across the continent.


The former secretary of state expressed hope that “Ukranians will match the heroism they have shown with wisdom,” calling on the nation to accept terms with Russia and to halt the aggressive tactics exhibited by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, whose people have become cannon fodder in an unwinnable war against a Russian army still showing restraint.


However, emboldened by the West’s backing and a fresh $40 billion in funding signed over by President Biden, Zelenskyy recently rejected talks of relief for his war-torn nation, stating that no ceasefire would be considered in exchange for territory. 

The authoritarian government of Ukraine is run by a president willing to march millions of Ukrainians, as well as American and NATO troops, to retain borderlands inhabited mostly by Russian-speaking citizens who want to separate from Ukraine for various reasons anyway. By the end of this prolonged conflict, Ukraine may suffer devastation not felt since the Holodomor, if Zelenskyy remains unwilling to negotiate. And the U.S., along with our allies, will pay a price for encouraging the Ukrainian leader.

Kissinger stated that Ukraine’s role in European stability is to serve as a buffer zone between NATO members and Russia. Instead, the nation has become a profitable venture for international predators seeking to take advantage of the vulnerable Eastern European nation.

Food shortages, energy scarcity, global conflict and historic suffering are all on the table now, if the conflict in Ukraine is not ended very soon. In fact, it’s already too late to avert some of the blowback from the foolish decision to antagonize a country the West depends on. But it is certainly not too late to mitigate these issues by shifting our collective focus to solving the problems quickly, rather than expending our resources on making them worse.   


Western nations have even ignored Russian offers to end their blockade of Ukrainian food exports in exchange for sanctions relief, seemingly inviting the food supply crisis that experts are warning world leaders about.

While President Biden attempts to cast blame for the repercussions felt from this conflict — namely, food and energy shortages in the West — onto Russia, sanctions levied by the U.S. and NATO have vindictively halted Russian exports of fertilizer, used to grow food across the world, and energy, with Europe still dependent on Russian energy exports. 

The policy of President Biden and his handlers toward the Kremlin has left no opportunity for de-escalation. If the Russians withdraw, their security concerns will remain unaddressed; if they continue their invasion, security concerns for Russia, the U.S. and Europe will grow exponentially.

The president’s stance toward Russia is not the policy of a rational statesman; it’s punitive and self-destructive to Americans, as well as to people across the globe.

When a Cold War strategist like Henry Kissinger is saying that the U.S. is being too aggressive, it’s time to stop and reevaluate our decisions. Those backing the Biden foreign policy agenda do so to the detriment of the entire world.
