If he wins the election, Donald Trump would allegedly hand over the occupied Ukrainian territories to Vladimir Putin. The following is a reaction from Kiev to a report.

Update from July 4, 3:45 p.m.: Kiev has reacted to a report that the American Republican Donald Trump wants to offer Moscow the areas of Ukraine occupied by the Russian army if he becomes US president again and Kremlin autocrat Vladimir Putin is ready to negotiate peace. As the English-language news channel of the Polish Telewizja Polska, TVP World, writes on its website, the Ukrainians are in no way prepared to make such a compromise for a possible peace.

According to the report, a high-ranking Ukrainian official said in response to recent comments by the Republican presidential candidate that his country was not prepared to compromise with Russia or cede territory to end the bloody conflict. According to Andriy Yermak, chief of staff of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, basic values ​​such as territorial integrity and sovereignty are “non-negotiable” for Kiev. Yermak traveled to Washington ahead of the NATO summit (July 9-11) and commented on Trump’s alleged idea for a peace offer to Putin’s Kremlin regime.

Trump’s offer to Putin? Explosive US report on the Ukraine war

In the 2024 US election, the new (or old) President of the United States will be elected on November 5th of this year. The 78-year-old Trump, who was the 45th President of the USA from 2017 to 2021, will run again for the Republicans, probably against incumbent Joe Biden (Democrats).

Trump should consider, writes Politico, offering Putin the renunciation of NATO membership by both Ukraine and Georgia in return for peace negotiations – and this should go against the decision-makers in Kyiv and Tbilisi.

Ukraine and Georgia: Donald Trump is said to be planning a deal with Vladimir Putin

As two unnamed Republican national security experts told the news magazine, if he wins the election, Donald Trump also reportedly wants to negotiate with Vladimir Putin about how much Ukrainian territory Moscow could keep.

And with the tolerance of Washington, which is considered Kyiv’s most important ally and arms supplier under Biden. An alleged pacification of the Ukraine war is said to play a key role in Trump’s NATO plans if the controversial real estate tycoon is again given the highest office in the United States by voters. According to the report, the USA would not leave the defense alliance under him, but an eastward expansion of NATO as a security guarantee for Ukraine and Georgia would therefore be off the table (for now).

Selenskyj sends message from Ukraine to Donald Trump

Trump has repeatedly claimed in the past that he would end the war in Ukraine within 24 hours. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj has now demanded clarity from him about how the Republican intends to achieve this. “If Trump knows how to end this war, he should tell us today,” Zelenskyj said in an interview with Bloomberg TV. “If there are risks to Ukraine’s independence, if we lose our statehood – we want to be prepared for that, we want to know that.”

In the interview, Zelenskyj declared himself willing to meet with Trump and his team and listen to their suggestions. “We want to understand whether we will have the powerful support of the USA in November (after the US election in 2024, ed.) or whether we will be alone then,” said the Ukrainian head of state. In Kyiv and within the military alliance NATO, there are considerable concerns that if Trump wins the election, he could stop arms deliveries and aid payments to Ukraine, which has been invaded by Putin’s regime and which, for its part, is desperate to become a member of NATO.
