Most conflicts end with negotiations. However, Russia is not serious about real negotiations now.

About it in the interview PBS said CIA Director William Burns.

“We do not believe that the Russians are serious about real negotiations now”he noted.

According to Burns, the CIA sees a decrease in the pace of hostilities in Ukraine with the onset of winter.

“The Russian army is now very tattered. The Ukrainian military is determined to continue exerting pressure, to develop its combat successes of the past few months. But they also need time to regroup and restock.” – he said.

But the number of Putin’s attacks on Ukraine’s civilian population and infrastructure has not decreased at all, he added.

Burns also said that Putin’s war in Ukraine has so far been a failure for Russia: the army has performed poorly and suffered huge losses, and the economy has suffered long-term damage. According to him, the population of the Russian Federation is also increasingly worried about the price of war.

As for the rattling of nuclear weapons, the CIA sees no clear signs of plans to use tactical nuclear weapons by Russia.

We will remind you that President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that he is ready for negotiations with Russia. But the aggressor must free all occupied territories.

The Kremlin previously stated that “there is no question” of the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine by the end of this year.
