Ukraine rejects Kretschmer’s proposal for a ceasefire with Russia

6:19 PM: Ukraine has rejected the idea proposed by Michael Kretschmer, the Prime Minister of Saxony (CDU), for a ceasefire with Russia, potentially involving temporary territorial concessions. “If Ukraine accepts temporary territorial losses, Russian forces will advance closer to Germany and particularly to Saxony,” wrote the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kiev, Oleh Nikolenko, on Wednesday on Facebook. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is also well acquainted with Saxony from his time in Dresden.

Nikolenko recalled that both former Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) have tried to influence Putin. “Concessions on territories will inevitably lead to greater aggression from Russia, which will undoubtedly extend beyond the borders of Ukraine,” emphasized Nikolenko. Peace in Europe can only be achieved through a defeat of Moscow. The only possible “turnaround” is stronger German support for Ukraine. At the same time, Nikolenko thanked the federal government for the assistance provided so far.

Kretschmer suggests a “temporary” territorial concession for Ukraine

Wednesday, December 27, 6:46 AM: Michael Kretschmer, the Prime Minister of Saxony (CDU), has suggested to the Ukrainian government a temporary territorial concession for a ceasefire in the war against the Russian invasion troops. “It may be that, in a ceasefire, Ukraine will have to accept that certain territories are temporarily inaccessible to Ukraine,” said the deputy CDU federal chairman to the newspapers of the Funke Media Group on Wednesday.

“Not a single square meter of Ukrainian territory has become Russian,” emphasized Kretschmer. “But as in other major conflicts, it will take time here for a final solution.”

Kretschmer once again called on the federal government to not only supply weapons to Ukraine but also to take diplomatic initiatives. Allies are necessary to influence Russian President Vladimir Putin and make a ceasefire possible.

“Unfortunately, the federal government’s basic position is: We don’t want negotiations, only weapons deliveries,” the Prime Minister told the Funke newspapers. “The Americans are ahead in this regard. They have realized that the war cannot be won like this.”

A turnaround in Russia policy is necessary. “Russia is our neighbor. A dangerous, unpredictable neighbor,” said Kretschmer. “The idea of ​​weakening Russia militarily, politically, and economically to the point where it can no longer pose a threat to us is an attitude that comes from the 19th century. It lays the foundation for further conflicts.”

Kretschmer has faced criticism for his comments on the Ukraine war. In November, the CDU politician advocated “freezing” the conflict.

Casualties in Russian attack on railway station in Kherson

10:26 PM: Russia has carried out an attack on the railway station in Herson.Südukraine zufolge hat den Bahnhof der Stadt Cherson, wie aus Kiew verlautet, einen Angriff erlitten. Der ukrainische Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskyj berichtete, dass sich zum Zeitpunkt des Angriffs viele Zivilisten auf einen Evakuierungszug warteten. Die genaue Anzahl der Toten und Verletzten wird noch untersucht. Ihor Klymenko, der ukrainische Innenminister, teilte hingegen auf Telegram mit, dass ein getöteter Polizist und zwei weitere Verletzte zu beklagen seien. Die Behörden kündigten an, dass mehr als 100 Zivilisten nun mit Bussen aus der frontnahen Stadt evakuiert und in Sicherheit gebracht werden sollen.

Cherson fungiert als Hauptstadt des gleichnamigen Gebiets im Süden der Ukraine. Sie wurde kurz nach Kriegsbeginn vor fast zwei Jahren von russischen Truppen besetzt, allerdings ein paar Monate später von ukrainischen Kräften zurückerobert. Seitdem sind die Menschen in Cherson immer wieder heftigem Beschuss durch die russische Armee ausgesetzt, die weiterhin Gebiete auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite des Flusses Dnipro kontrolliert.

Ukrainischer Oberbefehlshaber gesteht Rückzug aus Marjinka ein

17.01 Uhr: Walerij Saluschnyj, der ukrainische Oberbefehlshaber, hat einen weitreichenden Rückzug seiner Truppen aus der vollkommen zerstörten Kleinstadt Marjinka im östlichen Gebiet Donezk zugegeben. Der General erklärte vor Journalisten in Kiew, dass sich die Streitkräfte im nördlichen Teil befinden und außerhalb von Marjinka neue Verteidigungslinien vorbereitet wurden. Einen Tag zuvor hatte der russische Verteidigungsminister Sergej Schoigu die Eroberung der Stadt, die seit Februar 2022 umkämpft war, verkündet.

Gleichzeitig äußerte Saluschnyj die Möglichkeit, dass es den russischen Truppen gelingen könnte, die nördlich von Donezk gelegene Stadt Awdijiwka in „zwei bis drei Monaten“ zu erobern. Er betonte, dass es wichtig sei, die Soldaten für eine mögliche spätere Rückeroberung aufzusparen, obwohl die Verteidigung so lange wie möglich aufrechterhalten werde.

Kiew wehrt seit mehr als 22 Monaten eine russische Invasion ab. Nach einer als weitgehend gescheitert geltenden ukrainischen Gegenoffensive haben die russischen Truppen zuletzt vor allem in der Ostukraine die Initiative zurückerlangt. Einschließlich der bereits 2014 durch Russland annektierten Halbinsel Krim steht fast ein Fünftel des ukrainischen Staatsgebiets unter russischer Kontrolle.
