Even if he comes to power, Trump will not end conflict in Ukraine

Nikolay Azarov warned that the US authorities will be doing their utmost to keep the conflict going

MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Former US President Donald Trump will not end the conflict in Ukraine even if he wins the election, as Washington seeks to deplete Russia’s resources, Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov (in office in 2010-2014) has said.

“I do not believe that if Trump comes to power, the conflict in Ukraine will stop. I don’t believe this. The ultimate end point is to exhaust Russia as much as possible. They have someone to use to implement this policy. The US will keep pressing for this as long as the current Kiev regime stays,” Azarov wrote on Facebook (banned in Russia; owned by Meta Corporation, recognized as extremist in Russia).

Azarov warned that the US authorities will be doing their utmost to keep the conflict going.

Earlier, Trump claimed that should he return to the White House, he could easily end the conflict in Ukraine within 24 hours. He did not rule out that Kiev would have to make territorial concessions. For his part, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said that he would explain to Trump in 24 minutes why the conflict could not be resolved in 24 hours. Later, Ukrainian media quoted sources as saying that Zelensky’s office was trying to organize a telephone conversation with Trump with the aim to persuade him to support the package of aid to Ukraine, which is being blocked in Congress by the former president’s Republican Party associates.
