quotes Transatlantic Relations Program Nonresident Senior Fellow Adrian Karatnycky
on the ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine:
In terms of a sort of practical relationship, it seems to me those might be the contours of some kind of agreement, which over time could be acceptable to the Ukrainian side,” said Adrian Karatnycky, an expert on Ukraine at the Atlantic Council of the United States.
At the moment, with public tensions running high and Ukrainian parliamentary elections seven weeks away, it may be difficult to reach a deal before the cease-fire crumbles.
“Right now, no Ukrainian official will say this is acceptable,” Mr. Karatnycky said.
