Sustainable peace in Ukraine could be ensured by NATO peacekeeping mission - Kaczyński

NATO's peacekeeping mission can guarantee peace in Ukraine on Kyiv's terms.

That’s according to Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Jarosław Kaczyński, who spoke with residents of Kielce in southern Poland, Ukrinform reports with reference to Radio Poland.

Answering the question of what the conditions are for Ukraine's victory in the war with Russia, Kaczynskiy emphasized that, in military terms, Kyiv should receive very serious assistance in the form of artillery and reconnaissance equipment.

"Ukraine needs weapons, and there are some problems with that," the PiS leader noted.

Touching on the military and political aspects of Ukraine's victory in the war with the Russian Federation, he emphasized that he tied this with the introduction of the NATO peacekeeping mission in Ukraine.

"If we want peace to be truly ensured and on conditions worthy of Ukraine, then it won’t do without the introduction of a NATO peacekeeping mission. Will it happen? If someone knows the details of these cases – and I do – then they understand that it is not ruled out, but also rather unlikely," Kaczynski stated.

He did not rule out that Russia's war against Ukraine will drag for a long time or it will be frozen with or without a ceasefire.

"I’d like to emphasize that this peacekeeping mission won’t be there to fight with the Russians... This mission is to tell the Russians: everything’s over," the PiS leader emphasized.

In his opinion, Russians stand no chance in direct confrontation with Ukrainians, as their moral and psychological condition is much worse.

As reported, during the joint visit of the Prime Ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia to Kyiv on March 15, the then Deputy Prime Minister of Poland for Security Affairs Jarosław Kaczyński voiced the idea of ​​introducing a NATO peacekeeping contingent to Ukraine. After that, he reiterated a few more times that this option should remain on the agenda. Kaczyński’s proposal has not yet found support among NATO allies.

In lateJune, Kaczynski resigned from the post of Deputy Prime Minister for Security Affairs, which he had held since October 2020. Due to Kaczyński’s active role, the law on the protection of the fatherland was passed in Poland, providing for doubling the number of military servicemen to 300,000, and increasing the nation’s 2023 defense budget to 3% of GDP.
