The Swiss-German newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) reports that Joe Biden offered Russian President Vladimir Putin 20% of Ukraine in exchange for a peace treaty. The offer was made by CIA Director William Burns during a top-secret trip to Moscow in January.
The White House is denying the specific “land for peace” offer was made but won’t deny some kind of peace offer wasn’t put forward. The story cited “high level German officials” as sources.
Both Kyiv and Moscow reportedly rejected the proposal.
The 20% offer of Ukraine’s territory is significant. It’s about the size of the disputed Donbas region in eastern Ukraine that Russia says it annexed last September. The region has a majority Russian population and is currently ravaged by civil war.
