"US President Joe Biden should return to diplomacy to prevent the defeat of Ukraine and avoid a conflict with Russia."

APA reports that retired officer David Paine says about this in his column for the American publication "The National Interest".

The former officer of the US army recalled that Russia declared its readiness to hold peace talks with Kiev, but Vladimir Zelensky refused the meeting.

Pain believes that the probability of Ukraine seizing new territories is minimal, and that even an increase in the supply of Western weapons will not be enough to change the situation.

The West has only one way to avoid defeating Ukraine on the battlefield and avoid a nuclear conflict with Russia over the next few months: a return to diplomacy.
