The New York Times has published terms of surrender to Russia in an op-ed from the RAND Corporation. They call the op-ed "Rapprochement with Russia?" (HERE )

The word " rapprochement" means "the development of friendlier relations between countries or groups of people who have been enemies". That is not what the RAND Corporation, the New York Times, the US and Kiev have in mind as Russian and Ukrainian Christmas Eve approaches on January 6th.

Here are RAND Corporation's terms: Russia has to stop trying to destabilize Ukraine; give up nationalism and foreign adventures; stop violating the Minsk Agreement (HERE ) ; and stop threatening the Baltic States, Poland and the West.

In exchange, according to RAND Corporation, NATO would continue to build up troops on Russia's eastern flank for Europe's security; Ukraine would have to say that it is not ready for membership in NATO until later; the West would have to give more aid to Ukraine; and Washington might have to gradually start easing sanctions against Russia.

The RAND Corporation op-ed goes on to say that: "We think this package would offer Russia a brighter economic future along with recognition of Russia's enduring importance to the West."

The authors of this Orwellian op-ed in the New York Times are Hans Binnendijk, Christopher Chivvis and Olga Olikerdec of the RAND Corporation. The RAND Corporation are the same folks that brought President Poroshenko a prescription for genocide in Donbass. (HERE )

Somehow, I don't think Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to surrender just yet. So what is the purpose of this RAND Corporation "peace plan"? It is anybody's guess. But the New York Times thinks it is important enough to run this op-ed for several days. The same op-ed has also been running in the International New York Times and the Kyiv Post. (HERE )

One might reasonably guess that this insulting plan is a preliminary warning of things to come. My guess is that the US and Ukraine are about to launch a bloodier war.
