Senior former German army and NATO General Hans-Lothar Domrose had given a prediction over the ceasefire over the war in 2023. He told the newspapers of the German Funke media group that both countries will run into a settlement this summer because they will feel that fighting is no longer of any use and that will be the moment of ceasefire negotiations. He has also said that the only way to end the conflict is through a negotiated agreement acceptable to both sides and a solution for Zelenskyy to waive Kyiv’s demand to immediately integrate Crimea into Ukraine instead of agreeing to a transition period of 50 years.
