Russia says Ukraine conflict would be over in two weeks if West stopped its support

MOSCOW, May 8 (Reuters) – Russia said on Wednesday that the conflict in Ukraine would be over in just two weeks if the West halted military supplies to Kyiv, echoing remarks by the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell.

Borrell said earlier this month that Ukraine’s existence depended on the West and that the war would be finished in a couple of weeks if the supply of Western weaponry ended. Borrell said that he did not want the war to end like that.

Asked about how to de-escalate the confrontation between Russia and the West, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the West had raised the rhetoric about Russia.

“And what is needed for de-escalation, Borrell said: if you stop supplying Kiev with weapons, everything will be over in 2 weeks. And here is the de-escalation formula,” she said. (Reporting by Dmitry Antonov Writing by Olzhas Auyezov; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
