Wat als een regelrechte overwinning voor Oekraïne onhaalbaar blijkt? Oorlogsdagboek Robert Serry, deel 6

November 21, 2022 - Nu Cherson is heroverd en de Oekraïense troepen terrein winnen, doemt de vraag weer op wat voor Oekraïne een aanvaardbaar einde van de oorlog zou zijn. Robert Serry besprak het in Kyiv met zijn contacten. "De vraag ligt zo gevoelig dat niemand openlijk durft te twijfelen over de afloop."
