Russia may offer Ukraine a "Korean scenario” for the completion of the special military operation. This scenario provides for the division of Ukraine and the loss of control over some of the territories.
According to Alexey Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, Moscow is considering several options for ending the conflict. One of them is the establishment of the new "38th parallel" — a dividing line similar to the one that divides Korea into two states.
"There is a certain kind of Ukrainians here and a certain kind of Ukrainians there. The Russians will now come up with anything. I know for sure that [this] is one of the options,” Danilov said, The Kommersant reports.
Korean politicians, who accepted such a scenario in 1953, later regretted their decision, Danilov added.
"They believe that a big mistake was made then, when they made those concessions. Today they have problems,” the secretary said.
Kremlin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that reports about Russia's alleged proposal to freeze the conflict in Ukraine on the basis of the Korean scenario were nothing but a hoax.
"This is not fair, no one talks about it. This is another hoax," Peskov said.
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said during a meeting with journalists that Kyiv could be Russia's ultimate goal in the special military operation in Ukraine
