WASHINGTON, May 17. /TASS/. A group of European countries led by Poland is urging Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to end the conflict, US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh wrote on his website.
"This group is led by Poland <...>. It has been quietly urging Zelensky to find a way to end the war - even by resigning himself, if necessary,’ Hersh noted.
According to him, the group comprises the Baltic nations and Eastern European countries, including Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
Hersh added that the Ukrainian president "is not budging" and "is beginning to lose the private support of his neighbors."
The US journalist said earlier, citing his sources, that Ukraine was in a difficult situation and the duration of the conflict depended only on the number of Ukrainian lives that Zelensky was willing to sacrifice. Hersh added that the conflict continued because US President Joe Biden "decided to win in Ukraine."
On February 8, Hersh wrote in an article, citing a source, that US Navy divers, with the assistance of Norwegian specialists, had planted explosive devices under the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines with the assistance of Norwegian specialists under the cover of the BALTOPS exercise in June 2022. According to Hersh, US President Joe Biden made the decision to conduct the operation following nine months of consultations with national security officials.
