Politico.eu: Any Russian call for cease-fire ‘completely meaningless’, says UK’s Sunak 

UK prime minister says Kremlin must step back from ‘conquered territory’ before any real peace talks can start. 

The West should consider any Russian call for a cease-fire in its war against Ukraine “completely meaningless” in the current circumstances, U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said Monday. 

Speaking in Riga during a summit of leaders of the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF), a military alliance of 10 Northern European countries, Sunak warned Russia would only use a halt in hostilities as an opportunity to regroup its forces. 

“We must be clear that any unilateral call for a cease-fire by Russia is completely meaningless in the current context,” he said. “I think it would be a false call.”
