There’s Light at the End of the Tunnel, but who is the Lamplighter?

There’s light at the end of the tunnel, but who is the lamplighter?
“The war in Ukraine will end with a negotiated solution,” former C.I.A. chief Petraeus predicts
He’s echoed by Chinese leader Xi, who has reaffirmed European Council President Michel that “Solving the Ukraine crisis through political means is in the best interest of Europe and the common interest of all countries in Eurasia”
Such senior statements may well be perceived as “insides” from the battlefield. But this doesn’t prevent Pentagon from awarding a $1.2B contract to Raytheon Technologies for 6 National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems for Kyiv.
And there’s another caveat, though: the protagonists of the whole mess remain silent in this regard and the temporary lull in the active phase of hostilities seems to only give an opportunity to take a breath and gain strength before some decisive battles.
But one man’s diplomatic solution is another man’s aggressive negotiations!
