If Zelenskyy resists the pressure from his opponents [who are protesting against the adoption of the Steinmeier formula], a long-term bloody conflict in Donbas will come to a halt and the Baltic States will lose their main friend [Ukraine] in their Russophobic interests.
When we [Russia] at some point started to believe in peace, the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry suddenly came out and unexpectedly declared: “If not peace, then we have a plan B. And this plan B is war.”
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine. No evidence is given to Ukraine's belligerent stance.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that the authorities have action plans in case something goes wrong during the implementation of the Steinmeier Formula. He didn't claim that Ukraine's plan B is war. "If this plan does not work, then we have to understand that we have fewer options, we have the last plan, plan B. How to make less movements across our border, which is now de facto established, and in fact, it's just part of our territory, of the terrorists who blew up cars in Kyiv", said Prystaiko.
