The conflict in Ukraine needs an immediate international intervention for which the most logical way would be reaching a new ceasefire, and allowing UN peacekeeping force to the country. Of course, provided that Russia is not going to veto the decision in the UN Security Council. This step would end the violence and Ukraine’s further losses of any territory.
Nonetheless, the probability is not great due to Russia’s wish to weaken Ukraine as long as that country abandons moving towards European Union.
If it would be possible to end the violence, only then there would be ground to conduct political negotiations to end the conflict so that Ukraine could be free to make its own choices for the future.
Creating a permanent mission of the European Union would also contribute to relieving the situation, however, Russia would probably not allow the mission to its occupied territories.
Hence, the foreign ministers of European Union need to make new explicit decisions this thursday in order to influence Russia to stop their new, large-scale attacks in Ukraine.
