We outline a Peace-plan for Ukraine. The governing thought is: Ukraine sells territory to Russia for a fair price, like Russia has sold Alaska to the US. For other thoughts on peace-plans see time and euromaidanpress.
Nobody can win this war. The longer it takes, the more all sides loose:
As a consequence
It follows, that the conflict is perpetuated, and the most likely outcome is ongoing war, ongoing suffering, ongoing sanctions, worsening climate-crisis. We have seen since 2014 that without a proper resolution to the conflict, this war is perpetuated. And all experts believe that an endless conflict is the most likely outcome: the German ISPK, the Institute for the Study of War, see also ukraine-conflict-updates and criticalthreats.org.

There is only one solution to this dilemma: Ukraine sells occupied territory to Russia for a fair price and Russia pays reparations for the damages of the war. This has the following advantages:
We envision the following details of such a Peace-plan
Pricing - a fair price for territory means valuation of the territory including all infrastructure as it was before Russia destroyed it - a fair price for reparations includes all costs of the war for Ukraine: the cost of the military operations, the cost for rebuilding all destroyed infrastructure and. yes, a cost per capita killed and a cost per capita or injured
Russian ownership of new territory is delayed and Sanctions
against Russia remain in place until - Russia has payed all its
depths, the decision for this with is with a Swiss-based trust
- all suspects for war crimes have been sent to La Hague or have permanently left Russia or are deceased meanwhile, the decision for this is in La Hague
Except from these sanctions are - Russian energy and raw material exports from which Russian debts are paid - technology imports to Russia that build-up massive renewable energy and renewable energy infrastructure (unless military dual-use)
All payments for Russian energy and raw material exports to sanctioning countries are handled via a Swiss-based trust committee. The cash-flow is divided into three percentage parts according to a Peace-plan agreement - one part flows to Ukraine - a portion goes to pay for renewable energy technology imports through the Swiss-based trust committee - one part flows to Russia
Agreements for Alliance memberships - Russia accepts that Ukraine becomes a member of the EU: with a perspective for a own renewable future this is not longer a thread to Russia - Ukraine accepts that it will not become member of the NATO: after having successfully fighting back Russia and with the new massive cash-flow replacing its military costs it does not need the NATO
Recommended further agreements - to prevent civil war in the new territory we recommend that Russia only buys territory where it expects that a fair referendum of the inhabitants will vote pro Russia - to speed-up the process of re-civilization we that Russia submits to the jurisdiction of The Hague and extradites suspects of war crime to The Hague. The same applies to the US.
Why should he not? Because some Ukrainians might not like the idea of selling territory to Russia? Demand a reasonable price and ensure that all displaced people receive adequate compensation. A hero like Selenskyj need not be afraid of the next election! Even if he would not be elected, he would be remembered for all eternity as the savior of Ukraine.
