Finnish PM Sanna Marin says Russia leaving Ukraine is 'only way out' …
Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has received widespread praise online for her candidness after she gave a blunt solution to ending the war in Ukraine.
At the EU summit in Prague on Friday (October 7) Marin was asked about comments made by US President Joe Biden about a possible "off-ramp" for Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.
"For the first time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat of the use of nuclear weapons if in fact, things continue down the path they are going," Biden said at a Democratic Party fundraiser in New York on Thursday (October 6).
“I’m trying to figure out what is Putin’s off-ramp?” he added, as per New York Post. “Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself in a position that he does not only lose face but lose significant power within Russia?”
When asked about Biden's comments, Marin gave a strong reply.
"The way out of this conflict is for Russia to leave Ukraine. That is the way out of the conflict. The exit from the conflict is when Russia leaves the territory of Ukraine," she said before walking away from the press.
