The White House has denied a report by Swiss NZZ that CIA Director William Burns offered Ukraine and Russia to trade 20% of Ukraine’s territory in exchange for peace as part of a plan drawn up on behalf of President Joe Biden

Sean Davitt, the deputy spokesperson at the White House’s National Security Council, told Newsweek that the report is “not accurate,” and that the CIA would say the same, NewsWeek reported.

On 3 February, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also rejected as a “hoax” media reports that US CIA Director William Burns had traveled to Moscow with a secret peace proposal that involved Ukraine ceding a fifth of its territory to Russia, Reuters says.
