Of course they are. They will do anything to keep Ukraine as a MIC cash cow. An armistice with no peace treaty enables a constant state of readiness for renewed war, which means more profits for the MIC. The parallel you draw with Korea is a valid one.

Unfortunately for them, Putin knows this. It's not as if Russia doesn't have a border with Korea, after all. Russia doesn't have to accept an armed outpost of the US Empire in Ukraine like the USSR and China did in Korea in 1953. A lot has changed in 70 years, but the Financial Times isn't ready to admit that yet.
