Ukraine’s president is claiming that the West’s support for Ukraine is waning. “If partners do not help us, it means they will help Russia to win,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated.
Zelensky believes that Western voters will not forgive their leaders if they “lose Ukraine.” But he forgets that voters are literally the definition of insanity:
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein
Voters are content with being controlled, so putting faith in anyone who wants to use the state to commit violence against others is already in a mental state in which they are easily dictated to by a master or ruler, is insane. But Zelensky just needs more aid to maintain his mansions and lifestyle while he sends others off to die.
Further trouble may also come from the millions of Ukrainian refugees now residing in foreign nations. They have generally “behaved well,” but if the hosts “drive these people into a corner,” the end result will not be “a good story” for Europe, the president added.
In an interview with The Economist, Zelensky complained about weakening support from senior Western officials, which he claimed to have seen in their eyes during meetings. “I see that he or she is not here, not with us” contrary to spoken assurances, he said, according to the interview published on Sunday.
The Ukrainian ruler also said he is “morally” ready for a long war with Russia, but this will require the country to switch to a “totally militarized economy.” He added that now is “a bad moment” for peace talks with Russia, due to the lackluster battlefield progress over the three months of Kyiv’s summer ‘counter-offensive’. Moscow has estimated Ukrainian losses during the push at over 66,000 troops and 7,600 heavy weapons, according to a report by RT.
The Ukrainian president also appeared to take credit for the drone attacks deep inside Russian territory, which Kiev formally refuses to claim as its own. Explaining his strategy, he said public support for the Russian government will fall “because our drones will land.” –RT
