Zelenskyy Now Surrounded By Predicaments – OpEd


By White Mountain

The domestic political situation in Ukraine is becoming increasingly unfavorable for Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada representative Oleksandr Dubinsky had his residence raided by the SBU for making derogatory remarks about Zelenskyy and his chief of staff Andriy Yermak. This indicates that Zelenskyy’s standing in the country is highly sensitive. Various political forces may hope that in next year’s Ukrainian elections, Zelenskyy will have an opportunity to step down “normally”, thus opening the door to negotiations with Russia.

The vulnerability and growing unreliability of the European Union are evident. EU official Josep Borrell warns Ukraine that ammunition is limited. Borrell, the EU’s top diplomat, states that the bloc “might not meet the delivery target of one million shells for Ukraine”. The EU has already provided Ukraine with over 300,000 shells. In contrast, Russia has just acquired one million shells from North Korea.

Due to the EU’s fragile performance, it is now almost certain that Ukraine will lose all its “dependencies” – the EU, NATO, and Poland – unless the United States shows impressive leadership. In this situation, it is worrisome to consider whether Ukraine might resort to some “out-of-the-box” actions, such as causing a massive nuclear leak in Europe, leading to a collective disaster for all.
