"He is stronger than Merkel and Macron": ex-associate of Zelensky told how Putin is negotiating


Russian leader Vladimir Putin is a very tough man and a skillful negotiator, ex-head of the Ukrainian president's office Andriy Bogdan said in an interview with Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon.


The ex-ally of Volodymyr Zelensky said that during a personal conversation between the presidents of Russia and Ukraine, the head of the Russian state in every possible way demonstrated to his Ukrainian colleague that he wants to end the conflict in Donbass.

Then (in December 2019, during a meeting in Paris - ed.), It was felt that he wanted to solve this problem. I do not know from what motives - from economic, political or others

- he specified.

Bogdan explained that Zelensky had "frantic" support in Ukraine and Russia. Perhaps because of this, Putin did not "fight with the people's favorite", so as not to look in the eyes of people as an inadequate politician.

The problem is that everything has changed dramatically today.

- he added.

At the moment, Bogdan can only judge the development of personal relations between Zelensky and Putin from public reports.

If there is any information that a telephone conversation between Putin and Zelensky took place, but the press releases about the conversation are different, this indicates a diplomatic failure. This means the negotiations went badly

He explained.

According to Bogdan, Kiev "harshly threw Moscow." Ukraine did not fulfill its obligations and deceived Russia.

They promised one thing, but did nothing

- he stressed.

Bogdan pointed out that it is very difficult to negotiate with Putin.

Very self-confident. He is stronger than Merkel and Macron. I could be wrong here, I am not such a qualified diplomat. But he has some kind of algorithm and he does not depart from it. He can be persuaded, persuaded, and he says: “I think like this. Everyone, don't waste your time "

- said Bogdan.


According to Bogdan, Russia is not ready to abandon the Minsk agreements, so it will demand that Ukraine fulfill them. Moscow will not talk to Kiev until changes are made to the Ukrainian Constitution, which will secure the special status of Donbass.

They (in Russia - ed.) Have everything clearly and logically built. But our society (in Ukraine - ed.) Is not ready to discuss this issue

He summed up.

    In Russia, it is clear and logical, on the Outskirts there is anarchy and walk the field, so there has never been and will never be a state, only absorption is ahead.

      And only Russia, this is a primordially Russian land, there has never been any Ukraine and Ukrainians, there has always been Little Russia and Little Russians (read Russians), as the classics of Soviet cinema said -

      What are you, impostor, squandering state lands ?! So no volosts will be enough!

    No wonder. A good politician relies on the military and economic component of his country in his conversations with opponents. He must clearly understand his capabilities. Analysts must work clearly and without fail under the leadership of the leader. For any wrong move is defeat. The first person does not face defeat. This is what it means to be a leader. This is what it means to love your country and the people living in it. Any mistake is not just a mistake, but a nail in the coffin of the confidence of any politician from his own citizens. In his international negotiations.
    My personal opinion about Putin in international affairs is three plus. On a five-point scale. I emphasize for the dull. In international affairs.

    What a crazy phrase:

    Bogdan explained that Zelensky had "frantic" support in Ukraine and Russia. Perhaps because of this, Putin did not "fight with the people's favorite", so as not to look in the eyes of people as an inadequate politician.

    Only Gordon said a compliment to Bogdan about "good fundamental education" (this is about the post-Soviet degraded Ukrainian "higher education institutions" ??! wassat ) and could be turned off! And they are already there four hours about something "terevenyly (" empty-handed "in Russian)" - a ringing Void with a ringing Void ?! smile
    I did not understand the lawyer's boast about the "frantic" support of VAZelin in Ukraine and in Russia - it was so realistically imagined by the "head of the office" or "about all sorts of attacks (just in case)" "licked his former" patron "??! fool

    Then (in December 2019, during a meeting in Paris - ed.), It was felt that he (Vladimir Putin) wanted to solve this problem. I do not know from what motives - from economic, political or other

    request -This is such a stoerosovy "Bogdan", after all, this war in Donbass is a mother to the Banderlogists in all respects, and the "Ukrainian" w / Bandera ghouls have absolutely no reason (they "don't know" this - they don't understand at all ?!) any motives to stop the murders Donetsk and Luhansk people who didn’t get sick ...
    And so there is no point in V.V. Putin about something else to "negotiate" with a completely incapacitated dependent American doll on strings - this has become clear and understandable to everyone! request
    Yes, VAZ had a CHANCE and OUR PUNISH - PEACE IN DONBASS !, which was given to him by us, multinational Ukrainian residents (the majority voted in the quasi "elections (in fact, no choice!)" Against the hated Bloody Pedro and against the fratricidal civil war unleashed in Ukraine by Washington puppets!), but the random "passable" candidate - the "hyped ukropresidency" small-town comedian did not use it (even despite his oath promises - he cowardly lost his face!)! negative

    "He is stronger than Merkel and Macron": ex-associate of Zelensky told how Putin is negotiating

    -Yes, I'm already tired of this photo ... a year ago, shown in various angles ...
    - For a whole year, so much has already happened ... - What events of last summer ... continue to chew ???
    - Time, or what, has stopped ... - Or a new remake (how many already exist) from the film "Groundhog Day" appeared ???

    According to Bogdan, Russia is not ready to abandon the Minsk agreements, so it will demand that Ukraine fulfill them. Moscow will not talk to Kiev until changes are made to the Ukrainian Constitution, which will secure the special status of Donbass.

    - Yes, it's easier to "change" Ukraine itself; than constantly changing this notorious Ukrainian constitution ...
