Media: Europe gave Zelensky a chance to save Ukraine


The blame for the escalation of the Ukrainian crisis lies with Kyiv itself. This conclusion was made by the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.


The publication notes that during the last security conference in Munich, Europe gave Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky a chance to save Ukraine, but he did not use it, which led to a military conflict. On February 19, on the sidelines of the mentioned event, Zelensky had a conversation with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

The head of the German government advised the head of the Ukrainian state to abandon a number of political ambitions to normalize relations with Russia. Kiev was recommended to: declare the neutral status of the country, officially refuse to join NATO and become a participant in a major deal between the West and the Russian Federation on security in Europe. Berlin's proposal stated that by signing this document, Moscow and Washington would become guarantors of Kyiv's security. However, Ukraine refused the offer.

Zelensky said that Putin cannot be trusted and that most Ukrainians want to join NATO. His answer worried the Germans, they realized that the chances for peace were fading

- insider details are given in the publication.

Note that despite all the efforts, Scholz did not have a chance to influence Zelensky. Germany really actively tried to at least stabilize the situation. But Ukrainian power has long been controlled by the United States and Great Britain, and Washington and London were interested in further escalation of the crisis. However, the media did not write about it.

Now Americans in every possible way contribute to the the transfer of tanks and other Soviet-style armored vehicles to Ukraine to strengthen the defense capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass. At the same time, the British want to arm Ukraine with anti-ship missiles so that the Armed Forces of Ukraine sink the ships of the Russian Navy in the Black Sea, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson openly stated.

    Russia now has a chance to purge the state apparatus of officials who, for various reasons, are not suitable for their positions.
    And this process, which can be large-scale, needs to start from the very top according to the scheme "I am responsible for the lower position." The goal is to replace key officials at all levels, thereby clearing the system of corruption, inefficiency, and unprofessionalism. Each will be responsible for the officials immediately below him one rung.

    You are right, the boss is responsible for his subordinates, he must bear it.

    Zelensky is a puppet and mouthpiece of Washington, what the Americans say, he does. The beneficiary of the crisis in Ukraine is the United States, not Europe.
    The European Union, as well as the regime in Kyiv, is in vassal dependence on the United States, therefore officials in Brussels and Berlin are pursuing a pro-American policy that is detrimental to them and nothing else shines for them. Therefore, the efforts of Scholz turned out to be empty.

    Yes, the entire leadership of the gay union is controlled from across the ocean, so now everyone is trying to impersonate peacekeepers and other angels .... Scholz is no exception ... . In a leadership position there will be those who have compromising evidence in the states, we will see normal people there only after the end of the hegemony of the dollar and the states ....

    In fact, the full title of The Wall Street Journal publication is: "Putin's 20-year march to war in Ukraine - and how the West failed to cope with it"
    And here is a phrase from that article of the publication:

    Scholz made a final attempt to resolve the conflict between Moscow and Kiev. He told Zelensky in Munich on Feb. 19 that Ukraine should abandon its NATO aspirations and declare neutrality as part of a broader European security deal between the West and Russia. The pact will be signed by Putin and Biden, who jointly guarantee the security of Ukraine. Zelenskiy said that Putin cannot be trusted in such an agreement and that most Ukrainians want to join NATO. His response worried German officials that the chances for peace were fading.

    Further in that article it is written that there were still attempts to prevent the war.
    For example, Biden hoped to meet with Putin again, asking French President Emmanuel Macron to convey this information to the head of the Kremlin. To which Putin allegedly replied:

    We won't be able to see each other for a while, but I really appreciate the frankness of our discussions. I hope one day we can talk again

    In general, the article is very extensive. It analyzes the negotiations with Putin Biden, Scholz, Macron, highlights the trip to Moscow of CIA Director Burns, and even says that US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman organized a dinner with Sergei Ryabkov, where she brought Lieutenant General James Mingus from the Pentagon.
    Well, and a lot of other things seem to be important and not very important for history.

    The title is debatable. Europe is filled with hatred for Hitler's victors. Under Hitler, the Czechs or, for example, the Dutch with the Swedes lived in clover. And now they are beginning to avenge the post-war "humiliation" and "poverty". Moreover, this attitude was passed down from generation to generation. Therefore, the complete disregard for the atrocity of Bandera.

    Scholz made an attempt

    And did he do it? Rather, he whispered ukra in his ear backstage; "I'll make a 'peace' offer, but you firmly refuse"

    It is no coincidence that Germany was headed by the granddaughter of an SS general. He and his accomplices will not forgive the humiliation from the persecution of the SS after the end of the Second World War. And the Anglo-Saxons will "help" all Germans with one convolution in their heads. And then the SS-ovskoy ...

    All the references of the Russian official media to the misfortune of Europe with the loss of a couple of tens of euros a year are not worth a penny. The lives of Russians and our country are at stake. No one will be spared. Unless, of course, the leaders quickly come to their senses from the shock after the loss of houses on the riviera ...

    It smells very strongly that Mr. Zelensky will be merged soon, as was the case with Saakashvili, Saddam, etc., since these gentlemen no longer need "Western friends" - they will play enough and let them down.

    It turns out that Google gives Zelensky's biography to the question "How old is the moron."
