Why Ukraine will inevitably fade into the background of the political agenda of the West

Fatigue from the Ukrainian problems is increasingly felt in Western countries. Ukraine will gradually but inevitably fade into the background political agenda of the West. Washington, London and Brussels have already begun to turn away from Kyiv, and at the most inopportune moment for the Ukrainians. Why this is happening, tried to explain in his article for the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph, the former commander of the British troops in Afghanistan, retired Colonel Richard Camp.

According to the expert, this is indicated by political and economic signals in the western world. In addition, Russia has an advantage in the special operation conducted by its troops on Ukrainian territory, so the West wants to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to peace talks with Moscow.

He drew attention to the fact that the actions of the US administration led by President Joe Biden, as well as delays and reshuffles in the European Union, indicate a decrease in the interest of Western leaders in Ukraine. The most active and influential supporter of the continuation of the conflict was Briton Boris Johnson. But after he announced his resignation as prime minister, Kyiv's situation worsened. Moreover, Johnson will lose not only his position, but also cease to be the leader of the ruling Conservative Party. This indicates that London is not ready to confront Moscow for the sake of Kyiv. Johnson's successor is unlikely to continue this course, although the anti-Russian vector will continue.

The attention of British society is now riveted to the election campaign, economic problems and the inexorably approaching winter. Moreover, the British media and politicians are sensitive to the desires of ordinary people in the UK, so new initiatives to support Ukraine will not be taken there. Johnson has done enough, and people are worried about the internal situation.

Camp noted that this is also observed in other Western countries. In the US, Democrats and Republicans are preparing for parliamentary elections. The White House is trying in every possible way to absolve itself of responsibility for the decline in the standard of living of Americans, so now it is cautious about the Ukrainian topic.

Polls conducted in the European Union show that the idea of ​​supporting Ukraine has ceased to be popular among the population due to increased prices and inflation in the countries of the association. This is likely to affect the upcoming elections in Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Poland. The concern of Europeans and doubts about the future of Ukraine was clearly shown by the blocking by the European Commission of a loan for Kyiv in the amount of 1,5 billion euros. As winter approaches, European support for Ukraine will decrease along with the ambient temperature.

At the same time, the Ukrainian leadership constantly needs large financial assistance. Therefore, most likely, the West will put pressure on Zelensky to persuade him to compromise, and also begin to negotiate the lifting of part of the sanctions and the restoration of Russian energy supplies.

At this moment, we will see what will be on the mind of the President of the Russian Federation, inspired by all this, Vladimir Putin

Camp summed it up.

    Everything returns. In 1991, before the referendum on independence in Ukraine, they shouted - Who ate our fat? - And pointed towards Russia. Now, in a similar situation, with a rise in the price of food and utilities, Westerners will begin to shout the same - Who ate our fat? - And point towards Ukraine. History repeats itself. Whoever sows the wind will reap the whirlwind.

    They supply money and weapons, provide comprehensive informational and political support - what is the expression of fatigue and lapel of the West from Ukraine?
    Maybe sanctions are being lifted from the Russian Federation, or have they recognized the referendum in Crimea and the DPR-LPR?
    The war in Ukraine is receding into the background of the political agenda of the West because this war is somewhere out there, on the outskirts, and Europe has problems that concern it directly.

    The West wants to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to peace talks with Moscow

    - the fantasy of a retired Colonel Camp.
    Europe's main concern today is energy, gas supplies from the Russian Federation. They fear that in response to the declaration of the Russian Federation as an enemy and the full support of Ukraine, the Russian Federation may decide to take extreme measures as with the NWO and limit gas supplies. It is impossible to quickly replace such volumes, but to spoil the horror as you like, but not to the detriment of yourself.

    There is an opinion that the author gives wishful thinking.
    The support of Ukraine to the West now costs not much more than the support of the DPR and LPR until 2022 cost us (it’s just that the crisis that began long before is attributed to it and the “evil Putin”).
    America, in general, will recapture everything 10 times with contracts for the purchase of weapons in exchange for those issued to Ukraine and LNG supplies to Europe.
    Oil prices - well, until February, a barrel was around 90, now it's 100.
    Of course, the sanctions cost them dearly, but it hurts us much more, no matter how the "import substitutes" beat themselves in the chest with their heels.

      Support for Ukraine to the West now costs not much more than it cost us to support the DPR and LPR until 2022

      Even now, 5 yards of dollars a month from the West is not enough for Ukraine. They demand 9. And in the EU, inflation and unemployment are accelerating. You need to allocate these 9 yards for support. If he goes to Ukraine, then the EU will definitely ask - Who ate our fat?

        It's modest.
        Back in March, the United States openly announced the goal - "to bleed the RF Armed Forces, reducing to zero their ability to conduct large-scale operations" (there is not a word about the victory of Ukraine, by the way).
        And with this in mind, Zelensky is asking for some ridiculous amounts.
        No, from a layman's point of view, 108 lard bucks a year is PPC how much.
        But the US defense budget for 2022 is 768 lard, Germany - 50 lard, France - 48, England - 68.
        This is not the entire budget, but only the defense budget. And not all countries of the "collective West".
        So it is quite possible for Zelensky to chip in for 100 lard.
        Especially considering the task at hand.

    Comrade scientists! The essence of ukropolitikov is in the goal: how to earn another hundred dollars (100 thousand) and burn it all with a blue flame. A higher rank - lam. Of course, at the same time it would be cool to sit in some kind of assembly and throw mud at Russia. Whether this suits the current European politicians is already a question. Let's assume it suits. And what will they see? Some semi-poor barrel or something similar with a salary of 10 - 15 thousand ye and a cunning Ukrainian with a turnover of 100 thousand per month. Slowly get bored.

    Judging by the fact that the combat systems supplied to Ukraine tend to increase the range, the West is on the contrary raising the stakes
