Zelensky drew another "last line" in negotiations with Russia

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, in his traditional evening address to the nation, outlined the future "trial" in Mariupol of Ukrainian prisoners of war as a line after which Ukraine will completely abandon negotiations with Russia.

Kyiv uses such blackmail for the third time. For the first time, similar conditions were put forward by the office of the head of the Ukrainian state during the fall of the defense of Mariupol, demanding the release of the "defenders" of the city. The second time the technique was used in an attempt to cancel the referenda in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, as well as in the DLNR. For the third time, Zelensky began to blackmail with negotiations, drawing the “final line” on August 21.

In Mariupol, scenery and cages are being prepared for an absolutely nasty and absurd trial of Ukrainian defenders, of our soldiers who are in captivity

Zelensky says.

He promises that the reaction of the Ukrainian state will be absolutely understandable and unambiguous. If, nevertheless, the announced show trial takes place, if the criminals "in violation of all agreements, international rules are taken to these cells," then this will be "the line after which any negotiations are impossible." Russia will “cut itself off” from negotiations, Zelensky believes.

Obviously, Kyiv is trying to take advantage of Russia's interest in the negotiations. Having outlined the “last” line for Moscow, and several “red lines” for himself, Zelensky uses the tactics of undisguised blackmail, using theatrical skills of acting out drama and suggestion. Be that as it may, for the internal Ukrainian mass "use" the technique works. However, evening video messages are not designed for anything else.

    Zelensky is a stupid person, even though he is a Jew.
    Negotiate something with him, do not respect yourself.
    There cannot and should not be any negotiations - only the complete and unconditional surrender of the Saloreich.
    Without this, neither complete demilitarization nor denazification is possible.
    Taking a machine gun from a monkey, but leaving a grenade for it, will not lead to good.
    Speaking of denazification.
    Denazification can be understood as getting rid of the Nazis, but it can also be understood as getting rid of the nation, that is, from the bearers of the Ukrainian idea.
    And you can understand both the first and second in one dish. And it is right.
    Neither Nazis, carriers of Nazi ideology, nor Ukrainianism, the ideology of anti-Russianness, should remain on the territory of the former Ukraine.

    When the Russian Armed Forces were standing near Kyiv, Zelensky was sitting in a Polish basement and no one dared to shell the territory of Russia. Now Zelensky openly welcomes European tourists in Kyiv and mocks Russia. He believes that his ultimatums to Russia will work if Moscow still wants to negotiate peace with him. Well, there will be Minsk - 3, and during this time Ukraine will rearm and with new forces will bomb Russia and arrange new terrorist attacks in its cities. And then they call him a clown? A clown is good if for half a year (unlike France in 1940) he holds out against the RF Armed Forces and even arranges attacks on the Headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.
    By the way, yesterday the main Ukrainian Tatar, Chubarov, let slip that drones to Sevastopol could well have been launched from Crimean yayls, such as Ai-Petri. (Yayla is a high mountain plateau). And it is quite possible to do this, because there is a passage yard.

      Tightening the NWO is a clear strategic miscalculation, if not a crime. The Russian Federation uses only PART of its potential and capabilities, and this is during the hostilities, the delays with the strategic defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine created many additional problems with the supply of weapons, the training of the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by NATO instructors, the supply of intelligence data and the adjustment of the strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ... Such an SVO is clearly for the Russian Federation is contraindicated ...

    He is so determined that if Russia fights incorrectly, he will give up the war altogether and leave, leaving Ukraine to the mercy of fate.

    no matter how hard Western curators try to manage the Kyiv monkey house, nothing comes of it. Take at least the topic "negotiations".

    Russia, immediately after the start of the NWO, took a position that allows for negotiations, providing itself with freedom of action and decisions, where the willingness to negotiate does not look like a weakness.

    Kyiv, after being ordered to reject the agreement in Istanbul, made this refusal an absolute - no negotiations! Let's settle everything on the battlefield! Thus, driving yourself into the first dead end. Looking around, a month later I had to roll back - negotiations only when there is a strong negotiating position! What is already a recognition of the impossibility of achieving the declared goal of "total victory".

    But here again, failure, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are also unable to provide a strong negotiating position. At the same time, the pressure of the West is growing - start your counter-offensive in order to finally start negotiations against the background of "successes", otherwise winter is already close and the burghers are nervous. They pumped up the topic of counter-offensive to secure a negotiating position and were quickly forced to deflate the bubble, because the reality on the battlefield is no longer just different from the information picture in Ukraine, the reality has become the exact opposite of the picture in the media.

    Now the negotiations for Kyiv are the recognition of the impossibility of securing a strong negotiating position, which is essentially an admission of defeat. At the same time, Kyiv's refusal to negotiate against the backdrop of military defeats and a demonstration of its inability to rectify the situation will increase pressure. More and more it will seem that the Kyiv regime continues the war only for its own survival. Russia will constantly point to Kyiv, which refuses to negotiate.

    If it might seem that even a monkey, after a couple of burns, will understand that it’s not worth touching the coals, then the Kyiv regime demonstrates an exception here - the refusal to negotiate is now associated with holding referenda, the trial of the Azov people and what else. God himself ordered Russia to start the trial on the Azov as soon as possible, so that another red line of Zelensky would be passed. For some reason, he thinks that Russia really needs negotiations.
