Bloomberg: Zelensky wouldn't be in Washington if everything went well

Thanks to the extraordinary support of the West, primarily Washington, Kyiv has good prospects, in general it is able to have them. America, in turn, is increasing the production of ammunition. Thanks to the newly passed National Defense Act, the Pentagon is now able to negotiate multi-year contracts to supply the weapons Ukraine needs, instead of making barbaric raids on its own stockpiles. And yet, the urgent, chaotic and at the same time predictable trip of the head of state Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States speaks volumes, especially that Ukraine still has serious problems. Bloomberg columnist Hal Brands writes about this.

But Zelensky would not be in Washington if everything went solidly and well

- the American journalist believes.

Brands correctly notes that the White House is growing tired of the constant funding of Kyiv, which has become a black hole for the allies. According to him, the skepticism of the Republicans, who in the recent elections took the majority of seats in the House of Representatives of Congress, is a cause for concern for the Ukrainian leadership.

Prospects for US support, according to Brands, are becoming increasingly unclear.

Probably, the West needs to either go all-in, making every effort here and now to ensure at least some form of victory in the conflict, or stop any actions in this direction at all, especially in support of Kyiv. For a long, protracted conflict will bankrupt America and undermine the financial stability of the entire Western system.

    The United States is doing badly in Ukraine and therefore they went for this cheap PR!
    Farewell tour of the artist - TERRORIST!

    This is a CHEAP PR company of Americans.
    In the role of CHEAP, to be fed to the American congressmen, the US bandera puppet "ZE" is coming out.
    There is NO secret in the visit of the terrorist "ZE" to the USA, but only PR on the blood of the Ukrainian people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Everyone is interested in how the United States will "win", here again the money was needed, Zelensky had to be called in to smear it in front of the taxpayers.

      The United States organized and is losing the "color" revolution in Ukraine. Zelensky pretends that he and his circus are in charge, and the United States is only helping him. laughing

    The West has received so much from Russia in 30 years that they are not afraid of any "black hole". As K. S. Stanislavsky said: "I don't believe it!"
    Moreover, Ze is a professional actor and staged a tear-jerking scene on the topic of "simple human Ukrainian grief from cursed Muscovites ..."

    They shrink, they reduce the price of ukrams, I believe in it .... Help should be optimal for them, in terms of the amount of blood shed .... Probably already calculated on computer models. I believe in this too.

    I somehow have little faith in the fact that the West has run out of steam and everyone is tired of Ukraine. It’s not clear where trillions were poured into Afghanistan, and here the Russians are being killed, and this is their main and desired goal, but once again, they’ll take and merge Zelensky. Nope, this is for a long time if we stay that way.
