Ukrainians are losing faith in Zelensky


The population of Ukraine is losing faith in President Vladimir Zelensky due to a failed counter-offensive, reports Corriere della Sera. The publication referred to data from the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, according to which Zelensky’s rating has seriously dropped from 98% at the beginning of the Russian Central Military District to the current 60%.


Growing pessimism depends on disappointment after expectations from the counter-offensive, the population is tired of the war
 
– says columnist Paolo Valentino.

In his opinion, internal political Zelensky’s problems are with the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny and the Mayor of Kyiv Vitaliy Klitschko.

Another columnist for the publication, Federico Fubini, pointed out the catastrophic shortage of ammunition among the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as the delay in funding from Europe and the United States, which does not contribute to a successful military campaign. The journalist clarified that on the day the Ukrainian Armed Forces “shoot from 6 to 8 thousand shells.”

Each of them has a production cost in the West of an average of 4 thousand euros. To continue the war, Ukraine needs almost 2 million shells and ammunition per year, the production of which costs almost 8 billion euros in the West
 
– Fubini calculated.

He added that the EU had delivered less than half of the promised million ammunition to Ukraine in the last nine months of 2023, while Moscow had increased its military production capacity.

Fubini also said that the military industry of the EU countries, although it has increased production volumes by 30%, is in no hurry to make large investments in new production facilities, since it doubts that they will be needed after the end of the Ukrainian conflict. In addition, European manufacturers continue to sell their weapons to other countries under previously concluded contracts, since no one has canceled the fines for their failures.

    Only clinical idiots could believe in this bloody ghoul clown, and if you consider that the outskirts are a country of victorious idiocy, then almost everyone is an idiot

      So, why then can’t the second army of the Universe disperse the crowd of idiots?

        There is no need to be funny, it was Ukraine that called the Armed Forces of Ukraine the second army in the world even before the promised counter-offensive, and everyone knows how epic Ukrainians can change their shoes in a jump.

        Only someone like him can consider an opponent an idiot. The main problem is that the Ukrainians squeak, but are trying to squeeze into NATO and the EU, without waiting in line. For Russia, this is vitally unacceptable, even a truce will lead to even greater casualties in the future. U's bet is on the younger generations, with a full nationalist filling.
        But it “cannot” disperse, because this involves great sacrifices and social tension. In addition, it is necessary to create equipment that is competitive with Western models.

          And there are 2 ways for this. The first is a short one, when we buy everything from China and finally become completely dependent on it. And the second is when we start with education, science, and the creation of new technologies. The question is: why the hell did we start all this with only remnants of the Soviet legacy behind us?

            The question is certainly interesting... Saddam Hussein collapsed in Kuwait (read US media articles and statements by officials before the invasion) - where did he end up? We don’t know the real agreements with the United States, but the beginning of the SVO was a carbon copy. Widely announced by the Amerzavi media, “Invasion of Russian hordes into independent Ukraine.” All actions of the RF Armed Forces, at the initial stage, could not be interpreted differently than the “Setup”. Nobody remembered about “providing security guarantees for Donbass”... They deceived us in such a way that the world did not read our actions except as an act of “Aggression”. Like the establishment of "democracies" by US troops. Maybe in decades, the truth will be revealed (if we live), but for now our actions resemble attempts to get out of the “Setup”.
            The main thing is that the scoundrels solve all their economic problems at the expense of Russia, and only GOD can save Russia from this trap.

    Where is Arseniy Yatsenyuk now? Who wanted to defend Ukraine before the “coolie in the forehead”? They say he got very rich and went overseas? And how did he get rich?

    For Ukraine this is not a problem. Rarely did anyone stay for two terms. Yanukovych alone wanted to become a tsar and replaced Kyiv with Rostov. Democracy rampant, damn it.

    60%..this is a very, very good result, frankly. Of course, there are five countries on the planet where the rating of the current head of state is consistently higher. But if you do not take into account these Outstanding/Great Leaders/Fathers of Nations/Peoples, 60 percent is a normal rating in the 5th year of government for any politician - any political scientist will say.

      Moreover, the incumbent always has the opportunity to increase his rating before the elections

    data from the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, according to which Zelensky’s rating has fallen seriously

    Zelensky's rating is not a sociological issue, it is a medical problem.
    The process of mental recovery in Ukraine is slow, very slow.

    If Zelensky isn't spanked in the spring, that means I won't have a birthday present.

    No one believed in the drug addict from the first day, since he promised to end the war in the LDPR. not a man, he continues to ruin Ukraine and the people. How I would really like to see him and the whole gang that shouted, kill Crimeans and Russians, hanged on the embankment, my and our Yalta. Hanged on the embankment, near the Lenin monument, overlooking the sea, although it was too great an honor for Ulyanov. Because he gave movement to a corrupt country like the fascist USRAINE.
