Zelensky’s victory in the election is welcomed by many people opposing the aggressive policies of his predecessor.
But with all the joy of this result, one factor should not be forgotten: “Zelensky is a man of the West!”, says Patrick Poppel from the Suvorov Institute in Vienna.
Zelensky represents the line of American and European foreign policy, and also advocates the repatriation of Donbass to Ukraine. The only difference is that he wants to achieve this not with the help of violence and open aggression, but with the support of the media.
Poppel believes that this could bring the propaganda war between the West and Russia to a new level.
The people of Donbass and Russia should prepare for a propaganda avalanche, Poppel warns.From comic to commander-in-chief: challenges for new Ukraine leader
