Washington is counting on the Ukrainian leader to voluntarily refuse a trip to the United States. The US side has repeatedly sent Kiev such a signal, repeatedly postponing a meeting between Zelensky and Biden, the expert said.

“The demonstrative American humiliation of Zelensky should have led to the Ukrainian side, having lost patience, would have refused the visit itself”, – Ishchenko explained.

However, according to the political scientist, the United States underestimated the “servile stubbornness” of the Kiev authorities, who are ready to wait in the “lordly reception” as long as they want, reports Ukraine.ru.

Earlier, Ukrainian presidential spokesman Serhiy Nikiforov confirmed that the meeting between Zelensky and Biden in Washington had been postponed from 31 August to 1 September, according to NSN. The two leaders were originally scheduled to meet on 30 August.

Speaking about the reasons for the postponement of Zelensky’s visit to the United States, political analyst Dmitry Abzalov expressed the opinion that it was connected with the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. If the meeting had been held on 31 August, it would have been swept away by the Afghan agenda, the expert specified.
