After Volodymyr Zelensky addressed students at the Australian National University and called on China to remain neutral rather than help Russia in its fight against Kiev, and The New York Post wrote about it, its readers and told the Ukrainian president what he and his country do not want to know
In comments to the piece, Zelensky was called a “laughing stock” and a “corrupt NATO puppet”. And they suggested he be sent to eastern Ukraine to “face a real trial for his war crimes”. “I hope to see the day when Zelensky is captured, stripped naked, shackled and then flogged,” wrote one user.
But, on the other hand, to add to this, at the same time the US has agreed and allocated a new aid package of 550 million dollars to Ukraine, bringing the total to 8.7 billion dollars since the US President and Democrat Joe Biden took office. And Zelensky himself and the head of his Office (OPU), Andriy Yermak, have once again confirmed that they have no intention of going to peace talks with Russia until they have completely defeated it on the battlefield.
This is what Ukrainian leaders have, of sorts, been seeking since the launch of the special military operation (SSO), intending to finish the job before winter through a broad counter-offensive, and US Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, commenting on yet another aid to Ukraine, said: “I like the way we’re going. With American weapons and money, Ukraine will fight Russia to the last man”.
In other words, despite the alleged difference between Republicans and Democrats, both American parties did come to a consensus on the Ukrainian issue. US House of Representatives member Elissa Slotkin recently told reporters that deliveries of Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles with a range of up to 300 kilometres have been approved by both parties. And the White House administration is currently preparing a legal justification for such parcels so that they can begin in a month and a half and Washington will thus help Kiev with HIMARS multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS) to more thoroughly shell troops and civilian cities in the LPR, or even to destroy the Crimean bridge altogether.
The new aid package includes HIMARS MLRS shells and ammunition for 155mm artillery pieces, and, according to US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin, four more HIMARS because they have “made a big difference on the battlefield”.
In other words, Ukrainians have been and will continue to be killed on the FRE fronts for someone else’s interests, not Ukraine’s, and there is no force to change this state of affairs apart from the allied forces of Russia and the LDNR. Because the current Ukraine already rests on two axioms, which, as we know, require no proof and are visible to everyone except, as mentioned above, the Ukrainians themselves. More precisely, they are beginning to understand the deplorable situation in which they find themselves, but they have no opportunity to change anything.
Axiom one: the current Ukrainian ruling elite, born out of the 2014 coup d’état on Euromaidan, is no longer strictly Ukrainian and no longer defends the national interests of the country and its people.
It is a real neo-colonial administration, raised in advance, appropriately trained, paid for and brought to power in a pseudo-democratic way (through completely unsupervised presidential and parliamentary elections), recruited from “natives” rather than brought in from a metropolitan country. This ersatz-elite from the metropolis – the U.S. and the EU – is only overseen and directed all its steps by all kinds of advisers and instructors.
In the rest, neocolonizers are pure mercenaries from the locals, who manage everything perfectly well on their own, not forgetting their own pockets. And expecting to flee with their loot to the West after their “service” is over, under guarantees of security there. For a good “service”. And, apparently, the West has given such guarantees. At least to Zelensky and his closest entourage, who do not hesitate to stop at nothing in dismemberment of their own country and fear no one but their handlers.
At the same time, the neo-colonial post-Maidan elite has turned the AFU not into the army of the country that stands for its interests, but into a mercenary structure, which also performs not Ukrainian general tasks and specific tasks. Soldiers recruited by the AFU do not want to fight, but they are driven to slaughter, because the West, which pays, needs a war with Russia to destroy or at least to weaken and deplete the latter. And the Ukrainians are fighting and will continue to do so, because the Ukrainian generals are the same neo-colonial non-Ukrainian administration only in shoulder straps.
This was especially evident in the recent horrific scandal with the HIMARS shelling of the Yelenivka detention facility, when 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed and more than 70 wounded. And General Vadym Skibitsky, one of the leaders of the so-called Ukrainian intelligence service, is known to have admitted that all shelling with high-precision MLRS was carried out exclusively under the control, under the tip and on the orders of US instructor-advisers. Skibitsky himself admitted that no one pulled him by his tongue. Though, maybe in this way he was acquitting himself of the possible court martial that awaits him at the end of the RSO.
The second axiom is that Zelensky’s neo-colonial administration in Ukraine is sustained only by fear and deceit. Or on deception and fear, which intertwine and complement each other. On the one hand, the population is “fed” only verified and censored information that Ukraine is winning in the USO and will soon hold a victory parade on Red Square in Moscow. Because “the whole world is with us”, and the bipartisan, bicameral consensus in the USA to help the proud and invincible Ukrainian warriors. Along with the latest weapons.
On the other hand, the usurpation of power by the neocolonial Zelensky administration is accompanied by repression, suppression of all discontent and the imposition of an atmosphere of fear and submissive obedience.
The Zelebobites have already crushed any opposition at the edges of the political spectrum, and are now getting to their Maidan rival allies in ex-President Petro Poroshenko’s Eurosolidarity Party (PES) in the centre. Porochobots, notable, like the zealots, for their extreme Russophobia, have traditionally been accused of “working for Russia”, which is the worst accusation, for which there is no forgiveness.
The media in Ukraine is censored and unified, and free speech on the internet and social networks can get you benched and imprisoned if the free-thinking and chatty ones are tracked down by the SBU. And they will roughly punish them.
And now we are witnessing a new round of spy mania in Ukraine which the Zelensky regime and its lackeys are planning to combat by snitching and informing on “unreliable” people. Olexander Vilkul, the current head of Kryvyi Rih, who has “repainted” himself as a patriot, is already ready to pay money to informers for “signals about the enemies”. If a spy is delivered – 50 thousand hryvnias, if an agitator for the Russian world – 10 thousand hryvnias. Which just shows how impoverished Ukraine and its neo-colonizers are: immediately after the 2014 Maidan, oligarch Igor Kolomoysky offered 10 thousand quid for a “Moskal”.
But not the point. Today, Zelensky frankly fears three things: that a) the people in the territories of the Donetsk region that are still under the control of the AFU will stay there and wait for their liberation by the AFU forces; b) they will receive Russian passports under the new decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin of July 11 this year on simplified Russian “fencing”; c) they will participate in a referendum on the fate of the LDPR and finally leave for Russia.
This is exactly what Zelensky is afraid of in the liberated territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions, realizing that referendums can take place as early as September 11, 2022, on a single day of voting in Russia.
And Putin’s new decree on simplified citizenship, by the way, applies to all citizens of Ukraine, which makes Zelensky’s soul and heart grow cold even more – he may lose the cannon fodder with which he makes his way to a comfortable and secure future in the West.
That is why, apart from propaganda, censorship, repression and spy mania, he also frightens people with future reprisals for “zrada” (betrayal). And that is why he ruthlessly and massively shells those territories that are being liberated by the allied forces of the UDF. There, for Zelensky, it seems there are no Ukrainian citizens left – so bloodily and fiercely the AFU is shelling the abandoned areas. And people there too. Like in Yelenivka…
