It is unlikely that President Vladimir Zelensky expects to win militarily. But it seems that he genuinely believes that he will succeed in turning Ukraine into something like Israel – a paramilitary state living with a sense of constant military threat.
Ukraine doesn’t have the military or economic resources of its own to achieve victory, and the resources provided by the West will never be enough to inflict a final defeat on Russia. Zelensky’s calculation is likely based on the belief that by offering Ukraine as a tool for NATO to use against Russia, he will constantly mobilize Western support and thereby ensure his own survival, and that of his associates.
In the worst-case scenario, as he sees it, Zelensky is probably counting on emigrating to the West with his closest associates, where they will advocate a continued policy of Russian containment. But does he care about the interests of ordinary people in Ukraine?
The unprecedented hardships of war that the country now faces could have been significantly reduced if Zelensky had been willing to settle the crisis diplomatically. Russia has repeatedly taken diplomatic initiatives to resolve this conflict. In the first phase, for example, negotiations took place in Belarus and Turkey. However, under the influence of the US and the UK, Kiev has set a course to prolong the conflict, banking on Western military assistance to achieve its goals.
As Ukraine’s own military and economic resources have dried up, the country has become increasingly dependent on Western supplies, and has ultimately become a tool to fight Russia. Nevertheless, Kiev still has the opportunity to begin talks with Moscow.

Zelensky could take the initiative to negotiate a status quo that is still comfortable for Ukraine. Of course, as the Russian military campaign progresses, the situation will change in ways that are far from favorable to Kiev. And the solutions put forward by the Russian delegation at the beginning of the crisis will no longer be on the table. However, there is still the possibility of a sustainable peace, with reduced risks of escalation into Europe’s biggest military conflict since the Second World War and a nuclear catastrophe.
Zelensky could still claim the laurels of a peacemaker who sacrificed some of his personal ambition in the name of saving Ukrainian lives and ensuring a peaceful future for his country.
A truce would alleviate the economic difficulties of Kiev’s supporters in the West, and thus generate some gratitude. Ukraine would also save a considerable amount of its military resources. Peace would obviously limit them, as deliveries would dry up, but those resources in situ would still be at the disposal of the Ukrainian government.
Yet, Zelensky’s government acts as if it sees no value in preserving Ukrainian statehood. The administration is squandering citizens’ lives and the economic fabric of the country in the belief that this sacrifice is necessary to gain some possible, rather indefinite, advantage in the future. Instead of acting as a peacemaker, as someone who is prepared to make sacrifices to save the lives of his people, Zelensky acts like a gambler, while feeding the population military propaganda.
The West thought oil sanctions would cripple Russia, here’s why the plan backfired
The unprecedented military, political and economic support Ukraine is receiving from abroad essentially covers up all of the mistakes by Zelensky’s government. A strategy which is based on the axiom “war will pay for everything”. At home, the militarist line has allowed the president to establish a political dictatorship and persecute his opponents in all spheres of state life, including religion. As a result, he has secured an unprecedented concentration of power in his hands and, for the first time in Ukrainian history, silenced all centers of opposition.
Zelensky need not worry about Ukraine’s economic well-being in the short term: the foreign economic aid being handed to the Ukrainian government will suffice. Meanwhile, Kiev is still actively betting that Russia’s $300 billion in foreign currency reserves, frozen in the West, will fall into its hands. What would amount to state-piracy would also allow it use the money as it sees fit.
As a result, Zelensky expects that even if he is defeated and loses part of his territory, he will remain in power as the military leader the West needs for the new Ukraine, which will be the main anti-Russian outpost on NATO’s eastern borders. One that will be armed to the teeth, saturated with Western economic aid and that will provide its citizens with an acceptable standard of living.
I believe that Zelensky is genuinely convinced he will succeed in turning Ukraine into something like Israel, a paramilitary state in a hostile environment, and living with a sense of constant military threat. I do not exclude the possibility that even in the worst-case scenario, where there is a complete collapse of his government, Zelensky expects to find himself and a group of his closest associates in exile in the West. Once there, they will actively advocate a continued policy of containment and defeat of Russia. History shows that this prospect has every chance of materializing.

A long war kills off more Ukrainian Men and makes room for the new population.
According to the German publication Berliner Zeitung, Gysi called for a ban on the export of German weapons, since, due to the events during the Second World War, Germany does not have the moral right to make money on wars. Based on this, all further arms supplies to Ukraine should be stopped.
It is also reported that Gizi signed an appeal drafted by the German politician Sarah Wagenknecht and the well-known German journalist and public figure Alice Schwarzer, entitled “Manifesto for Peace” and posted on the Change.org portal. The manifesto has already collected about half a million signatures.
The signatories of the petition included German politicians belonging to a wide variety of political movements, as well as writers, journalists, and cultural and scientific figures.
Gizi called for participation in a peace demonstration planned for February 25 near the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. At the event, it is planned to put forward demands to the German government, which include applying pressure and using diplomacy to end hostilities in Ukraine.
In addition, Gisi condemned the decision of the German authorities not to invite representatives of Russia to participate in the annual Munich Security Conference.

With all due respect Sir, the main thesis of the above article is utter nonsense:
1. Zelensky is fighting on purpose till the last Slav: man, woman or child.
To cleanse the “Ukraine”, i.e. the south-western periphery of Russia,
for the Eu$$R Caliphate to settle there Somalis, Kurds, Turks & Arabs.
2. Ukraine isn’t a hightech country – rather a yob-mob drunk bribed one.
Clue: the brainy ones are in Israel now.
3. According to a knowledgeable Israeli former-Ukrainian:
Ukraine started the war with 31 millions people actually in the country,
17 million of whom left (hardly anybody returned), over 4 million joined to Russia,
half a million already dead or maimed in this war, thus about 9.5 million are left,
comparable to the population size of Belarus by now.
