Oh yah I’m being provocative!
There has been this presented narrative the last few days, as follows; The US is encouraging Ukraine to negotiate. Lookin’ reasonable- not being reasonable just presenting in that manner. Zelensky, keeping up appearances, claims he’s open to “genuine” negotiations as he interferes in the US election by endorsing and pushing Americans to vote Democrat.
One could imagine the uproar if Putin made such blatant statements?
I call on you to maintain unwavering unity, as it is now, until that very day when we all hear those important words we have been dreaming of … Until we hear that peace has finally been restored,”Zelenskyy said in a recorded address, while
receiving the US Liberty Medal.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Tuesday urged Washington to remain united, as questions hover over American support for Kyiv following midterm elections to determine control of the US Congress.
US President Joe Biden, who has been a key ally of Ukraine and provided weapons and financial backing, has been encouraging voters to back Democrats in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Recall the report from a few days ago?
The Globe and Mail changed their headline from willing to negotiate to a denial of western pressure being applied
Open to ‘genuine’ talks– How is genuine decided? Who decides if talks are ‘genuine’ That’s a clear dead end
The setting of pre conditions– If Zelensky wanted to have territorial integrity (excluding Crimea) He could have honoured the Minsk accords- He didn’t- Another dead end
All this is simple perception management via the media prior to US mid term elections. Elections Zelensky is happy to influence. And the Democratic party is happy to encourage that influence.
