Ukraine’s Zelensky “confused,” “disappointed” by Biden not trying to block Russia pipeline

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says he learned through the press – not any direct heads-up – that President Biden had decided to stop trying to block a Russian pipeline that Ukraine sees as a dire national security threat.

Why would Ukrainian lives be in Biden’s or Putin’s hands when they are clearly in Zelensky’s? Or does he not consider the civilians even now under sporadic, indiscriminate or even purposeful Ukrainian fire in the Donbass to be legitimate Ukrainians? As if there were ever any doubts, they clearly do not.

If UA push ever again comes to RF shove, the right (such as it is) to invoke an R2P intervention will be held by Russia and no other. Simple as that.

When you play chess with the Russians its not about winning its how long you can stay on the board. Biden is personally invested in Ukraine and the Gamble that they could conduct their business without Russian involvement has led to the revelation that, in fact they need permission. As for Zelensky, its likely that Russia won’t entertain him either until he at least, implements the Minsk agreement in full and, begins meaningful negotiations with Donbass etc. it seems his options are, submit or get removed from the Board.

It’s so funny listening to western “analysts” on ukraine. And Mr. Mercouris still talks about a war with russia, which was always an absurd fantasy pushed by western “analysts”.

The Z clown now has to give interviews to western outlets because in Ukraine, nobody gives a flying you-know-what about him any more. Life is tough in Ukraine, who cares about a whining clown.

The Z crybaby has only one thing left to do. Luka and Vlad are waiting Russkyi Mir.

Don’t underestimate the zealousness of Z’s.

The ‘Z’ clown, in direct imitation of the ‘S’ clown and with UA’s ultra-right as the torch, is perfectly capable of igniting a war with Russia. The US and to a lesser extent, the EU have painted themselves into a corner and would have little choice but to engage, with all its disastrous consequences. Never underestimate the clumsiness of clowns in big shoes.

Even if Z’s zealousness were genuine (which I doubt), all of this tantrum screaming of late is just another confirmation that Z is a captive of neo-nazi zealots and deathly afraid of wandering from their script. His complaints of US backstabbing may be as much from its newfound reluctance on NS2 as its 7 year old reluctance to abandon its very useful ties to the neo-nazi zealots.

Zelensky is a terribly bad jewish clown-actor doing the bidding of the galician ukro-nazis who are in turn doing the bidding of “the west”. How low can you go “The west” always picks such low-lifes, because they are birds of a feather. In Ukraine he is ridiculed, his stupid language laws which tried to separate Ukrainians into “real” ukrainians and the rest were ignored just like his silly lockdown. When he starts speaking russian half of the time like when he pleaded for Vlad to meet him, at the same time passing the west’s “language law” to divide ukrainians, people… Read more »

It always amazes me to watch idiots continuing to listen to the US at their own expense. Americans make promises that they simply cannot keep in the long run. Since 2014, Ukraine was told the US would protect them from Russia as long as they do whatever Americans wanted…HUGE mistake as Americans never keeps their promises. By the way, how is Ukraine doing in taking back Crimea and eastern Ukraine so far? More promises from the west that will result in absolutely nothing. Now Ukraine will lose over $3 billion in transit fees hence continue to sink into nothingness. Congrats… Read more »

Why would anyone with any intelligence want anything to do with the US. All they’re interested in is bleeding a country dry. If that doesn’t work they start a war.

Biden’s biggest concerns are money pipelines, the ones leaving America and the ones arriving from abroad and into his pocket.

How is Ukraine going to restart economic an political links with Russia when the current Ukrainian Foreign Ministry persists in referring to Russia as “the aggressor state”?

Perfectly natural reaction. Ukraine wants the freedom to annihilate its internal opposition without further bother from ‘Russian aggression’.

Ukraine is in a mess, botched, indeed it is a tragedy. It was purposefully done before Zelensky’s time by US Foreign Minister Clinton and her employee Nuland culminating in 2014 in order to harm Russia and without any concern for Ukraine at all. He must not turn to them for assistance. He must repair the damage in relations with Russia as far as this is possible.

The real obstacle to a sea-change in Ukraine’s foreign policy are the Banderist neo-nazi bloc in Lviv. This filth has been calling the shots since 2014 but they don’t know jack shit about the realities of geopolitics and economics. They have just been played and are now dispensable. Ukraine is not a nation it is an unstable bloc between a Polish-Ukrainian catholic bloc in the West – courtesy of Stalin in 1945, and a Russian-speaking Orthodox bloc in the East – Courtesy of Lenin in 1922. It is not only the Donbass which looks east but also the Eastern side… Read more »

Big deal. Ukraine betrayed half of its citizens when it overthrew its democratically elected, OSCE approved president. Then started killing them when they protested. Seems it’s not just Ukraine’s economy that emulates certain African states.

Anyway, strange business that. Maybe Russia had turn agents in the OSCE that approved that election, like the US has in the OPCW and pretty much everywhere else.

STOP judging others by your own standards. This is why the West will never understand anyone from the East. Two totally different mental frequencies of thought. The Western ones always think the Eastern folks will behave and think like they do, then act surprised when they don’t.

L.O.L. I personally think this is the funniest thing I’ve read all week on the internet. If any nation, ever needed the PROOF, of the double standards the U.S. uses to use everyone, here with the Ukraine is another shinning example of that duplicity. But Sadly, many IDIOT nations choose to ignore the historical evidence staring them in the face, and believe, this time around it’ll be different. L.O.L. Clearly, in the Ukraine, it wasn’t, it was business as usual. Serve them right. I hope the other countries clamoring to join NATO take a good look at this, and see… Read more »

Supporting neo-Ustase, Supporting the KLA. Supporting Georgian wars on civilians, Supporting UPA/OUN et. al. Supporting al Nusra et al. Supporting Belarusians of like mind.

Before that, supporting every ultra right-wing murderous lot in Latin America.

The modus operandi is clear. The more inclined to violence and the less inclined to diplomacy and compromise (or God forbid…democracy), the better.
