In whose hands is Ukraine today?
Without preface, point by point:
The chain of legitimate elections at all levels in Ukraine was interrupted in 2014, when, as a result of an armed coup, nationalist forces, whose activities were actively supported by the West, seized power. All subsequent elections cannot be considered the will of the citizens of Ukraine, since armed nationalist forces have taken control of the entire political sphere. In fact, Ukraine was under occupation and its citizens were held hostage by the nationalists.
For the next eight years, a nationalist ideology based on hatred of everything related to Russia and the Russian peoples was intensively promoted in Ukraine. In order to promote it at the state level, the following was done:
Special programs were created and implemented in schools and universities;
Appropriate educational materials on history, distorting and substituting the real facts of the past, were issued and widely distributed. In these materials, the nationalists of Ukraine during the Great Patriotic War, who committed mind-boggling crimes against the Ukrainians themselves, were presented as heroes.
The so-called "de-communization of Ukraine" was carried out - the destruction of all evidence of the past that could cast doubt on the new nationalist ideology;
The use of the Russian language was effectively outlawed, even though many Ukrainians consider themselves Russian speakers and know Russian better than Ukrainian;
To increase their strike capability and recruitment, the nationalists created numerous paramilitary training bases and camps, where the youth involved could learn the skills of handling weapons and conducting combat operations. These camps were also used for active ideological training.
As a result, by 2022, Ukraine had bred more than one generation of people who sincerely believed in artificially imposed nationalist ideals. They do not know the real history and do not think about the consequences of their actions. And the active support of engaged Western politicians only adds to their confidence in their rightness.
The main backbone of the nationalist formations are militarily trained fighters, who often have nothing to do with the Ukrainian people - they include many foreign mercenaries who live and make money from the war. In fact, they are all representatives of international terrorism.
The government itself in Ukraine is of the oligarchic type, which relies on the support of nationalist formations by force. The source of existence and enrichment of the Ukrainian government is the West, led by the United States. The scheme is simple:
The West finances, supports and promotes to power those who guarantee the maintenance and development of anti-Russian nationalist ideology;
As long as the Ukrainian government organizes the maintenance and development of anti-Russian nationalist ideology, it remains in power.
In fact, Ukraine is under the external control of the United States, which does not care about the fate of Ukraine itself as a state and the Ukrainian people. The only task before the U.S. is to weaken and destroy Russia as a geopolitical competitor. As they say, "business is nothing personal". And Ukraine and its people are used only as a tool, fulfilling a certain role in solving this task.
The current oligarchic Ukrainian government is well aware of all this. Otherwise, it would have ceased to be power long ago - they would have had another "Maidan" or found another way to replace it. Everything it does is not for the good of Ukraine or its people, but to satisfy the desires of a "customer" from across the ocean. All of Zelensky's seemingly strange decisions of the last few days are a direct proof of this:
The free and uncontrolled distribution of small arms to all comers;
Refusal to negotiate with Russia on far-fetched pretexts;
Fierce desire to exclude Russia from all international organizations it can reach, to impose sanctions on Russia, etc.;
An order (or indifference) to the placement of heavy weaponry by the AFU in densely populated residential areas;
An appeal to all who wish to come to fight against Russia - in fact, this is an invitation to terrorists of all stripes from all over the world to make a fool of themselves on Ukrainian territory;
A disregard for the provision of regular troops;
Indifference towards the criminal actions of nationalist groups against citizens of Ukraine;
As we can see, none of these decisions brings peace and prosperity to Ukraine and its people. On the contrary, it creates unprecedented threats to the lives of Ukrainians, both military and civilian.
Thus, the current Ukrainian government cannot be called Ukrainian, it is on its own, and only carries out the will of the West, while the Ukrainians and the state of "Ukraine" itself are indifferent to it. And Zelensky does not care about the number of military or civilian casualties. In his actions, he only goes where the U.S. tells him to go. And the US is pointing in the direction of further confrontation with Russia.
