Zelensky is doing his best to remain an important part of the anti-Russia project. He proposed to the Rada [the Ukrainian parliament], which is controlled by the pro-presidential majority, to extend martial law and mobilization until November 21. That means new foreign military supplies and new foreign loans.
Zelensky spends almost two-thirds of the state’s income on the army, and only 40 percent is returned in the form of taxes. Of the nine billion promised by the European Union, Kyiv has received only a billion.
In the near future, the number of crimes in the field of arms trafficking, murders, car thefts, and thefts will increase, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine predicted.
Ukraine is a “black hole” in the view of Steve Cortes, a columnist for one of the leading U.S. political weeklies, Newsweek.
The segment quotes a Newsweek column saying, “Volodymyr Zelensky increasingly reveals his true nature. For months, the Ukrainian president has enjoyed nonstop adulation from the American press and audiences with celebrity glitterati. But now, the reality of his rule in Ukraine is becoming undeniable, even to his most ardent enablers in America. So, American taxpayers borrow tens of billions of dollars their country does not have, to send fortunes to the unaccountable leader of a corrupt country, all to escalate a war in which America has no vital national interest.”
