Russia and Ukraine

I am not seeing any interest yet at DU about this, but for anyone else who is noticing it, we are not alone. An understory in the transcript and all of the recent engagement with Zelenskiy is a genuine change. Based on what I'd followed during the Mueller investigation, I'd assumed that Zelenskiy is a friend of the Russian Federation. But everything I read that he said did not conform to that.


Twitter has people analyzing it.


A good one: Michael MacKay

The so-called 'transcript' indicates that Volodymyr Zelenskyy isn't a 'Servant of the People' (as his party name says).

Zelenskyy is an eager participant in corrupt schemes pushed by Putin-Trump.

Coupled with his surrender-to-Russia moves lately, I think Zelenskyy is finished.

Basic question about Ukraine and Russian Federation: What does Putin think?

I did a good job of keeping up during the days of the Mueller investigation, but find myself stumped by a basic thing as I read the transcript this morning.

ZELENSKIY is talking about how much he wishes Germany and France would do a better job of enforcing sanctions against the Russian Federation.

TRUMP is talking about how very helpful the US has been to Ukraine.

However, one of the driving forces behind the Trump Tower meeting and so many other things has been Trump's desire NOT to enforce sanctions against RF. (For fascinating background on all of that, I cannot over-recommend Bill Browder, btw.)

So in addition to everything else that is going on within the U.S., it appears to me that DT is also trying to play both Ukraine and RT. With a quick review of the Google, I'm finding no indication that Putin and Zelenskiy are actually friends.

Thoughts?
