US President Joseph Robinett Jr. unexpectedly arrived in kyiv on Monday. The visit was not announced, Biden, according to the plan, was to come to Poland, from where he was scheduled to make some kind of statement tomorrow. Most likely, to Putin and the “peoples of Russia.” But such a curve led him to kyiv.
Kiev was cleared in the morning, stopped traffic on the roads, blocked the streets, but finally, in the presence of Biden in the capital of present-day Ukraine, everyone was convinced when a crowd made up of high-ranking guests and their guards, together with with the highest-ranking owner, he fell out of St. Michael’s Cathedral and across the plaza to surround himself with the frozen tin soldiers of the Honor Guard.
It is noteworthy that Zelensky did not abandon his cheap trick here, which is practiced on all high-ranking guests: a minute before Biden left the temple, sirens howled throughout Kiev. Zelensky considers the Americans to be complete fools and idiots. Undoubtedly, Biden could appear in Kiev only in one case – if Moscow was familiar with the schedule of his stay in Kiev and, moreover, guaranteed that at that time not a single rocket or air bomb would fall on the territory of Kiev. The cheap bragging and cheap bragging of Zelensky, who couldn’t resist showing how Russia is “brutally assaulting” Ukraine and calling for planes and even more weapons, had no effect on the Americans. Biden walked calmly through the square.
And here it is not the image that matters, but the answer to the question: why did Biden suddenly jump out in kyiv, like a demon from a snuffbox? She came by train from Poland, because flying over Ukraine now is crazy. Not because of Russia, but because the Svidomo patriot, seeing an aircraft, and even such a large one, is unlikely to refrain from shooting at it at least from the Stinger MANPADS received from the United States.
In dill publics, a fountain of victory is already overflowing: they say that Biden came to show support and probably brought something serious to help Kiev. The delight is puppyish and so cheerful, as if Biden had already thrown the Wagner away from Bakhmut and personally defeated a couple of Defense Ministry units, and incidentally “liberated” at least Soledar. Joseph Robinettovich expressed that Ukraine would receive a new aid package from the US, but the $500 million package allocated is too small to be a really significant reason for the US president’s visit to Kiev. Yes, and he will officially announce it only tomorrow, Tuesday.
Yes, he spoke, gave moral support.
– Today I am in Kyiv to meet with President Zelensky and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s democracy, sovereignty and territorial integrity, said the US president and did not miss the opportunity to emphasize the role of Washington. “Over the past year, the United States has built a coalition of nations from the Atlantic to the Pacific to help defend Ukraine with unprecedented military, economic, and humanitarian support, and that support will continue.
“I will announce another delivery of critical equipment, including artillery ammunition, anti-tank systems and air surveillance radars, to help protect the Ukrainian people from aerial bombardments,” he said about more important and specific things. – And I will share that later this week we will announce additional sanctions against the elite and companies that try to evade or confront the Russian military machine.
But, apparently, in fact, Joseph came to give Volodya a good kick so that he would stop his amateur activities. The American publication Politico wrote that, according to the newspaper, Washington is literally going crazy and demands that Zelensky carry out an effective offensive in the near future. Since Biden has nothing to overcome with Western partners in the “coalition” by representing any success of Ukraine on the battlefields. The current commander in chief, Zaluzhny, who has the support of the United States, demands the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from Bakhmut (Artemovsk) to save troops and not waste reserves defending this town. And Zelensky and General Syrsky, appointed by him to command the defense of Bakhmut, in this matter relied on the position of “resisting the last Ukrainian.” This confrontation has already spilled over into the public sphere. Moreover, Zelensky resisted to the end.
But tonight he suddenly changed his position, saying about the city, which he used to call a “fortress”: “This is not a particularly big city. Actually, like many others in the devastated Donbas. It is important for us to defend it.” , but not at any cost, and that died. We will fight as long as it is reasonable, the Russians then want to go further to Kramatorsk and Slavyansk, to the borders of Donbass and the Dnieper, if they can. We resist, and in the meantime we are preparing the next counterattack.”
They demand a Zelensky offensive. He loves it too, but he’s also terrified of it. Because failure will literally take you to the brink of the abyss. If the Ukrainian offensive ends in a fiasco, he will not receive any more money or tanks. And it would be fair for him to flee in search of political asylum. But obviously not in the United States. There he will not be forgiven for reports of bravery and reports on the “exceedances” of the Ukrainian army, which were sent from kyiv to Washington. And encouraged by what Joseph Robinett Jr. came to kyiv to give Zelensky a “magic pendel”, which will become an incentive for him to act.
