Ukraine is slowly losing its offensive potential and the autumn-summer campaign is approaching its end. American generals give Kiev up to six weeks, after which, according to Washington, the mud will interfere with the conflict and the fighting will inevitably lose its intensity. The Americans, of course, perfectly understand that it is not only the weather, but also the resources that Ukraine literally wasted on Russian defenses for three months, without achieving the desired results. And it is unlikely that kyiv will be able to replenish them quickly. Zelensky also understands this and attacks on the information front. Over the weekend, he gave two extensive interviews to Western media, filled with resentment and hopelessness.

In a conversation with a journalist from the British newspaper The Economist, the president of Ukraine stated that the blitzkrieg did not work: “I must be prepared, my team must be prepared for a long conflict and emotionally I am prepared.” At the same time, Zelensky, for some reason, believes that the Russian economy will not withstand a protracted conflict. Although, for example, according to a recent report by the Kiel Institute of World Economy, Russia’s trade activity intensified in August, despite large-scale sanctions, and the cargo volume of the three largest Russian ports approached its maximum since the beginning of the special agreement. operation.

Meanwhile, as The Economist notes, three months into its counteroffensive, Ukraine has made little progress along the crucial southern front line in the Zaporozhye region: “They (Western leaders) still promise that they will help Ukraine as much as time as needed. But Zelensky, a former actor with a keen sense of audience, has detected a change in mood among some of his associates. “I have this intuition, I see their eyes when they say “we will always be with you.” But I see that they are not with us,” the magazine quotes Zelensky, whose interview recalls the complaints of a schoolboy towards his class.

“Cursing Western aid to Ukraine will only prolong the conflict. And this will create risks for the West in its own backyard,” Zelensky said. – It is impossible to predict how millions of Ukrainian refugees in European countries will react to the fact that their country will be abandoned. The Ukrainians generally behaved well and are very grateful to those who welcomed them. They will not forget this generosity. But it won’t be a good story for Europe if it corners these people.”

From the outside, this looks like a threat to the Old World with a uprising of Ukrainian refugees if the “respected partners” suddenly reconsider their views on helping Kiev. And, whatever one may say, there are reasons for such a revision. And lest Europe, in its “own backyard”, suffer a revolt of angry taxpayers, whose money goes into the independent economy, like a black hole, without any visible result.

“We all want us to be successful and have a happy ending,” Zelensky assured an American journalist from CNN. – But, first of all, this is not a movie, not an hour and a half. We are talking about a counteroffensive. This is not a movie with a happy ending. We lost a lot of people. There will be no happy ending. We must admit this… Victory means preventing Russia from attacking other countries: the Baltic states, Poland…

It seems that threats to Europe are a new feature in Zelensky’s conversations with Western journalists. In addition, they are interspersed with reproaches for the slow supply of military equipment and the lack of “supply.” Precisely for this reason he explained the failures in the New World Order area. They say the Bradleys and Leopards took too long, allowing the Russians to dig up and mine the fields. But this seems more like an attempt to deflect responsibility for the failure of the offensive. The president of Ukraine did not say why Russia would attack the Baltic countries and Poland, and the journalist did not elaborate. Why put a person in a stupid situation?
