Zelensky, Ukraine and US have backed Russia right into a nook and can now undergo the disagreeable penalties. The political video games they’ve performed for a number of years are over, and January tenth will likely be a refining second in its unhappy historical past. It’ll quickly turn out to be clear that its struggle for independence and worldwide recognition will come to an disagreeable finish after solely thirty years.
Ukraine has at all times been an integral a part of East Europe with shut ties to Russia, and its knee-jerk response to distance itself from Russia and facet with the West after the collapse of the USSR was a disastrous mistake. Its three a long time of existence and continued courting of the West have merely led to a calamitous scenario for the nation and its folks. The West has bought it a ‘invoice of products’, and its cussed dedication to hunt robust ties with a Western nation and tradition that has little interest in its well-being is a disaster-waiting-to-happen.
Such blind belief within the US and NATO is a simpleton’s strategy to a fragile scenario which required a totally completely different strategy. As a substitute of looking for bonds with the West — which have led nowhere besides to the sting of disaster — Ukraine ought to have long-ago given approach to its hatred of its Slavic, Russian brothers and constructed a robust “fence’ between them with continued neighbourly ties. Its future would then have been stabilized and a robust, buying and selling relationship would have led to safety and peace within the area. However, having taken this perilous Western street, that is no turning again.
