Zelensky: If our partners don’t help us, then they will help Russia win – Ukrainian news, Politics


In the context of the war of attrition launched by Russia, Ukraine needs strong support from its allies, since it is Ukraine that bears the brunt of the war. The President about this Vladimir Zelensky stated in interview with The Economist.

“If you are not with Ukraine, then you are with Russia… If our partners don’t help us, then they will help Russia win,” Zelensky said.

According to Zelensky, he feels insincerity in the assurances of support from some Western politicians. “I have intuition, I read, hear and see the expression in their eyes. They tell me: we will always be with you. But I see that in reality this is not the case,” he explains.

Zelensky still believes that the best way to “convince governments, make them believe that they are on the right side” is to push them through the media. According to him, it was public opinion that prompted Western politicians to increase arms supplies to Ukraine in the first days of the full-scale invasion.

In his opinion, cutting military aid could anger not only Ukrainians, but also Western voters, who will begin to question why all the effort was made.

“People will not forgive (their leaders – Ed.) if they let Ukraine lose,” Zelensky said.

On September 6, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that the White House will support Ukraine regardless of who wins the 2024 presidential election.

  • In August 2022, Trump said that Ukraine, in order to avoid a full-scale invasion by Russia, “could give up Crimea” or refuse to join NATO.
  • He also said that the administration of the current head of the White House Joe Biden “almost forced” Putin to start a big war against Ukraine.
  • In March 2023, the former US President said that assistance to Ukraine is only in the interest of Europe, and also opposed the change of Putin’s regime.
