When its comes to psychological warfare, president Zelensky of Ukraine has no equal and he has been successful due full support from both western media and politicans who also interpret his words to suite their audience at home in support of Ukraine.
Psychological warfare works at the beginning but when facing a bigger and a greater power like Russia, reality will always come very fast and that’s what is happening here as Zelensky see no single chance of winning the war.
He recently gave ultimatum to Russian soldiers to surrender and save their lives or be killed which is kind of interesting. e is trying to show that Ukraine military is winning the war when actually the opposite is happening on the ground as more regions, cities, towns and villages are captured after Ukraine military flee.
Ukraine president Zelensky on Tuesday admitted that Ukraine is unlikely to join NATO which a western security alliance headed by US that Russian president Vladimir Putin has been demanding Ukarine to never join as he demanded legal security guarantee from the the west especially US.
While talking to UK’s joint expeditionary forces, Zelensky said Ukraine was still seeking NATO guarantee although he admitted that it was clear that Ukraine wasn’t a member of NATO.
“For years we apparently had open door policy but we already heard that we will not enter there and that’s the truth and must be acknowledged”, Zelensky said. This is where you ask yourself” what was the real intension of president in starting a war with Russia if he clearly understood that Ukarine will never be allowed to join NATO”.
This is what we wrote in an article at asia.forsige.com. titled” Zelensky is playing with the lives of his people and increasing their suffering by prolonging the war”. The article asks whether president Zelensky will be able to explain himself to the people of Ukraine the reasons he went to war against Russia if after much pain, suffering, destruction and death, he concedes to the some demands that led to war.
Zelensky says Ukraine has strived to join NATO since the annexation of Crimea in 2014 but Moscow has fiercely fought against it and Ukraine never joining NATO is one of the demands Russia is seeking to end the war.
Both Russia and Ukraine negotiators are still discussing the terms of ceasefire to end the war as Russian forces surrounded city port of mauripal and the capital city Keiv. I think this is the last chance for Zelensky to make peace and save Keiv or else, the city will be bombed to the ground.
The longer president Zelensky pro-longed the war he knows he can’t win, the more he will cause pain, suffering to the people of Ukraine and the destruction he will leave behind. President Putin of Russia has no choice but to force a surrender or win the war as the consequences of losing are terrible for Russia as country.
The war which is in third week of fighting has displaced more than 3 million people and killed more 650 civilians and tens of thousands of fighters from both sides with selective destruction sofar which may change if the ranges on for long.
