Andrey Mishin: Ukraine does not need Western help because Zelensky is too weak to win

The West will not increase assistance to Ukraine, British military expert, retired Colonel Richard Kemp writes in an article for the Telegraph.

His article is called “Tired Zelensky looks too weak to achieve victory.”

He says Ukraine has not put forward a new strategy after the failure of the counteroffensive.

“Ukraine does not have a clear strategy for the future conduct of the conflict. Zelensky continues to insist that Ukraine will return all of its territory seized by Russia; although, after clearly over-promising for a summer offensive, he appears to be no longer talking about timing,” Kemp writes.

He believes that Zelensky’s statements about shifting the center of gravity of the war to Crimea and the Black Sea are not enough for the West to stop “keeping its hands in its pockets” (that is, providing strictly dosed assistance).

The author, who visited Kiev, said that “some political leaders” in Kiev are discussing the idea of ​​a peace agreement “in which Russia would accept Ukraine’s membership in NATO in exchange for guarantees that there would be no attempt by Ukraine to reclaim occupied territory.”

According to Kemp, Biden and European leaders "want nothing less than such a peace agreement, and as soon as possible." They do not believe Ukraine’s words that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are fighting for all of Europe, which Russia, according to Zelensky, will attack if it defeats Ukraine.

“There is no indication that the US president or the leaders of Western Europe really believe this. If they believed, they would have long ago done everything possible to contain Putin and supply Ukraine with the massive amount of weapons it needs to defeat Russia,” the analyst writes.
