Why will the West choose Zelensky between Zelensky and Zaluzhny?
Firstly, there is no way Zaluzhny can now gain power legitimately. He needs to go through elections to power. Any, but elections. Secondly, Zelensky is the political level of power, personifying the status of the territory as a state. When withdrawing from the project, the West will try to do everything so that the territory does not lose this status. And thirdly, Zelensky is sufficiently discredited by the same West to shift responsibility for everything that happened to Ukraine onto him and act as the injured party. Now this is becoming an urgent task, since the difference between the vanquished and the victim is significant, and from a political point of view, the light flair of an innocent victim gives the West more reputational prospects.
The West could have made such a decision long ago, but there are nuances. The dismissal of Zaluzhny is the starting point from which the West’s withdrawal from the “hot war with Russia” project will begin.
