All Ukrainians and all political forces must unite around Zelensky so that he shows his strongest sides, says political commentator Leonid Shvets.
Since there are no presidential elections in Ukraine due to martial law, the political struggle has subsided, and therefore, whether someone likes it or not, we will go through this war with Russia together with Vladimir Zelensky. About this in an interview Focus said political commentator Leonid Shvets.
In his opinion, all Ukrainians should be interested in the president showing not his weaknesses, but his strengths of character. Even his harshest political opponents should be interested in this, the political observer believes.
“Now it is necessary for Ukraine to win,” emphasizes Leonid Shvets. “I am sure that Zelensky himself will end the war, but will not become the president of the restoration of Ukraine.”
According to the expert, this can be felt in Zelensky’s behavior, especially since he himself has spoken about this many times. And after the war, the time will come not only for development, but also for full-fledged political struggle.
“Vova will go somewhere to rest and everything will be democratic and calm,” says the political observer. “And already at this time Pyotr Alekseevich can “prance” in the political arena as much as he wants – this is normal. But during a war, political quarrels and struggle are inappropriate.” .
But it is interesting to pay attention to the US presidential elections next fall, because an unprecedented situation has developed there, the expert believes. The Colorado High Court has barred Donald Trump from running for office because of the storming of the Capitol. Of course, other states can use this precedent under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.
On the other hand, according to the expert, it is no longer possible to say anything good or bad about Trump and this will not in any way affect the mass electorate, because the Americans have long ago decided on their choice. If Trump and Biden remain in the presidential race, then it is unlikely that anything will change.
However, Leonid Shvets notes, in Ukraine there has long been an understanding that we must try to rely on ourselves as much as possible, because Western assistance may arrive at the wrong time or be delayed due to political battles, as in the United States. Of course, we cannot do without Western support, but we need to more actively use Western technologies to develop our own military-industrial complex.
Previously Focus reported that Germany provided a new aid package to Ukraine. The list of assistance included shells for tanks, artillery and grenade launchers, as well as armored vehicles.
