Zelensky explains the failed counteroffensive: ‘Leak, our plans were on the table in the Kremlin.  Only way to victory, depends on the allies’

While the Russian offensive the president is putting pressure on Ukrainian troops, especially in the South Volodymyr Zelensky tries to keep attention high on the Ukrainian cause. In his country’s moment of greatest difficulty since last summer, after a series of defeats on the field and col Western support which encounters its first important difficulties, above all due to theRepublican obstructionism Americans, the head of state returns to put pressure on the allies, recalling that Ukraine’s victory remains the only viable solution at the moment and, after the announcement of a new counteroffensive shortly, motivates the failure of the previous one with one “news leak” which he would have revealed to the Kremlin Kiev’s military plans.

NEWS LEAK – “The plans of our counteroffensive were on the table in the Kremlin before the counteroffensive began” due to “information leaks,” he said in the press conference for the two years after the invasion. However, the president predicted that 2024 will be a turning point year for the war and that this can benefit Ukraine only if the allies, and he also mentions Italy, make an effort to provide new armaments e Economic support to counter the Russian giant.

In the statements released during the press conference, the head of state specified that diplomatic effort must not fail, proposing a new formula which, in his vision, can lead to the opening of a peace table with Russia. However, this is not a real opening, if not a superficial one, given that it involves developing a peace plan decided by Ukrainians and allies to then submit to Russia, giving it the opportunity to accept it. Which is unlikely to happen. “We have arrived at the moment of the first Global peace summit. The first inaugural summit. I hope it takes place in the spring. We cannot lose the diplomatic initiative. It will take place in Swiss“, declared the head of state, adding that the document that will be prepared “will then be presented by the negotiators to the Russian side”. But this, he warned, “does not mean that Russia will accept it”.

However, if anyone saw in these words a first opening to dialogue with the other party, they will have to think again. And it is Zelensky himself who wants to set the record straight. Ukraine “has no alternative” to winning the war, he said, and when asked whether the time has come to negotiate with Vladimir Putin given Ukraine’s ammunition shortage, he replies: “Can you talk to a deaf person? Can you talk to a man who kills his opponents? We will propose a platform where Putin can accept that he lost this war and that it was a huge mistake and a tragedy for us and for the democratic world.”
