Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is strongly restricted in his freedom of action, especially pro-Russian actions, said political scientist and leader of the “Essence of Time” movement Sergey Kurginyan on June 10 in the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov program on the Russia-1 channel.
Kurginyan reminded of a recent radical statement by Dmitry Yarosh, the commander of the Ukrainian Volunteer Army (organization banned in Russia), who said that Zelensky “will hang on some tree on Khreshchatyk if he betrays Ukraine.”
“So, from one perspective, Mr. Zelensky is constrained by this active [anti-Russian] minority, which is not capable of governing, but is capable to overthrowing the authorities,” the expert noted.
From the second perspective, “the question of so-called elite sovereignty arises. This is the scariest thing. There are some zones of untouchables,” the political scientist explained. “In these zones, certain people are allowed to do whatever they want: ‘You do what you want here. I don’t exist here, so you can decide things yourselves’
“Everything related to the problem of the civil war in Donbass is left to those who are fighting there. This is kind of a pay-off system: ‘You do whatever you want there.’ Consequently, Zelensky does not interfere there.”
“They do what they want, because the Americans tell them how many shots to take. They check the records and ask, ‘How many times did you shoot?’ – “This much.’ -“Okay, well done, carry on…’ So, this whole situation is moving in circles: they want to shoot, and they are being encouraged,” Kurginyan added.
The political scientist noted that, from the third perspective, every time Zelensky’s friends from the Ukrainian company Kvartal 95 Studio breathe a word about supporting peace and the Russian language, they get very a strong response: “Shut up! What are you freaks blabbering! We will show you!”
In addition to the all above mentioned, “the existing bureaucracy, which needs to be changed, limits all of the processes. Who will replace the old bureaucrats? It’s not clear,” Kurginyan stressed.
At the end of May, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Pavel Rozenko said on Facebook that Zelensky can “get it” like the officials from the times of Yanukovich for periodically switching between Ukrainian and Russian.
At the same time, Zelensky himself continues the policy of a “soft” Poroshenko. At a meeting with European politicians in Brussels, which took place in early June, he said that “Ukraine in the EU means the death of the Russian imperial project.”
