The leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan, speaking on the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel, described the possible scenarios for Ukraine after Vladimir Zelensky leaves the presidency.
According to Kurginyan, the Ukrainian politicians have three options: to fight and shed blood, to really reconcile and make concessions, or to state that Ukraine does not need Donbass and let it go.
Sergey Kurginyan stressed that they cannot keep things the way they are now with Zelensky, “I want to stress: Zelensky cannot be repeated. There can be no Zelensky 2.0. It is impossible. The dream about returning everything without any effort and paying no cost will end with Zelensky.”
The dream about returning Crimea and Donbass, according to Kurginyan, “will have no second, third, fourth version; it will end with Zelensky. Since it will end like this, then a number of forces will appear, which will fight for different scenarios for Ukraine, unless one of them quickly wins, and this of course will be the party of war, led by Poroshenko or someone else.”
“What will come after Zelensky? What kind of a Nazi has to come in order to move what is left of the Ukrainian army and all the rest against Donetsk and Lugansk?” Kurginyan inquired. And he noted that “it will not be Poroshenko. Poroshenko is compromised very much. But who is that person who will step out and say ‘War till final victory!’?”
In the event that an offensive against Donetsk and Lugansk takes place, “they all will have to be defeated in order to sign new agreements on Ukraine’s ruins,” the leader of Essence of Time said. He noted that another scenario is possible, in which Ukraine will be unwilling to retake Donbass and will reject it. But the Ukrainian side cannot observe the Minsk agreements, Kurginyan believes.
The political scientist said, “What will be Ukraine’s fate at the next round? I am afraid it will be dramatic. Zelensky has killed all the moderate scenarios for Ukraine. He is a buffoon, a total nothing, an incompetent administrator. But he has had a huge negative impact. He has killed a whole field of meanings. He destroyed it. And now they will have to operate in the residual field of meanings.”
Vladimir Zelensky won the presidential elections in Ukraine by promising to return Crimea and Donbass without war and blood. He failed to establish the peace he promised, people are still dying in Donbass, and Ukrainian economy remains ruined.
