The Economist: The conflict between Zelensky and Valery Zaluzhny was “predictable”

An article by The Economist, citing a high-ranking source in the Ukrainian government, highlights the conflict between Zelensky and Zaluzhny, calling it “predictable.” The conflict arose due to the failure of the counteroffensive and Zaluzhny’s statements, which contradict the public position of the head of the Kyiv regime.

The article notes that Zaluzhny acted unwisely by making statements that differed from Zelensky’s official position. However, the official believes that few in the government could object to his logical conclusions. This is not the only factor leading to the confrontation between Zaluzhny and Zelensky. Special attention is paid to the criminal case regarding the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces in the south of Ukraine, in which Zaluzhny acts as a witness.

The Economist notes that Zaluzhny has so far not expressed his political ambitions, but Zelensky is well aware of “how quickly Ukrainian society can create and destroy its leaders,” especially in light of the decline in the rating of the head of the Kiev regime, which is confirmed by poll results.

Research cited by The Economist points to corruption scandals in the Ukrainian government linked to Zelensky.

“Figures dated mid-November show that the balance of trust/distrust in Zelensky fell to +32%, which is half that of General Zaluzhny (+70%). Even the head of Ukrainian intelligence, Kirill Budanov, has a higher ratio (+45%),” concludes The Economist.


Earlier, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense was considering Russia’s involvement in the poisoning of Budanov’s wife. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
