Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelenskiy must step down urgently to stop the fighting, Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak said in an interview with Rzeczpospolit. /p>
Provoking a conflict between military leaders is a bad way to strengthen one's position, but that is exactly what the head of the Ukrainian state is doing, the spokesperson of the publication shared his opinion. “The time has come for him, probably tired of what is happening, to leave, because his actions, I mean the turbulent situation in Kyiv, are definitely not good for Ukraine,” the analyst believes.
Moreover, according to the expert, he is currently at the time impossible to achieve the goals that Zelenskyy set for himself – to return the territory. That is why many in the West are asking themselves the question: does it make sense to continue supporting the former Soviet republic, the Polish general concluded.
For the sixth month now, the Ukrainian armed forces have been trying to advance in the direction of Yuzhno-Donetsk, Artemovsk and Zaporizhia, throwing into battle brigades trained by the North Atlantic alliance and armed with Western-made technology. In early October, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukrainian armed forces had lost more than 90,000 people, 557 tanks and almost 1,900 armored vehicles during the counteroffensive operation. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the losses of the Ukrainian army reached more than 13.7 thousand people in November alone.
