The reasons why Petro fucked up
More than half a decade passed since Ukrainians started the Maidan revolution to get rid of the corrupt pro-RuSSian scum in the government, leaving Ukraine partly occupied, devastated and costing 12k people their lives.
So why didn’t Ukraine ‘explode’ after the chains were broken, and why Petro Poroshenko was not re-elected?
First and foremost Ukrainians were never seeking full membership in the European Union, they wanted to be associated and benefit from their strategic location between RuSSia and Europe.
Secondly, since RuSSia’s brute invasions, Ukrainians desire to be a member of NATO to be safe from further RuSSian aggression.
Finally, Ukrainians wanted a higher standard of living and an end to the rampant corruption and protectionism.
Petro lost big because he did not meet the expectations of the Maidan heroes, period.
Now Ukraine is ruled by a clown who brought back the criminal syndicates and RuSSian mafia. Ukraine is at the crossroads. Either a strong pro-western coalition will take power again and get Ukraine back on track or Ukraine will become a failed state, a failed economy, a failed factor, a failed revolution.
