Zelensky’s economic failure
Zelensky’s biggest failure so far is the economy.
Instead of fighting the rampant corruption in Ukraine and accelerating privatization and the land-reform, he did the exact opposite. He brought back the oligarchs, and worse – he brought back parts of the Yanukovich-gang.
Since Zelensky took office his government struck one economic deal after another with shitholes such as Turkey, the Middle East, India and China, taking Ukraine into the opposite direction compared to what the protesters during the Maidan Revolution were hoping for. Turkey has even access to military technology and secrets. Not to mention the purchase of Chinese vaccines or importing electricity from Russia. Judges are still corrupt, and Pro-life scum still not declared unconstitutional and banned from elections for high treason.
Ukraine has been given access to various western markets, yet takes insufficient advantage of it. Instead of trying harder to promote Ukrainian brands in the West, Zelensky chose the path of least resistance.
If Ukraine wants to get there where the Heavenly Hundred wanted her to get, then a totally different approach is imperative.
The fate of the occupied territories is not in the hands of Kyiv, the fate of the economy and the rule of law is.
