[ Editor’s Note: Zelensky lost a big one today in his attempt to play master of the world by manipulating Europe into backing isolating Russia, and not giving a crap to the negative energy and inflation effects on the EU.
The drowning Zelensky hardly has any concern over impact on the EU. If sanctioning Russian gas helps him and screws Europe, its still pop the Champagne corks for Zel the dancing boy.
Little noticed has been Putin’s continuing the flow of Russian gas into and through Ukraine into a pipeline going through countries that are now helping a massive armaments supply brought forward to the Ukraine border to support the Ukie Nazis responsible for the Maidan coup atrocities and those that are happening now.
Putin let that past coup event slide because the new pending concern, not having Ukraine is NATO to his key priority, a no brainer.
When the shooting finally stops in Ukraine and if sensible people are running the new government, it will be time to dig into Zelensky’s shorts starting with his $35 million mansion near Trump in Florida, and his billion dollar bank account that not even Trump has.
If somehow we can kill off the Right Sector and Azoz batalions by the time this is done Ukraine and Europe will be a safer place. These guys are killing children in the exit corridors like they would rabid dogs, and Zelenski is their leader… Jim W. Dean ]
