Russia or United States will control Kyiv Ukraine not Zelensky
The race to claim the capital city Kyiv has started
The battle is for the capital Kyiv, either the United States or Russia will seize it, the fastest wins the battle for Ukraine. At the start of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict the West assumed Russia’s President Vladimir Putin would advance his troops quickly to the capital city, but that apparently was not the case. The United States was so sure that Kyiv would fall, they offered Ukrainian President Zelensky a plane ticket out of the country, the rest is history.
The Russian attacks have been centered around the port city of Mariupol and in the East, it makes good military sense, Russia has cut of major supply routes into Ukraine, the strategy has worked despite resistance from the Ukrainians. NATO (North American Treaty Organization) watched as Kyiv was left standing by Russia and saw a golden opportunity to control the capital city, while leaving Zelensky as “President” in name only. It is clear that Russia is at war with NATO not Ukraine. The plan is very public, flood Ukraine with NATO weapons and financial aid, as long as NATO controls Kyiv they will keep fueling more war, this is the sad predicament of the civilians living in Ukraine. The battle is on for who can control Kyiv the fastest, NATO has made it quite obvious that they are going to flood the land with heavy military equipment. Zelensky is the unhinged puppet, doing emotional television interviews begging for American money, while the West controls the country. When the smoke clears, either Russia or the United States will control Kyiv, Ukraine.
Did Putin make a mistake not seizing Kyiv earlier?
Despite media portrayals of the Russian President having no respect for the rule of law, Putin is actually a statesman who is well versed in international law. At the start of the conflict NATO money and weapons had not yet poured into Ukraine, Putin was still appealing to the Ukrainians to lay down arms, Kyiv was still available for anyone who would seize it.
The West is no longer playing by the “international law” playbook, they have made it clear they are taking Kyiv. The days of Reagan and Gorbachev are gone, Ukraine is the wild, wild west, winner take all, including Kyiv.
The actions of NATO (Germany) sending heavy military equipment to Zelensky gives Russia every right under international law to seize all of Ukraine, Germany’s actions are a direct threat to the security of the Russian people who live on the border.
NATO has lost its collective mind over Ukraine. Germany had initially refused to send any offensive weapons to Ukraine and later balked at sending heavy equipment such as armored vehicles. Under pressure domestically and from allies, Chancellor Olaf Scholz's government agreed recently to let Ukraine purchase German armaments and support weapons swaps with allies who in turn are sending heavy gear to Ukraine. Germany has already sent about 2,500 anti-aircraft missiles, 900 bazookas, and millions of rounds of ammunition, hand grenades and mines to Ukraine. NATO Is at war with Russia, only a Russian controlled Kyiv will stop the madness.
If NATO “Unofficially” claims Kyiv with Zelensky sitting as President, Russia will have to live with the danger of an aggressive West at its door, it will ruin the balance of power in Eastern Europe. Putin did not make a mistake in not claiming Kyiv earlier, he was still playing by international law. Putin’s goal was to demilitarized Ukraine, the demilitarization of Ukraine has not happened, in fact, more weapons are in the region since Russia came into the land on February 24th. There can be no demilitarization with NATO flooding Kyiv with weapons and money. Either Russia or the United States will control Kyiv Ukraine, the greatest danger seems to be for the Russian people who are watching Eastern Europe joining up with an aggressive NATO.
