Russia will Seize Mariupol Ukraine as Zelensky Fails the People.
It is becoming clear that Russia will seize the city of Mariupol in Ukraine. This is a major victory for Russian President Vladimir Putin who desired the small city for strategic reasons. Ukraine President Zelensky has utterly failed the people of Mariupol, he ignored the threats from Russia before they entered Ukraine. Putin issued a message to the Ukrainian people days before the invasion, he asked them to please lay down arms and no one would get hurt, yet Zelensky would not budge.
According to residents of Mariupol there was no preparation for an invasion despite Russian troops right outside the city. Canadian Broadcast visited the city days before the Russians entered and were shocked to find a city at peace with absolutely no urgency or preparedness for war. Over 60% of the city decided to remain in their homes, but what was most shocking is that most residents did not believe Russia would enter the city, or that if they did it would not be a full invasion. Local officials in Mariupol made no preparations at all for an attack by Russians, the thought of bombs falling seemed ridiculous to those who remained. But one resident admitted to Canadian broadcast news that the Russian invasion was going to be bad, he was shocked Mariupol local officials did not take an invasion talk seriously. He said a few guns were handed out to residents.
Bombed beyond recognition
Today Mariupol is destroyed, there is nothing but bombed out buildings, smoke rising and death. There are still 160,000 people stuck in the city, the mayor admitted today that Russia is in control of the city.
"Not everything is in our power," said Vadym Boichenko, the mayor of Mariupol, in a live television interview on Monday. "Unfortunately, we are in the hands of the occupiers today."
Zelensky is at fault
Zelensky is not a military genius, he is a former TV star who is now trying to fend off one of the strongest militaries on earth. Russia did not use its full force in Ukraine, they used their oldest tanks and youngest officers, they wanted Ukraine to surrender to Russian demands, but Zelensky was bullheaded. Believing America and Europe had his back, he sacrificed his own people to Russian missiles. To make matters worse Zelensky did not allow men who wanted to flee the country to flee.
Scenes from the train station in Ukraine showed women and children crying as they kissed fathers, sons, and uncles who were not allowed to leave, men who wanted to leave were forced to stay. Zelensky is responsible for the complete destruction of Mariupol and for the loss of life.
Zelensky is caught up in the American media spotlight, war is his reality TV show, he is convinced he is a war hero, because the United States is selling him as the new Rambo.
Putin is experienced, mature, brilliant, and calculating, he did not enter Ukraine to lose. Zelensky is inexperienced, he is the stubborn child who won’t surrender because his rich uncle America has told him he is a star. Zelensky talks tough then pleads with American and NATO to give him weapons and planes, all while his country is being destroyed. Thankfully 4 million Ukrainians have fled Ukraine Mariupol was not so luck, it is bombed beyond repair. 100,000 are trapped in the city yet Zelensky is still asking for more American weapons and money. Zelensky’s ego has cost more lives than Russian missiles.
