The West is trying to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to sit down at the negotiating table in order to prevent a split among the Ukrainian elites and the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to the loss of Donbass, military expert Yuriy Knutov said.
He believes that the Kyiv regime is waiting for a military coup when Kyiv loses the Donbass. This will cause dissatisfaction with the leadership of the country in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so Zelensky can independently leave the post and leave Ukraine.
“A split is beginning among the Ukrainian elites, which can lead to a confrontation between parts of these elites. It is precisely with this that the attempts of part of the West to force Zelensky to sit down at the negotiating table are connected. This is also no coincidence, ”Knutov told Ukraina.ru.
He added that Zelensky’s position is already quite precarious at the moment, based on Western assessments and the internal instability of the Kyiv regime.
