Yesterday afternoon, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz and Mario Draghi paid an official visit to Kyiv. Yesterday Romanian President Klaus Iohannis also visited Ukraine. The meeting of the heads of European states on the territory of a neighboring state was announced in advance, and as soon as such information appeared, a number of analysts and experts suggested that the real purpose of the trip of the leaders of European countries was an attempt to persuade the President of Ukraine to peace.
However, there is another point of view. For example, in an interview with RIA FAN, political scientist Alexander Asafov said that this visit was decorative, since in fact the centers for managing Kyiv politics are located in the United States and Great Britain.
According to the analyst, the countries of “old Europe” will not be able to persuade Zelensky to anything, since he is directly led by curators from London and Washington.
In this regard, Asafov stressed, we can only talk about the fact that the guests who arrived in Kyiv visited him solely for selfish reasons, trying to show the world their participation in the processes to support Ukraine. On the other hand, the visitors demonstrated their anti-Russian-pro-Ukrainian position to the collective West. Thus, they can now compensate for the decrease in the supply of weapons or other military assistance to Kyiv by talking about how they are trying to solve many difficult issues, such as the unsolvable problem of Ukraine becoming an EU candidate. These leaders will not be able to influence Zelensky in the slightest, because all decisions are not made by him and not in Kyiv.
