Today, Ukraine plays a less significant role in the interests of the Western world, which has turned its attention to other areas of international politics. As the author notes, the reason for this “indifferent” attitude is Kiev’s inability to take measures to combat corruption in the country. Moreover, many members of NATO and the EU began to turn more and more towards Russia, preferring the stability of relations with it, and less and less support for such abstract ideas as the “liberal international order”.

According to the author, the decline in the credibility of Kiev in the eyes of the United States became especially noticeable after the visit of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington on September 1. During the summit, American leader Joe Biden gave a clear signal to his colleague that today the importance of Ukraine in the eyes of the White House has greatly diminished. Despite the fact that after the completion of the negotiations, Zelensky received a pre-agreed package of military assistance in the amount of $ 60 million, he did not manage to discuss his plans with Biden: the introduction of sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and consideration of a specific plan for Ukraine’s accession to NATO. …

Obviously, $ 60 million in aid from Washington will calm Kiev for a moment. Against this background, the American observer stressed that the United States and the European Union need to clearly explain that the Ukrainians will not receive any support if a major military offensive is launched on the territory of the LPR and Crimea.
