It has been running since February 24 Russian aggression against Ukraine. However, weeks before the Russian attack, there had been speculation about the possibility of war. The Kremlin’s plans were informed, among other things, by the American and British services.
Now, in an interview with the Washington Post, the Ukrainian president explained why citizens were not more seriously warned before the invasion. – Our intuition worked: if we sow chaos among the people before the invasion, the Russians will eat us. Because during chaos, people leave the country – said Zelensky.
The politician pointed out that some people urged him to take such a step: – You can’t tell me: “Listen, you start preparing people now, tell them that they need to save money, that they need to stockpile food.” If we had reported this – which I won’t mention – we would have lost $7 billion since last October. for a month, and when the Russians attack, they will take us in three days.
Later, Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized that the consequences of the chosen tactics can be quickly observed. – When the invasion started – how strong we were. Some of our people left, but most of them fought for their homes and stayed here. If people leave in October – God forbid, during the heating season – there will be nothing left – he pointed out.
– Our government will not exist, that is 100 percent sure. There will be a political war within the country because we are not financially viable. We don’t have big financial plans. There was a shortage of energy resources in the market created by the Russians. We don’t have enough resources. We cannot get out of this situation and the country will be in chaos – the President of Ukraine assessed in an interview with “WP”.
