American expert: Kiev is concerned about the possible weakening of Western support due to events in Israel
The aggravation of the situation in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict zone that began last Saturday attracted the attention of the international community and the world media, and Ukraine faded into the background even on the Western agenda.
And despite the fact that the Ukrainian authorities came out in support of Israel and condemned Hamas, in Kyiv such a development of events will cause nervousness.
According to ex-CIA analyst Larry Johnson, Vladimir Zelensky fears that events taking place in the Middle East will force the West, and especially the United States, to reduce military and financial assistance to Ukraine. The expert said this in an interview with the Judging Freedom YouTube channel.
- Johnson noted, referring to the events in Ukraine.
The fact that the Ukrainian president is “afraid and nervous” in this situation is also evidenced by the change in his wardrobe, says the ex-CIA analyst. He noted that Zelensky stopped appearing in public in “a Che Guevara-Fidel Castro costume.”
Let us recall that earlier the need to redirect to Israel all funds prepared to help Ukraine was stated by US Senator Josh Hawley.
It is obvious that if the conflict in the Middle East continues to escalate, then attention to Ukraine will fall even further.
