Biden backs Ukrainian president’s militarist policies in phone conversation

[wsws.org]

{Despite claiming that his government was ready to enter direct peace negotiations with Moscow and abide by the 2015 Minsk protocols peace agreement, Zelensky is well aware that both requests constitute a provocation to Moscow and would set his country even further down the path of war.

Biden’s backing of Ukraine’s “sovereignty” is particularly telling as it directly contradicts the 2015 Minsk protocols, which call for Ukraine to grant special federated status to the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Lugansk.}

Both cities, along with Crimea, choosing on their own behalf to separate themselves from Ukraine after the illegal coup. In other words, as is the case with westernized nations, sovereignty and democracy are a 2 way street when it comes to capitalist rule. Their ideology attempting to turn it into a one way street through hypocrisy. Democracy wasn't present when they forced a president into exile fleeing for Russia in 2014. Democracy wasn't present when their new puppet government began a campaign of genocide which is still bombing those cities on nearly a daily basis using the weapons and drones being sold to them.

{Zelensky also stressed to Biden that he would only enter further discussions on the Minsk protocols once Kiev was back in control of the separatist-controlled regions, essentially negating any possibility that the Minsk protocols could ever lead to a negotiated peace and end the over seven-year-long civil war that has killed over 14,000.

Despite initially coming to power over widespread popular disillusionment with the nationalist, militaristic politics of former President Petro Poroshenko, Zelensky, with the backing of NATO, has made a series of aggressive, reckless decisions that have now led his country to the brink of a full-scale war with Russia.}

A war he can't possibly win alone. He's betraying those who voted for him, and or, he has had the strings of the puppeteers attached to him.

{Earlier this year, the Ukrainian government issued a new national security strategy, announcing its intention to “recover” Crimea, the peninsula in the Black Sea that was annexed by Russia after the US-backed 2014 coup that overthrew a pro-Russian government in Kiev and threatened to deprive the Russian navy of its only major warm water port. The strategy was a clear declaration that Ukraine was preparing for war against Russia and had no intentions to peacefully resolve the civil war in the Donbass.

In September, the Biden administration explicitly expressed its support for Ukraine’s “Crimean Platform.”}

I'm fairly certain Russia isn't going to sit ideally with this. Are you ready to send your children off to another foreign land to die for fascist ideology within a nation full of political and corporate corruption?

{On December 2, Zelensky initiated five bills into the Ukrainian parliament that would be used to deny Donbass residents citizenship and voting rights. Based on these bills, the Ukrainian government would also be able to rescind citizenship from anyone participating in “actions threatening Ukraine’s national security and national interests.”

These undemocratic measures can be used to deny citizenship and voting rights not only to separatists in the Donbass, but any Ukrainian who opposes the right-wing nationalist and war-mongering policies of the Zelensky government. Rigged elections open only to “true” Ukrainian citizens—as defined by the government— would also become a real possibility.}

I don't want everyone to vote. Sounds familiar huh?

Elections are not won by a majority of people, they never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now.

And he's right. And they're doing a good job of keeping it that way. Your vote within the 2 party establishment only dictates which capitalist compliant puppet is going to be our misleadership. Whether that be the president, of congress, or of the senate. Their trickle down theory only happens within the realm of state and local politics within that same illusion. When enough people finally wake up to this and attempt to vote out this crime organization, is when we finally find out just how our vote doesn't matter. We got a good taste of that in 2016 during the democratic primary. It just went over most peoples heads.

{Despite constantly espousing rhetoric about “democracy” and “freedom,” the Zelensky government has become increasingly authoritarian, banning pro-Russian opposition media and press and openly prosecuting journalists for supposed “treason.”}

awww our little USA. How sweet.

{In late November, Zelensky warned that his government would face a coup, orchestrated by Russia and the billionaire oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, on December 1. Akhmetov, who has a net worth of $7.3 billion, owns a number of media outlets, which have become openly critical of Zelensky.

Yet, ironically, when December 1 came to pass, Zelensky was threatened not by Akhmetov or the pro-Russian opposition, but rather by the far-right, which marched on Kiev, accompanied by former President Petro Poroshenko, and demanded Zelensky’s resignation.}

When you make a false accusation and it's followed by the truth. !Priceless!
