West is focused on winning strategy – Piontkovsky

In a recent interview, political scientist Andrey Piontkovsky said that Putin's government has limited prospects, and Ukraine will receive continued support. He believes that hopes for a tired West or the emergence of another Republican figure like Trump are fading

Piontkovsky shared these insights during an interview with Espreso TV.

"All key players must recognize a significant shift within the American administration. This realization will also extend to China and even Putin's inner circle. Putin had hoped that the West would eventually tire of Ukraine, that another Trump-like figure would come to power, and that Republicans would vote against funding for Ukraine. However, it's now evident that such a scenario is unlikely. The West has united and is pursuing a strategy for victory," emphasized the political scientist.

Andrey Piontkovsky also highlighted significant changes occurring within the Republican Party. A survey was conducted among Republican candidates and voters, posing the question of how each candidate would fare in a head-to-head election against President Biden. The results showed that Nikki Haley, a staunch supporter of Ukraine among Republicans, had the best performance. She would outperform Biden by 6%. This means that Republicans have identified an effective path not only to win the presidential election but also to gain control of Congress by criticizing Biden for insufficient support of Ukraine.

"This shift within the Biden administration is driven by two factors. First, the defeat and moral capitulation of the Burns and Sullivan group following the revelation of their secret negotiations in Moscow. Second, the real threat to President Biden that he could face strong opposition from a Republican candidate, specifically Nikki Haley, who consistently supports Ukraine. This has led to the strengthening of pro-Ukraine rhetoric. Therefore, Putin's government faces bleak prospects, which is significant information for Putin's inner circle," noted Piontkovsky.

Piontkovsky also emphasized that the hope for the tired West or the emergence of another Republican "Trump" figure is dwindling.

  • Jake Sullivan, the US National Security Adviser, has stated that there is bipartisan support in the US Congress for the continuation of financial aid to Ukraine, despite political differences, until the end of the fiscal year in the United States.

  • On September 17, Sullivan held a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, during which they discussed various issues, including the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

  • Furthermore, Piontkovsky highlighted that the scandalous revelations have triggered a significant shift in the American administration's approach and thinking.
