Zelenskyy fails to meet Putin's expectations - politician Feygin

Russian opposition politician Mark Feygin believes that Putin and his entourage have always been wrong to rely on Ukraine's new president, including Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who failed to meet their expectations

He expressed this opinion on Espreso TV.

"Putin's political bet is to change the political decisions of the new US leadership if it comes to power. Everyone is waiting to see whether Trump will come or Biden will stay, which is no longer so likely. And the Kremlin's tactics and strategy are already guided by this. They may be wrong, they may be inadequately assessing the situation. But they also realize that the situation can change for the better. Although, to be honest, whenever they have relied on political change, they have been wrong. Every new president of Ukraine they had hopes for, including Zelenskyy, has failed to live up to their expectations," Feygin explained.

The politician noted that if Trump becomes the next president of the United States, his policies will probably not be favorable to Putin.

"The same can be said for every new administration in America. After all, Trump, who occupied the Oval Office in 2016-2020, rhetorically supported Putin, and there were many claims against him in this regard, up to and including an investigation and an attempted impeachment. But the Javelins and Stingers were delivered under Trump as well. And when they killed a general in Iran, it already looked like a confrontation on Trump's part, hoping for some kind of solution. So perhaps Putin is mistaken in his expectations, relying on a protracted war until the results of the US election - they may disappoint him greatly," he added.

  • On December 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a press conference summarizing the results of the year: he stated that the goals of the war against Ukraine remained unchanged.
  • On December 17, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that after joining NATO, Finland could have problems with Russia. He also announced the creation of the Leningrad Military District.
  • On December 21, Putin instructed the Defense Ministry to conduct the fall conscription of 2024 using a unified military registration register and electronic summonses.
