New Push to Get Ukraine Into NATO Shows Zelensky ‘Running Out of Props’

Sputnik International ~ October 6, 2022

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s latest desperate attempt to convince Western politicians that Kiev can now join NATO is a sign that he is running out of props, analysts told Sputnik.

Zelensky ‘Running Out of Props’

On Friday, Zelensky said that Ukraine was applying to join NATO in an expedited manner after the DPR, the LPR, the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions decided to join Russia.

“He is running out of props… so he is grasping at whatever mirage might save him,” University of Pittsburgh Professor of International Affairs Michael Brenner said on Monday. “Thus, the idea of joining NATO.”

The fantasy that his Western masters would allow Ukraine to join NATO revealed the imaginary nature of the world Zelensky lived in, Brenner observed.

“Of course, it never will happen because it would mean all-out war with Russia. Even the lunatics in Washington are not that suicidal,” he said.

Zelensky is a TV producer and actor, Brenner added, who improbably finds himself the star player in a real life drama of historic importance.

“He is at once script writer, director and central character. The worlds of fiction and actuality have merged in his mind – Stanislavsky method acting to the extreme,” Brenner told Sputnik. “At the same time, he knows that to keep the show on the road, he has to follow instructions from Washington, which is the uber director.”

So, he must do anything that keeps the war going – not for Ukraine but for an American strategic victory – in other words, to bleed the Russian and weaken them, he said.

The Americans felt no loyalty or special ties to Zelensky, whatever he believed to the contrary, Brenner stressed.

“As long as Zelensky serves this purpose, they will keep him as their champion – when he becomes a liability, they will drop him, like [1960s South Vietnam President Ngo Dinh] Diem in Vietnam,” he said.

Retired veteran Pentagon analyst Chuck Spinney commented that the NATO membership fantasy was an absurd aspiration even for Zelensky and that it revealed his fading grip on reality.

“It is beyond stupid. Which raises a question of why do it now? Has someone given him a green light or is Zelensky going off the rails?” Spinney told Sputnik. “My impression is that he is becoming more erratic. His quasi-Hitlerite stance of fighting to the last man to save territory may be an indicator of instability.”

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye be not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows” Matthew 24:6-8
