Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy evidenced some clinically telling behavior on Feb. 25. On CNN, he was asked about the rather obvious comment by Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), that the outcome of the war would not change even if Ukraine gets $60 billion in military aid from the U.S. It is a fairly obvious point, if for no other reason than that Ukraine doesn’t have the live bodies to man the weapons needed. Regardless, Zelenskyy threatened Vance with the responsibility for killing “millions.” He said he wasn’t sure if Vance “understands what is going on here…. To understand it is to come to the front line to see what’s going on, to speak with the people, then to go to civilians to understand … what will [happen to] them without this support. And he will understand that millions … will be killed. It’s a fact.”

Then before Ukrainians, on national television (as part of the “Ukraine Year 2024” event), Zelenskyy explained that Kremlin agents were active in Ukraine and the U.S., and they were the reason the counteroffensive failed. He started by announcing a brand new counteroffensive. “We have a plan, a clear plan. Several plans will be prepared because of information leaks.” That’s because the fewer people who know the real plan, the better. Last time, allies who sent us weaponry had to know our plans, and that, he implied, was a problem. “The plans for our counteroffensive actions last autumn were on the table in the Kremlin before those counteroffensive actions had even started.”
