RFK Jr: Zelensky Could Have Avoided Conflict With Russia by Saying ‘No’ to NATO

Sputnik – 03.05.2023

WASHINGTON – Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said on Wednesday that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had a chance to avoid the conflict with Russia by simply refusing to join NATO.

“In 2019 actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelensky ran as the peace candidate winning the Ukrainian presidency with 70% of the vote. As Benjamin Abelow observes in his brilliant book, ‘How the West Brought War to Ukraine,’ Zelenskyy almost certainly could have avoided the 2022 war with Russia simply by uttering five words – ‘I will not join NATO,'” Kennedy said in a tweet.

According to Kennedy, Zelensky was forced to continue the dangerous path to NATO by neoconservatives in the Biden administration and by violent fascist elements within the Ukrainian government.

Moreover, Zelensky even allowed the United States to place its nuclear-capable Aegis missile launchers along Ukraine’s 1,200-mile border with Russia and thereby provoked Russia, the presidential candidate added.

Moscow launched its special military operation in Ukraine in February 2022. Russian and Ukrainian delegations have engaged in several rounds of peace talks since then, but the negotiations ultimately reached an impasse. Russia has insisted that it is open for talks with Kiev, even after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree prohibiting negotiations with Moscow in October 2022.

    Jewish Oligarchs!
    No one is mentioning the KOSHER Elephant in the room!

    Brian Lamb:
    what was the most interesting part of writing this book?
    Leslie Cockburn
    There are a number of things. For example, one particular part which I found most interesting was we talk about Israeli operations in Colombia and some of the Israeli commandos who trained the hit squads of the Medellin cartel. It turns out that they had trained us in Israel as well when they were between trips to Colombia. These were the same people who also trained most of the top commanders in the Guatemalan military and also trained the Contras. They had a firm that was under license to the Israeli Ministry of Defense, and then they’d turn up in the jungles of Puerto Boyac in Colombia. So, we had a lot of adventures, I must say.
    Someone said to us,
    “Do you know what the function of the Jerusalem Post is?”
    We said, “What?”
    He said, “It’s to give the American ambassador a happy breakfast.”
    So they’re very conscious of, “Hebrew is for us and English is for everyone else.”

  2. Zelensky had two reasons he could not just say no. The first had to do with the array of forces in the US/UK/NATO triumvirate against Russia that intended to use Ukraine in a proxy war on Russia. A war of attrition that would bleed Russia white. It was these fascists that pulled down the government of President Yanukovych in a coup Feb. 2014. And the second reason has to do with neoNazi fascists that flooded Ukraine’s governmental departments and military under Presidents Yaytsenyk and Poreshenko after the coup. President Z may control his head but Nato and the Nazis control his neck. The neoNazis had warned Z, that if he signed the Minsk Accords he would be “hanging from the Maidan”.
