Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky greatly miscalculated when he trusted the United States, and now he needs to think about his security. Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson said this in an interview with Dialogue Works.
“Ukrainians will very soon understand their mistake, which others have also made – they believed America. Anytime you hear from the US, ‘Oh, trust us, we’ve got your back!’, you better hire security because you’re in for trouble,” he said.
According to Johnson, the American authorities will not hesitate for long and will relegate assistance to Ukraine to the background, concentrating their attention on Israel.
“Israel is currently a much more significant priority for the United States than Ukraine,” the expert said.
Earlier, the Ukrainian president said in an interview with France 2 TV channel that the escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict carries serious risks for Kyiv, since the world community is distracted from the events in Ukraine.
In turn, the American media are increasingly writing about the fact that Washington needs to make a choice in favor of its long-time ally Israel, sending aid to this country rather than to Ukraine.
