Zelensky Needs Handlers to Reign Him In – Watch

Handlers around Ukrainian President Zelensky need to step up their game and keep him from mistakes that might have significant consequences for his people. 

A Russian-made missile recently stuck a building in Poland on Tuesday and it killed two Polish civilians. This led to a massive response from media around the world. Some were ready to get NATO involved and invoke Article Four or Article Five which would set the table for a united conflict with Putin’s forces in Russia. 

But here’s the major problem, the missile was Ukrainian. That is the conclusion the United States and other allies have decided on. It seems clear that this was right because Poland canceled the emergency meeting of NATO that was called. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is not going with the collective program, he is only accepting one explanation even if it is being proven wrong. Zelensky wrote on social media in the aftermath of the explosion and blamed Russia calling it a terrorist attack and he demanded that NATO act immediately. 

“Terror is not limited to our national borders. Russian missiles hit Poland … NATO territory. This is a Russian missile attack on collective security — a very significant escalation. We must act,” Zelensky wrote. 

It is just out of bounds for Zelensky to move so quickly on the internet and make such demands on NATO to attack Russia based on assumptions. No one will benefit from an all-out war between NATO and Russia, and you certainly don’t get it started with a Twitter post without a detailed investigation. 

It just seems like maybe Zelensky did have all the facts, knew it was Ukrainian and tried to set off a major worldwide conflict. 

Let’s hope that is not what happened, and let’s hope that Zelensky’s people can reign him in and the country can get back on course to maintain its stand against Putin.
