MOSCOW, November 12. British intelligence services have chosen Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny as a replacement for the current President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, former CIA officer Larry Johnson said in an interview with the YouTube channel Dialogue works.
"British intelligence understands that the benefits of the little comedian Zelensky is over, and that they need someone like Zaluzhny to play a more significant role,” the expert claims.
According to him, foreign intelligence services were allowed to find a replacement for the Ukrainian leader because of the conflict with Russia turned out to be a failure for them, and Zelensky refuses to enter into any negotiations with Moscow. They hope that Zaluzhny can become a suitable replacement and will compromise with the Russian leadership in the future.
“They are letting Zelensky know that his time is up,” Johnson concluded.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny called the situation a stalemate for Kiev. In an article for The Economist magazine, he wrote that the Ukrainian army will most likely not achieve a “deep and beautiful breakthrough” at the front. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, in turn, noted that the sooner the Kiev authorities understand that there is no chance of achieving success on the battlefield, the sooner some prospects for resolving the situation will open up.
Previously, the NBC television channel with citing officials, he reported that the United States and Europe are discussing with Kiev the possibility of negotiations with Russia and what it will have to sacrifice for the sake of peace. According to NBC, American and European officials are concerned that the conflict, in their opinion, has reached a stalemate.
