Zelenskyy big mad because Biden’s not doing enough to start WW III

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrogantly hammered President Biden, asserting that allowing his country to strike within Russia with U.S. weapons doesn’t go far enough and that America needs to do more.

Zelenskyy made the comment while speaking during Asia’s top security summit in Singapore. He thanked Biden for allowing U.S. weaponry to be used inside Russia but then chastised him, claiming that all restrictions need to be withdrawn. It was part of a not-so-subtle warning concerning the president’s anticipated attendance at a Kyiv-led peace summit in Switzerland next month. It is not certain Biden will even attend the event.

“Biden’s absence from the talks on June 15 and 16—which will be aimed at developing a common understanding of a path toward a just and lasting peace in Ukraine—would be like giving Russian President Vladimir Putin a standing ovation, Zelenskyy told reporters during a press briefing in Brussels, Belgium,” Newsweek reported.

“If [Biden] is not present, it will be just like applauding Putin: personally applauding and doing so standing,” Zelenskyy angrily said.

The Ukrainian president wants to strike Russia freely and he evidently wants the U.S. to brazenly back all of his moves even if it leads to World War III.

“The US last week gave Ukraine permission to use American missiles to fire into Kharkiv, where Russian troops have been building up in numbers. But this is the only area they are allowed to fire into, and Ukraine is only allowed to fire certain weapons,” the Daily Mail reported.

“Is that sufficient? No. Why? Because I have given you the example of airfields from which Russia is permanently firing, in calm, knowing that Ukraine will not fire back because it has no corresponding systems and no permissions,” Zelenskyy contended.

The Ukrainian president went on to charge that the Russians were taking advantage of Ukraine having its hands tied over the restrictions. There is nothing stopping the Russians from using their artillery and long-range weapons to strike civilian infrastructure but the same cannot be said of Ukraine.

“They have these weapons there and they do not remove them because they know that Ukraine cannot target them with Western weaponry even if they fire against us,” he pointed out.

“Ukraine imposed emergency power shutdowns in most of the country on Sunday, a day after Russia unleashed large-scale attacks on energy infrastructure and claimed it made gains in the eastern Donetsk province,” the Daily Mail noted. “The shutdowns were in place in all but three regions of Ukraine following Saturday’s drone and missile attack on energy targets that injured at least 19 people.”

“Ukraine’s state-owned power grid operator Ukrenergo said the shutdowns affected both industrial and household consumers. Sustained Russian attacks on Ukraine’s power grid in recent weeks have forced the government to institute nationwide rolling blackouts. Without adequate air defenses to counter assaults and allow for repairs, though, the shortages could still worsen as need spikes in late summer and the bitter-cold winter,” the media outlet wrote.

Kyiv’s largest thermal power plant was hit in April by Russia. Putin’s army also conducted a massive strike on May 8, hitting power generation and transmission facilities in a number of areas.

Ukraine claimed on Sunday that its air force brought down all 25 drones that were launched overnight on Saturday in another attack.

Russia, in turn, stated on Sunday that it had seized control of the village of Umanske. It is located in the partially Russian-occupied Donetsk region.

“Russia’s coordinated new offensive has centered on Ukraine’s northeastern Kharkiv region, but seems to include testing Ukrainian defenses in Donetsk farther south, while also launching incursions in the northern Sumy and Chernihiv regions,” the Daily Mail said.

“In Russia, six people were injured in shelling in the city of Shebekino in the Belgorod region bordering Ukraine, regional Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov said Sunday. He also said that a local official, the deputy head of the Korochansky district, had been killed by ‘detonation of ammunition.’ He gave no details,” the outlet further reported. “In the neighboring Kursk region, three people were injured Sunday when an explosive device was dropped from a drone, according to acting regional head Alexey Smirnov.”
