10. I'm with you on your assessment. I also believe trump/putin and maybe Zelenskyy knew in advance

Zelenskyy was going to cave. I read that allegedly putin and Zelenskyy had a private mtg. very recently and note what seemed to be an outrageous remark trump made to Zelenskyy last week regarding "working with" putin.

Emphatically agree also that trump is the most corrupt traitor ever occupying the White House.

How Trump’s Response to the Ukraine Scandal Helped Russia"

This memo (trump/Zelenskyy call), Fedchenko notes, can be cited by pro-Russia propagandists to show that “Trump won’t really do anything to protect Ukraine,” and Zelensky’s remarks about Germany and France can be used by pro-Russia elements to contend that Europe won’t be a stalwart defender of Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. “This material is useful for Russia propaganda,” Fedchenko says. “You can recycle it and say that now Ukraine is corrupting the US system and portray the Ukrainian government as an incompetent state and deny the agency of Ukraine. You can say it’s completely dependent on the US position.”

Fedchenko is the director of the Mohyla School of Journalism at National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy and a founder of the StopFake.org fact-checking website, which combats Russian disinformation about Ukraine.
