Zelensky proven to be no joke
March 10, 2022
As if the attack on Ukraine by Russia hasn’t been immoral enough, the violation of the cease-fire in the independent area of Donetsk where 260,000 civilians are trying to escape through Volnovaksha or Mariupol on the Sea of Azov, has been criminal.
Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, has remained in Ukraine with his wife and two kids. He may have been a stand-up comic and played the president of his country in a comic series (before he became the democratically actual president of his country), but he has proven to be no joke.
Putin blames the Ukranian leadership for the deaths of so many Ukranians because Ukraine under Zelensky hasn’t folded right away like Crimea did when Putin illegally took it in 2014. Putin acts as though his launching of missles, the firing of flame-throwers, and rolling of tanks through towns has nothing to do with all those unnecessary deaths.
The people in small rural towns have made the Russian advance difficult: they’ve dug trenches, pulled up street signs, and act clueless so as to get the intruders lost---the way the Poles did over a hundred-fifty years ago. (Polish jokes were first started by Russian invaders who couldn’t get any information out of the locals who appeared dumb, but who were secretly crazy like foxes.)
