Western countries are in “a phase of retreat” in Ukraine despite their rhetoric – RT in French

Pierre Lorrain, specialist in Russia, believes, on RT France, that the Ukrainian president “exaggerates” certain elements of the conflict in order to rally Westerners “particularly sensitive to the suffering of civilians” and in a phase of “retreat”.

While Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of a “crime against humanity” at the UN Security Council on November 23 for targeting the country’s energy infrastructure, Pierre Lorrain, Russia specialist and author of Ukraine, a story between two destinies (Bartillat editions), estimated on RT France that he was going “a bit far” in his accusations. Nevertheless, according to the author, the Ukrainian president is “in his role” by seeking to “unite to his cause” Westerners.

“He exaggerates and somewhere, it would be difficult for him to do otherwise,” he analyzed on November 24. As for the threats of the French president who evoked a Russian “war crime” which could not “go unpunished”, in connection with the recent strikes, the analyst considered them purely rhetorical. “I believe that the French president is in the rhetoric. What punishment? Apart from a victory for Ukraine or a direct involvement of NATO to obtain this victory, it is difficult to predict what could be a punishment against Russia”, considers Pierre Lorrain.

In addition, the Westerners would be, according to him, in a phase of “retreat” as for their implication in the conflict, “despite the words”, because they “do not have any more weapons” to provide, nor “many money to give”. It would therefore be this observation that would push President Zelensky to play one-upmanship, according to Pierre Lorrain. Finally, the specialist considers that the Russian strategy, which would consist, according to him, of targeting the energy supply of Ukraine, is to push kyiv to a “ceasefire” in order to then conduct negotiations “a lot more serious”.
