Ukraine’s President-elect Vladimir Zelensky made nervous by Vladimir Putin
Ukrainian political scientist, economist, Director of a private Foundation of the Institute of society transformation Oleg Soskin tried to predict how the presidency Zelensky will affect relations between Russia and Ukraine. This writes Glavred.
The expert believes that when Vladimir Zelensky will receive the powers of the President of Ukraine, for the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and other ruling elites will come a difficult period. The reason is that “they don’t play.”
“After all Putin is a KGB, and these are always laid out on shelves. And Zelensky does not work, it is impossible to “sort through”, he has a lot of aliases, and this is its advantage,” explains Soskin.
According to the expert, representatives of Russian politics, Zelensky is a “pig in a poke”, because at the moment it is absolutely impossible to predict how it will behave. Soskin is sure that Putin will not be able to make contact with Vladimir Zelensky. The Russian President would have been easy to build relationships with Poroshenko or Tymoshenko because they are predictable and clear, but Zelensky plays by the rules.
It was also reported that Oleg Soskin predicts serious conflict between Zelensky and Putin — their opposition can be considered a classic conflict between two alpha males. While it is too early to speak about winners or losers. However, Vladimir Zelensky has a handicap — he is young and “diverse” is used to play the role. Putin is such a talent deprived.
“So, Zelensky may be more promising. Besides, he will attack Putin,” explains Soskin.
According to the expert, Zelensky nothing to lose, which distinguishes it from Putin or Poroshenko. “Tree Roshen” or any kind of political circuit will not hamper his actions, and Zelensky will become a truly open public political player.
Recall, Zelensky named the Ministers with whom “say goodbye” in the first place.
As reported Politeka, Zelensky decided on the date of the inauguration, but there is one “but”.
Also Politeka wrote that Poroshenko desperately opposed Zelensky: “my God, Volodya, please.”
