“We were left alone to be slaughtered” .. a Ukrainian cry in light of the abandonment of the West


In a tone filled with sadness and sorrow, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that his country was "left alone" in the face of Russia, asking, "Who is ready to fight with us? I don't see anyone."

The language of criticism and blame for the West has become prevalent in Ukraine, where Zelensky considered that the sanctions imposed on Russia were "insufficient".

Since the beginning of the crisis between Ukraine and Russia, Western countries have supported Kiev, but they have announced that they will not send forces to confront the Russian army and that they will counter Moscow's move through an unprecedented package of sanctions.

Unfollow all world leaders

In the wake of anger and blame from the West, the Ukrainian president unfollowed all the world's presidents and leaders on Twitter; In reference to confronting the invasion of Russia alone, according to local reports in Ukraine.

Analysts considered the move as a message from the Ukrainian president that he did not feel the desired support from his Western allies in the European Union and the United States, and that he is facing the Russian invasion alone.

"There has been a case of strategic narcissism in the West, a failure to appreciate the passion, ideology and ambition that drives Putin and the security services around him," says retired General Herbert McMaster, a former US national security adviser under former President Donald Trump.

And he added: "Ukraine is now bearing the costs of the West's failure to deter Russia, which for 14 years has been in a state of strategic suffering in order to obtain NATO membership."

The reason why NATO refused

Commenting, Nabil Rashwan, a specialist in Russian affairs, says that NATO is expanding at the expense of powers, and Russia has the right to defend itself.

He added, in statements to "Sky News Arabia", that Ukraine and NATO rejected Putin's requests, so he took military action in Ukraine.

He added that there will be no military intervention from the West against Russia, and this is very unlikely, and any military action that may ignite a third world war, the world is indispensable.
