Continuing the tradition of Petro Poroshenko, Vladimir Zelensky began his political career with a big announcement. He appealed to Vladimir Putin, but not personally, just via Telegram.
From the moment Russia chose the leaders of Vladimir Putin, it has been almost 20 years. During this time his persona managed to acquire lots of speculation, rumors and secrets. Quite inconspicuous, and at first nobody knows the guy Vladimir Putin, who put in a word, Boris Yeltsin, rose to a hardened politician. Now indifferent to the Russian President, apparently, is not there. Abuse, condemn, praise, adore and fear. It probably could be considered and the new President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
After a brilliant victory of Vladimir Zelensky in the presidential elections of Ukraine have passed a lot of time, but the charismatic politician is in no hurry to make any statements. Moreover, the President of Ukraine went to rest in Turkey. Apparently, he decided to gain strength before the upcoming inauguration.
The impression that Zelensky “left shadow”, hiding. And from there, from the safe silence of the “shadow side,” Vladimir Zelensky addressed to Vladimir Putin by publishing a Telegram. The President of Ukraine said that the initiative of Vladimir Putin with simplifying the procedure of obtaining Russian citizenship for residents of Donbass – not that other, as attempt to use the Ukrainian people as “oil” – the fuel for implementing their own ideas. In addition, Vladimir Zelensky said that to take the opportunity to get Russian citizenship will be able to only those citizens of Ukraine who want to go to Russia for work, or those who want to escape from criminal prosecutions.
The leaders of other countries can advise you how best to behave at a meeting with the President of Russia. So, the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan noted that Vladimir Zelensky could succeed at negotiations with Vladimir Putin, but subject to certain conditions.
– I don’t think it will be difficult. Here is the condition: to be direct, honest, no tricks will not be difficult. Just need to openly and honestly communicate.
Vladimir Zelensky is still a long path through the political thicket in which he, one way or another, gain experience. However, in his own interest to choose in dealing with Vladimir Putin and the tactics of peaceful cooperation.
