Alexey Pushkov, a member of the Federation Council, made a publication on his Telegram channel, in which he called the trip of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States a failure.
Pushkov believes that against the background of the statement of American leader Joe Biden about Afghanistan and the “world media storm” caused by the “flight” of the Americans from the Taliban, Zelensky’s visit went unnoticed.
“As a matter of fact, the White House has no time for Ukraine. There my head hurts about something else. All the words on duty will be spoken, but in terms of image, Zelensky’s trip fell victim to the “Afghan syndrome” in the United States and looks like a failure. The third-rate country again asks for something from America, which has great difficulties and is not up to it now … “- Pushkov writes in his Telegram.
It is worth recalling that Vladimir Zelensky and his wife Elena flew to Washington on August 31 to meet with American President Joe Biden. Zelensky, in turn, said that the heads of the two states intend to discuss important issues of strategic partnership.
