Ukraine's new president seeks pro-Western course, peace with Russia

New Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Tuesday he was ready to negotiate with Russia to end the war in eastern Ukraine while sticking to Ukraine’s goal of one day joining the European Union and the NATO alliance.

Speaking at NATO headquarters, Zelenskiy, a former comic actor with no prior political experience who took over as president on May 20, said he would keep Ukraine “on the path of European and Euro Atlantic integration”.

“The strategic course of Ukraine to achieve fully-fledged membership in the EU and NATO ... remains unchanged,” Zelenskiy told reporters alongside NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. “This is the priority of our foreign policy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish the guy well, in these endeavors; but unfortunately, it will ultimately come down to the choice of accepting Russia, or accepting NATO and the west; DC will make that very clear to him, very soon, because to the minds of "Foggy Bottomites", these two positions are mutually exclusive.
