Ukrainian President Wants ‘US Power’ to Drive Russia Out of Crimea, Donbass

While visiting Lithuania, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held a joint press conference with his host, President Gitanas Nauseda, in Vilnius, the capital, in which he advocated bringing the U.S. into the Normandy Format.

The latter was established in 2014 after the U.S.-supported coup in Ukraine and the start of the ongoing war in the Donbass. Its members are Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany. Bringing Washington into the process is analogous to Mexico inviting Russia to mediate border and immigration issues with the U.S.

The Ukrainian head of state, not noted for his statesmanship or finesse, bluntly blurted out: “If we see deceleration in the Normandy format, I say frankly about this, I think that there is a deceleration. Therefore, I want countries – strong countries, powerful geopolitical players – to join the format so that they can influence the Russian Federation, which means the end of the war in Ukraine.” Ending the war, that is, by driving Russia and its Black Sea Fleet out of Crimea and subjugating the Donetsk and Lugansk republics. The U.S. is decidedly, particularly in military terms, a strong country and a powerful geopolitical player.
