MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. The United States and NATO are handling processes in Ukraine so Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky cannot be viewed as an independent politician, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
"It is as impossible to talk about Vladimir Zelensky’s independence now as it was before. His curators are standing behind him. It is first and foremost about Washington and NATO structures that have been handling the process for years one way or another, so it is counterproductive to talk about Zelensky’s statements. He says one thing today and says another thing tomorrow," she noted.
Zakharova pointed out that the Ukrainian president had no control over the situation in the country. "Zelensky makes statements in various states. The state that he is in changes his personality. It’s obvious, the whole world sees related footage quite regularly," the Russian diplomat added.
