I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve about heard enough from Ukraine’s actor/Prime Minister Volodymyr Zelensky.
The man has continued to demand money form the United States is spite of the billions upon billions of dollars that he’s already received.
He’s also been basically urging for World War 3 and US involvement for months.
Zelensky may have just pissed off the entire United States with his most recent comments…
He just made a bold demand revealing just what exactly he wants from the US.
Volodmyr Zelensky wants your sons and daughters to fight this war for him, and he fully expects them to die.
Check this out:
Zelensky has no idea what he just did. HUGE mistake.
Taking our tax dollars is one thing. We are already not used to getting any of it anyways.
But now he is talking about taking the lives of the American children for his war?

This man has the nerve to say this in front of the world.
He wants the United States to sacrifice their children for a war that he can’t fight for himself.
Americans are not happy with these comments:
Zelensky says it is "dangerous" for Americans to question the amount of aid being given to Ukraine because "if Ukraine loses, Russia is going to enter Baltic states, NATO member states and the U.S. will have to send their sons and daughters to war and they will be dying." pic.twitter.com/wB9VnIgrSh

The way Zelensky sits on stage demanding that American's die for a war that the Ukrainians can not fight themselves.
They want your money, they want your family, and ultimately, the Global Elite don't care if it costs your life to fulfil their ends. https://t.co/mOgX2QIswV

Our involvement is Ukraine isn’t worth the loss of a single American soldier’s life.
But today Zelensky argued that the United States has to send its sons and daughters to die on their soil.
It’s time to leave Ukraine to Europe. It’s not our problem and it’s not our fight.

Americans give their answer to Zelensky's demand that eventually American sons and daughters will also have to fight and die in Ukraine…. pic.twitter.com/rUSLRZwK3Y

Nobody should be surprised here.
Word is, Zelensky can’t even convince his own citizens to fight for him, so of course he’s demanding that the United States step in.
Zelensky, even with martial law declared, is having so much difficulty finding Ukrainian men willing to fight and die in the war that they are using extreme and often violent means to conscript unwilling soldiers. Corruption is one of the few ways out:https://t.co/DCgHTDw8J4

Here’s more on the Ukraine military’s recruitment tactics from the Economist:
Ruslan kubay was surprised to receive a draft notice in late January. Registered as seriously disabled since childhood—Mr Kubay is missing both hands—he falls under a list of automatic exemptions from service. Even more surprising, however, was the reaction of officials at the local registration office in Drohobych, near Lviv. Far from admitting their error, they doubled down and declared him fit for service. Only a social-media post and subsequent national scandal reversed the decision. “I was disgusted by how easily our blind people can start seeing,” he wrote on Facebook.
Mr Kubay’s case was an extreme, but far from isolated, incident. Ukraine has visibly stepped up mobilisation activities in the first two months of this year. For unclear reasons, officials in western Ukraine have been the most aggressive, but the trend is clear across the country. There have been reports of draft notices issued (and sometimes violently enforced) at military funerals in Lviv, checkpoints in Kharkiv, shopping centres in Kyiv and on street corners in Odessa. Popular ski resorts lie deserted despite the first proper snows of the winter—footage of military officials snooping around at the slopes was enough to keep the crowds away. In every town and city across the country social-media channels share information about where recruitment officers might be lurking.
