There are quiet whispers inside various EU governments that Zelensky should resign. Inside Ukraine, it was highly suspicious that in January, conveniently, Ukraine’s leading officials in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine (similar to our FBI) charged with protecting the state and the people against illegal actions by those in power all died in a crash together. There were some who had concerns starting to question Zelensky’s ethical position with respect to the people.
This helicopter carrying the leadership team of Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs crashed in the Kyiv region killing at least 14 people, including all nine people on board, according to officials. A further 25 people were injured on the ground including 11 children. Fourteen bodies were found at the crash site, including one child and all nine people who were on board the helicopter – six ministry officials and three crew members, all died according to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine (SES).
Ukrainian National Police confirmed that Ministry of Internal Affairs Denis Monastyrsky, First Deputy Minister Yevheniy Yenin, and State Secretary Yuriy Lubkovychis were among the dead. Monastyrsky actually had replaced the previous Minister of Internal Affairs, Arsen Avakov following his unexpected resignation. Avakov was a political heavyweight. Avakov was considered by many to be one of the most powerful people in the country after Zelenskey and his chief of staff, Andriy Yermak. He oversaw about 300,000 law enforcement officials and a significant share of Ukraine’s annual budget expenditures.
There emerged a conflict between Zelensky and Avakov and it was widely assumed that Zelensky was preparing to fire Mr Avakov who was investigating internal corruption. His removal allowed Zelensky to seize more power and control any investigation into his personal dealings. This was no different than Biden telling the IRS to stop investigating his son Hunter.
Based on information and belief, Zelensky is very concerned about the “traitors” he defines as simply against him, not the people or the country. The rumors are that there are many beginning to question Zelensky’s true patriotism and his willingness to have all of Ukraine destroyed for his deal with Blackrock rather than show the slightest concern about the people of Ukraine. Avakov had served as head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs continuously since 2014. During that time, he oversaw the activities of the police and the National Guard. His removal was to cement Zelensky as a virtual dictator.
This has raised questions about the helicopter crash that eliminated Zelensky’s hand-selected Ministry of Internal Affairs who had his back.
When we look at the ECM calculated from the move of Russia to protect the Donbas from the Ukrainians in the civil war instigated by the United States Neocons, it does not appear that Zelensky’s grand scheme to make Ukraine the greatest European investment of all time with Blackrock will succeed. Why the Ukrainian people are willing to sacrifice their country all for the Donbas is insane. They had a country for the first time. The computer is suggesting it is highly doubtful that Ukraine will even survive post-2026. On top of that, we are headed into world war post-2024.
