During his visit to the United States, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Henry Kissinger, a well-known diplomat, scientist and politician, one of the most influential geostrategists in the United States.
This was announced by the head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak.
According to him, the president and Kissinger had a "really deep conversation."
"Before this war, I was against Ukraine's membership in NATO, because I was afraid that it would start exactly the process that we see now. Now that the process has reached such a level, the idea of a neutral Ukraine in such conditions no longer makes sense," the head of the Office of the President quotes Kissinger.
According to Yermak, Henry Kissinger is now one of Ukraine's lobbyists in NATO.
Who is Henry Kissinger and how does he feel about Ukraine?
Henry Kissinger is the creator and ideologue of the policy of détente of international tension (détente) with the USSR. He participated in many negotiations between the United States and the Soviet Union.
He was repeatedly criticized for excessive commitment to the USSR, and then to the Russian Federation. In particular, in 2008, Kissinger opposed Ukraine's admission to NATO and stated that Ukraine should remain in the sphere "which the Russians consider to be the space of their own self-awareness."
On May 26, 2022, at the economic forum in Davos, Kissinger advised Ukraine to give up some of its territories to Russia, which caused a wave of criticism from President Volodymyr Zelensky.
However, in July 2022, he changed his mind and stated that Ukraine should not cede its territories. On August 13, 2022, Kissinger admitted that he was wrong when he did not support Kyiv's Euro-Atlantic aspirations and added that Ukraine should be treated as a NATO country.
In May of this year, Kissinger told when the war in Ukraine would end and announced the timing of the start of negotiations with Russia. He also warned that humanity is on the verge of World War III.
