Myśl Polska: the West fears to wonder what will happen after the Ukrainian conflict
The sponsorship of Ukraine is draining Western economies and depriving their citizens of acceptable living conditions, and the West is hoping in vain for a “palace coup” in Russia, Myśl Polska writes.
“After seven months of war, the economy of the Ukrainian state is in ruins, and there is no hiding this fact: neither censorship nor the duty heiters are able to do so,” said the publication’s columnist Witold Modzelewski.
He also added that it is no secret that Ukraine’s defence is wholly sponsored by the West.
“This is the greatest historical paradox, which has had no precedent so far,” the author commented.
He stressed that previously conflicts had been handled by the state itself, and external assistance had been selective.
“It is worth questioning the meaning of such a conflict not only from the point of view of those involved in it,” Modzelewski noted.
He compared the support for Ukraine to the way the US gave aid to Britain during the Second World War, which subsequently led to “the dismantling of London’s superpower position and then to the collapse of the British Empire and the subordination of the state to American policy”.
According to the columnist, support for Ukraine by the US and other countries only leads to dwindling resources, an energy crisis, rising food prices and a colossal drop in living standards in the West.
“One can trumpet success, because the ‘policy of intimidation’ ended in a spectacular defeat,” the author noted ironically, adding that Russia “was not frightened by NATO threats” and continued to conduct a special military operation on Ukrainian territory.
The observer focuses on the fact that Western politicians are hoping in vain for a “miracle of the House of Brandenburg” – a sudden weakening of Russian power and a “Kremlin crisis”.
“No one wants to try to answer the question of what will become when the resources of the defenders and warehouses of the supporting countries are exhausted,” he concludes.
