Zelenskyy says wants Ukraine to become a ‘big Israel’

Al Jazeera

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said he wants his country to become a “‘big Israel’ with its own face” after the Russian invasion ends, stressing that security would likely be the main issue in Ukraine during the post-war period.

In comments to local media posted on the president’s official website on Tuesday, Zelenskyy stressed that his vision for Ukraine’s post-conflict future included having armed forces in “all institutions, supermarkets, cinemas, there will be people with weapons”.

In Israel, images of armed civilians, settlers and soldiers are commonplace, and the government invokes security frequently.

Zelenskyy, who is Jewish, has on several occasions stressed the importance of maintaining close ties with Israel, which he hailed as a model for Ukraine.

“I am sure that our security issue will be number one in the next 10 years,” Zelenskyy said, dismissing the idea that post-war Ukraine would emulate a liberal European democracy such as Switzerland as a model. He said that the Ukrainian people “will be our great army”.

Zelenskyy also said that Ukraine would not be “absolutely liberal, European”; that it would have to undertake a different modus operandi.

“Ukraine will definitely not be what we wanted it to be from the beginning. It is impossible,” he told members of the Ukrainian media during a briefing.

“Absolutely liberal, European – it will not be like that. It [Ukraine] will definitely come from the strength of every house, every building, every person.”

Zelenskyy stressed that Ukraine would not slide into authoritarianism. “An authoritarian state would lose to Russia. People know what they are fighting for,” he said.

Despite his ties with Israel, Zelenskyy has, however, been critical of the government’s awkward position on the Russian war on his country. After maintaining a relatively quiet position on the invasion, Israel’s prime minister came out with a statement condemning the alleged atrocities in Bucha, near Kyiv.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told reporters on Tuesday that he was shocked by the gruesome images emerging from Bucha, but he stopped short of accusing Russian forces of carrying out alleged war crimes or holding Moscow accountable.

“We are, of course, shocked by the harsh scenes in Bucha. Terrible images, and we strongly condemn them,” he said. “The suffering of the citizens of Ukraine is huge, and we are doing everything we can to help.”

Israel has emerged as a mediator in efforts to end the war, given its good relations with both Ukraine and Russia. In an effort to preserve his relationship with Vladimir Putin, Bennett has been measured in his criticism of the Russian president. Instead, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid has been vocal in his more harsh condemnation of Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

Bennett referred reporters to the comments made by Lapid, who labelled the civilian deaths in Bucha a war crime.

“The images and testimony from Ukraine are horrific, Russian forces committed war crimes against a defenceless civilian population. I strongly condemn these war crimes,” Lapid said in a statement.

    1. Thank You for making sure that this Truth has been well known to most FTTWRs for a very long time.
      Any new people who are starting down this path to Truth but are way, way, far behind the learning curve. Will hopefully be given a jump start by looking into this.
      Kissinger said ~10+/- years ago that he thought Israel would not exist in ~10 years. I was hoping for scorched earth first strike nuclear weapons and “Rods From God”. Vacks poisoning from forced womandates is OK, too. As long as I see ZERO American dead bodies and lots of young dead Israeli military bodies? I’m cool with that. Accompanied by a massive immigration of the “Devil’s chosen ones” to the Ukraine from the US, London, Europe, Australia, Jew Zealand and Israhell.

  1. Imagine saying that you want to model your country after a country that has been perpetuating genocide for many decades?!!! High aspirations, eh?

    And NATO on the sidelines, as if to say, “This can happen to your country, too. You can live with constant threats and attacks. Obey, or the world will morph into a complete defense position of fighting one phantom enemy or another.”

    The Bill of Rights flies in the face of NATO, of ZELENSKY, and of any other threat to freedom. It is the banner of our birthright and none can remove it. That is our fight: to remove those who would ATTEMPT to remove our Bill of Rights, hence our right to live free!!!!!!!!


  2. Well gee thanks Zelensky for finally admitting to the whole world what truth researchers have known for decades about the FACT that most of Ukraine (as well as parts of Russia and Kazakhstan and more) was once within the Khazar Empire, home to NON-SEMITIC ASHKENAZI JEWS (who converted to Talmudic Judaism in the 8th century)! Funny how the truth comes out when one least expects it…. Gee, even the media outfit the Times of Israel admitted this in 2011…and Arthur Koestler in the 70s…and Eran Elhaik and Shlomo Sand in the 80s and 90s… Keep it up, Zelensky!

  3. “Zelenskyy stressed that his vision for Ukraine’s post-conflict future included having armed forces in “all institutions, supermarkets, cinemas, there will be people with weapons”.

    Gee…Sounds all very fascist to me.

    So they’re saying the Israeli people and Ukrainian people can be armed on the streets and in cinemas and shopping centers but us Americans can’t.

    Yea, I see how it is.

  4. So he wants Ukraine to be a state instead of a country? Overrun with corrupt chosenites? Stick their face rudders into everything?

    Why? It must be for the game. That or he is good at crying while striking others.
