Ukraine: Zelensky Is Now A Full-Blown Dictator

Ukraine: Zelensky Is Now A Full-Blown Dictator

From The Spectator

The news that Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky has banned eleven opposition parties – including the pro-Russian ‘Opposition – Platform For Life’ which holds 44 seats in the 450-member Ukrainian parliament and has spoken out against the Russian invasion – may be the embattled leader’s first major mistake in the month since Putin launched his brutal invasion.

Zelensky coupled the decree suspending the activities of the parties, decided on by Ukraine’s national defence and security council, with a ban on private TV stations – merging them all into a single state-run TV channel. And that could be his second big error. For Ukraine’s strongest card – the unique selling point that has drawn such sympathy and support from almost the entire democratic world – has been the fact that, in stark contrast to Putin’s repressive Russian state, it is – or was – a free country.

I did hear Dan Wootton on GB News remarking last night on Zelensky’s authoritarian behaviour in suppressing opposition politicians and imposing what amounts to State TV – but I wonder if the rest of the media in the UK is reporting this very worrying news.  If not, why not?  Is Tucker right in his assertion that our leaders would do the very same thing if they could… And might do so, yet?  Surely, the past two years have taught us that the answer to that question is a resounding “yes!”   Your thoughts.

    Zelensky is a WEF puppet. We had destabilization by plandemic: now we are in the second season: destabilization by armed conflict. All aimed to bring about the WEF New World Order. Heck, they’ve even tied aid payments in Ukraine to biometric digital passports linked to vaccine status. Zelensky is an actor delivering other people’s scripts in front of a green screen. He was cast in the rôle of leader when Obama and the other Western powers deposed the legitimately elected Ukraine government. He’s been bombing the Donbas ever since. I feel sorry for the ordinary people across the region but I certainly don’t “support Ukraine” (or Russia). We’re being played again…

      Andrew,

      Zelensky is a puppet, no question, but what struck me forcibly from Tucker Carlson’s commentary, was the fact that – as the past two years have made clear – our leaders / puppets, would not think twice about imposing even more draconian restrictions on us, if and when it suits their purpose. Right now, given the number of headlines screaming about Scotland’s ever-rising Covid cases/hospitalisation, I believe Sturgeon is angling for another lockdown. Zelensky is using the Russian invasion as his excuse for a deep and lasting power grab. Watching Sturgeon like a hawk because she’s intent on using Covid – even now – to the same end.

        ED I agree with you that We certainly need not look to Ukraine or Russia for Despot Politicians.
        Also we know and have known for a few years that anything with the name Soros attached to it is Reprobate to say the least.

        As for Sturgeon ordering ANOTHER Lockdown it wouldn’t surprise me either. As for The Ukraine War IF it’s going so bad for Putin as our Rotten M.S.M. are reporting then Putin being so Evil would use the
        M.OA.Bombs on Kiev. The Truth on our News Here is as scarce as it is in China or Russia. In My Opinion of Course.

    Tucker is 100% right in his analysis. I’m glad to see someone publicly exposing the dictatorial Zelensky.

      Tucker is a pathological liar – anything he says that you believe is to your detriment.

        Kate,

        I have followed Tucker Carlson’s commentaries for a long time now, off and on, and I’ve found him to be meticulous in providing evidence to support claims. That’s a tad uncomfortable for his enemies in the media who simply attack him, as you are doing, with allegations UN-supported by evidence. So, “Tucker is a pathological liar” – should be easy, then, for you to give us a couple of examples (one would do) but you don’t. You strike out with unsubstantiated allegations and expect us to exercise faith in your (obviously biased) opinion.

        Everything Tucker said about Zelensky is independently verifiable – because it is a fact that he has suppressed the broadcasting media and opposition politicians. He’s clearly a dictator. He was unpopular in Ukraine prior to this (some would say, very convenient) war.

        No, Tucker is not the one telling lies – that would be the mainstream media who have their own agenda. Our bloggers always document their comments so I recommend you spend some time reading over previous blog posts about world affairs here, both political and religious (because they merge – Catholics should examine world affairs in the context of Catholic Social Teaching which places Christ as the head of every nation under Heaven and we must keep that in mind as we comment on political affairs).

        So, Kate, don’t be a puppet. Think outside the box of the mainstream political and media messages, which are aimed at keeping you malleable, obedient to the diktats of the State. Tucker is good at identifying these tactics of the elite, and his willingness to comment publicly on them is what makes him unpopular with the elite and with those, like yourself, sadly, who just don’t know how to read the signs of the times – which includes the world’s elite setting up their chosen puppets to give the impression of democracy when, in fact, we are all being enslaved, as the Covid-con revealed. Our own First Minister here in Scotland is refusing to give up her power to enslave us – school-children here are having to wear the useless face-masks until AFTER the Easter holidays, for example. Gimme a break! Yes, Zelensky is a dictator as is Nicola (Stalin) Sturgeon. God help us all.

    I think it’s proof positive that Zelensky is not to be trusted that he would suppress the media and opposition parties. That’s the sign of a dictator. The fact it was Justin Trudeau who inspired him to go in for politics, is enough proof that he is not keen on democracy!

    I think we may have discussed here on Catholic Truth Scotland before that Zelensky is a puppet of a powerful Ukrainian oligarch (and billionare) named Igor (or Ihor) Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky owned the TV network that carried the sit-com “Servant of the People,” in which Zelensky starred as the President of the Ukraine. Then, after a couple of years, Kolomoisky created the “Servant of the People” political party and underwrote Zelensky’s campaign to become the real-world president that he played on TV. Kolomoisky was a governor of a Ukrainian oblast and has the money and power to “buy” people, including neo-Nazis. He formed them into groups during the 2013-2014 “color” revolution and is responsible for the torture and genocide of Russian speaking Ukrainians in the Donbas, with a goal of exterminating. them. Hence, we saw a video ad when Zelensky was running for president in which he takes machine guns in both hands in Parliament and kills all the “Russki”-sympathizing parliamentarians:

    You really can’t make this stuff up! I apologize if much of this has already been discussed in these threads. It all just keeps getting worse, and now we have to be prepared for a faux “consecration” on Friday, as well as the aftermath of it. How will Our Lord respond to our re-wording, once again, of His Blessed Mother’s specific request?

      Marinaio,

      Reading your highly informative post, my mind once again turned to the way parliamentarians here are desperate to control the internet. So, no need to apologise – I, for one, didn’t know any of the information you have posted – if I’ve read it here before (probably from your good self!) it hasn’t registered with me. It has now! I will check out the Twitter feed later.

      I just visited that Twitter link but couldn’t read the comments because they’re not in English and I can’t work out how to translate. I did watch the video extract though and that was chilling. I know it’s acting, but seeing the hate in Zelensky’s eyes said a lot. The fact that he used that during his campaign to become president, is significant IMHO.

      It’s obvious now that Zelensky is no better than Putin – they’re both thugs. It’s the poor ordinary people of Ukraine and Russia that I feel sorry for.

      That video piece on Twitter gave me the shivers. It really does make Zelensky look like a thug – and I know he was acting a part in that film but it seems all too close to home, really. I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him.

    Zelensky’s moves are no surprise for a NWO American Deep State-backed stooge, but the timing is interesting. Makes me wonder if certain “disinformation” (aka the truth) about the true nature of Ukraine since 2014 had been gaining too much traction amongst the sheeple and had to be stopped.

    Here is a succinct summary of said “disinformation,” from an article about governments subjugating their people and censoring and suppressing expression:

    “Debunking Ukraine propaganda will take some work, but it’s less demanding than Covid and will be punctured in far less time. There’s the historical record that runs counter to the “narrative”: the U.S.-backed 2014 coup, the government’s corruption, payola to American political figures and their children, neo-Nazis, the war on eastern Ukraine’s Russians, the failure of the Minsk accords, and U.S. supported bioresearch labs. These are facts, and while the mainstream media is ignoring them, the alternative media isn’t.”

    Abp. Vigano has apparently been attacked (or “reproached,” as he put it) by two pseudo-conservative Catholic writers, DeMattei and Weigel, for refusing to support a war against Russia. Here is his brilliant reply, which includes numerous facts about the Zelensky regime and related matters:

    It’s very interesting that the msm is keeping quiet about Zelensky’s corruption. It really does raise questions about the real purpose of this war in Ukraine – the rationale has been to keep it being a democracy but if that’s not the case, as it obviously isn’t now, then what is really going on?

    Just came across this episode from an old (1981) TV cop series, Barney Miller, in which an allegedly crazy man was arrested for trashing an office of the Trilateral Commission. The “crazy” man describes with perfect accuracy what the TC is planning, and of course he is viewed as a nut and a conspiracy theorist.

    As one comment below the video put it: “The recipe to discredit what was coming out.”

    Got it in one.

      RCA Victor,

      That was a brilliant clip – and it reminded me of something that happened to li’l ole me back in the 1980’s, when I was really just waking up to the crisis in the Church.

      I was visiting friends – a family I’d known for years, and a lot of them were present in the room when I visited. I can’t remember how the conversation began but it ended with me trying to convince them (and the rest of the world) that the Church was in deep crisis and, being a tad animated when I am trying to convince others (whether it’s to eat my favourite brand of chocolate or whatever it is), I held the room and imagined, in my innocence, that I had them riveted. They just had to understand that the Devil was hard at work damaging the Faith, and so I went on, and on, and…

      After a little while, one of the members of the family stood up, reached for a book of some sort, and approached me with it. She knelt beside me and in a very calming voice, opened the book and pointed to a photo of her mother and said “This is mum when we had a day out in xxxx.” And then to another photo: “This is the whole family at So & So’s wedding…”And so on until we had looked at what felt like most of the blessed album.

      It dawned on me (eventually!) that this was their way of “calming” me down. I was considered a nut. I mean, even more of a nut than they’d previously considered me to be… That is the moment when I realised that Catholics who are aware that there is a crisis in the Church are in a minority and at that point I thought it was a minority of one. Thankfully, I soon discovered that is not the case!

      So, that clip reminded me of that occasion – big time 😀

        Editor,

        My stepfather was in the same role as you in our family, but at every family gathering, not just once. He had served in the military in Yugoslavia during WWII and had watched how Tito and the Communists took over after the war. He kept warning us that the same thing was going to happen in the USA – and whaddya know, he was a Protestant who had never heard of Fatima, and he was right!

        One important difference between the two of you, however: he was taller and louder than everyone else, so no one dared to treat him like he was a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic….

    This article is just BS. Your references to a ‘new world order’ and Tucker Carlson (who couldn’t tell the truth about anything even if you were threatening to throw him over the edge of a very high cliff) show you to be completely deluded. The fact that Zelenskyy is Jewish shows your racism. Doesn’t the church have some more little boys to molest????

      Kate,

      You concluding sentence is nasty and ignorant. I almost deleted it, since it offends against our House Rules, not to mention the majority of Catholics who are guilty of no such thing – more children are molested in State-run institutions such as orphanages and schools, than by any churchman, but why let the facts get in the way of a good little bigoted rant, eh? Thus, I decided to publish your nasty concluding sentence for the purpose of educating you a little – looking at the posts you have submitted here, you need help in the education department.

      As for your reference to Zelensky being Jewish and the very fact of mentioning this is “racist” – don’t be ridiculous. Zelensky’s Jewishness is mentioned on his Wikipedia page, where he is described as a “Jewish hero”: Zelenskyy has been called by the Times of Israel the “Jewish defender of Ukrainian democracy”.[23] Gal Beckerman of The Atlantic described Zelenskyy as having “[given] the world a Jewish Hero”.[182]

      So, unless you think the Times of Israel, and The Atlantic are racist publications with racist writers, gerragrip.

      With respect, you are woefully uninformed. You appear to know nothing about the plans of the world’s elite to establish a New World Order (with a hugely decreased population) despite this being openly discussed – visit the World Economic Forum and read all about their plans for you: “You’ll own nothing and be happy”…

      Finally, if you wish to blog here you will do so courteously and with respect for the Catholic religion – at least as much respect for our Faith as you appear to have for the Jewish religion.

      As for Zelensky himself – his corruption is well known, and even mentioned on his own Wikipedia page. So, gen up a little on the facts to inform yourself before commenting here – the bloggers here are very well informed, not to mention seasoned debaters. They know how to discuss without making personal remarks and being nasty.

      That’s my job…

    Former MP George Galloway has the most trenchant, indeed scorching commentary I’ve yet found against the corrupt Ukrainian govt and its Globohomo puppet-president, and also against mainstream media perfidy regarding their relentless propaganda. See his Youtube channel for his epic MOATS (Mother of All Talk Shows).

    Is anybody else sceptical about the Ukrainian claims to be routing the Russian army. In one report, they’re supposed to have killed 7 Russia Generals. Where is the video footage? Same with this report – I am struggling to believe any of it.

    I just stumbled on to your site today looking up info on Zelensky and I was happy I found you. In reading most of the comments I see that many have taken time to be informed. I am protestant but I have family and friends who are Catholic, and I prefer to focus on what we do agree on. Not sure if “Kate” is that uninformed or a professional troll and agitator. Either way, “she” sounds like a very unhappy person who just wants to sow seeds of discord. I have been dismayed how so many people just blindly jumped on the Zelensky is a brave hero band wagon without doing a little digging. He is a graduate of the Young Global Leaders program with the WEF and that tells us alot. Soros backed him as the leader of Ukraine, again that tells us alot. And what he’s doing now with his draconian measures tells us more. The Left cries racist and sexist etc when they have no real rebuttal to inconvenient facts.

      Welcome, and thank you for your thoughtful comment.

      I think many, if not most of us will be members of “mixed” Catholic/Protestant families, but although I understand the preference to stick to what we agree on, I would prefer to focus on that with which we disagree – as that’s the only way I can see to overcome disagreements. If we avoid the areas of disagreement, how are we to move closer together on any issue or dogma? Anyway, you are welcome here and I want you to feel free to enquire about anything “Catholic” which you don’t understand or with which you “disagree”.

      You may be right about Kate – certainly, she has not returned since my biting response to what I saw as her trolling; I’ve learned to jump on apparent trolling, which is different from a sincere enquirer or commentator who may – how can I put it – “disagree” with us here! The latter sparks informed debate where the troll disrupts, usually with (often nasty) personal remarks.

      Glad to note that YOU are informed about Zelensky, and as for your closing sentence – on the button,

    This is amazing. Zelensky says if we want the war to end, we should go green!

    “Zelensky turned on a dime, switching from claims of Russians raping women and children to suddenly calling for more green energy use by the European Union. You can’t make this stuff up.”
