    He pushed the whole European integration, fuck you Russia thing way too hard. Don't know why he believed a word we said. When you live next to a bear, you better learn how to live with it

    Was he not an actor, or a comedian or something like that before office? Is so it might explain why he believed that the West has won...

    He didn't believe that "the West has won". But he did believe that, like in the Baltic states, Poland and Romania, the people of Ukraine have a right to choose the way they want to live.

    92% of the people voted for independence from Russa back in 1991. And more than 70% voted for association with the EU. If anything, Zelenskyj may have taken democracy too seriously.

    So basically your saying he thought the west had won - that it's "values" were inevitable, that "rights" and other idealisms trump everything else. When you live next to a bear, living/acting like the lion has already laid down with the lamb is, well its not reality....excuse me as I mix metaphors ;)

    Well, it's turning out that the Ukrainians are not so quite like the lamb Putin thought they were!
