UKRAINE SUBTLY DISSOCIATING FROM TRUMP
Six days ago, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, began the probe of two high profile U.S cases. One involving the former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch whom Democrats believe was being monitored while in Ukraine, on the orders of U.S President Donald J. Trump; and the other which seeks to investigate if Trump involved Russian hackers to find out about the alleged corruption in Ukrainian company, Burrisma Oil and Gas Ltd., where Hunter Biden, the son of former US Vice-president and Democrats Presidential candidate, Joe Biden works.
Zelensky, who before now, opted to play the "I-don't-want-to-meddle" card with the US and its political matters in 2019, when Trump pointed Ukraine to a high profile corruption case against Hunter Biden and Burrisma has now turned round to speedily throw his weight behind these two fresh cases which unsurprisingly, is strongly pioneered by the Democrats and aimed at further tarnishing the image of Donald Trump in the build up to 2020 elections. Zelensky refused to probe the allegation of corruption itself but has agreed to probe into how Trump must have gotten information about the corruption in Burrisma. A classic case of choosing shadow over substance or better still a subtle affirmation of Zelensky's dislike for Trump.
As it appears Ukraine, a struggling economy, which was a hapless, hopeless whimpering mice in 2018 when Russia bullied her way to annexing the oil rich region of Crimea right under its nose have chosen by its actions to align with the party of detractors vehemently fighting to oust the one man who stood veciferously in Ukraine's defense to wade off the bullies from St. Petersburg.
It is 2020 and the world is watching to see to the end to this silly and ungrateful move from a treacherous ally.
