Ukrainian President Zelensky has canceled the upcoming Presidential elections and may not allow them next year either.
Recall that the U.S. has said that it is defending Ukraine because it is a democracy. Remind me, what do you call a ruler who cancels the democratic process and keeps hold of power again? It’s not a democracy.
Zelensky said this about the elections: “We must decide that now is the time of defense, the time of battle, on which the fate of the state and people depends,” Zelensky said. “I believe that now is not the time for elections.”
But what if the people of Ukraine want a different leader who would lead them to peace? They won’t have that option.
And what if Ukrainian people want to challenge Zelensky? Many parties have been shut down because the government has labeled them “pro-Russian.”
This is the democracy the West is so ardently defending?
