A Ukrainian woman shocked French TV pundits when she reported what’s really happening inside her country.
Victoria, who was born in Ukraine but has been living in France for 25 years, elaborated during an interview on French TV show Brunet & Cie.
She explained how Ukrainians have been living under putrid conditions under the Zelensky puppet government due to his corruption.
Interviewer: Are you saying Zelensky is a puppet?
Ukrainian woman: "Yes. And he is by no means a democratic leader. He's banned 4 opposition TV channels, there were also journalists who disappeared"
"The economy is tanking, corruption is everywhere" https://t.co/wGUjGFOsP1

So anyone with a broad enough mind who genuinely cares about the truth vis a vis the true situation in Ukraine really needs to watch this interview on French TV. Do NOT believe the BBC or UK Gov on Ukraine.
Zelensky is far from a hero. Don't believe the hype, educate yourselves! https://t.co/cV4f3fdZI9

Victoria was asked by one of the hosts:
“Victoria, you are Ukrainian, but you have been living here [in France] for 25 years. As we know, you keep in touch with your relatives in Kiev. Did they manage to escape?”
She firmly answered:
“No, of course not – they didn’t even think about running away.
I returned to France four days ago. Nobody believed that there would be a war. But there were rumors and people started to run. However, the root of all troubles must be sought in 2014. Nearly two million Ukrainians live in appalling conditions. Heating bills are getting more expensive than ever, and wages are miserable… So, people spend half their salary on utility bills. In general, life is hard. So I think: why should we support this puppet president and his government?
I’m talking about the current president, and not the one that Putin will seat if he wants to. They write on the Internet that it is hard for Ukrainians now, and this is true. The authorities are constantly changing, the economy is in a tailspin, corruption is everywhere.”
Confused by Victoria’s remarks, the French hosts asked if she was talking about Putin or Zelensky. However, she confirmed she was speaking about the current Ukrainian president.
“Are you talking about Zelensky?”
“Yes, yes, about whom else.”
“So the democratically elected President Zelensky is really a puppet?”
“Yes, and it’s not democratic at all. He took and banned four opposition channels. Journalists disappear all the time. They say that Russian journalists are generally killed, but Ukrainian ones too. There have been many such cases in recent years. In general, everything is complicated, but they don’t talk about it – to no avail.”
“Wait, let me finish. Here you are Ukrainian and have lived in both countries, in Ukraine and in France. That is, it seems to you that the West idealizes Ukraine? Are you saying that the situation is not as simple as they say in the West: a ferocious Russian bear against a full-fledged Ukrainian democracy?”
“Yes, everything is much more complicated. The situation is far from black and white.”
French TV pundits were left stunned that Victoria’s remarks are far from the western media’s portrayal of the Ukrainian president.
