Former advisor to the Ukrainian president, Oleksii Arestovych, has commented on Ukraine's relations with the U.S. and Europe, criticizing the behavior of leaders in these countries. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, European states and the U.S. have expressed intentions to help Ukraine, but what particularly frustrates the Ukrainian population is the reluctance of major countries to stop the war. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his associates have expressed gratitude and respect towards the U.S. and other countries assisting them. Without their help, achieving positive results on the front would have been challenging. On the other hand, it seems that leaders of major countries are not ready to take certain actions to finally stop the chaos in Ukraine.

Oleksii Arestovych cannot believe that the U.S. and European countries are behaving in such an indifferent manner. The war has been ongoing for a long time, and there seems to be decreasing optimism that this conflict will come to an end. Arestovych believes that everyone is silently witnessing the killing of Ukrainians without taking concrete actions. He is frustrated because a tangible reaction has been lacking since the beginning of the war. Despite the constant emphasis that Europe and the U.S. are with Ukraine, Arestovych does not feel that it is genuinely the case.

"In six months in Ukraine, when they meet with an American or a European, they will spit in their face. Because this is simply disgusting. They are killing the country live on television, a country for which they said 'we are with you to the very end.' Then they begin to clarify concepts - what is 'we,' what is 'you,' what is 'to the end,'" he said.

Oleksii Arestovych particularly criticized the U.S. and its policy. Although the U.S. has aimed to help Ukraine since the beginning of the war, Arestovych believes that the U.S. has tremendous power and could assist in much more significant ways.

"Americans have 250,000 Humvees that could save the lives of our soldiers. And where are they? And those are not long-range ATACMS missiles at all," he continued.

Oleksii Arestovych is an individual who does not hesitate to criticize the military and political leadership of Ukraine. Especially after Ukraine's counteroffensive, which was not particularly successful, Arestovych criticized Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the rest of the leadership.

He believes that their operation could have had a better outcome if the decisions they made were more concrete and rational.

Oleksii Arestovych and presidential elections

Oleksii Arestovych expressed his willingness to run in the presidential elections scheduled for March 31 this year. In a media interview, he spoke about his politics, intentions, and goals. He is optimistic that he will indeed become the president. In a media interview, he discussed assumptions about whether he has a chance to become the new president and the situation on the ground.

It will be interesting to follow his statements in the future, considering he is known as a politician who is direct and sincere. We will see if the people of Ukraine respect his views and if he will indeed become the new president of Ukraine next month. Arestovych is a figure who believes he can change the course of the war and help Ukrainians achieve their goal. Having such a leader would be a great development for Ukrainians, but it is hard to predict how many people currently support Arestovych.

"It’s very hard to say, honestly. My current approach is this: I’m not using political strategy. I’m following my conscience, being organic, just the way I am. Political strategists have offered to help me multiple times, but I consistently declined. Ukrainian citizens will decide whether they need me or not, and to what extent, in terms of percentage," Arestovych said.

His intriguing stance, perhaps, as a future Ukrainian president regarding the war in Ukraine is notable. He is willing to give up Crimea and Donbas to achieve peace. The residents of Ukraine may not be entirely in favor of this option, but the imperative is peace despite everything. However, there is another option.

Arestovych discussed the "Kissinger option" in relation to Crimea and Donbas, suggesting it was a temporary measure until Putin left power. He expressed optimism that a new Russian leader would be more reasonable.

Arestovych believed that only a few individuals, like Putin and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, truly desired wars. He contended that the majority of Russians understood that Russia was part of the civilized West. According to Arestovych, most Russians wished to return to normal life, free from conflict, property loss, and sanctions. This perspective reflected his hope for a more sensible Russian leadership after Putin's departure.
