Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin's spokesperson, has declared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's fate "sealed." Amidst this tension, Kyiv is holding out for American support and facing Russian pressures.

Note: Many statements from Russian media or officials may contain propaganda, serving as components of the information warfare led by the Russian Federation.

"Zelensky's fate is definitely sealed," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a preview of an interview conducted by journalist Pavel Zarubin for the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin."

Peskov targets Zelensky once more

Peskov has previously commented on Zelensky's challenging situation. In October 2023, he mentioned that the Ukrainian president was starting to annoy everyone in America and Europe, with growing skepticism about sending funds to Kyiv.

In January 2024, Peskov pointed out that Zelensky was in a very difficult position, highlighting the absence of missile support from abroad and domestic unrest due to widespread dissatisfaction within Ukraine.

While Russian criticism of Kyiv's refusal to engage in discussions persists, Zelensky has offered a peace plan. However, Putin dismissed the peace requirements, which included restoring the 1991 borders and providing security guarantees, as excessive.

Ukraine anticipates support

The Institute for the Study of War has predicted that Russian forces might soon secure a significant tactical advantage due to their numerical superiority in personnel and equipment, facilitating intensified pressure on Ukraine.

Ukraine is currently awaiting American assistance, already approved from across the Atlantic. This support addresses the Ukrainian forces' logistical challenges and stem the Russian advance.
