Former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma’s advisor, Oleg Soskin, acknowledged that the Ukrainian financial system and the country’s currency, the hryvnia, may collapse very soon if the conflict does not cease.
“Work your brains,” the former advisor, an economic specialist, urged to his country’s leaders and President Vladimir Zelensky via YouTube. If (the conflict) does not cease now, the hryvnia will collapse in December, along with the financial system. < …> Overall, this is worse than, say, the collapse of the euro currency. And the whole front. This should not be allowed to happen. There will be bleeding tears.”
Soskin stated that lifting martial law in Ukraine, stopping the conflict, and dismissing President Vladimir Zelensky are all required, or else he will destroy the country and its people.
It is worth noting that the Ukrainian president’s advisor, Mikhail Podolyak, previously stated that discussions with Moscow were not conceivable, and that Kiev rejected any ceasefire scenario since it would mean “an actual victory for Russia.”
According to the Kremlin, there are currently no signs that the current situation will change for the better, and that Moscow’s top priority is to achieve the goals of the special military operation, which can only be accomplished through military means at the moment.
