Zelenskyy’s Top Aide Criticizes West For ‘War Fatigue’ Amid Ongoing Conflict With Russia: ‘Don’t Want To Wake Up In A World…Where There Will Be Less Freedom’


Andrii Yermak, the top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, called out the West for showing signs of “war fatigue” amidst the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

What Happened: Yermak, in an interview with Politico, highlighted that those growing weary of the war certainly “don’t want to wake up in a world tomorrow where there will be less freedom.”

Yermak’s comments come in response to Italy’s Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni‘s recent remarks to Russian pranksters that many are growing tired of the war in Ukraine.

In the prank call, Meloni expressed to the person she thought was the president of the African Union that there was a significant “fatigue … from all sides.” She also conveyed the notion that “everyone understands that we need a way out.”

Yermak countered, stating that the world could not afford fatigue either then or now. He argued that the narrative of “war fatigue” was a Russian propaganda ploy to weaken the resolve of Western allies.

“Even if there are people who feel this fatigue, I’m sure they don’t want to wake up in a world tomorrow where there will be less freedom and less security, and the consequences of this last for decades,” he said.

He also confirmed that the majority of drones used in attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure were supplied by Iran. Yermak emphasized the need to continually strengthen Ukraine’s air defenses to keep pace with the increasing volume of airborne and drone attacks from Russia.

Yermak remains hopeful for Ukraine’s bid for full EU membership, indicating that a recent visit by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen bodes well for his country’s EU ambitions.

Meanwhile, Volodymyr Zelenskyy rejected a statement from the Ukrainian military’s commander-in-chief that the conflict with Russia had reached a standstill. A senior spokesperson from Zelenskyy’s administration criticized the general in question and alleged that his remarks were making “the aggressor’s job easier.”
