(MENAFN) In a scathing critique, exiled Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Medvedchuk has outlined what he considers three “fatal” mistakes made by President Vladimir Zelensky, predicting that these missteps will lead to his political downfall. Medvedchuk, the former leader of the banned Opposition Platform – For Life party, accused Zelensky of compromising the government by appointing non-professionals, misjudging available resources, and utilizing Nazi ideology to deflect attention from his administration’s failures.

In an opinion piece published on the Drugaya Ukraina (The Other Ukraine) movement’s website, Medvedchuk asserted that Zelensky’s days as a politician are numbered, emphasizing the gravity of the identified mistakes. According to the exiled opposition leader, Zelensky’s transition from a professional entertainer and comedian to the president of Ukraine has been marred by a fundamental misunderstanding of the distinctions between politics and show business.
