The first sentence I can actually agree with; I thought Ukraine would barely last a week, and so far, they are doing a fuck load better than that. And I've said before, I have no problem selling Kiev weapons.
However, I cannot agree with the second sentence, because that sort of attitude is part of why shit kept escalating over their. Zelenski now seems to be willing to publicly say what most understood already; Ukraine will not being joining NATO in the future. Not 'we won't join till after the current conflict is over', not 'we will join when our nation has finished rebuilding', not 'we will join after making some concessions to Russia'; it was 'will not join NATO' without any qualifiers.
