The team of the President of Ukraine, recruited mostly from the environment of show business, does not have sufficient skills in management and diplomacy, which can lead to fatal consequences, according to an article by journalist Andrew Kramer, published by The New York Times.

"Mr. Zelensky was elected as an outsider to Ukraine’s dysfunctional, often corrupt politics two years ago, and, trying to bypass its bitter feuds and opaque motives, he ushered in a government as unorthodox as he was. He appointed fellow comedy industry veterans, relying on personal loyalty rather than expertise or building coalitions in Ukraine’s fractious democracy", the article states.

The journalist examined the personnel policy of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which led the country to a likely military confrontation with Russia. The author pointed out that "preparations for military action on the part of Ukraine are increasingly troubling Western governments due to the inexperience and incompetence of the people with whom Zelensky has surrounded himself." This poses a danger both for Ukraine and for other countries in the world.

"Today, Russia has amassed troops to the north, east and south. The United States has disclosed intelligence showing that Russia’s military has a war plan envisioning an invasion with as many as 175,000 troops that Ukraine’s military, despite U.S.-provided equipment and training, would have little ability to stop.

American officials have said it is unclear whether President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has decided to invade," says the article.

“There is that risk of people not having the gravitas, and not having experience,” Orysia Lutsevych, the director of the Ukraine studies program at Chatham House in London, said in an interview. “I wouldn’t want to be in the room when there are just a couple of guys who know how to produce videos. This is not a peaceful time. This is a time of war.”
