Is Ukraine Souring On President Volodymyr Zelenskiy?

“They feel his lack of experience and use it against him,” Oleksandr Danylyuk, Ukraine’s former national security chief, said. “I want Ukraine to be independent,” Mykola Mykytenko wrote on Instagram, hours before he set himself on fire in Kyiv’s central Maidan Square. 

The 49-year-old died Oct. 14, three days after his extreme protest in the heart of the country’s capital, where months of massive anti-government demonstrations took place at the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014. His daughter Yulia told reporters at a memorial event shortly after his death that he was protesting against Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. 

WNU Editor: Ukrainians are not tired of President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. They are worried about their future, the economy, the pandemic, and the war in the east, and wished that all of this was over. Ukraine President Zelenskiy also has the advantage that his opponents are the same old crowd that everyone hates.

Sorry someone who set themselves on fire is mentally ill, and someone else saying they are killing themselves to make a political statement is simply wrong.
It's really not worth examining their motives in killing themselves, beyond gaining an understanding of the fucked-up human condition.
