The investigative journalist cites information reported in secret by members of the US intelligence community.
Pulitzer Prize-winning US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh revealed on Wednesday that Eastern European allies, spearheaded by Poland, are secretly urging Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to end the Ukraine conflict, even by resigning himself, which the Ukrainian leader is refusing to do.
“This group is led by Poland, whose leadership no longer fears the Russian army because its performance in Ukraine has left the glow of its success at Stalingrad during the Second World War in tatters. It has been quietly urging Zelensky to find a way to end the war — even by resigning himself, if necessary — and to allow the process of rebuilding his nation to get under way,” Hersh wrote on his Substack page.
The investigative journalist cited information reported in secret by members of the US intelligence community, with Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia listed among other members of the group.
“Zelensky is not budging, according to intercepts and other data known inside the Central Intelligence Agency, but he is beginning to lose the private support of his neighbors,” Hersh pointed out.
It is noteworthy that Hersh has previously published information on the suspected involvement of the United States in the attack on the Nordstream pipelines.
In early February, he said US Navy divers planted explosives to destroy the Nord Stream pipelines last year.
This led Facebook to deliberately decide to prevent people from sharing Hersh’s report on the suspected US involvement, according to a report by Responsible Statecraft.
