Hersh: Majority of the world supports Russia in war in Ukraine
US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh explains that the US is losing credibility as Russia is gaining global support with that the majority of the world's population stands with Russia in the war.
US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh underscored, on Sunday, that the majority of the world's population supported Russia in the war in Ukraine while the credibility of the US is being put into question.
In an interview with George Galloway on Mother of All Talk Shows (MOATS), Hersh stated that "the percentage of the [countries], particularly of the African and Central Asian and South Asian countries, that have changed from being pro-America to being pro-Russia is really quite dramatic. Much more than half of the world's population supports Russia in the war and not the United States. This was never the way it was."
Significantly, Hersh further explained that while sanctions have taken their toll on Russia, and "things are not as good as they used to be" in Moscow, it remained that "the idea that they are desperate is just wrong."
Emphasizing the US setbacks, Hersh referenced the Saudi Arabia-Iran rapprochement through Chinese mediation, which showed that Washington "lost so much credibility around the world."
Hersh linked the rapprochement through China to the war in Ukraine, explaining that "It's happened because, I think, because of Ukraine and dislike of the war."
Moreover, he pointed out that "Saudi Arabia, by the way, they're selling 25% of [their] oil to China, as I have mentioned, but the Saudis immediately cut a deal," further linking this to the pressure exerted by the Ansar Allah in Yemen, and hopes that Iran may hold influence over them.
Ukraine counteroffensive will bring no good to Kiev, US or NATO
According to the Pulitzer Prize-winning US investigative journalist, Ukraine's counteroffensive will not bring any good to Kiev, the United States, or NATO.
Hersh explained how "this [counteroffensive] isn't going to be good for Ukraine, it's not going to be good for NATO, it's certainly not going to be good for the Biden administration."
When asked about the possibility of NATO joining the war, Hersh stated that they were "probably already in it."
The journalist further explained that the Ukrainian army is comprised of "so many disparate groups," comparable to 15 different dance teams that suddenly are forced to organize a routine together after practicing alone for a very long.
Despite the ongoing efforts to attempt to organize, Hersh said it is "impossible" for them to be able to successfully do so.
Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters on Friday that the Ukrainian "counteroffensive" in the special military operation zone has begun and that Kiev is now down to using its strategic reserves.
"Firstly, it can be stated with absolute certainty that the counteroffensive has begun and this is proved by the use of strategic reserves," Putin said.
