Time magazine is telling us Ukraine has lost?

Time Magazine reports that a top Ukrainian presidential advisor warns that "people are stealing like there's no tomorrow".

People who live in Eastern Europe take that for granted but in my experience (in real life) American Democrats get angry if Ukrainian misuse of US funds is suggested.

Corruption remains widespread in Ukraine despite Zelensky firing numerous people including the Defence Minister.

Zelensky's close advisor warns that “He deludes himself. We’re out of options. We’re not winning. But try telling him that.” His attitude is heroic, necessary for a war leader, but what will be the result?

'In some branches of the military, the shortage of personnel has become even more dire than the deficit in arms and ammunition. One of Zelensky’s close aides tells me that even if the U.S. and its allies come through with all the weapons they have pledged, “we don’t have the men to use them.”'

Men are dragged off trains and buses and sent to the front. The average age of a Ukrainian soldier has risen to around 43.

Why are Time Magazine and mainstream US media starting to throw Ukraine and Zelensky under the bus?

A pro-Russian journalist whom I know says 'More than anything else this was MI6's war' and is angry that UK sent HMS Defender to the coast of Crimea to scupper, as he thinks, talks in Geneva in 2021 between Biden and Putin. 

I have no idea about whether this was what happened but the Anglo-Americans pursued entirely the wrong strategy for years, after Obama left office and Trump (to prove he was not being blackmailed by the Kremlin?) started to arm Ukraine with lethal weapons. 

The Russiagate hoax and the law of unintended consequences.. though Boris Johnson's admiration for Churchill is also to blame
