Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I surmise, imperial powers are theoretical in your experience despite practice to the contrary.

But every head of state has been a "servant" of the president of the USA since christ Roosevelt joined WWII and his Allies instituted the IMF. Zelenskiy merely drew the shortest straw of the lot.

I've been politically conscious since the Vietnam war, but I've been gradually learning nuance since about the 1980s.

I would imagine (I haven't researched the matter) that Zelenskiy is learning to tread a fine line between appeasing Trump and Putin. He seems to be making some progress with the latter.

Most world leaders will have given up trying to appease Trump, because of his attention span problems.
