(USNewsMag.com) – Michigan’s Democrat Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, said that Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was parroting Russian propaganda lines when he downplayed Russia’s unlawful Ukrainian invasion.
On March 17, Whitmer remarked that, despite her lack of geopolitical expertise, she finds it quite concerning when politicians adopt the rhetoric of the Kremlin. It’s clear that referring to the situation as a “territorial dispute” is an attempt to minimize Russia’s unlawful Ukrainian invasion. It’s disrespectful, frustrating, and, in her opinion, seriously endangers national security, especially coming from a state with such a large Ukrainian population.
Her remarks were in response to DeSantis’s answer to Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson’s question regarding his position on the conflict in Ukraine. Others who have answered Carlson’s questions include Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott, former President Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, a businessman, former VP Mike Pence, Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and former United States Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.
DeSantis argued that further entanglement in the territorial conflict between Russia and Ukraine was not a vital interest for the United States. Issues that are of supreme concern to our nation include attaining energy independence, stopping the financial, military, and social power exhibited by the CCP, tackling the dilemma of preparedness in the US military, and protecting our borders. Without clear goals or transparency, Biden’s administration is supporting this battle indefinitely at taxpayer expense, diverting attention away from more critical issues.
Russia has invaded Ukraine and begun a widespread military offensive throughout the nation. After announcing in December that a group of MIM-104 weapons would be delivered to that nation, the United States increased its assistance to Ukraine to nearly $100 billion. Then, in January, another announcement was made that the US would deploy thirty-one M1 Abrams combat tanks to Ukraine.
War crimes accusations related to the suspected trafficking of minors from Ukraine prompted the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest order for President Putin of Russia on March 17.
