An official with the Ukrainian government blasted Joe Biden and Democrats saying, “If Democrats weren’t such p***ies in foreign policy, this might not have happened.”
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official told The Daily Wire that “the Obama-Biden administration has refused lethal aid to Ukraine for a long time.”
“It was Trump who was the first to provide some Javelins to Ukraine, then Biden started sending Javelins in mass just before invasion. But too little, too late,” the official said.
“Biden’s first step in office was to lift sanctions on Nord Stream 2. Now he applies them heavily. Now it’s too late,” he continued.
“If Democrats did not play into the weak policy of not sending weapons to Ukraine and lifting sanctions on Nord Stream 2, Putin would probably think twice or three times.”
“Also, we never understood why would Biden say that no U.S. troops would be involved,” he added. “Even if he did not intend to, why say it when no one asked? At least [he] could have speculated on the possibility to deter an attack.”
Beginning with former President Bill Clinton, Democrats made a disastrous decision to support the nuclear disarmament of Ukraine. Numerous congressional Democrats have supported this move.
Ukraine controlled some 5,000 nuclear weapons at the time of the fall of the Soviet Union. This included “long-range missiles that carried up to 10 thermonuclear warheads, each far stronger than the bomb that leveled Hiroshima.”
In 1992, Russia and the Clinton White House worked to convince Ukraine to give up all of its nuclear weapons. Ukraine returned the nuclear weapons it had inherited from the Soviet government back to Russia in 1992.
As part of Ukraine’s agreement to disarm itself of nuclear weapons, a pledge was made by the United States, Russia, and United Kingdom to protect Ukraine against unwarranted aggression.
The initial agreement was called Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances and later reaffirmed in 2009 by President Barack Obama.
In 2014, Obama sat back as Russian-rebels, with support from Russian troops, seized control of Crimea, a region belonging to Ukraine. Obama notoriously mocked Mitt Romney for expressing concerns that Russia poses a serious threat to the U.S.
President Donald Trump took matters into his own hands against Russia. Trump signed legislation into law following a bipartisan effort of the House Armed Services Committee to recommend imposing sanctions on Russia.
In 2019, Congress passed a measure to impose sanctions on a Russian company that is building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to deliver natural gas from Russia to Germany.
Trump signed the sanctions into law because the pipeline “really makes Germany a hostage of Russia if things ever happened that were bad.” Trump wanted to contain the Russians. The pipeline was widely viewed as a way to empower Russia to overrun Europe. Polish President Andrzej Duda told Trump that he fiercely opposed Nord Stream 2.
The head of Naftogaz, a Ukrainian energy company, called the pipeline Russia’s most “dangerous geopolitical project.”
“Maintaining Trump’s sanctions should have been an easy call for President Biden,” Governor Kristi Noem said.
But what did Biden do? The Biden administration waived those bipartisan sanctions and allowed Nord Stream to move forward. Some people believe that Joe Biden simply reversed an important accomplishment of the Trump administration for spite.
“A more sinister theory suggests that because his son, Hunter Biden, served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, President Biden had, at a minimum, the appearance of a conflict of interest,” Governor Noem wrote in an opinion piece on Fox News.
“To make matters worse, Hunter ‘received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow,’ according to a Congressional report,” she concluded.
