A fresh voice is emerging at a crucial time for President Joe Biden as he attempts to lead the American response to a fight that has lasted almost 100 days and been both grueling and sad.
Olena Zelenska, the first lady of Ukraine, is speaking out about the expenses incurred by her country and all other nations if they cave in to Russian demands, including the responsibilities placed on children and families.
“You just cannot give up some of your area. It’s like giving up a freedom, “Robin Roberts said in an interview that will appear on Thursday on “Good Morning America,” according to Newsspill.”
Asked about the importance of assistance from other nations, Zelenska replied: “It’s really important because you feel you’re not alone.”
Her voice does not have the same impact as her husband’s, who has repeatedly listed Ukraine’s requests over the last few months. As the president continues to set expectations and constraints, the Biden White House is obviously aware of these demands and others.
In a New York Times op-ed, Biden made it clear that the most recent military assistance he is giving Ukraine will only be used “on the battlefield in Ukraine” and not in Russia. Additionally, he said that despite his claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot survive in power,” he would not “want a conflict between NATO and Russia” and that the United States would not attempt to overthrow him in Moscow.
Biden added, “We do not want to extend the conflict only to punish Russia.
On that matter, Biden has been up front and center. However, at a time when the president’s reputation is being put to the test at home with inflation, infant formula, and so many other issues, the suffering in Ukraine might still manifest itself in ways that are unpredictable.
As U.S. Vice President Joe Biden warned that Russia could invade Ukraine within days and as violence increased in a protracted standoff in eastern Ukraine, fears of a new war in Europe resurfaced on Thursday.
While leaders from across the world scrambled to find answers, mistrust between the East and West only seemed to deepen as NATO partners disregarded Russian claims that it was withdrawing troops from training exercises that had stoked attack concerns. Around the borders of Ukraine, Russia is thought to have amassed a military force of about 150,000.
With those soldiers, which accounted for an estimated 60% of Russia’s total land forces, Western worries about what Russia is doing with them have grown. Despite its insistence that it has no ambitions to invade, the Kremlin has always viewed Ukraine as being within its area of influence and the eastward expansion of NATO as an existential danger.
The American administration delivered some of its clearest and most thorough warnings ever over what may come next.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken presented certain intelligence findings during his address to the U.N. Security Council in an effort to expose and thwart any invasion preparations. A significant portion of the evidence supporting the U.S.’s accusations has been withheld.
