Ukrainian Disinformation

“Kentucky’s Sen. Mitch McConnell, a Republican who nominally represents an American state and serves the American people, recently said that Ukraine was Washington’s top priority. He evidently is confused about where his loyalties should lie and should consider running for election in Ukraine, perhaps in the oblast surrounding the capital of Kiev. Ukrainian officials have no such doubts. They serve Ukraine and are quite prepared to trash Americans and even drag the U.S. into war if doing so serves Kiev’s interests. Why? Because, in contrast to McConnell, the Ukrainian leadership prioritizes its nation’s interest. Given Kiev’s belief in Ukraine Uber Alles, Ukrainian officials are very unhappy with Americans who have the temerity to argue that Washington’s policy should reflect American interests first.” (01/12/23)
