President Biden needs to visit Ukraine, says Indiana Republican Congresswoman Victoria Spartz.

On CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, Spartz, a native of Ukraine, said it is a good thing that both Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Ukraine. On Sunday, they both met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for three hours. They confirmed that diplomats will begin returning this week in a city near the border with Poland. But they say it could take weeks before the embassy reopens in the capital.

“I hope President Biden will someday make his way here to meet with Zelenskyy. It would send a greater message of solidarity,” said Spartz.

She says the U.S. needs to reopen its diplomatic facilities in Ukraine as soon as possible.

“Part of your job is to do your service. If you’re not on the ground, it is very difficult to do your job,” said Spartz.

The Biden administration will provide more than $300 million in military financing and has approved a $165 million ammunition sale.

Biden recently said that he cannot go to Ukraine because “they” won’t let him. Who is they? He’s the Commander in Chief (allegedly) and runs the military and civilian security divisions. Who is “they”?

It is rumored that “they” are the Ukrainians themselves, who have an arrest warrant out for Sleazy Joe over his role in the ongoing corruption in that country, such as the part where he refused to release aid to Ukraine until they fired the prosecutor looking into Hunter’s business dealings there. This happened when Joe was VP.
