Bisnis.comJAKARTA – Entering two weeks of invasion Russia to Ukraine, support from leading Western politicians began to shift to President Vladimir Putin including from Canada and United States of America (AS).
Canadian Green Party leader Alex Tyrrell posted a series of controversial messages calling on Western countries and the Ukrainian government to accept Russia’s demands regarding the ongoing conflict with Ukraine.
Tyrrell said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s demands for the denuclearization, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine were reasonable.
Therefore, he asked Western governments to stop sending weapons to the country and choose to negotiate.
“I call on the Governments of Canada, the United States and NATO to stop sending weapons to Ukraine and support serious negotiations with Russia now to allow for an immediate de-escalation and to save lives,” he wrote on Twitter as quoted by the Montreal.CTVNews.ca website, Friday (11/11). /3/2022).
Meanwhile, while the crisis in Ukraine continues in which most elected officials in the United States express support for their allies in Kyiv, there are some exceptions for key officials.
Leading Republican politician from the US North Carolina constituency, Madison Cawthorn told a group of supporters that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was a “thug” leading an “evil” government.
“Remember that Zelensky is a thug,” Cawthorn said in a video clip as quoted by MSNBC.com.
He reminded that the Ukrainian government is very corrupt and very evil and has encouraged the rise of old ideologies.
In recent years there have been many instances when Republicans have supported anti-Ukrainian talks, regardless of their accuracy. Most of them also restricted talks after the Russian invasion.
Former President Donald Trump hailed Putin’s efforts in Ukraine as “genius” and “very intelligent”.
Soon after, retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, a Pentagon official in the Trump administration, argued that the United States should “absolutely” let Vladimir Putin take what he wanted in Ukraine.
This week, Republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky, after voting against a symbolic resolution in support of Ukraine, strengthened Russia’s claims about Ukrainian biological laboratories.
