Republicans steer Joseph Biden into territory he initially avoided – diplomat Chaly

Valeriy Chaly, Ukrainian diplomat, former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States, in an interview with Anton Borkovskyi, host of the Studio West program, noted that Republicans are pushing Joseph Biden to make the issue of Ukraine or countering Russia part of his election campaign.

This insight was shared during a conversation on Espreso.

"The Republicans are pushing the White House and Joseph Biden into a direction he initially avoided – making the issue of Ukraine and countering Russia a part of their election campaign. They had options; they could have criticized Democrats and Biden for not providing enough aid to Ukraine, but they chose a different path," remarked the diplomat.

According to him, Michael Johnson, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, is steering away from supporting Ukraine. The sudden Republican focus on migration policy in connection with aid to Ukraine is seen as a troubling sign. Despite explanations that this is a common practice in American politics, with Congress trading issues, the diplomat views it negatively.

"It appears that not everything is settled. If Joseph Biden takes up this challenge and incorporates Ukrainian success into his election campaign, which primarily revolves around domestic matters, it would be a positive sign for us," emphasized Valery Chaly.

  • It's worth noting that in May, Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene announced her intention to introduce a bill in Congress for the impeachment of US President Joe Biden, citing concerns about his migration policy. 
  • In mid-September, the US House of Representatives officially initiated an investigation into the potential impeachment of President Biden. 
  • On December 12, Reuters reported the possibility of a vote on the impeachment procedure against Biden on December 14. 
  • Subsequently, on December 14, the Republican majority in the US House of Representatives voted to formalize the ongoing impeachment investigation against Democratic President Joe Biden.
