Save Ukraine from the tyrant

The United States convinced Ukraine in 1991 to give up its nuclear weapons and send them to Russia. We then guaranteed Ukraine’s security, and now we are fulfilling those guarantees.

We have provided about $70 billion in aid and plan on giving another $50 billion in economic and military aid. This is well spent, because Ukraine is fighting to deter Russian expansionist goals in Eastern Europe. If Ukraine goes down, Eastern Europe could be next. This would require a response from NATO, including the U.S., which would precipitate World War 3.

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy and the far right Republicans in the House Freedom Caucus want to cut back our commitment to Ukraine. This short-sighted and naive position loses sight of the geopolitical situation. It would endanger Ukraine and Europe and encourage other bad actors like China, North Korea and Iran to commit aggression with impunity to further their expansionist objectives.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is committed to defending his country. Congress and the American people should realize the strategic importance of saving Ukraine from the clutches of a Russian tyrant.

– Donald Moskowitz, Londonderry, N.H.
