House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stunned the nation by going on a secret mission to Kyiv on Saturday to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Pelosi’s visit to Ukraine appears to be the Biden administration’s answer to Zelensky’s requests for President Biden to visit the nation as it fights off the Russian invasion that began in late Febuary.
Pelosi issued a statement following her visit saying, “Our delegation traveled to Kyiv to send an unmistakable and resounding message to the entire world: America stands firmly with Ukraine.”
Pelosi’s visit comes as President Biden is working to secure a shocking $33 billion dollars in foreign aid for Ukraine. The proposal by the Biden administration has ignited outrage as the nation is already suffering from massive inflation, and many believe we no longer can afford to send such massive funds abroad.
Either way, Pelosi’s visit to Ukraine further reinforces that the United States will stand beside Ukraine.
Of course, it’s worth wondering how deep that commitment really goes. The last thing the nation needs is to get into a war with a nuclear power over a country that is thousands of miles away.
