Sen. Rand Paul Slammed For Repeating Russian Talking Points On Ukraine Invasion

On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) argued with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken over the potential effects of expanding the NATO military alliance.

“One country can’t dictate to another the choices it makes about with whom it allies,” Bliken responded questioned by Paul. Ukraine has been denied admission to NATO for 14 years.

Paul argued that Ukraine not being in NATO is a “good thing” because “we have not had advocacy for U.S. troops.” Paul also added that Georiga and Ukraine were attacked because they were once part of the old Soviet Union.

“We are not going to be more Ukrainian than the Ukrainians,” Bliken said. The U.S. goal in Ukraine is to ensure “the ability to repel the Russian aggression and strengthen their hand at the eventual negotiating table.”

Critics online slammed Paul for parroting Kremlin talking points with his arguments.
