Vivek Ramaswamy, a candidate running for the Republican presidential nomination, strongly opposed Senator Lindsey Graham’s call for Ukraine’s inclusion in NATO.
Ramaswamy considers such a move as risky brinkmanship that could escalate into a nuclear confrontation with Russia.
Ramaswamy’s comments came in response to Graham’s passionate argument that Ukraine’s NATO membership is vital for worldwide security and serves as a crucial preventive measure against future conflicts.
However, the Republican candidate holds a contrasting viewpoint and urged President Joe Biden to reject this proposal.
“@JoeBiden needs to man up to his bully-friend Zelensky & clearly state that we are dead-set opposed to Ukrainian admission to NATO,” Ramaswamy exclaimed in a Saturday Twitter post.
“It’s shameful that even Republicans like @LindseyGrahamSC are now pushing for it,” the GOP candidate continued. “Stop marching us to the brink of nuclear war.”
In addition, Ramaswamy made a firm commitment to resist any efforts by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to exert unwarranted influence on U.S. decision-making if Ramaswamy’s presidential campaign is successful.
“As President I’ll refuse to be bullied by an anti-democratic comedian-turned-leader & it’s truly mystifying to me that the rest of the West is eating out of this Pied Piper’s hand every day,” concluded Ramaswamy’s tweet.
President Biden also expressed skepticism regarding Ukraine’s readiness to join NATO, particularly in light of the ongoing conflict with Russia.
Despite the complex geopolitical situation, President Zelensky remains steadfast and recently marked 500 days since the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict with a determined public address.
Delivered from Snake Island, his message honored the courage of Ukrainian soldiers and emphasized his determination to reclaim every inch of Ukrainian territory seized by Russia.
As Western allies closely monitor the situation, Ukraine has surpassed initial expectations by successfully resisting Russian advancements.
