Fmr. U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine: Biden Admin Needs To Be Clearer That Putin’s War in Ukraine Is a Challenge to Our Core Interests

‘We should be doing everything possible to make sure that the Ukrainians win’

EXCERPT:

HERBST: “Oh, you hear, you get parts of this at times, but not a clear direct statement of the problem. And I think that’s related to the overall caution of the administration. If they’re laid out that clearly, then they’re afraid they’ll take the blame, quote, unquote, if Putin wins in Ukraine. We should be doing everything possible to make sure that the Ukrainians win. And they will win if we provide all support Ukraine needs. And we should not be apologetic about this. We should be clear. These are defensive measures designed to protect American security. I would love to hear this coming from the President’s mouth.”
