    If that’s true, Ukraine does not have so much to worry about. But is it? The mood music suggests not.

    • Was support for Ukraine “unwavering” when Bidenov green-lighted Nord Stream 2 after everyone in DC was against it? If you mean it Mr. Secretary send some SAMS.and give us air support until we can achieve it ourselves.

      Talk is cheap especially for Biden and his goons.
      Remember, this is the same administration that has lied to the American people at every opportunity about Afghanistan. It’s causing the US a lot of trouble with its open-border policy. It threw Ukraine under the bus once before. It has provided the Taliban with BILLIONS worth of our arms and equipment without batting an eyelid. It even abandoned who-knows-how-many US citizens in Afghanistan after vowing to get each one out.
      So, no, it’s not true.
