French, German, and Italian Heads of State All Endorse Negotiated End to War in Ukraine

French, German, and Italian Heads of State All Endorse Negotiated End to War in Ukraine

In recent weeks, the leaders of the three largest EU countries by population—France, Germany, and Italy—have all come out in favor of negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow as a way to end the fighting in Ukraine. Unlike President Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi have all spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. The three European leaders have all signed off on sending weapons to the Ukrainians but have also been calling for a ceasefire. After speaking with Putin by...

As Military Aid and Intel Sharing Increases, the U.S. Sleepwalks into the Russia-Ukraine War

As Military Aid and Intel Sharing Increases, the U.S. Sleepwalks into the Russia-Ukraine War

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, the U.S. has significantly escalated its support for Kyiv, both militarily and rhetorically, reflecting a growing mission creep that comes with the risk of provoking Moscow. Early on in the invasion, the U.S. was wary of confirming details of military aid, intelligence sharing, and training of Ukrainian forces. But now, U.S. officials are speaking openly about how Washington is helping Ukraine in its fight against Russia. Last week, anonymous U.S. officials speaking to the media claimed U.S. intelligence had helped Ukrainian forces kill Russian...

NYT Claims U.S. Intelligence Has Helped Assassinate Russian Generals

NYT Claims U.S. Intelligence Has Helped Assassinate Russian Generals

According to a report from The New York Times citing unnamed senior U.S. officials, intelligence provided by the U.S. on Russian military units has helped Ukraine target and kill Russian generals. Ukraine has claimed to have killed 12 Russian generals, but the number is not confirmed, and Kyiv has an interest in exaggerating its success on the battlefield, and the officials wouldn’t specify how many Russian officers were killed as a result of the assistance. But either way, the claim by U.S. officials that they are helping kill Russian generals is a major provocation toward Moscow. Like...

Smear Bund Labels House GOP Dissenters ‘Pro-Putin’

While legislation aimed at Russia has been overwhelmingly passing through Congress, each bill has seen “no” votes from a small handful of Republicans in the House. The opposition to the measures has led to Democrats smearing the GOP members as “pro-Putin.” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is the only House member to vote against every piece of legislation targeting Russia, including a resolution expressing support for Ukraine that was voted on shortly after the invasion began. Massie, Rep. Gosar (R-AZ), and Rep. Rosendale (D-MT) were the only ones to vote against the resolution, which was passed on...

Biden Requested a $813 Billion Military Budget, Congress Likely to Give Him More

Biden Requested a $813 Billion Military Budget, Congress Likely to Give Him More

For the 2023 fiscal year, President Biden requested a massive $813 billion military budget, about a 4% increase from the $782 billion that was approved for 2022. But for hawks in Congress, it’s not enough. Republicans are largely united in their calls for more military spending than what Biden wants. Republican hawks want the military budget to take inflation into account and add real growth on top of that. Last month, inflation reached 7.9%, a 40-year record high. Enough Democrats are on board with the idea of giving Biden more money than he asked for that Congress is expected to vote in...

President Biden Announces New Sanctions on Russia, Increases Troop Deployments to Europe

President Biden Announces New Sanctions on Russia, Increases Troop Deployments to Europe

On Thursday, President Biden announced more sanctions on Russia in response to Moscow’s military offensive in Ukraine. The sanctions aim to cut exports to Russia, block the assets of four major Russian banks, and target individual Russian “elites.” For now, the US and its allies are not trying to cut Moscow out of the SWIFT international payment system. Biden claimed the sanctions he announced, combined with the ones he imposed earlier in the week, are tougher than cutting Russia from SWIFT. He said the sanctions would “limit Russia’s ability to do business in dollars, euros, pounds and yen...
