Russian state television experts voiced their support for the Republicans in an episode posted on Thursday on social media and argued that aid to Ukraine would be cut off if the party took control of Congress after the mid-term elections.
During the segment that was posted on Twitter by The daytime beast columnist and founder of Russian Media Monitor Julia Davis, presenter of state television Dmitry Suslov predicted that the “cornucopia” of funding for Ukraine will “gradually run out”.
“According to the mid-term result, the main voting day will be on Tuesday, many Donald Trump supporters should go to the House of Representatives, they share the” America first “premise and believe that in light of the internal difficulties experienced in the United States, it is inappropriate to continue spending billions of dollars regime in Kiev, he said.
Suslov mentioned representative Paul Gosar, a Republican from Arizona, who last month invited Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Arizona to participate in peace talks.
“Will there be more voices like Paul Gosar, more of these congressmen?” he asked.
Political scientist Sergei Sudakov added: “I believe that there are more and more of them every day.”
“Americans are starting to look into their pockets, including those politicians who are not indifferent to ask a simple question: Trump’s” Make America Great Again “formula, MAGA, these are people who begin to say:” Why are we financing not only America’s interests, but Biden’s personal interests, the interests of the puppeteers behind Biden’s back? … The key question is, elections will be held, I’m sure the Republicans will win. What’s next?
Sudakov also suggested that in the mid-term elections, Americans would not want to vote for governors who support Ukraine’s financing.
“They say,” I don’t want to vote for this trader! ” For reasons I don’t understand, he is throwing my taxpayers’ money into a war that I am not benefiting from, he said. “The big question American voters are now asking is, ‘When do I get back the expenses I personally spent on the war that I don’t need.’
Russian state television experts have expressed their support for former president Donald Trump. In September, state television commentators called Trump “beloved” and “our candidate.”
GOP leaders were somewhat quarrelsome over the financing of Ukraine’s war efforts. While Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said the upper house would continue to provide aid to Ukraine, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy suggested that funding for Ukraine could decline if Republicans regained control of the House in 2022.
“People will be in a recession and won’t write blank checks to Ukraine,” said McCarthy. “They just won’t do it … It’s not a free blank check.”
Rep. Liz Cheney, a Republican in Wyoming, denounced McCarthy’s comments, calling them “shameful.”
McConnell has promised to send more money to Ukraine.
“Russia continues to escalate att*cks on Ukrainian civilians and energy infrastructure. The lessons are clear to us, ”McConnell said in a statement last month. “Biden’s administration and Ukraine’s friends around the world need to be quicker and more active to provide Ukraine with the help they need.”
Newsweek contacted the Republican National Committee and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for comment.
