Congresswoman Kaptur calls Spartz's position ‘reckless’ aid to Kremlin

Spreading narratives that cast doubt on the cooperation between the US and Ukraine’s authorities that oppose Russian aggression helps the Kremlin and its anti-Ukrainian propaganda.

Marcy Kaptur, Democratic Congresswoman, Co-Chair of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus underscored this in her statement.

"On an overwhelmingly bipartisan basis, the United States Congress – led by the Congressional Ukraine Caucus – has spearheaded support for the sovereign nation of Ukraine in its heroic efforts to defend the homeland and end Russia’s brutal war," the lawmaker stressed after Republican Congresswoman Victoria Spartz had sent an appeal to President Joe Biden regarding interaction with the Ukrainian authorities.

Kaptur emphasized that while some members of Congress may seek to sow division and inflame tensions, "as a whole, the United States Congress stands firmly behind President Zelenskyy and his leadership as Ukraine battles for its survival."

Kaptur noted that the level and scope of the United States’ cooperation with President Zelensky’s office “gives no reason to doubt the loyalty of any official.”

"Those who are spreading wild narratives aimed at undermining Ukrainian officials during the war are recklessly providing aid to Putin and his propagandists. The United States is committed to Ukraine’s victory, and the Ukrainian people have no greater friend than the United States," the Democratic Congresswoman emphasized.

The politician stated that the United States, as an ally of Ukraine, "will continue working hand in hand with President Zelenskyy and his office to see that this war is brought to an end."

As reported, Representative Victoria Spartz asked Biden on Friday to provide an explanation of oversight procedures performed relating to Andriy Yermak, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine.
