McConnell leads Senate GOP delegation in trip to Kyiv to meet Zelensky

Source: Washington Post

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met Saturday with a U.S. Senate delegation led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in Kyiv, calling the visit “a powerful signal of bipartisan support for Ukraine from the U.S. Congress and the American people,” his presidential office said.

In Washington, however, a new round of funding for Ukraine’s battle against the Russian invasion is held up in the Senate because of a GOP member’s objection.

In a video posted by Politico journalist Christopher Miller, McConnell and fellow Republican Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), John Barrasso (Wyo.) and John Cornyn (Tex.) were greeted by Zelensky on a Kyiv street.

“Russia is committing genocide against the Ukrainian people,” Zelensky said in a news release announcing the senators’ visit. “Europe has not seen such crimes since World War II.”

5. I was going to say that the display of cheekiness is stunning.

I'm hoping that Zelenskyy told him what he thought about McConnell's colleague Rand Paul before the meet-cute ended.

2. Clinging to the political middle for Elections 2022

Tried and true strategy. By Election Day 60% of voters won't know there is any difference between Republicans and Democrats because the voters are so shallow and ill-informed.

I think he’s got their number. What a difference in his demeanor than when Joe met with him.

Of all those republicans I'm sure one of them had to ask about the infamous laptop.
We'll find out because the one who does it will want Mar A Lago to hear about it.

14. If he wants it to be a powerful display of bipartisan support...

Would it not make more sense for him to organize a bipartisan delegation for the visit? He seems to have only brought GOP representatives, when he could have organized a visit with Democratic representatives to truly demonstrate the solidarity he refers to.

33. My thoughts exactly

That is the meaning of the word "bipartisan". That is the "display". Not a separate visit from the opposition party of the POTUS.

And of course this is particularly hypocritical when its HIS party that is stalling help because of Rand Paul. Also his party who is led by a Putin fluffer, who has tried in the past to extort favours for military aid to fight Russian aggression.

15. Zelensky should hold them as enemy collaborators - and trade them in for Ukrainian hostages

McConnell, for some old drunk.

McCarthy, for a village idiot.

And Lindsay, for a Babushka.

Or did she think it was too little, too late? Unlike Susan Lisa has character. She means what she says. Would make a great Democrat.
