“World order is under threat”
Ukraine Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Friday called for more military aid to Ukraine, saying the “world order is at risk.”
Graham said: “We continue to call on the American people and Congress to send aid, economic and military aid to Ukraine to help it achieve its goal of expelling the Russian occupier from Ukraine.
Sens. Graham, Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) met with US and Ukrainian officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“To achieve this goal, the Ukrainian army needs tanks. I’m tired of the horrible game of who will send the tanks and when. Putin is trying to rewrite the map of Europe by force of arms. The world order is under threat,” said the South Carolina senator.
“To the Germans: Send tanks to Ukraine because they are needed. Putin’s defeat in Ukraine is in your national interest. To the Biden administration: send in American tanks so others can follow our lead,” he said.
“If Putin gets away, there is Taiwan. If Putin wins Ukraine and is not prosecuted under international law, everything we’ve said since World War II will become a joke. It will continue outside of Ukraine,” Graham continued.
