Former President Bush and Ukraine President Zelenskyy Will Hold Joint Appearance

Former President George W. Bush

( – Former President George W. Bush and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will have a public conversation on the importance of continuing American military and financial aid to the Ukrainians, who are fighting off an invasion by Russia.

The invasion, which has turned out to be the biggest war in Europe since World War II, began almost nine months ago as Russian leader Vladimir Putin sent 200,000 troops to conquer Ukraine in a bid to restore the former Soviet empire.

The fierce resistance of Ukraine’s defenders combined with the supplies of top-notch American weapons systems has made the task impossible for the Russians, who have lost at least 80,000 troops killed in battle and more than 17,000 units of destroyed military equipment.

“Ukraine is the frontline in the struggle for freedom and democracy,” David Kramer, the managing director for global policy at the George W. Bush Institute, which will host the Bush – Zelenskyy event.

“It’s literally under attack as we speak, and it is vitally important that the United States provide the assistance, military and otherwise, to help Ukraine defend itself,” Kramer told CNN, as cited by Newsmax.

“President Bush believes in standing with Ukraine,” his institute’s official emphasized.

Former President George W. Bush and Ukraine’s leader Zelenskyy had a virtual meeting in May when the former called the latter the “Winston Churchill of our time” for his heroic resistance to Putin’s attack on the Free World.

Zelenskyy’s decision to remain in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on February 24, when the Russians attacked rather than be evacuated abroad, is deemed vital for the success of Ukraine’s defense.

The United States of America has supported Ukraine’s struggle for freedom and defense of the Free World from Putin’s Russia by sending over $18 billion in military and economic aid so far.

However, as the Republican Party is expected to win a majority in the US House of Representatives in the midterm election, the chamber’s new Speaker would likely be Rep. Kevin McCarthy. He has stated that the GOP would oppose a “blank check” to Ukraine.

George W. Bush’s aide David Kramer insisted that America’s military and financial aid to Ukraine served the best interests of the United States.

He argued domestic party politics should not be allowed to hurt Ukraine’s chances of winning the war.

“There are those on both sides of the aisle who say this is none of our business, we have enough problems at home, why are we spending money on these things? Our view is that actually, it is our business because these do these affect us, and they can affect average Americans,” Kramer concluded.
