SENATOR VANCE & REP. GAETZ DEMAND ANSWERS ON U.S. GOVERNMENT-LINKED UKRAINE NGO WHICH PUBLISHED ENEMIES LIST OF U.S. LAWMAKERS

“All Americans can agree that our tax dollars should not be supporting direct attacks on U.S. persons based upon reasonable political disagreement, and especially not direct attacks on U.S. legislators based solely upon their vote.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator JD Vance (R-OH) and Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) demanded information from Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on a hit piece by a Ukrainian NGO led by an individual with links to the Biden State Department. The article “identifies” Americans, including including 21 senators and 116 members of the House, who have purportedly “mirrored Kremlin propaganda” by holding stances against the war in Ukraine and further U.S. aid to Ukraine.

“If this were merely some random news outlet in a foreign nation, such a hit piece would be easily ignored. But the founder of the group itself, Anatoly Bondarenko, is listed on a U.S. government website as supported by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs,” write the lawmakers. “Needless to say, whatever one thinks of American foreign aid or support for Ukraine, all Americans can agree that our tax dollars should not be supporting direct attacks on U.S. persons based upon reasonable political disagreement, and especially not direct attacks on U.S. legislators based solely upon their vote.”
