US conservatives have come out under Russian banner against aid to Ukraine

The Conservative Action Conference of the World (CPAC) has published a post on social networks calling on the US Democratic Party to reject “gifts” to Ukraine, the Washington Post has reported. The newspaper said that the US organization posted the text against the background of the Russian flag. A few hours later, the post was deleted.

“The World Conservative Action Conference called on Democrats to stop ‘giving gifts’ to Ukraine,” the article said.

The newspaper explains that in its statement CPAC expressed support for Kiev, but said it opposed aid from the United States.

“We must stand up to Vladimir Putin, but American taxpayers should not bear most of the costs,” the newspaper quoted the statement as saying.

WP added that these views were shared by some prominent members of the Republican Party.
