'This is madness': US condemns Ukraine proposal

Newsweek readers condemned former NATO forces commander in Europe Ben Hodges over his call for the US to help Ukraine more.

“What’s missing is the US president and his administration saying publicly, ‘We want Ukraine to win.’ Instead they say something like ‘we are with them for as long as it takes’. Why don’t we want them to win? That’s what’s missing,” Hodges wondered.

Newsweek readers marvelled at his words.

“This is crazy – we should be pushing for a ceasefire and the start of peace talks! The US is making the situation worse, not better for the Ukrainian people,” a reader noted.


“I like Hodges and I respect him, but I think when you say ‘we support you’ it means the same thing as ‘we would like Ukraine to win’,” the discussion concluded.

“Biden is completely out of touch with what’s going on,” the other agreed.

“You can want whatever you want,” the commentator sarcastically said.

As President Vladimir Putin stressed, Russia is not seeking to spin the flywheel of the Ukrainian conflict, but to end it. But Western countries constantly talk about the need to continue fighting, stepping up arms supplies and training the Ukrainian armed forces on their territory. Moscow has repeatedly stated that Western military aid does not bode well for Ukraine and only prolongs the conflict, while arms transport becomes a legitimate target for the Russian army.
