“There is a fight in the world now between democracy and autocracy; its manifestation at the time is in Ukraine”
Former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi believes that both the Democrats and the Republicans will continue backing Ukraine as long as it takes to win. In an interview with Associated Press, she said that her country would support Ukraine as part of a broader U.S. commitment to democracy abroad in the face of authoritarian aggression.
“Support for Ukraine has been bipartisan and bicameral, in both houses of Congress by both parties, and the American people support democracy in Ukraine,” Pelosi told AP. “I believe that we will continue to support as long as we need to support democracy … as long as it takes to win.” Pelosi was one the first U.S. representatives to visit war-torn Kyiv last year. According to her, it was very dangerous. “We never feared about it, but we thought we could die because we’re visiting a serious, serious war zone,” Pelosi said.
