We support Ukraine in its war against Russia, but unfortunately, we’ve found that people with Ukrainian flags in their Twitter names seem to have some of the worst takes. (For a while there, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin was flying two flags, but for some reason, she’s taken them down.)

There’s been a lot of debate about how much aid the United States has been sending Ukraine, where the president’s son used to sit on a board. NPR is taking the brave step of looking at some “resurfaced” questions about Ukraine’s suitability as the recipient of so much aid.

The AP reports:

As it presses ahead with providing tens of billions of dollars in military, economic and direct financial support aid to Ukraine and encourages its allies to do the same, the Biden administration is now once again grappling with longstanding worries about Ukraine’s suitability as a recipient of massive infusions of American aid.

But [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelenskyy’s weekend firings of his top prosecutor, intelligence chief and other senior officials have resurfaced those concerns and may have inadvertently given fresh attention to allegations of high-level corruption in Kyiv made by one outspoken U.S. lawmaker.

That outspoken U.S. lawmaker is Rep. Victoria Spartz.

Vladimir Putin has managed to infiltrate the AP and NPR with his propaganda.
