Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Controversial Opposition to Aid for Ukraine

Representative Marjorie Taylor With her vehement opposition to providing additional military aid to Ukraine, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) sparked controversy by referring to it as “the most repulsive, disgusting thing happening.” Greene castigated those who advocated for increased aid on the “War Room” podcast hosted by Steve Bannon, stating, “I truly abhor them for doing this.”

Greene’s firm opposition to providing assistance to Ukraine is predicated on the conviction that doing so would tantamount to sanctioning the “slaughter and murder” of Ukrainian troops. She argued that the $60 billion emergency funding requested by President Biden for Ukraine would be better spent strengthening U.S. border security.

The congresswoman claimed that U.S. politicians are exerting pressure on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to maintain the conflict against Russia, to the extent of dispatching “injured soldiers” and “amputees” to the frontlines. Greene contended that the United States compelled Ukraine to engage in combat and criticized the Biden administration’s decision to prioritize military assistance for a non-NATO country.

Greene argues that the hesitancy to extend further assistance to Ukraine stems from an absence of regard for the interests of the United States. Fears of Russian aggression toward other European countries were disregarded, and it was implied that the United States’ preoccupation with Ukraine was for reasons beyond comprehension.

Moreover, Greene has been vociferous in her opposition to a national security package worth $95 billion that was approved by the Senate and includes funding for the Indo-Pacific region, Ukraine, and Israel. She issued a cautionary message to House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La) that a vote on Ukraine aid might force her to propose a motion to vacate, analogous to the one utilized by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) in October to remove former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Critics have condemned and prompted debate over Greene’s statements, viewing her stance as insensitive and misguided. Supporters of Ukraine assistance contend that it is an imperative action to bolster a sovereign state besieged by Russia and to deter additional acts of aggression from the country.
