US President Joe Biden is using the Ukraine conflict in a scheme to devise a “regime change in Russia” and feed the military-industrial complex, a former American congresswoman has said.
“This is about regime change in Russia and exploiting this war to strengthen NATO and feed the military-industrial complex,” insisted former US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii in televised remarks on Friday on Fox News about the massive US-led military aid shipped to Ukraine to fight against Russian forces.
“It’s not about the people of Ukraine or protecting democracy,” said Gabbard, a US Army veteran and 2020 presidential candidate. “To Joe Biden, it’s even about bringing about new world order. We’ve got to lead it, he says, and he’s trying to do just that, even if it means bringing us to the brink of nuclear catastrophe.”

With the US concurrently pumping tens of billions of dollars worth of weapons into Ukraine, Gabbard further argued that the conflict there has “never been about morality.”
Biden publicly declared earlier this year that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power,” in remarks that the White House later tried to retract.
The US president also told reporters back in March that “there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it,” a claim later echoed by his advisor, Brian Deese, who described high energy costs as the price of forging “the future of the liberal world order,” RT reported Saturday.
The development came as a senior Russian foreign ministry official warned that its diplomatic ties with Washington could be broken off should the US seize its assets or brand Russia a "state sponsor of terrorism."
"We warn the Americans of the detrimental consequences of such actions that will permanently damage bilateral relations, which is neither in their nor in our interests," said Alexander Darchiev as quoted by Russia's official TASS news agency on Saturday.
Filling in for Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday, the former Congresswoman further issued a scathing condemnation of the Biden administration’s anti-Russia sanctions, insisting that they have only hurt the US and Europe while Russia rakes in record energy profits.
“Europe is in a massive energy crisis right now,” Gabbard also underlined, citing record power prices in France, public lighting cutbacks and looming heating shortages in Germany, and restrictions imposed on home and business energy usage in Britain and Spain.
“Why is all this happening?” she then questioned, adding: “Because of Joe Biden’s sanctions, which are nothing short of a modern day siege. This is a supply problem that Joe Biden created, one that Russia is now profiting from.”
This is while the US and its European allies have imposed multiple rounds of economic sanctions on Moscow following the February launch of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine in its bid to secure its borders from US an NATO threats and Ukraine’s bid to join the US-led military alliance.
