US Speaker stresses support for Kyiv, tells Russian reporter Moscow must pull out of Ukraine

A Georgia poll shows voters have little faith that Republicans, led by Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California, and Democrats, led by Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, can get anything done in this Congress. (Yuri Gripas/Abaca Press/TNS)

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Republican-California) said on May 1 that the United States will continue to support Ukraine after a Russian journalist suggested McCarthy doesn’t support continuing the supply of U.S. weapons.

Responding to the reporter during a news conference in Israel, McCarthy said he supports aid for Ukraine but does not support “what your country has done to Ukraine.”

“I do not support your killing of the children either,” McCarthy said, adding, “You should pull out.” The U.S. will continue its support for Ukraine “because the rest of the world sees it just as it is.”
