Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) voted against the Biden administration’s plan to send $40 billion worth of weapons to the Ukraine government.

While speaking on the House Floor Wednesday, Gaetz criticized Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, but he said America should “stay out of it.”

The congressman pointed out that the US has just lost a war against the Taliban and it cannot afford another costly misadventure overseas. Gaetz added, the American people are being lied to about US involvement in the “Ukraine crisis.”

“Regime change in Russia is there actual objective, not defending Ukraine,” he added. “To achieve this goal, their willing to send billions to Kyiv that will line the pockets of corrupts officials just like we did in Afghanistan. We are sleep walking into a war.”
