Columnist Charles Krauthammer declared that Europe and the US were engaging in a “complete sellout” of Ukraine that was “the worst sellout of a European country since the Munich Agreement of 1938” on Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“There’s a complete sellout of the Ukrainian Republic by the Germans, and the French, and the British, and us to Russia. Even apart from the violation of the armistice in which the Russians essentially expel the last remaining Ukrainians, before the agreement was implemented, when it was signed, it gave control of the border over to Russia…it controls who goes out. It’s now pouring in weapons and men. It’s the worst sellout of a European country since the Munich Agreement of 1938” Krauthammer stated.
Associated Press White House Correspondent Julie Pace added, “I think the question is how long does the US and the Europeans sit here and say ‘we’re waiting to see if this so-called peace deal works.’ It’s clearly not working. Do they quickly go to sanctions? Will sanctions work? Probably not. I think there is a sense that it’s time to look at other options. It’s unclear though whether any of these leaders are going to act on what those other options would be.”
