Lawmaker Accuses Biden Energy Policy Of Bolstering Russia

Based on what K.T. McFarland said to Newsmax on Monday, Russia will be able to fund its war against Ukraine through oil sales indefinitely, thanks to President Joe Biden.

McFarland said Biden’s assault on fossil fuels has not only led to high energy costs but also benefitted Putin and made him that much more dangerous and powerful.

In this war of attrition, McFarland, who was deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration, said on “Wake Up America” that Russia has more or less infinite ability to put troops on the front lines and to buy ammunition from other countries as it runs out of its own. On the other hand, Ukraine depends on the kindness and goodwill of its neighbors, particularly the United States, to keep fighting.

McFarland emphasized that a more extensive and wealthier nation, like Russia, will inevitably emerge victorious in a stalemated war. Thus, it’s inevitable that Ukraine will not win this war, no matter what happens.

Because of this, according to McFarland, the sooner they “all get to the negotiating table,”  the better. Stop the fighting and let Ukraine rebuild with aid from the West, said McFarland.

Additionally, she demeaned the sanctions imposed on Russia by the Biden administration in response to the incarceration of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, stressing that until you bankrupt Russia with lower energy prices, then Russia will keep on fighting.

According to McFarland, a substantial decline in oil prices is the only thing that would capture the attention of Russian President Vladimir Putin, so the sanctions imposed on Russian individuals and businesses are pointless.

She pointed out that if reelected, former President Donald Trump has pledged to allow massive oil exploration, significantly lowering energy prices.

If Putin refuses to consent to negotiations, Trump, according to McFarland, can threaten to arm Ukraine offensively, and if Kyiv refuses to negotiate, Trump can threaten to cut off their weapons. According to McFarland, this will put pressure on both parties to agree.
