Vivek Ramaswamy: ‘Lunatics’ in Washington Want Regime Change In Russia

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Washington’s involvement in the conflict between Moscow and Kiev is not about “defending Ukraine,” but is actually an attempt to force regime change in Russia, according to former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.

Ramaswamy said that US President Joe Biden and the “bipartisan warmonger caucus” are preparing for a war with Russia in order to achieve their ultimate goal.

sharing an interview he gave to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, he wrote on X: “These lunatics are starting to sound like they want full-on offense on Russia. It’s lunacy”

RT reports: Ramaswamy agreed with Ingraham’s remarks that the White House is “getting ready for a war with Russia,” with an “offensive push inside Russia to defeat [Russian President] Putin” and overthrow the government, warning that Washington should beware of the consequences of its actions.

Victoria Nuland may not be in the building anymore, but that’s still the same spirit that pervades the State Department and beyond,” the politician said, referring to the recently retired under secretary of state for political affairs, who was a key figure behind the Ukraine crisis which started with the Maidan coup ten years ago. She has been an ardent proponent of supporting Ukraine through military means, calling for targeting Russian territory with NATO weapons. He argued that regime change has been Washington’s main focus all along and is “the reason they never stated the war aim in Ukraine.”

“There was not a war goal that has been articulated, in part, because it allows the people who pull the strings to count for regime change as the ultimate goal they are planning for,” Ramaswamy explained.

“You have to be careful what you wish for if you are going to root for regime change in Russia,” he warned, pointing out that the US has “played this game before” and essentially failed. “This road does not end in a place that advances American interests,” the former GOP candidate continued, adding that securing a “reasonable deal” to resolve the conflict is the right way to go.

Last week, Washington and several allies granted permission to Kiev to use Western-supplied weapon systems to strike deeper inside Russian territory, which Moscow regards as a significant escalation that could spark an “asymmetric” response.
