‘I Don’t Support Your Killing Of Children’: McCarthy Shuts Down Russian Reporter, Defends Ukraine Aid



House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) vehemently shut down a Russian reporter during a press conference in Israel on Monday, where he spoke strongly in favor of U.S. aid to Ukraine in response to the reporter’s question regarding unlimited military aid.

The reporter said he knew McCarthy didn’t support “unlimited” aid to Ukraine and asked if the U.S. might alter its policy of supporting the country as it fends off a Russian invasion.

“We know that you don’t support the current unlimited and uncontrolled supplies of weaponry and aid to Ukraine. So can you comment? Is it possible, if in the near future the U.S. policy regarding sending weaponry to Ukraine will change?” asked the Russian reporter.

“Yeah, I’m not sure. The sound here is not good. Did he say I don’t support aid to Ukraine? No. I vote for aid for Ukraine,” McCarthy replied. “I support aid for Ukraine.”

“I do not support what your country has done to Ukraine. I do not support your killing of the children either. And I think for one standpoint, you should pull out and I don’t think it’s right. And we will continue to support because the rest of the world sees it just as it is,” the speaker concluded.

McCarthy finished his two-day visit to the Middle East on Monday and met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem
