Political Science’s Justin Buchler worries that funding for Ukraine will decrease if Republicans take control of Congress

Global News (Canada)Justin Buchler, associate professor of political science, said that the pushback against more funding for Ukraine is largely driven by Republican candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump. “I think if the Republicans take control of Congress, as it looks like they will, I see very little likelihood of funding continuing, at least at the level that it has,” he said. “Opposition to Russia really carried through in the Republican Party until Donald Trump (became president), who aligned himself very strongly with Vladimir Putin.”
