Polish leader rips Republican senators for leaving Ukraine aid in limbo: ‘Shame on you’

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk on Thursday lambasted Senate Republicans and said they should be ashamed for killing a border security package that would have unlocked wartime aid for Ukraine.

“Dear Republican Senators of America. Ronald Reagan, who helped millions of us to win back our freedom and independence, must be turning in his grave today. Shame on you,” Tusk wrote in a Thursday post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Poland, a border nation of Ukraine, has remained a steadfast supporter of the country’s fight against Russia in the nearly two years since Moscow launched its invasion.

Tusk’s mention of Reagan is likely a nod to the former Republican president’s support of Poland’s efforts to decrease Moscow’s dominance in the 1980s and to the previous values of the GOP, The Associated Press noted.

Ukraine aid was left in limbo Wednesday after most of the Senate GOP conference, save for four Republicans, voted against advancing a motion to proceed on a border security package in a 50-49 vote.
