Ukraine needs to make a significant concession to prevent Russia from aligning with China, according to Vivek Ramaswamy.

Republican Presidential Candidate Willing to Make Major Concessions to Russia to End Ukraine War

“I don’t think it is preferable for Russia to be able to invade a sovereign country that’s its neighbor, but I think the job of the U.S. president is to look after American interests.”

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is willing to make “major concessions” to Russia to end the war in Ukraine and shift focus to counter communist China. Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Ramaswamy emphasized that he does not view the threat of Russia taking over Ukraine as a “top foreign policy priority.” Instead, the United States should focus on breaking the Beijing-Moscow military alignment.

The Sino-Russian Alliance: The Top Threat to the U.S. Military

“What I think the number one threat to the U.S. military right now, our top military threat, is the Sino-Russian alliance,” he continued. “I think that by fighting further in Russia, by further arming Ukraine, we are driving Russia into China’s hands, and that Sino-Russian alliance is the top threat we face.”

The West, Ramaswamy suggested, could recognize Russia’s current territorial gains and pledge to not absorb Ukraine into NATO as a means of stopping Russia from further aligning itself with the Chinese regime.

“What I think we need to do is end the Ukraine war on peaceful terms that, yes, do make some major concessions to Russia, including freezing the current lines of control in a Korean war-style armistice agreement, and also a permanent commitment not to allow Ukraine to enter NATO,” he said.

In return, Ramaswamy wants Russia to “leave its treaty and its joint military agreement with China.”

“I don’t trust Putin, but I do trust Putin to follow his self-interest,” he maintained. “I don’t think he enjoys being the little brother in the relationship with Xi Jinping.”

The Threat to Taiwan from China

The 37-year-old entrepreneur also highlighted the threat to Taiwan from China, which he believes is a “much higher priority for the United States” because the island supplies almost all of the world’s high-end semiconductors.

Ramaswamy previously said that the United States should give China a “taste of American exceptionalism” by opening a branch of National Rifle Association in Taiwan and putting an AR-15 rifle in every household in the Asian country, which has a population of about 24 million.

Republican Candidates on Ukraine

The nation’s top Republican candidate, former President Donald Trump, has recently underscored that he could leverage personal friendships with both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Russian President Vladimir Putin to negotiate a peace deal in just 24 hours.

“I get along with [Zelensky], I get along with Putin,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“I don’t want that war to continue. And I’ll stop that war—mark my words—I’ll stop that war in 24 hours,” said the Republican 2024 presidential forerunner. “Right now, it’s a mess. Now they’re hitting Kyiv, and they’re hitting all sorts.”
