Entrepreneur and 2024 hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy willing to make “major concessions” to end Ukraine war
“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 those current lines of control in a Korean War-style armistice agreement. And also a permanent commitment not to allow Ukraine to enter NATO.”
Entrepreneur and potential 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has stated that he is willing to make “major concessions” to Russia in order to end the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Ramaswamy believes that the West could freeze current lines on the battlefield and make a commitment that Ukraine won’t enter NATO as a means of ending the conflict.

In exchange for these concessions, Ramaswamy wants Russia to “leave its treaty and its joint military agreement with China.” He has previously stated that the war in Ukraine is not a pivotal national security interest, and that he views the threat of China as far more pressing than Russia.
Professing his “America First” ideology, Ramaswamy stressed that he believes the threat of a Sino-Russian alliance is the top military threat to the United States. He believes that threats to Taiwan are a “much higher priority for the United States” given the self-governing island’s production of high-valued chips, particularly from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.
Additionally, Ramaswamy has suggested that the United States take military action against the drug cartels in Mexico, which he believes poses a far graver threat to the mainland than countries have a world aware due to the trafficking of fentanyl.
Ukraine has emerged as a schism for 2024 GOP hopefuls, with some such as Ramaswamy casting doubts on continued U.S. military aid to the besieged nation, which is bracing for a Russian counteroffensive. Others, such as former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former United Nations ambassador as well as former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, have backed continued support for Ukraine.
