Lopez Obrador criticizes US military aid to Ukraine: «It is the most irrational»

The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, criticized the United States Government for the large budgets allocated to Ukraine for military aid, considering this action as “irrational” and harmful.

«Now I was seeing that they are no longer authorizing support for the war in Ukraine, but how much have they allocated to the war in Ukraine? 30, 50 billion dollars for the war, it is the most irrational thing there can be, and harmful, » said the president of the Mexican State.

Likewise, he reiterated in his statements: «Every day we are fighting drug trafficking and for humanitarian reasons, helping the United States, because we do not want the young people of this neighboring country to die.»
