"The US government and, in particular, the neocons in the White House and elsewhere participated in and supported the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of Ukraine," notes the Democrat.
All of Washington’s decisions since the hostilities in Ukraine escalated in early 2022 have been about prolonging and maximizing the violence and bloodshed produced by this conflict, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. insisted, speaking in a podcast interview.
“The Russians cannot lose in Ukraine, as this is existential to them,” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. underscored as he spoke with the hosts of the All-In Podcast.
He added: “We are being told they are losing, but they cannot afford to lose.”

Russia has been “building up” its forces, and it has “an artillery advantage,” the Democratic presidential candidate pointed out
, adding that the US, which has been funneling vast amounts of weapons to Ukraine
, does not have the ability to replace the arms lost in the conflagration.
Washington has been doing everything to prolong the Ukraine conflict
, and the Biden administration has been displaying “absolute intransigence” regarding the many opportunities to end the conflagration. But this can be explained by the fact that the US has been on “a mission to maximize casualties, to prolong what is, essentially, a war of attrition,” RFK Jr. said.
The lawyer-turned-politician took a step back at this point in the interview and said that the “real story” started in 2014, when “the US government and, in particular, the neocons in the White House and elsewhere participated in and supported the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of Ukraine.”
RFK states the Ukraine war started with the coup when the western alliance overthrew a democratic leader of Ukraine with their puppet.

“They helped to install in Kiev a very anti-Russian government. This government started enacting a series of laws that turned the Russian populations of the Donbass region into “second-class” citizens. They illegalized, essentially, their language and culture, and then, ultimately, began killing them,” said.
This is what prompted Russia’s response when it started its special military operation
in February 2022 to protect these people. The Ukraine conflict could have been settled if the Minsk accords of 2014 had been followed through with, believes the politician, underscoring that there was no question that Washington had been actively integrating Ukrainian forces into NATO – something that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said from the outset was a “red line.”
Looking ahead, Kennedy said the Kiev regime cannot continue to fight without US support, and that if he became president, he would settle the conflict. As for the incumbent in the White House – Democratic POTUS Joe Biden – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. acknowledged that he was a “go-to-war guy.”
“I would settle this,” reiterated Kennedy, underscoring the need for de-escalating tensions with Russia and questioning the very need for NATO.
“The principal job of a president of the United States is to keep the nation out of war,” John F. Kennedy said.
These remarks echo what the Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said earlier in the month, when he pointed out that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had a chance to avoid the conflict with Russia by simply refusing to join NATO.
“In 2019 actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelensky ran as the peace candidate winning the Ukrainian presidency with 70% of the vote. As Benjamin Abelow observes in his brilliant book, ‘How the West Brought War to Ukraine,’ Zelensky almost certainly could have avoided the 2022 war with Russia simply by uttering five words – ‘I will not join NATO’,” Kennedy said in a tweet.
When Robert F. Kennedy Jr., 69, tossed his hat into the presidential race, he explained his motivation to run as stemming from the “rise of corporatism in this country,” as well the fact that the modern Democratic Party is “becoming the party of war, the party of censorship, the party of fear and the party of neocons and Wall Street.”
