VoteVets Senior Advisor Alexander Vindman on Announcement of US Troop Movement to Eastern Europe

Washington, DC — VoteVets Senior Advisor Alexander Vindman has released the following statement on the Biden administration’s decision to deploy troops to Eastern Europe:

“Deployment of US troops to Eastern Europe is critically important in demonstrating to Vladimir Putin that any further movement into Ukraine will be contained and costly. This move is about preventing another European war, not starting one. Vladimir Putin is a dictatorial, aggressive thinker, but he isn’t irrational. To the degree that we can complicate his calculus, when it comes to further encroachment into Ukraine, we help avert disaster. While nothing is ever a sure thing, President Biden is showing decisive leadership in this moment, and making the right move to convince Putin to stand down.”
