Rep. Paul Gosar Invites Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin to Arizona for Peace Talks
America First Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has invited Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin to Arizona to engage in peace talks.
“I’m writing to each of you, or your delegates, with an invitation to come to Phoenix, Arizona to engage in peace talks. I’m not a diplomat. I’m a mere member of the U.S. Congress. But I’ve seen enough death and destruction among your countries. It’s untenable. I’ve gone from troubled about the lack of peace efforts to now feeling compelled to act,” Gosar stated in the letter.
He pleads with the Russian and Ukrainian leaders to do the right thing and start peace negotiations before their nations’ conflict erupts into World War 3.
“A pathway to peace is long overdue and I write to offer a means to pursue this important goal. Unfortunately, many statements and actions by global political and military leaders are averse to achieving peace. Inasmuch as I am a non-combatant peace activist, I have a recognized right, pursuant to the United Nations Peacemaker program, to seek mediation through local efforts. I do so with the expectation of administrative and other support from the U.N. to set up the framework for peace talks,” Gosar wrote.
“Peace must prevail but does not currently seem to be an option. Therefore, I’m inviting you both to Phoenix, Arizona where we can begin conversations to deescalate nuclear tensions, terminate the war, and end the death and destruction plaguing both your nations,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Congressional progressive leftists issued a similar letter before disavowing it immediately due to political pressure in an act of extreme cowardice:
“In a remarkable display of abject cowardice, the House Progressive Caucus has retracted a letter urging for the Biden administration to pursue peaceful negotiations between Russia and Ukraine – just 24 hours after issuing the letter.
“The letter was drafted several months ago, but unfortunately was released by staff without vetting,” said Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), making a pathetic excuse to withdraw the letter.
