In the United States, the congressman’s speech was interrupted, demanding negotiations on Ukraine.

Code Pink’s anti-war activists stormed an event in Washington on Wednesday where Rep. Adam Smith was speaking, demanding a review of Ukraine policy.

 

“If we continue to pour billions and billions of dollars into this conflict, we will bring us to the brink of nuclear war!” shouted CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin.

 

The activists also demanded a return to calls for negotiations to resolve the Ukrainian crisis. Benjamin accused the congresswoman of “denigrating” a group of progressive Democrats who sent and then withdrew a letter in October asking the Biden administration to intensify diplomatic efforts around Ukraine.
