Republicans descend into foreign policy factionalism over Russia-Ukraine standoff

While Russia’s reinvasion of Ukraine this week stress-tests the Biden administration, it’s also forcing Republicans to confront their own divisions.

The GOP is all over the map politically, as Russian President Vladimir Putin tries to redraw his own boundaries. Former President Donald Trump privately has signaled a split with more isolationist voices from the MAGA wing of the party who have excused Russia’s aggression, who themselves are at odds with more establishment Republicans over how to confront Russian aggression, if at all.

  1. Bottom line: does the Russian occupation of eastern Ukraine affect the US? No. Does threatening war when there's no will to wage it benefit the US? No.
