Ukraine has put Tulsi Gabbard and Rand Paul on their list of Americans pushing Russian Propaganda

Tulsi Gabbard, a former representative from Hawaii, and current Kentucky Senator Rand Paul have been named by Ukraine as examples of American politicians, scholars, and activists that they claim advocated “propaganda Russian.”

According to a report by Good Word, the Ukrainian Center for Combating Disinformation, which was established in 2021 by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to research the effects of Russian disinformation, put together the list. The Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council includes the center.

The list, which also includes journalist Glenn Greenwald, military strategist Edward Luttwak, political scientist John Mearsheimer, and retired US Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, does not explain what the repercussions are for those whom Ukraine clearly holds accountable for advancing the Kremlin line. However, he provides justifications for listing.

Paul claimed in April that President Joe Biden encouraged Ukraine to join NATO, which led Russia to invade its neighbor. He also said, “You can also say that the countries they attacked were part of Russia. Or the Soviet Union.”

Antony Blinken, the secretary of state, promptly censured Paul for it, claiming that Russia was not justified in invading Ukraine. Former Representative Gabbard claimed that Ukraine has 25 risky biological laboratories that may discharge lethal diseases and that the United States had been annoying Putin for a long time.

The ex-representative was charged with endorsing Russian propaganda. Greenwald, who Ukraine said did not want the United States to assist Ukraine in preventing inciting Russia into nuclear war, backed up the assertions made by the bio lab.

Other known entities and US citizens are on the list of “Russian propagandists” including political figures, experts, and public figures from Germany, Switzerland, Brazil, Poland, and France.

Other Americans that made the list include: political and business adviser Harlan Ullman, author Paul Pillar, economists Jeffrey Sachs and Steve Hanke, political analyst Brian Berletic, academics Patrick Basham and Clifford Kiracofe, former military officer Army David Payne, ex-diplomat Michael Springmann, retired intelligence officer Scott Ritter, finance specialist Jason Ross, businessman Mike Callicrate, politicians Geoff Young and Diane Sare, journalists Caleb Maupin and Tony Magliano, retired business consultant George Koo, former Republican Senate member Jim Jatras, former CIA officer Ray McGovern, former Virginia State Senator Richard Black and political analyst Graham Fuller
