Pelosi after Zelensky meeting: ‘Do not be bullied by bullies’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Sunday following a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv that the U.S. should “not be bullied by bullies” when asked about sending additional aid to Ukraine without provoking a response from Russia.


“Let me speak for myself … do not be bullied by bullies. If they’re making threats, you cannot back down. That’s my view of it,” Pelosi told reporters during a press conference in Poland.


Pelosi added that the purpose of the trip was to “send a clear message to the world: America stands with Ukraine.”
