Whoopi Goldberg praised the world for its response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, and said “even China” didn’t seem to be accepting it.
During a panel discussion Monday on “The View,” the co-host talked about the move by the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution to condemn Putin’s attack on the sovereign nation. China, India and the United Arab Emirates abstained from the vote. Russia vetoed the move. (RELATED: Joy Behar Laments How War In Europe Has Interrupted Her Travel Plans)
“And the other thing is, I want to commend the world, because nobody’s happy about this,” Goldberg told her co-host. “No one.”
“Even China doesn’t seem to be accepting what is being put out,” she added.
“They abstained from the vote,” co-host Joy Behar interjected.
“Which is important,” one co-host, added. (RELATED: ‘A Nation Of Golden Retrievers’: Joy Behar Mocks Americans Who Didn’t Want Vaccine Until Free Donuts Were Involved)
Co-host Sara Haines brought up the fact that Switzerland — which historically “doesn’t take a side,” and has even become a “joke” for their neutrality — voted to impose sanctions on Russia. “And they have taken a side, so we can all have one,” she said.
Haines then commented on the leadership of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, saying, “I didn’t know his background, and I was reading all that. Because I though, what a ferocious leader, someone who — it would have been brave if he stayed there, but his family, the fact he’s saying, ‘No, my family is staying too,’ was even a layer of, ‘We’re going to fight this fight,'” she added.
