As the Ukraine crisis continues to escalate, the White House announced Wednesday that Kamala Harris, Vice President of Kamala Harris, would travel to Europe.
Harris will travel to Germany for the Munich Security Conference. This is as European leaders consider increasing tensions with Russian President Vladimir Putin. As he builds up troops at the border, Putin is still weighing whether to invade Ukraine.
Sabrina Singh was the vice president’s press secretary. She stated that Harris’ visit would “demonstrate [our ironclad commitment] to NATO Allies” as well as “underscore[our] commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and sovereignty.”
Harris is often dispatched by the White House to deal with politically sensitive issues. This includes her assignment to address the “root causes”, President Joe Biden’s Border Crisis and fight against Republican Election Security Laws.
Harris has not made any significant progress on either of these issues.
In November, the vice president was sent to France to improve relations with America’s oldest ally. This was after the Biden administration upset the French by not informing them about the nuclear submarine deal with Australia.
Harris continues to send a message that Putin would not be pleased with the Ukrainian invasion.
Harris stated in January that Russia and Vladimir Putin could violate Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Harris spoke out in a January interview.
