After backlash, House progressives withdraw Ukraine letter

EGF Senior Fellow Mark Hannah appeared on The World on October 26, 2022.

Thirty members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus publicized an open letter to the Biden administration on Monday, urging direct talks with Russian President Vladmir Putin to end the war in Ukraine. On Tuesday, the signatories retracted the letter. The Eurasia Group Foundation’s Mark Hannah talks with The World’s Marco Werman about why the letter caused such an uproar.
