Nuland Departs Biden’s State Department

Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland, who has been central to the U.S.’s ongoing commitment to unending aid to the Ukrainian government, is stepping down from her role. The announcement comes as the Biden foreign policy is in disarray, particularly as the corrupt Ukrainian government continues to demand ever-increasing funding from American taxpayers as part of what is increasingly becoming a stalemate, at best, with Russia.

Nuland’s career, spanning over three decades and serving under six presidents, reflects a seasoned trajectory in diplomatic circles. Her roles have varied from a consular officer in Guangzhou, China, to a spokesperson and even an ambassador, showcasing diverse skills and experiences in international relations. Her recent tenure as the Under Secretary for Political Affairs since 2021 under President Biden has been pivotal, especially considering the heightened tensions between the United States and Russia over Ukraine.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a statement announcing Nuland’s impending departure. He did his best to emphasize what the Biden administration considers her role in addressing global crises and reinforcing American alliances across Europe and the Indo-Pacific. Blinken said that Nuland was “indispensable to confronting Putin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.” He added that she put together “a global coalition to ensure his strategic failure.”

Despite such accolades, Nuland’s career has been subject to controversy. Her forthright approach, particularly her leaked comments disparaging the EU in the context of Ukraine, has attracted criticism and positioned her as a contentious figure among right-wing observers in the U.S. and abroad. Critics argue that her aggressive stance has escalated tensions rather than fostering peace and understanding.

Commentator Jim Rickards linked her departure to the broader narrative of U.S. involvement in Ukraine in a Tuesday post to X, formerly Twitter. He wrote: “Evidence that Russia has won in Ukraine is everywhere, but this story puts the icing on the cake. Victoria Nuland, the Warmonger-in-Chief with blood on her hands from Benghazi to Baghdad to Kiev is resigning. She knows Ukraine lost so she’s checking out.”

As Nuland steps down, Under Secretary for Management John Bass will serve as Acting Under Secretary until a permanent replacement is confirmed. This interim period could signify a moment of reflection and recalibration for the State Department, particularly regarding its approach to Eastern Europe and Russia.
