After speaking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Chief of Staff, dictator-loving actor/activist Sean Penn lamented on Wednesday that the U.S. and Poland have not yet delivered “desperately NEEDED jets” to Ukraine to combat the Russian invasion.
“I JUST got off a call with President Zelensky’s Chief of staff, Andriy Yermak,” tweeted Penn, whose past BFFs have included socialist strongmen Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. “Somewhere in the bureaucratic chain between our White House & the Polish Gov., the desperately NEEDED jets are not yet delivered to Ukraine. Public outcry may find the bottleneck.”
Poland had offered to give its entire fleet of MiG-29 fighter jets to the U.S. in exchange for a chance to buy American F-16s as part of a deal to bolster the Ukrainian air force. But Pentagon press secretary John Kirby later distanced the U.S. from the proposal, saying that while the decision to hand over jets to Ukraine is in the hands of the Polish government, American involvement “raises serious concerns for the entire NATO alliance.”
Penn also shared an article Wednesday from The Telegraph headlined, “It is the world’s duty to do all we can to stop Vladimir Putin.”
It remains unclear why Sean Penn’s opinion matters to anyone.
