When Vice President Kamala Harris returned to the United States from a trip to Germany where she spoke at the Munich Security Conference denouncing Russia for human rights abuses, her plans ran afoul.
“The @VP’s blue-and-white plane is broken down. Kamala Harris will be flying back to the US from Germany on the C-17 support plane,” according to Jennifer Jacobs on Twitter.

An official from the White House attributed the altered flight plans to maintenance issues.
Kamala Harris strongly denounced Russia’s crimes against humanity at the Munich Security Conference.
“In the case of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, We have examined the evidence. We know the legal standards and there is no doubt. The United States has formally determined that Russia has committed crimes against humanity,” Harris stated.
Also, the Vice President stepped up US rhetoric of hostility toward Russia.
“The United States will support Ukraine for as long as it takes. We will always stand on the side of freedom, democracy, and justice.”
Ukraine is not a member of NATO. One of the most corrupt countries in all of Europe is this one. About a dozen opposition groups were outlawed by Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky, who also nationalized the media, curbed free speech, and oversaw the persecution of the Orthodox Church.
Prior to the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991, which resulted in Ukraine’s independence, the United States promised that NATO would not advance even a fraction eastward.
Nonetheless, the United States has regarded Ukraine much like a NATO partner under the direction of President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Tony Blinken, and Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland.
By providing military and foreign aid to Ukraine in response to Russian aggression, the Biden administration has waging a proxy war there against a nuclear-armed adversary.
