Candace Owens Calls Zelensky a ‘Very Bad Character’ Who’s Hurting Ukraine

Candace Owens, the Black American woman who opposes anything to do with the phrase, “Black Lives Matter” sent out a social media post admonishing how “Russians are being treated in America.” She then tweeted out “Russian Lives Matter.”

The conservative commentator then criticized Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, stating in a tweet Thursday that he is “a very bad character who is working with globalists against the interests of his own people.”

“I will not move one inch away from that assessment—ever—no matter how flowery the media depictions of him are,” Owens added.

Her comment comes days after she backed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claim that Russia created Ukraine, which Putin has used to defend his decision to invade the country.

“Ukraine wasn’t a thing until 1989. Ukraine was created by the Russians…They speak Russian,” Owens said on her talk show Tuesday.

Representative Madison Cawthorn, a Republican from North Carolina, told supporters at a recent appearance that Zelensky was a “thug.”

“Remember that the Ukrainian government is incredibly corrupt and is incredibly evil and has been pushing woke ideologies,” Cawthorn said in a video first published by North Carolina news station WRAL.

Cawthorn faced backlash for his comments after they were made public last week.

On Wednesday, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, said that both Russia and Ukraine had violated peace agreements in recent years.

“This is an eight-year-long smoldering conflict in which peace agreements have been routinely violated by both sides,” Greene said in a video.

Her comments drew criticism from fellow Republican Liz Cheney, of Wyoming on Thursday.

“Putin is targeting and slaughtering civilians in a brutal unprovoked war against Ukraine, a sovereign democratic nation,” Cheney tweeted. “Only the Kremlin and their useful idiots would call that ‘a conflict in which peace agreements have been violated by both sides.'”

Owens’ tweet Thursday also attracted immediate criticism.

“They’re really all-in on this. In retrospect the idea that Putin was blackmailing Trump gave the former guy too much credit,” journalist Matthew Yglesias tweeted.

Last week, Owens said that she found the way Russian citizens in the U.S. and abroad are being treated is “appalling.”

“That our leaders and government institutions are allowing for—and at times calling for this discrimination following their global ‘black lives matter’ hysteria is quite telling,” Owens tweeted. “Russian lives matter.”

Owens’ tweet was retweeted by the Russian Embassy in the United States and the Russian Embassy.

No stranger to controversy or not passing up a chance to add fuel to the flames, Owens did not back down from her initial statement.

“For those of you sitting on the edge or [sic] your seats—I stand by every word of my tweet pertaining to the treatment of Russian citizens abroad,” she wrote.

“Those calling for russian students, opera singers, etc to be banned are the kind of scum who would have demanded the Japanese internment,” she continued.

The spewing of Russian propaganda against the teachings of racism not existing in America, particularly against Black people, has left people disgusted with Owens.

  1. I liked this woman but I think she lost her mind on this. You want to reenslave a country? Damn.

  2. Candace Owens forces people to look beyond the headlines. All lives matter. War discounts this and should never be used as a solution to settle differences. In that respect Putin is in the wrong no matter what one thinks of Zelenski.

  3. The City of Kyiv is 2000 years old, meaning out of the 2000 years Ukraine was occupied/oppressed by Russia for 300 years, so, for 1700 it had it’s SOVEREIGNITY, which one weighs more the 1700 years of Independence or the 300 years of UN-lawful Occupation, I’ll go with the 1700 years of Sovereignity/Independence…….Hang in there Ukraine, I pray for your Freedom from Russia…..

  4. I’m not a big fan of Putin. But at the same time I really don’t care for Zelensky. Wasn’t he one of them who even though not an American, still wanted President Trump impeached? I trust Candace Owens more than Zelensky.

  5. Candace Owen’s comments on President Zelensky’s rulership is absolutely nonsense and has basis whatsoever in what is going on in Ukraine. Her type we should avoid in the United states, who knows, she might be a Russian.

  6. It’s a tough call and a horrible visual for Russia, but one of the major concerns Putin had was Ukraine joining NATO and having them at his door step. Zelensky floated the thought of joining NATO for some time. NATO seemed to hint that they would take Ukraine into the organization, but did they really mean it? If not, why give hints as if they would? Now Zelensky claims that Ukraine WILL NOT join NATO. Was he trying to provoke Russia? If so, why? Did he know that the outcome of his words would end as they did? If so, did he take his country’s population into consideration? Now we learn the CIA has been training Ukrainian soldiers for a while. Let’s see what comes out of this game to maybe understand what happened and why. Just curious questions without taking sides, but feel terrible for the people caught in between. Both Russia and China should be kept in check, particularly China,

    1. Like you’re comment well said , Russia is looking out for there own interest as every country in the world does, much at stake for everyone in the Ukraine , to much propaganda against Putin, no need for Ukraine to join NATO ore the European Union , that conflict was coming a long time ago , let’s deal with China instead. And bring back some industry to this country , to many poor people in America , no one cares about them. But we can free up Billions of Dollars to support other countries
