Former Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov questions whether the U.S. wants Ukraine to win the war, or ‘merely’ help them survive.
Human Rights Foundation chairman and former Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov predicted the "end of Putin" on "Cavuto: Coast to Coast" Wednesday, arguing the United States and its allies must uphold sanctions against Russia until Ukraine and Crimea territories have been recovered.
"I think America has to declare that its sanctions will not be removed, will not be eased, until Ukrainian territorial integrity has been restored," Kasparov told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto.
"These sanctions must not go until the Ukrainian flag is raised in Crimea," he continued. "That’s key."
Kasparov’s comments come after Russian officials said Tuesday it would ease airstrikes in Ukraine and announced Wednesday that negotiation talks were unsuccessful. The former grandmaster remained skeptical of Russia’s intentions.
