The former Democrat nominee for the White House voiced support for expanding Nato to include the ex-Soviet state

Vladimir Putin has been gleefully mocked by ex-First Lady Hillary Clinton as Russia’s war in Ukraine sluggishly continues.

Clinton, 75, who lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential Election, also claimed the Russian leader brought Nato’s potential expansion on himself by invading the ex-Soviet state.

She said: “Defending democracy in Ukraine, expanding Nato – just as an aside, too bad Vladimir, you brought it on yourself.”

Clinton was addressing an audience at the State Department to unveil her official portrait in the Benjamin Franklin State Dining room.

The 75-year-old added: “We always said, ‘people are not forced to join Nato. People choose and want to join Nato'.”

Clinton also could not resist taking several swipes at her 2016 rival.

Trump, who will likely win the Republican Party nomination and contest his third successive election, was accused of potentially watering down support for Ukraine if he replaced Joe Biden in the Oval Office.

“People might have doubted that because we had burned so many bridges with our allies and our friends,” she said.

“Reinstating a foreign policy... that actually brings people to us, not pushes them away, would have been thought to be extremely difficult. And indeed it was, but it was accomplished.”

The 45th President has used the war in Ukraine to berate the Biden administration’s foreign policy agenda.

Trump also claimed he would end Putin’s illegal invasion within 24 hours.

He told Fox News: “I know Zelensky very well, and I know Putin very well, even better.

“And I had a good relationship, very good, with both of them.

“I would tell Zelensky: No more. You got to make a deal.

“I would tell Putin: If you don’t make a deal, we’re going to give them a lot.

“We’re going to give them more than they ever got, if we have to.

“I will have the deal done in one day, one day.”

Trump's comments sparked concern among Grand Old Party lawmakers who have spent recent months voicing concern about the among of money sent from Washington to Kyiv.
