TRIBUNNEWS.COM, PHiLADELPHIA – United States (US) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed her concern regarding the situation in Ukraine, during her remarks at the House of Representatives Democratic retreat in Philadelphia.

But instead he mispronounced the name of the country he was concerned about and the name of its president.

Quoted from the page Sputnik News, Sunday (13/3/2022), Pelosi’s statement actually refers to the slogan ‘Slava Ukraini’ or ‘Glory to Ukraine’, which she pronounces in a way that sounds like ‘Slava Ukrony’.

He later revealed that he had spoken to the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, but in the case of Pelosi, there was a change in the name he gave.

“I spent about 50 minutes with President ‘Kerensky’ the day before we came here,” Pelosi said.

Other parts of his speech also caught the attention of some netizens.

Pelosi’s general way of speaking led many of them to think that she had ‘had too much vodka’ before giving her speech.

In addition, Pelosi followed in the footsteps of US President Joe Biden and blamed inflation and skyrocketing gas prices on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It also did not go unnoticed by critics.

“Gas prices skyrocketed before the invasion of Ukraine,” said one netizen.

Previously, Biden had said several times that the record high inflation in the US was “mostly Putin’s fault”.
