Bush, speaking in Dallas Wednesday night, said he meant to refer to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“In contrast, Russian elections are rigged,” Bush said. “Political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated from participating in the electoral process. The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean of Ukraine.”
He jokingly referred to his age, 75, as the audience laughed.
