Thanks to Russia, the situation in Ukraine is said to be getting worse, and rapper Cardi B has offered her thoughts on the crisis.

The Hill reported that Jonathan Finer, White House principal deputy national security adviser, said Tuesday that Russia’s move to send soldiers to Ukraine's two breakaway regions represented the "beginning of an invasion of the country."

As invasion news continues to emerge, Cardi B, who has 21.8 million followers on Twitter, was asked what she "thinks about the whole Russia thing." In response to the fan question about Russia, she tweeted that she wishes these "world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis." According to her, invasions, war and sanctions should be the "last thing these leaders should worry about."

In a video, the "Starships" hitmaker told fans that she wants to say a lot of things but she is just going to mind her business because sometimes she feels like she has such a big platform that if "I don't say the right things I might get killed."

She said that she is "really not on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) side, I'm not on Russia's side, I'm actually on the citizens side because at the end of the day the world is having a crisis right now." She shared that there is inflation not only in the US, but across the globe, and that it's "really hard to get the economy back up."

In the past also, the rapper has commented on politics, reported Daily Mail. In 2020, she got into an online war of words with Candace Owens after the conservative commentator called the artist "illiterate" and an "embarrassment" to black people.

It all began when Owens shared a video of her appearance on "The Ben Shapiro Show," in which she slammed Joe Biden for taking part in an interview with Cardi. This happened before Biden became the US President. Owens said that it was "one of the biggest insults" to black voters that Biden decided to do the interview with an "illiterate rapper" rather than someone who could ask the "tough questions."

Cardi then hit back at Owens in a video in which she insisted Biden decided to do the interview with her because of her wide-ranging influence. Cardi said during the video that it's not a secret "I use my platform to encourage people to vote." She shared that she has millions of followers on social media, and that she pays millions in taxes. She said that she can make "millions of people go out and vote." In 2020, she even said that she wanted to go into politics.
