North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum calls for "accountability on every dollar" sent to Ukraine

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum was asked about what his approach to the war in Ukraine would be if elected President. 

"Relative to the Ukraine, I think that folks are right to be concerned that we got to make sure that we got accountability on every dollar that we spend. Essentially we are in a proxy war with Russia. We're doing everything but sending our own troops over there, but yeah we're in a battle, and one thing I'd say for sure we've to make sure this isn't a win for Putin," said Burgum. 

Burgum also expressed concerns with Russian President Vladimir Putin having a potential interest in territorial gains elsewhere in eastern Europe. 

Burgum made the comments while appearing Friday on the Jay Thomas Show.
