Cardi B is weighing in on the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

The 29-year-old rapper doesn’t think world leaders should be focused on war, sanction or invasions, according to tweets shared by Cardi B on Tuesday.  

She also revealed she’s not on “NATO’s side” or Russia’s.

“I actually want to say a lot of things, but I’m just gonna mind my business because sometimes I feel like I have such a big platform that if I don’t say the right things, I might get killed,” Cardi B began a video shared to Twitter.

“I’m really not on NATO’s side,” she continued. “I’m really not [on] Russia’s side. I’m actually in the citizens’ side, because at the end of the day, the world is having a crisis right now.”

Cardi B gave her opinions regarding the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis on social media.

Cardi B’s video explaining her view on the Russia-Ukraine crisis comes after a social media user asked her what she thought about the situation.

“Wish these world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis,” Cardi B originally responded. “War, sanctions, invasions should be the last thing these leaders should worry about.”

The White House began calling Russian action in Ukraine an “invasion” on Tuesday, saying the “swift and severe” sanctions promised by the U.S. are on the way, Fox News has learned.

Russian troops arrived in eastern Ukraine hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he would recognize the independence of two separatist regions, officials said.
