Relevant Statements

  • “I had the opportunity a couple months ago to meet with President Zelensky in Kyiv, and to meet with our troops, who are training and who are assisting in planning. And I’m incredibly optimistic.”

  • “It was great to be with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy again to discuss the United States’ unwavering commitment to standing against authoritarianism.”

  • “It is absolutely true we see, directly coming from Russia, attempts to mask communications that are anti-Ukraine and pro-Russia messages, some of which we even hear being uttered on the House floor…. There are members of Congress today who still incorrectly say that this conflict between Russia and Ukraine is over NATO, which of course it is not. Vladimir Putin having made it very clear, both publicly and to his own population, that his view is that this is a conflict of a much broader claim of Russia to Eastern Europe, including claiming all of Ukraine territory as Russia’s. To the extent that this propaganda takes hold, it makes it more difficult for us to really see this as an authoritarian versus democracy battle.”
