The United States must stand with Ukraine. For as long as it takes.
There is absolutely zero justification for Russian President Vladimir Putin to have invaded Ukraine, and the Biden administration and our allies around the world must make him pay severe and significant consequences for his actions. He CANNOT get away with these atrocities.
We must fully support Ukraine — along with Georgia, the Baltic states and other former “republics” of the Soviet Union who have chosen to seek a free and democratic future — economically, diplomatically, and by providing weapons and sharing our intelligence.
The United States has a vital interest in this illegal invasion because we benefit greatly from a peaceful and secure Europe, we value international commerce, and we have a deep commitment to protecting democracy around the world.
