Rep. Mike Turner Statement on Russian Military Action in Ukraine 

Washington, D.C – Today, Representative Mike Turner (OH-10) made the following statement about the Russian military action in Ukraine:

"As the President has sought secret deals with Russia, abandoned portions of our missile defense system, reduced our nuclear weapons capabilities and significantly cut our military through his sequester, Russia, China, Iran and North Korea see a weak United States.

This is a very dangerous message to send to the world and especially to Russia, who seeks to regain lost territories from the former Soviet Union. 

When the United States is weak, freedom around the world suffers and we are witnessing this first hand today in the Ukraine."
