Congress must continue supporting Ukraine in its courageous battle against Russian aggression.
Let me be clear: The world is watching how we respond to this critical moment.
Our support for Ukraine goes far beyond assisting a single nation.
It’s about upholding the principles of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law that underpin the Western world.
Let’s dispel another myth: Our European allies are standing shoulder to shoulder with us and the people of Ukraine.
We are less than half of military aid to Ukraine, according to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.
In fact, our partners have given more than the United States.
They have given nearly $50 billion in military aid since Russia’s unjustified invasion, while the U.S. has given roughly $42 billion.
The threat is on their doorstep, and they are taking it seriously.
When we talk about support for Ukraine, it’s not just about dollars and cents; it’s about our shared values.
If Putin continues unchecked, he will not stop at Ukraine.
Authoritarianism cannot win.
