Kaine Statement on Two Year Anniversary of Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:

“Two years ago today, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. In the face of Russia’s horrific assault on a sovereign nation, the Ukrainian people have shown incredible resilience. Democracies around the world have linked arms, and NATO is stronger than ever before. Sadly, there are some in Congress who want to withdraw U.S. support for Ukraine at a time when it is most desperately needed. History has shown us the consequences of what happens when we abandon our friends and show weakness to our adversaries – whether it’s Russia and Putin today or China and Xi Jinping tomorrow. I’m proud the Senate passed a bipartisan package to provide critical aid to Ukraine. The House of Representatives must pass this bill as soon as possible.”
