BROOKLYN, NY – Today, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08), a member of House Democratic leadership and the bipartisan Congressional Ukraine Caucus, issued the following statement:
“An attack on any democracy is an attack on every democracy. Vladimir Putin chose to launch a premeditated war, and is responsible for the pain, suffering and death that will result.
Led by President Biden, the United States and the international community will stand strongly behind Ukraine and ensure that Russia is held accountable for this egregious act of aggression.
My prayers are with the Ukrainian people. May God protect and watch over them during this difficult hour.”
