SFRC Chairman Menendez Statement on Russia’s Attack on Ukraine

U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tonight issued the following statement in reaction to Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine:

“Tonight, my heart is heavy for the people of Ukraine. As we pray for them in this dark moment of uncertainty, it is clear that history will prove Vladimir Putin’s decision to sacrifice the lives of countless Ukrainians and Russians was made out of fear—fear of allowing a neighboring independent, sovereign nation to pursue democracy and freedom.

“This unprovoked attack has brought into sharp focus the need to expel the current Kremlin leadership from the international community. Today must mark a historical shift in how the world views and deals with the despot in Moscow.

“The United States and our allies have successfully galvanized an international coalition to counter Russian aggression; now we must refuse to stand by and watch innocent Ukrainian men, women, and children suffer. As Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I am committed to ensuring that the United States upholds our responsibility to exact maximum costs on Putin, the Russian economy, and those who enabled and facilitated this trampling of Ukraine’s sovereignty.

“Ukrainians are a resilient, determined people. We know that they will stand up for their country and their freedom. And we will continue to stand with them. But tonight, our prayers are with an entire nation, young and old, who refuse to let a tyrant use military might to impose his will on Ukraine.”

  1. We can now blame on Democrats party who didn’t do anything when Putin warned and Democrats wasted so much time. Now it time for a change vote for Republicans and let end Liberals power.
    I am angry with Liberals hiding the truth with Joe Biden. He is no longer good president.

  2. You need to get facts straight.Putin is a very bad man..This was put together long before Biden went in. This takes months…..At least no one is storming the Capital building this year…A disgrace…It will be American soldiers that will get hurt helping not you. You can sit home and complain about democrats…

  3. This the truth Mentalindez refuses to say…. self serving partner in crime with Spartacus.

    “Ukrainians have corrupt tyrannical leaders…. who do not refuse to let a tyrant use money might to impose his will on Ukraine.” Like the Biden crime family and the multi-million dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation? How about Kerry, Pelosi and the other Demoklepto kids?
