"We Will Stand Up for the Ukrainians"

According to the article of Voice of America, in recent days, clear statements in support of Ukraine in the US Congress have been made by both Republicans and Democrats. Democrat Mark Warner, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that Vladimir Putin's aggressive rhetoric and actions threatened peace and stability in Europe and in the world.

In his statement, he called on the White House to take decisive action. “The Biden administration must work with its allies to demonstrate to Putin that further action to destabilize Europe’s security will have the devastating consequences for Russia’s economy and its further isolation from the civilized world,” Warner said in the statement.

Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, co-Chair of Ukraine’s Support Group in Congress, who is also a member of the Intelligence Committee of the House of Representatives, agrees. Members of this committee receive regular reports from US intelligence and are acquainted with the situation.

In his view, the White House should fulfill the obligations towards Kyiv and do everything possible to help Ukraine if necessary.

"Ukraine is an independent state and must remain so. We must do more than just say this - we must back it up with actions, including sending our troops, equipment, and sending an unequivocal and uncompromising message to Vladimir Putin that the United States will stand up for our friends in Ukraine. This is the only language that Putin understands. Politeness doesn't work here," Brian Fitzpatrick said.
