Biden Must Demonstrate US Strength in Face of Russian Aggression
I released a statement following reports that Russia is planning a multi-front invasion of Ukraine in early 2022:
Vladimir Putin is defying international laws and norms and bullying his neighbors through coercion and use of force. His actions have led Russia to violate the territorial sovereignty of its neighbors, weaponize energy, and engage in malign activities that undermine and threaten transatlantic security and cohesion.
Putin is testing American resolve, and our allies and partners around the world are watching. It is imperative that the Biden Administration take strong and decisive action to deter Russia through a devastating and broad sanctions package. They must also expeditiously provide lethal assistance to Ukraine. It must be without a doubt that devastating costs will be imposed should Russia violate the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
