Congressman Tony Gonzales Statement on President Zelenskyy’s Address to Congress
I released the following statement on Wednesday after attending a virtual address from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Congress:
“Congress witnessed an incredibly powerful address from President Zelenskyy today. The aid he is asking for is the difference between life and death for the Ukrainian people. I believe the most powerful actions the United States can take are continued economic sanctions and implementation of a no-fly zone over Western Ukraine to support a humanitarian corridor. The United States and Congress will be pivotal in turning the tide of this war and we must move forward with unwavering support for Ukraine.”
I visited Ukraine in August, meeting with local officials and veteran groups. I served two decades in the U.S. Navy as a cryptologist.
