Warren Statement on Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine

Washington, D.C. — United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:

“The American people stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and their pursuit of democracy and freedom. Vladimir Putin bears full responsibility for Russia’s unjustifiable war against Ukraine. This Russian invasion will cause immense human suffering, including the potential for mass casualties and people displaced from their homes as refugees. Together with our NATO allies and international partners, I support President Biden imposing significant sanctions on Russia’s economy, military, and its corrupt oligarchs as a severe consequence for this unprovoked act of aggression. The United States will continue leveraging all of our diplomatic, political, and economic tools to bring an end to this unprovoked attack and hold the Kremlin to account.”
