Duckworth: Putin’s Ukraine Invasion Threatening Innocent Lives & Global Stability


[WASHINGTON, DC] – Combat Veteran and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a member of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) who served 23 years in the Reserve Forces, issued the following statement after Russia invaded Ukraine:

“Make no mistake: whatever lies Vladimir Putin tells, it is obvious to the world that Russia is the aggressor here and has invaded Ukraine’s sovereign territory. His actions are threatening innocent lives and regional stability in Europe. President Biden and his entire administration have worked exhaustively to coordinate an extensive sanctions regime with our allies and partners to prepare for this, and I urge all countries who value human rights, sovereignty and the rule of law to stand together against Russia’s aggression. I’m glad Germany put a stop to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and I fully support the additional sanctions President Biden announced today for Russia’s malign actions. I will continue doing everything in my power to help protect Americans here at home and abroad.”
