Duckworth Reaction to Reports of Russian Missiles Killing Two in Poland


[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — 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 news broke that Russian missiles killed at least two people in Poland, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO):

“If confirmed, reports that Russian missiles hit Poland and killed at least 2 people are extremely troubling. My heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire Polish community in Illinois and across the world. Vladimir Putin must be held accountable for his ongoing aggression in Ukraine, as his actions continue to take innocent lives. At this hour, my focus is on ensuring we know all the facts and that our nation does everything we can to immediately coordinate with Poland to determine how we can support our NATO ally.”
