Rep. Peters on Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine
February 28, 2022
Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:
“The evolving situation in Ukraine is heartbreaking and outrageous. Putin’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine challenges the very principles our country stands for: respect for national sovereignty, the legitimacy of self-governance, and the resolution of grievances through a rules-based global order. This unnecessary war of choice is devastating for Ukraine and blatantly violates international law.
“I stand by President Biden’s recent actions to invoke tough sanctions against Russia, in concert with our NATO allies and like-minded partners across the globe. As Americans and those around the world hold Ukraine in our hearts in the days and weeks to come, we commit to work with our allies and partners to aid the Ukrainians on the frontlines, halt further Russian aggression and preserve Ukraine’s right to a future of democracy and self-determination.”
