U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), a combat veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is backing a bipartisan bill to help provide the Ukrainian military the equipment they need to defend their country from Russia’s unjust, unprovoked invasion.

“To the surprise of Vladimir Putin, and much of the rest of the world, Ukrainians have fought back valiantly against Russia’s unjust and unprovoked invasion. On the ground in Poland last week, I heard the same message from Ukrainian refugees and Ukrainian civil society leaders—they can win this fight if we help them win this fight, but they need more lethal aid now,” said Senator Ernst. “Defending freedom in Ukraine is defending freedom everywhere, and this bipartisan legislation will help the United States provide the Ukrainians with the weapons needed to defeat Putin and his cronies and protect their citizens.”
