U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), a combat veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, met today with former members of the Parliament of Ukraine to discuss Putin’s ongoing invasion of the country and the need for additional aid from the United States and our NATO allies.
“Putin’s unprovoked, lawless war in Ukraine is causing untold misery as he continues to attack innocent men, women, and children; risk food and energy access for millions across the globe; and test our Western alliances and the entire world order,” said Ernst. “The former members of the Ukrainian Parliament I met with today echoed the sentiments of the many Ukrainians I’ve met with in recent weeks—they are appreciative of the aid the United States has provided thus far, but they need more help, and they need it now. I’ll continue pushing the Biden administration to take more immediate, decisive action to help Ukraine win this war and punish Putin.”
