Below is a statement on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine from Senator Ernst, a combat veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee:


“I first traveled to Ukraine in 1989 as a college student, celebrated when they voted for independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, and served alongside Ukrainians in the Global War on Terror.

“Ukraine wants freedom; the free world must stand with them. My prayers are with the Ukrainian people.”

  1. My prayer is that Ukraine will finally be free of Soros’ NGOs and the DC swamp laundering the taxpayers’ money disguised as foreign aid back into the foundations, institutes and pockets of our politicians.

    Looks like Putin will liberate Ukraine and end the human, drug and arms trafficking that has enriched many of the politically connected in DC.

  2. That’s it. I’m done with Ernst. Ukraine’s government was established by the deep state via a coup in 2014. The neocon warmongers want a war in the worst way, and the US and NATO have violated every agreement made with the Russians ever since 1991.

    No more war! Americans are sick and tired of losing our good people and spending billions, if not trillions, fighting somebody else’s war. Our troops should be on our southern border not in eastern Europe. NATO should have been dissolved ages ago.
