Sen. Ossoff Statement on Russian Federation Invasion of Ukraine

Atlanta, Ga. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff today released the following statement:

“Vladimir Putin’s brutal war of aggression against Ukraine has shattered the peace in Europe. Innocent Ukrainians have been and will be killed, maimed, dispossessed, and displaced by the Russian Federation’s military assault, while the world faces the risks of a refugee crisis and broader instability or conflict.

“I expect to be briefed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley at 5 p.m. today along with other members of the Senate on the Administration’s planned economic and diplomatic response as well as steps to reinforce our NATO allies.

“I urge U.S. diplomats, intelligence professionals, and military leaders to sustain the vigilance and diplomacy necessary to avoid unintentional escalation that could imperil global security.

“The NATO alliance is vital and inviolable. Putin’s military aggression requires NATO urgently to revitalize its collective strength while we reaffirm our absolute commitment to mutual defense for every NATO member.”
