Press Release, Congressman Chris Jacobs

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) released the following statement after Ukrainian President Zelenskyy delivered a speech to a joint session of Congress.

“The continued Russian assault on the sovereign nation of Ukraine is reprehensible,” Jacobs said. “I commend President Zelenskyy for his strength and poise in the face of this assault on his country. Last week Congress approved additional aid – we must expedite its delivery and not delay any new economic action.

“We must continue to provide humanitarian assistance and military equipment, including MiGs and other air defense systems, to restore peace, end the Russian invasion, and hold Vladimir Putin accountable for the war crimes being committed in Ukraine.”
