Graham Reflects On President Zelensky's Address To The Senate

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement following Ukrainian President Zelensky’s address to members of the Senate.

“I just attended a presentation by Ukrainian President Zelensky in the old Senate Chamber of the U.S. Capitol.

“President Zelensky profusely thanked the American people for the many contributions we have made in support of Ukraine.  He is determined to liberate his country from the Russian invaders.  President Zelensky also pointed out this fight is much bigger than Ukraine.  He understands that Putin will not stop until someone makes him stop and that appeasing aggression inevitably leads to more war.

“I believe that with continued military assistance, Ukraine will eventually break the Russian occupation.

“Ukraine is the ally we dream of.  They are not seeking American troops.  They seek military and economic assistance to beat a common foe and evict them from their territory.

“When they write the history of these times, President Zelensky’s personal bravery and determination to fight for freedom will be in the first chapter.”
