Graham Statement Following Trip To Ukraine

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement following his trip to Ukraine.

“Just finished a great visit with President Zelensky, Kyiv Mayor Klitschko, and Ukrainian defense officials. I have never been more optimistic about the ability of the Ukrainians to go on the offense and take back their territory from the Russians.

“President Zelensky and his team have done an incredible job fighting for not only Ukraine’s freedom, but for the idea of freedom itself.

“On this trip, it is clear to me that the Russians have been bloodied and weakened. We must provide cluster munitions and additional long range artillery to make the counteroffensive a success. While there are no magic weapons, the right weapons in the hands of determined Ukrainian people creates magic on the battlefield.

“Victory for Ukraine.”
