Sinema Applauds Congress’s Continued Commitment to Ukraine Ahead of Ukraine President’s Address to Congress

Dec 22, 2022

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement applauding the inclusion of continued assistance to Ukraine in its fight against Putin as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivers his address to Congress.
“Congress continues standing by Ukraine, and I applaud our bipartisan action supporting Ukraine with the funds and resources it needs to defend itself against Russia’s illegal and unprovoked attacks. I join all Americans and Arizonans in welcoming President Zelenskyy to the United States as he delivers his address to Congress.”
Sinema has consistently backed legislation supporting Ukraine. Recently, Sinema increased aid to Ukraine, as well as joining a bipartisan letter supporting Sweden and Finland’s NATO membership bids.
In August, Sinema applauded the Senate’s broad bipartisan vote ratifying Sweden’s and Finland’s membership into NATO. The Senator supported both countries’ NATO membership bids and urged the Biden Administration to support an expedient approval of these two bids.
Russia sanctioned 25 Americans – including Sinema – in response to her strong support for America’s sanctions against Russia for its illegal and unprovoked attacks against Ukraine.
