Washington, D.C. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX), House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-AL), and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH) released the following statement ahead of the one year anniversary of Russia’s renewed invasion of Ukraine.

“Putin’s unprovoked, full-scale invasion of Ukraine has lasted a year too long. The people of Ukraine have shown unmatched strength and courage, and with the aid of western weaponry, they have decimated Russia’s war machine. In supporting Ukraine’s fight, House Republicans have also continued to conduct robust oversight of U.S. assistance – protecting the American taxpayer while ensuring these weapons continue to make an impact on the battlefield.

“The gruesome Russian war crimes and atrocities must end. President Biden needs to stop dragging his feet on providing the lethal aid necessary to end this war. Continued half-measures by the Biden administration will only drive up the cost of this war in lives and dollars.”
