Congressman Lucas’ Statement on Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine

Cheyenne, OK – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:

“Russia’s premeditated invasion of Ukraine is reckless and a flagrant violation of international law, as well as Ukraine’s sovereignty. For decades, Vladimir Putin has violated the rights and freedoms of sovereign bordering neighbors, attempting to rewrite history and upend the balance of power in Europe. Now, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine lays bare for the world to witness the evil of an irresponsible and dangerous dictator- one who alone will be responsible for the death and destruction that this invasion will bring.

“Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine marks a historic shift in how the world should regard and engage with Moscow and the Kremlin. The United States and our Allies across the globe must remain committed to enacting swift, strong, and painful sanctions, ensuring Putin is held accountable and Russia’s ability to make war is short-lived.

“In these dark and unfathomable times, my prayers and the prayers from across the United States are with the people of Ukraine. The United States and freedom loving people from across the world stand with them.”
