Durbin Applauds President Biden's Emergency Supplemental Request To Support Ukraine

SPRINGFIELD – U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Co-Chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, today released the following statement on President Biden’s emergency supplemental request, which includes funds to continue supporting Ukraine:

“Nearly 18 months after Putin began his full-scale invasion, Ukraine remains on the frontlines of democracy.  And as I saw recently in Vilnius, during this year’s NATO summit, the Ukrainian people’s heroism continues to rally the western alliance.  The United States and the nations of the free world must continue to provide the resources, equipment, and training necessary for our Ukrainian friends to prevail against Putin and his cowardly enablers.  I applaud the Biden Administration’s proposal to aid Ukraine and will work in the Senate to ensure we appropriate these necessary funds.”
