RJC Statement on the Russian Invasion of Ukraine

Washington, DC –– The Republican Jewish Coalition strongly condemns the unprovoked Russian military attack against Ukraine. With this terrible move to war, Vladimir Putin aims to destroy the nascent democracy in Ukraine, to threaten the former Soviet republics in eastern Europe, and to weaken the NATO alliance.

The free world must stand up to this violent expansionism now, and the US must lead that effort from a position of strength and in solidarity with our allies.

We call on the Biden administration to accelerate the implementation of punishing sanctions on Russia and its leaders and call on Congress to pass legislation to broaden sanctions authority.
