Roskam Hails Passage of Ukraine Aid and Russian Sanctions Package

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement on final passage of H.R. 4152, which provides aid in support of Ukraine and sanctions for Russia.

"Tonight, Congress sent a strong message to Russia that the United States will enact consequences for their illegal actions in Crimea and punish further aggression against our allies in the region. This measure also provides crucial support to the Ukranian government as leaders work to reform their economic and political structure, putting the corrupt days of Viktor Yanukovych behind them.

"The United States has always been beacon of freedom and democracy; it is our responsibility to stand with the Ukrainian people and the hope of millions to participate in a free society without fear of repression. Now more than ever, America must not shrink from the world's challenges or our role as a global leader."
