Rep. Crawford’s Statement on Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine 

2/24/2022

Washington  Today, Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-01) issued the following statement in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: 

“Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is despicable, and must be met with strong sanctions, but it is not a surprise. Putin has been very clear about his intentions to create a buffer around Russia with nations he can dominate and keep under his effective control.

Putin’s aggression should also act as a reminder that when tyrants threaten the security of the United States or our allies, we should take them at their word, whether coming from China, Iran, Russia, or elsewhere. That means we need a strong and focused military, a vibrant economy, and energy independence, to protect our national interests.”
