WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after President Biden’s call with Vladimir Putin.
“The Biden administration is failing to act with a sense of urgency to prevent disaster in Ukraine. Before Vladimir Putin can further encroach upon Ukrainian territory, we must kill the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, provide additional lethal assistance to Ukraine in the form of air defenses and anti-ship weapons, and communicate clearly to Putin and to the world the specific steps the United States will take to bring the Russian economy and Putin’s inner circle to its knees. The time for action was months ago, the next-best time for action is right now, and the worst time for action is after an invasion. We need to deny Putin his window of opportunity before it is too late.”
