(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Glenn Grothman (WI-06) released the following statement on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:
“As were many Americans, I was horrified, but not shocked, by the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” said Grothman. “I am afraid American weakness over the past year was a contributing factor. The combination of open borders, an assault on the American energy industry, the failure to execute the Afghanistan withdrawal, debasing our currency, and inability to articulate American greatness all contribute to the lack of respect for Western ideals.
“When I think of Russia and Ukraine, I cannot help but think of the Holodomor. I cannot understand why the American media does not talk about the starvation of around 4 million Ukrainians by the Russian-led Soviet Union.
“I will receive a briefing this evening and learn more about the crisis and am praying for the people of Ukraine.”
