Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Co-Chair of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus, released the following statement on President Biden’s announcement of an additional $60 million in security assistance, and $45 million in humanitarian assistance for Ukraine.

"The pursuit of a secure, prosperous, and sovereign Ukraine enjoys bipartisan, determined support from the United States Congress. While the complex mission of addressing corruption, bolstering democratic protections, and establishing energy independence faces myriad challenges, the announcement of additional security and humanitarian assistance demonstrates President Biden's commitment to strengthening the United States relationship with one of our closest allies and friends. We welcome this news, and look forward to partnering with President Zelenskyy to achieve Ukraine's accession to the European Union and NATO, and bring it into alliance with the democratic republics of the free world."
