Second delegation of U.S. congressmen reaffirms bipartisan unity in support of Ukraine

In the U.S. Congress, there is unwavering bipartisan support for Ukraine's territorial integrity against the background of the aggressive policy pursued by the Russian Federation and the threats it poses.

This was stated by Congressman Mark Green, who heads the Republican part of the bipartisan delegation of the U.S. House of Representatives that arrived on a visit to Kyiv, Ukrinform reports.

"The Republicans that I lead in this (bipartisan - ed.) delegation stand firmly with our colleagues across the aisle, completely united in our support for Ukraine, for a peaceful resolution of the crisis," the congressman said.

Asked by an Ukrinform correspondent whether such a bipartisan unity could be threatened by narratives spread among the Republican base, questioning the need for U.S. support for Ukraine in its standoff with Russia, Mark Green reaffirmed the united bipartisan stance of the U.S. Congress on the need to counter the Russian threat.

"I am speaking on behalf of those present here and, I am sure, many other Republicans. When someone pushes troops to the borders of a NATO member, to Belarus, it changes the schedule. We are talking about another level in general (threats - ed.). We have obligations to these countries under Article 5 (UN Charter - ed.). And we will not ignore it. "

Addressing Vladimir Putin, Mark Green stressed: "Mr. Putin, you have united NATO, you have united the European Union, and all, many people across the globe, and you have united the United States Congress - Democrats and Republicans are here together in a bipartisan fashion to show solidarity."

As Ukrinform reported, on January 17, a delegation of the U.S. Congress with Republican senators Rob Portman, Kevin Kramer, Roger Wicker, and Democratic senators Chris Murphy, Jeanne Shaheen, Amy Klobuchar and Richard Blumenthal onboard visited Kyiv.
