Blumenthal Applauds Senate Approval of Supplemental Aid for Ukraine

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after the Senate voted to approve a supplemental aid package for Ukraine:

“Ukraine’s freedom fighters remain under siege and in great need of the resources this bill will provide. This vital assistance will provide even more artillery, armored vehicles, anti-armor systems, and anti-air capabilities that have been used so effectively on the battlefield by the Ukrainian warriors. This package also includes urgent economic and humanitarian relief to assist the millions of Ukrainians suffering from Putin’s brutal war. I am proud of the Senate’s overwhelming, bipartisan vote in support of our friends and allies in Ukraine. This fight is not cheap, but caving to Putin’s aggression would be more costly.”
