May God bless them and keep them safe.
The United States must do all we can to repel Putin's invasion.
Praying for the millions of Ukrainians who are facing Putin's unprovoked aggression & this existential threat.— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) February 24, 2022
Ukraine has America's steadfast support & we will continue to arm them so they can defend their country. Those involved in this should know they'll be held accountable.
HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR TEXANS IN UKRAINE https://t.co/liA1384lwz— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) February 24, 2022
We have a responsibility to support the Ukrainian people as they fight to defend their sovereignty.— Senator John Cornyn (@JohnCornyn) February 24, 2022
If we fail to support Ukraine, other authoritarian movements like China and Iran will take note.
As the U.S. rebounds from the pandemic and confronts challenges to our own democracy, some have called on us to turn our backs on Ukraine or even – alarmingly – side with Russia.— Joaquin Castro (@JoaquinCastrotx) February 24, 2022

Ukraine is full of innocent people. Many of them will die.
