Floor Speech

Mr. COHEN. Madam Speaker, as a member, co-chairman of the Helsinki Commission, I want to compliment Mr. Cardin and Mr. Wicker and their work on this bill, bipartisan, from the Senate.

What Russia has done with Ukraine is immoral. It is illegal. It is against the word, the acts, the intentions of every godly character ever. God would not have approved. WWJD?

What Russia has done deserves the entire condemnation of the world; and everything we can do to condemn them and put them out of organized civilized society is appropriate because they are not acting as a civilized member of society.

I support this bill. I think there is not too much we can do to Russia. There is not too much that they have done to Ukraine and continue to do in killing children, and disabled, and orphans. They deserve all of the might of the United States that we can put on them and take away from them. We need to punish them with all we have. I support the bill entirely.

Glory to Ukraine.
