Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-01) made the following statement today regarding the Russian war on Ukraine.

"Russia presides over the United Nations Security Council while launching a premeditated war in Europe, stripping away any semblance of civilized, sane, orderly process for resolving conflict. How easy it is to create death and destruction in our so-called enlightened time. Putin is unhinged. Ukraine must fight. Europe must awaken. Russia just violated all charters, raised a new Iron Curtain, and stripped itself from any pretense of UN leadership," Fortenberry said.
