WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-13) released the following statement regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine:

“The invasion of Ukraine is an unjustifiable violation of international law, and we need an immediate diplomatic solution that ends hostilities and protects innocent lives. We must be laser focused on protecting the millions of innocent lives in Ukraine that are now under unconscionable threat from Putin’s violent aggression. Sanctions should target Russian leaders and oligarchs, not civilians, as we seek to end this horrible war without further bloodshed, and the US should also be prepared to assist with protecting and sheltering refugees. 

“My hope is that we begin moving towards a more peaceful, less militarized world. That belief is stronger than ever knowing that countless everyday people from Detroit to Kiev to Moscow share in our dream of a peaceful world free of violence and war. My team and I are closely following this crisis as it develops and will continue to put the mission of peace at the center of our efforts.”
