Congressman Brendan Boyle Urges President Obama to Visit Ukraine
Congressman Brendan F. Boyle and the Ukraine Caucus Co-Chairs, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Congressman Sander Levin and Congressman Michael Fitzpatrick led a letter to President Obama urging him to visit Ukraine prior to the end of his term. Fifteen members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined in on signing the letter in support. This bipartisan effort underscores that a visit by President Obama to Ukraine would highlight and enhance the strategic partnership between the two countries, as well as enhance the strong cooperation needed to implement reforms in Ukraine.
“During President Obama’s term, the Ukrainian people have endured tumultuous times from the Maidan Revolution, the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the invasion of Eastern Ukraine,” said Congressman Boyle. “A visit by President Obama would represent an important symbol that the United States continues to stand with the people of Ukraine and lead the international community in support for the peace, security and freedom that they deserve.”
This letter expresses the commitment of the Congress to work with President Obama on continued support for Ukraine.
