Sen. Chris Murphy and Congressman Jim Himes responded after Russia began its attack on Ukraine.
Murphy released a statement saying in part, "Putin's decision to invade is an evil, panicked move of weakness and will be his defining mistake. The Ukrainian people will fight for as long as it takes to secure their nation from this foreign tyrant, and the United States will stand with them in this fight."
Congressman Himes also released a statement saying last night, "Praying for the people of Ukraine tonight. The world must now show that Putin's evil will never be accepted. The Russian people must now realize who governs in their name. And Americans must now look hard at who was on the wrong side of all this."
