McMorris Rodgers Statement Following President Zelenskyy’s Address to Congress

Washington, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed members of Congress today.

“President Zelenskyy gave a powerful appeal for stronger American leadership. The video of Putin’s attacks against innocent lives broke my heart and the hearts of all who saw it. President Zelenskyy called on us to do more—more sanctions, more security assistance, and more defense equipment. We can and should do more to help the people of Ukraine in their fight to self-determination and independence. Glory to Ukraine!

“Expanding America’s energy dominance in oil and natural gas must also be top priority. Using our energy resources is one of the strongest actions we can take to help our allies fight back and end Putin’s ability to use energy to fund his war. 

“We must say ‘yes’ to bolstering our energy security. It’s how we strengthen our geopolitical power and help President Zelenskyy win this war.”
