White Plains, NY —  Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine is an affront to international law, Russia's own international commitments and the basic principle of the sovereignty of the Ukrainian people.

We join all Americans in our support for Ukraine and for the Ukrainian people's right to self-determination and in condemning Russian aggression. We echo calls across Western governments for Russia to immediately cease hostilities and withdraw its forces, and we stand ready to join with President Biden and our leaders in Washington to respond as necessary to Russia's brazen disregard for the Ukrainian people and for global peace, stability and the rule of law. 

Most of all we mourn the needless, senseless loss of life already resulting from this unprovoked, cruel and illegal attack.
