GIDDY UP-DATE NEWSLETTER: We can’t let Putin win

May 20, 2022

Hey folks,    

Over the last few months, we’ve seen enormous devastation caused by Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. And while the Ukrainian people have fought bravely to defend their country, families and cities continue to be destroyed by this senseless war. In Washington, we’re doing everything we can to help Ukraine prevail.     Yesterday the Senate approved a $40 billion relief package that will send more weapons and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. We’ve enacted crippling sanctions against Russia and revoked its favored trade status. And we established a program that allows Americans to sponsor Ukrainian refugees displaced by this invasion.

Colorado is home to thousands of Ukrainian-Americans. We stand with them and must send a strong message to Russia and its allies that the United States is committed to defending freedom and democracy.      

We will never stop fighting for Ukraine’s independence. Be sure to follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram for more updates.    

Thanks for reading,   

    Senator John Hickenlooper
