Just back from his Congressional trip to the border of Ukraine and Poland this weekend, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA11) says he was “struck with how many children there were and how cold it was…they’re outside, many of them had no gloves, no hat…I was really concerned about their body temperature.” Rep. Connolly added:

  • “…the Polish government and…volunteers are doing a great job of trying to make sure their needs are met and transporting them as quickly as possible to a heated shelter…”
  • “The Poles are stepping up and volunteering to open their homes to these refugees in unprecedented numbers.”
  • The bipartisan delegation “all had the same reaction, that we’ve got to step up our humanitarian assistance – and we are – but we also have to provide the Ukrainians with the equipment they need to take this fight to the Russians and to raise the cost to Russia of this reckless, malignant act.”
  • On a “no-fly zone,” Rep. Connolly said “we have to be very careful about not getting into direct conflict with Russia; nobody’s interest is served if that happens.”
