State Senator Ryan Fazio noted the “bravery and patriotism” of the Ukrainian people. “Men and women both too old and too young to fight… take up arms in defense of their country. Fathers tearfully say goodbye to their children who flee the country.”

He then gave witness to Ukrainian history.

“This year will mark the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor, where the Soviet Union under Stalin starved millions of Ukrainians to death during agricultural collectivization. Their country didn’t ever gain independence until 1991. Yet, the Ukrainian people show perseverance despite the historical crimes faced by their ancestors.”
