In Support Of The Ukraine, Azerbaijan, And Georgia April 10, 2014
Filemon Vela, D-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to condemn the actions of Russia in the Crimean Peninsula. Now is the time for the United States to show our solidarity with former Soviet states such as Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Georgia, while encouraging these nations to continue to institute democratic reforms and modernize their economies. Countries in the Caucus region such as Azerbaijan and Georgia are located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe—a strategic location for U.S. foreign policy objectives given that Russia is to the north and Iran is to the south. With the volatility and strategic importance of this region, the U.S. must continue to work with its allies such as Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Georgia to ensure their sovereignty is protected, especially in light of Russia’s actions in the Crimean Peninsula. Mr. Speaker, I thank you for the opportunity to recognize the importance of our country’s relationship with Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Georgia."
