There is no other way to help Ukraine: Sullivan addressed Congress

Feb 21, 2024

National Security Advisor to the President of the United States Jake Sullivan has asked Congress to provide funding for Ukraine.

This is reported with reference to the White House.


Sullivan told Congressional representatives that they must fulfill their constitutional obligations and help protect Ukraine's freedom and independence.

"It’s not like we have a piggy bank where we just keep cash lying around that we can provide to Ukraine.  We need the Congress to discharge its constitutional obligation to appropriate and obligate funds that the President can then put to use to send American-made weapons, made by American workers and American states, to Ukraine to help defend the freedom and independence of that country," Sullivan said.

The situation, according to Sullivan, is without alternative and therefore Congress must fulfill this obligation in favor of American security.

"There’s not another avenue to it that — and because of that, I think the Congress, and especially the Speaker, need to stare their responsibility square in the face and then meet that responsibility, meet that obligation to their voters and to the American people and to the American national security interest," Sullivan said.
