REP. LORETTA SANCHEZ STATEMENT ON ONGOING SITUATION IN CRIMEA
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement on the ongoing crisis in Crimea.
“The situation in Crimea is complex and rapidly changing. One thing is certain: Russia has violated international law and is walking down a dangerous path.
“I support the current efforts by the Administration, State Department, NATO and the G-7 to find a diplomatic solution to halt President Putin’s reckless behavior. Russia must respect the territorial sovereignty of Ukraine and give the Ukrainian people the opportunity to determine their own future.
“All response options need to remain on the table, but the United States’ should not take any action without the international community.”
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to represent California’s 46th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Anaheim, Santa Ana, and parts of the cities of Garden Grove and Orange in Orange County. She serves as Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces and the second ranked Democrat on the Committee on Homeland Security. Rep.
