Statement from CdA Smitham on Russia’s Unjustified Attack on Ukraine

February 24, 2022

We thank Italy for its leadership and strong partnership. President Biden has condemned Russia’s unjustified aggression. PM Draghi and FM Di Maio issued strong condemnations of the unprovoked attack. Russia is violating international law and trampling on Ukraine’s national sovereignty, territorial integrity, and right to make its own decisions. The world will hold Russia accountable.
