Will Meet with Members of Connecticut’s Ukrainian Community On Sunday


WASHINGTON, DC—Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) released the following statement today announcing her support for legislation that would make Ukraine eligible for United States loan guarantees. The bill is scheduled for a vote this afternoon. On Sunday, DeLauro will meet with members of Connecticut’s Ukrainian community from noon-1:00 p.m. at St. Michael’s Ukrainian Church on George Street in New Haven.


“The Ukrainian people have the right to choose their own future free of intimidation and fear. I strongly support this bipartisan legislation to allow the Administration to provide loan guarantees to Ukraine as part of an international effort to support the Ukrainian people during this crisis. My thoughts and prayers remain with the people of Ukraine who have endured so much and deserve to pursue their democratic aspirations. I am pleased that Congress is coming together to support the Ukrainian people and stand against Russian advances and intimidation. I look forward to meeting with members of Connecticut’s Ukrainian community and hearing their thoughts this Sunday.”
