U.S. lawmakers of all political persuasions are lashing out at Vladimir Putin‘s decision to ignore warnings from the West and move forward with a full-scale invasion of Ukraine overnight.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy called the Russian president’s decision an ‘evil, panicked move of weakness and will be his defining mistake.’

 

Politicians also warned Moscow that Ukraine will defend their sovereignty, with Murphy tweeting that ‘the Ukrainian people will fight for as long as it takes’ and Republican Senator Marco Rubio saying Ukraine ‘will NEVER accept being ruled by Putin’ and claiming ‘men, women, children, the elderly’ will ‘maim & kill alot (sic) of Russians.’

Russia launched an all-out war on Ukraine Wednesday night into Thursday morning, with simultaneous attacks coming from south, east and north, by land and by air. Missiles and bombs rained from the sky, tanks rolled across the border, helicopters buzzed in and explosions were seen across the country after Putin gave the order to attack. 

Michigan Republican Representative Peter Meijer said the ‘tepid’ response from the West ’emboldened’ Putin to go forward with a full-scale invasion, claiming Washington and NATO’s threat for sanctions was ‘positive proof’ that Moscow did not see this as real resistance. He also called for ‘crippling sanctions’.

‘He was willing to call the west’s bluff,’ Meijer told Fox & Friends on Thursday morning of Putin.

‘Now is the time we have to be strong, united and unleash crippling economic and sanctions costs on Russia. We can no longer afford to be tepid or weak-willed here.’

Republican Representative Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin said that Putin is a ‘KGB thug who understands no language except force,’ while slamming the U.S. and western response so far.
