Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today regarding reports of Russia’s military crossing into Ukraine:

“Reports that Russia’s military has crossed into Ukraine are deeply concerning. The U.S. cannot accept Russian aggression against a neighbor and United Nations member in blatant violation of international law. Now is the time for U.S. leadership.  The U.S. and the European Union should take meaningful measures to demonstrate to the Russian government that military action against Ukraine is intolerable and will carry significant consequences for Moscow. The revolution in Ukraine has inspired people across the world, including, I believe, the hundreds of thousands of Russians who have taken to the streets in recent years demanding their own freedom. Tyrants like Vladimir Putin may threaten and intimidate, but the clear arc of history favors people’s universal desire to be free.”
