Suozzi Statement on the Situation in Ukraine
“Politics and partisanship must stop at the water’s edge. Democrats and Republicans must have a united front against Putin’s lying, ruthless manipulation, and his violent murder of Ukrainian people.
Heavy sanctions against Putin and his cronies, an embargo of Russian oil, and aid to Ukraine are all things we agree upon.
Whether or not to close a United Nations mission should be negotiated with the State Department and we should seek a bipartisan consensus.
We as New Yorkers must seek assistance from the Wall Street community to determine the most effective way to crush Russia economically. As Governor, I would call all Wall Street and banking leaders together to seek a concerted action plan.”
