Senator Jim Inhofe is speaking in support of U. S. action in the Ukraine.  Inhofe said in his statement on the Senate floor that while Russia is committing an act of war by firing rockets and heavy artillery into Ukraine, the Obama Administration continues to sit idly by, assessing a very obvious crisis.

Inhofe continued to say make no mistake, Ukraine and Russia are in a very real and very lethal shooting war.  American assistance is vital to denying Putin's attempts to de-Reaganize Eastern Europe, yet it has been unreliable and embarrassingly slow under the Obama Administration. Inhofe urged President Obama to adhere to the bipartisan consensus that the U.S. should be providing Ukraine with lethal assistance, such as small arms, ammunition and anti-tank weapons, immediately.
