The group includes Republicans from the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees.

Three of those members — Senators Kevin Cramer, Roger Wicker and Rob Portman — were part of a bipartisan congressional delegation that met with Ukrainian officials this week to bolster U.S. support for Ukraine and its defensive needs.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, who was also on the trip, told reporters on Monday after lawmakers met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that the United States was prepared to both impose economic sanctions on Russia and provide aid. additional weapons to Ukraine.

Senate Democrats and Republicans have each introduced legislation to provide such support for Ukraine.
