Washington, DC—Below is a statement by U.S. Conference of Mayors President Miami Mayor Francis Suarez on Ukraine:

“As President of the United States Conference of Mayors, I join my fellow mayors across America in condemning Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Putin’s actions are a threat to our collective security and international peace. We stand with Ukraine’s mayors as they lead their cities, and we stand with the democratic government of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people as they resist this war of aggression. We will continue to work to support the freedom of Ukraine, the larger Ukrainian community, and our fellow mayors who serve the Ukrainian people.”
