  • World reactions to the Russian invasion of Ukraine

A building was hit by a large-caliber mortar shell in the village of Krymske, eastern Ukraine, in February.

U.S. and world leaders rushed to condemn a Russian invasion of Ukraine on Wednesday night, warning of heavy sanctions to come for the attack announced in a televised addressed by Vladimir Putin.

Here’s what some of those leaders said. 

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee

“A massive Russian invasion of Ukraine has begun …There can be no certainty about what will come next, but no matter what the next days and weeks bring, the United States will stand with the people of Ukraine – now and always. This begins by moving swiftly beyond the significant sanctions already announced by the Biden administration to fully cutting off Russia’s leading financial institutions from the global economy and ending Europe’s dependence on Russian oil for good.”
