Global reactions to the Russian invasion of Ukraine

US and world leaders rushed to condemn a Russian invasion of Ukraine on Wednesday night, warning of heavy penalties ahead for the attack announced in a televised speech by Vladimir Putin.

Here’s what some of those leaders said.

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

“A massive Russian invasion of Ukraine has begun…There is no certainty as to what will follow, but no matter what the next few days and weeks bring, the United States will stand with the Ukrainian people. – now and always. It starts with moving quickly beyond the significant sanctions already announced by the Biden administration to completely cut off key Russian financial institutions from the global economy and permanently end Europe’s dependence on screw Russian oil.”
