Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a statement Tuesday called on the United States and allies of Ukraine to provide "a pipeline of support, including arms" to the country.

"As he escalates his war against Ukraine, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin must be made to pay a far heavier price than he paid for his previous invasions of Georgia and Ukraine," McConnell said in a statement. "This should begin, but not end, with devastating sanctions against the Kremlin and its enablers. The President should waste no time in using his extensive existing authorities to impose these costs."

He added, "Our NATO and [European Union] allies must likewise take action to impose significant costs on Putin. Germany's suspension of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a welcome but overdue announcement and must be turned into permanent cancellation."

McConnell also said, "We must also stand by the brave Ukrainians fighting to protect their sovereignty. The United States and all friends of Ukraine must ensure a pipeline of support, including arms, flows to Ukrainians resisting Russian aggression."
