U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said Ukraine has shown the world what it truly means to fight for democracy. 

One year ago Friday, Russian forces invaded Ukraine. Klobuchar visited the war-torn country twice last year to show the U.S. is standing with Ukraine.

“Whether that means the assistance our country has given in large sums and continues to give, and equipment and the like. Whether that means coordinating with our allies, or whether it means simply giving our strong moral support,” Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in August. She said Ukraine’s resolve in the face of the “inhuman barbarism” of Vladimir Putin has inspired us all.
