In a fervent speech on the House floor, Virginia Representative Gerry Connolly, a Democrat, emphatically stated that "the Ukrainian-Russian border is OUR border."

This impassioned declaration came amidst a heated debate with Republicans who were opposing the aid package to Ukraine prior to Saturday's vote.

Connolly countered the Republican argument, stating, "Some say, well, we have to deal with our border first. The Ukrainian-Russian border is our border! It’s the border between depraved autocracy and freedom-loving people seeking our democratic way of life! Do we have a stake in that outcome? Yes. Undeniably, yes."

The Virginia Representative reiterated this sentiment in a post on X, writing, "The border between Russia and Ukraine is the border between depravity and democracy. Between autocracy and freedom. We undeniably have a stake in that outcome of that fight.”


In his post, Connolly also urged solidarity with Ukraine, stating, "Today, we must stand shoulder to shoulder with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters." The post was accompanied by a video of his impassioned speech on the House floor.

Despite the opposition, the House ultimately passed the bill, which includes a staggering $61 billion in aid for Ukraine.

However, while this international border dispute is being addressed, concerns are being raised about the current state of our own border, which is reportedly under invasion.
