House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, alongside other top congressional leaders, dubbed Russian President Vladimir Putin “evil" over his war on Ukraine, demanding he faces massive backlash for the invasion.

“Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is reckless and evil. The United States stands with the people of Ukraine and prays for their safety and resolve,” McCarthy, R-Calif., declared. “Putin’s actions must be met with serious consequence. This act of war is intended to rewrite history and, more concerning, upend the balance of power in Europe. Putin must be held accountable for his actions.”

“What we have in Europe now is the first shooting war since World War II. This is a serious serious incident,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., went on. He levied criticism against President Biden’s strategy thus far on Russia before arguing that the U.S. and the West should deploy every available sanction against Russia immediately.

“We're all together at this point, and we need to be together about what should be done. But I have some advice. Ratchet the sanctions all the way up. Don’t hold any back. Every single available tough sanction should be employed and should be employed now,” McConnell remarked. “There's no such thing as a little invasion.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., addressed the Ukraine invasion at a press conference about abortion in New York Thursday. “The bottom line is simple. Vladimir Putin... has launched an unprovoked, immoral invasion of Ukraine,” Schumer said. “No one ... should fall... for Putin’s lies that the Ukrainians wanted him to invade or that he was provoked to invade.”

Russia commenced a full-scale invasion of Ukraine from multiple fronts Wednesday evening U.S. time. Putin declared a “special military operation” in the country in a pre-recorded video earlier this week that was broadcast early Thursday morning Russian time. Air raid sirens and explosions could be heard in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, and massive plumes of smoke were also visible in the area.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., in a Thursday press release called Russia’s behavior "thuggery” and issued a similar warning to McCarthy’s: "Vladimir Putin is a dictator bent on the reimposition of the Soviet Union sphere of influence. Today he has proven that he will spare nothing to meet this end.” “His military invasion of his democratic neighbor is a rejection of the will of its people, who have fought hard for the past decade for their independence,” Hoyer declared. “I join those around the world in praying for the people of Ukraine in their hour of danger.”
