Target: Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, Robert Menendez
Goal: Commend Congress’s approval of the Ukraine aid package
Ukraine has been in need of loans to boost its unstable economy as it struggles to resist additional intrusions from Russia. After several weeks of disagreement amongst the members of Congress, a major aid package to Ukraine was finally approved. The bills passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives will give nearly 150 million dollars in direct aid to the Ukraine. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez believes the bills will send an important message to President Putin that the United States will not stand by as Russia harasses Ukraine.
Ukraine gained support from all over the world when Russia invaded Crimea. Many have criticized the United States for not getting involved earlier, but the major aid package may offer some assistance in keeping Russia at bay. The loans authorized by Congress will hopefully discourage Putin from any further intrusion into Ukraine territory.
Although the decision of whether or not to become involved in this situation was difficult, the bills approved by the Senate and the House of Representatives show that the United States will not stand idly by as Russia encroaches on Ukraine territory. Sign this petition and commend the approval of the major aid package for Ukraine.
Dear Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez,
It has come to my attention that the United States Senate and the House of Representatives have passed bills that will allow a loan of nearly 150 million dollars to the Ukraine. This major aid package will help boost Ukraine’s unstable economy as they attempt to fend off further invasion from Russia.
Russia’s encroachment of Crimea, Ukraine caused many countries around the world to criticize the United States for its lack of involvement in this terrible situation. Although President Putin claims he has no further plans to intrude into Ukraine, much of the world believes otherwise. These bills show that the United States will not stand aside as Russia annexes more of Ukraine’s territory.
I would like to thank you for your efforts in the passing of these bills. The financial support of this major aid package will give Ukraine what it needs to fend off Russia. These bills prove that while Russia continues to bully the Ukraine, the world has decided to rally with Ukraine.
[Your Name Here]
