NFTC Statement on Russian Invasion of Ukraine

Washington D.C. – National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) President Jake Colvin today issued the following statement:

"We denounce Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which is a violation of international law and undermines the safety, security and prosperity of all Ukrainians. We commend the Biden Administration for its leadership in rallying the global community of nations to implement sanctions that maximize the deterrent and punitive effects while minimizing humanitarian impacts. The business community supports efforts by the U.S. Government to continue coordinating with our allies and lead a global response to uphold the rule of law and help the Ukrainian people."
