The resolution sparked lively debate on the House Floor, but is ultimately a simple piece of legislation. It shows the Alaska Legislature’s solidarity with the people of Ukraine by condemning Russia’s illegal invasion, supporting federal-level sanctions and other measured actions, and demanding Russia to stop hostilities. While support for the resolution was not unanimous (it was opposed by four members of the House Minority), it did offer an opportunity for the Legislature as whole to voice bi-partisan support for the independent, representative republic of Ukraine.
I am fully supportive of the Resolution and my condolences go out to the Ukrainian people during this difficult and terrifying time. There are many ways we can show our support, and one way is donating. Some aid organizations that are directly helping Ukrainians are the Ukrainian Red Cross, Voices of Children, Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, and many more.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns regarding our state legislature. You can email me at Rep.Dan.Ortiz@AKLeg.gov or call my office at 907-247-4672.
