Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Trump administration's approval of a lethal defensive arms sale to Ukraine:

"This is a break from failed Obama era policies to make Russia pay a cost for its aggression. With this decision, the Trump administration is reminding Vladimir Putin and his cronies that they lost the Cold War, and we won't tolerate their bullying of our friend Ukraine."
