The Senator’s October ’19 visit to St Michael’s

On Sunday, October 13th Senator Richard  Blumenthal addressed the Ukrainian American community at St Michael’s Church hall in New Haven . His presentation focused on current efforts in Congress to support Ukraine. For the upcoming fiscal year $250 million is being authorized for defense -related assistance. Another $140 million is being allocated  for non defense aid through USAID programs in the State Department. While he touched briefly on the House impeachment investigation he was clear that this  political activity had no bearing on the ongoing support for Ukraine on Capitol Hill. In Congress Ukraine continues to enjoy strong bipartisan support.

Prior to the presentation our  Veterans organization met with the Senator for an update on the Wounded Ukrainian Soldiers  (WUS) program .

Media coverage of the event was exceptional with channel 8 WTNH (ABC) , channel 3 WFSB ( CBS) and FOX 61 camera crews present . In addition both the   New HAVEN Register and the Hartford Courant covered the event.
