Today, February 24, we mark the one-year anniversary since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Ambassador Candace Bond joined some of her colleagues in the Trinidad and Tobago diplomatic corps in applauding the spirit of Ukraine in defending its country, its democracy, and its freedom.  She said the people of Ukraine have proven their determination to defend their freedom and their skill on the battlefield, and the United States and our allies and partners will continue to ensure that Ukraine has what it needs to defend its people and territory against Russia’s aggression – for as long as it takes.

The United States stand with Ukraine.
