"The way a regime treats its own people is often indicative of how it will act toward other nations. Vladimir Putin has provided us with a tragic reminder of this correlation through his unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine."

This week, David J. Kramer, Managing Director of Global Policy at the Bush Institute, testified to the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission of the U.S. House of Representatives on how Russia should be held accountable for war crimes and aggression against Ukraine.

 

“The way a regime treats its own people is often indicative of how it will act toward other nations. Vladimir Putin has provided us with a tragic reminder of this correlation through his unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine.
