CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, made the following statement regarding the latest events in Ukraine.
“The United States should do everything possible to ensure Ukraine remains one country and that their territorial and political integrity is maintained, allowing them the freedom to choose a future within Europe. We would hope that Yanukovych - knowing that remaining in his post will divide the country - would do what is right and resign, allowing for the acting president to fulfill his role before free and fair elections occur in May,” said Corker.
