Rep. Gosar votes against resolution in support of Ukraine
Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar was among only three members of the U.S. House Wednesday to vote against a resolution in support of Ukraine amid the Russian invasion.
The measure passed with a 426-to-3 vote, calls for an immediate ceasefire and the removal of Russian forces from Ukraine.
Gosar says while he supports the country’s people, he believes the non-binding resolution would commit U.S. troops to the fight under the NATO alliance.
Ukraine, however, is not a member of NATO and President Joe Biden has repeatedly said he does not support sending U.S. troops to fight in Ukraine.
The U.S. Senate passed a similar resolution last month.
