Fully support Ukraine

Dear Editor:

Freedom loving citizens, I ask you to contact our Senators and Representatives in Washington, D.C. to fully support Ukraine to win the war so the bloodshed on both sides can end as quickly as possible. I have sent the following message:

"It is time to set up a NATO Peace Keeping force along the Ukraine/Belarus border. Russia has Peace Keeping troops in the Transdniestria region of Moldovia and thus would be an offsetting action by NATO.

“This would enable Ukraine to redeploy the many troops along the 674-mile border to the eastern front.
It is time to support Poland in supplying MIG fighter jets to Ukraine to expand their capabilities which would not require any additional training for their pilots or ground crews.

Further it is time to start training Ukrainian pilots and ground crews on the F-16 fighter jets here in the U.S. Ukraine has an abundance of pilots but insufficient aircraft."
