U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, of Tulsa, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Friday night that President Barack Obama should develop a plan for aiding Ukraine and not let the United Nations lead on the situation.

Inhofe said, “I was just in Georgia shortly before the Olympics, and their government officials told me they fear Russia would further invade them next.

“This is why the United States must be vigilant. Russia’s decision to invade in the midst of Ukraine establishing a new government is a reminder of why American must be careful of who we align ourselves with in a world with ever increasing dangers.

“We must respond urgently and wisely with a plan of support, thereby reminding Russia that an attack on freedom and democracy will not be tolerated.”
