Cartwright Welcomes Ukrainian President Poroshenko on the House Floor"I was honored to join my House and Senate colleagues this morning in welcoming Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. As a foreign leader fighting for those same values that Americans hold dear, President Poroshenko was given the rare honor of addressing a Joint Session of Congress. He used the opportunity to thank the American people for standing alongside the people of Ukraine. Both the American people and its government remain committed supporting and assisting Ukraine's government. As a member of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus, I was especially glad to have the chance to chat briefly with President Poroshenko on the House floor.”
