This testimony compilation is from the March 7, 2017 hearing "Russian Policies & Intentions Toward Specific European Countries" before the Senate Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs. From the statement of Pavlo Klimkin: "Let me thank you for giving me this opportunity to share with you our assessments and related first-hand information on Russian policies towards a big European country -- towards Ukraine. The current policies of Russia towards Ukraine can be expressed in one word -- the war. It has been already 3 years since Russia launched a military aggression against Ukraine on 20 February 2014. The appalling number of victims highlights the immorality of Kremlin's war against the Ukrainian people: over 9,800 Ukrainian citizens have been killed, about 23 000 wounded and almost 1.8 million have become internally displaced persons. 7.2 % of Ukrainian territory has been seized by Russia and millions of Ukrainian citizens live there under occupation and endless terror." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Pavlo Klimkin, Piotr Wilczek, David Bakradze, Andris Teikmanis, Rolandas Krisciunas, and Eerik Marmei.
