Translation of the ad:

As co-founder and co-chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, Rob Portman is standing up for Ukraine in the United States Senate.

Portman is leading the fight to condemn the Russian-backed separatist attacks, and he supports providing Ukraine with the necessary lethal weapons to defend itself.

Rob Portman is endorsed by Ukrainian Civic League.

Please remember to vote for Rob Portman for United States Senate on November 8th.


Rob has a record of standing with the Ukrainian community of Ohio. Rob has held no less than 14 meetings with groups from the Ukrainian/Eastern European community in just the last three years, and Rob has developed these relationships through a lot of hard work and engagement that dates back to 2010. 

For example, Portman has been a leader in the congressional effort to increase military assistance to Ukraine to ensure it can defend its sovereign borders against escalating Russian aggression. He has twice visited Ukraine in the past two years, and met with President Poroshenko and other senior Ukrainian officials to discuss the ongoing political, economic, and military developments. Portman is co-founder and co-chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, whose goal is to strengthen the political, military, economic and cultural relationship between the United States and Ukraine.
