20th April 2024

Dear Speaker Johnson,

I am writing to you as a proud American and representative of the Committee for the Restoration of

the Statehood of the Nations of the North Caucasus also known as the North Caucasus Nations

Committee (NCNC), who’s members recently participated in the Jamestown Foundation’s

conference on Russia’s Rupture and Western Policy, a Joint Jamestown–Free Nations of Post-Russia

Forum. At which we met with Ambassador William Taylor, Ambassador John Herbst and

Ambassador William Cortney.

I wanted to extend my heartfelt congratulations on the expedited and unconditional approval of the

bipartisan aid bill for Ukraine. Your leadership and commitment to supporting freedom and

sovereignty in the face of violent despots and demagoguery are truly commendable and a beacon

shining the virtues of our healthy democracy.

This decisive action not only demonstrates bipartisan unity in a time of divisiveness in our country

and the world, but also sends a powerful message of solidarity with the Ukrainian people as they

continue to stand in the trenches against tyrannical antidemocratic violence. Your efforts in

channeling true and pure democracy in this time supporting a nation in need will not be forgotten. It

reflects a deep understanding of the true spirit of the United States of America as a champion of

democracy and human rights on the global stage.

Thank you for your dedication to this crucial cause and for prioritizing the values that unite us in the

pursuit of a better world.
