“We know that Americans are seeking for ways to help, and we know that this man is a veteran,” she explained. “I believe he had a child, and he sounded like a pretty passionate young man.” We know people want to help, but instead of flying to Ukraine to fight, we encourage Americans to find other ways to contribute.”

“This is an active war zone.” And although we are aware that Americans face grave dangers, we are also aware that a family is grieving. “A wife is in mourning, and our hearts go out to them,” she added.
