STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL ON DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY PROVIDING TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS TO UKRAINIAN NATIONALS PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES

“Russia’s unjustified and unprovoked attack on the sovereign and democratic country of Ukraine has led to human rights abuses, senseless violence against innocent civilians and an unprecedented humanitarian crisis that has created more than one million refugees in only a week. 

 

“New York State is home to the largest Ukrainian community in the country, and I applaud the Biden Administration and Secretary Mayorkas for protecting Ukrainian nationals present in the United States from returning to a war zone.

 

“As I’ve said before, with the Statue of Liberty standing tall in our harbor, New York stands ready to open our arms and provide a safe haven to all Ukrainians.”
