Hoeven Returns From Ukraine

Posted: Updated:

Senator John Hoeven is back in Bismarck today after recently returning from a trip to Ukraine.

He along with Senator John McCain and six other senators got back to the United States yesterday.

Hoeven says they took the trip to get a sense of what is going on between Russia and the province of Crimea, which is a part of Ukraine.
 
"Russia came into Crimea, they invaded Crimea, and one of the first things they did is they went into the TV stations, and they had all the people leave and they put their own people in the TV stations. All of the broadcasts now are by the Russians and what Putin wants the people to know," says Hoeven.

While in the country Hoeven also met with business leaders with ties to North Dakota about their concerns.
