ST. GEORGE, Utah (KDXU) - Congressman Chris Stewart says the United States needs to arm the Ukrainians in their fight against Russia.

Stewart held a town hall in St. George as Russia invaded Ukraine this week.

He posted on Twitter Thursday, "The world is now witnessing the true evil that is Vladimir Putin. And as we witness this evil the U.S. and our allies must stand resolute with the Ukrainian people and resolve to provide them with support to defend against this unprovoked, unforgivable attack."

Stewart is seeking his sixth term this fall.
