(FOX NEWS) – U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle condemned Russia’s “unprovoked” attack of Ukraine late Wednesday after news broke that Vladimir Putin had declared a “special military operation” in Ukraine and explosions could be heard in the capital city of Kyiv and other parts of the country.

“The prayers of the world are with the people of Ukraine tonight as they suffer an unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces,” President Biden said in a White House statement. “President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.”

Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said it was the “first time in 80 years that a great power has moved to conquer a sovereign nation.” He said the invasion was without “justification, provocation and without honor.”

He blamed “tepid” responses to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, the “naïve” reset during the Obama administration and Trump’s “America First.”

“History shows that a tyrant’s appetite for conquest is never satiated,” he said, adding that America and its allies must “protect freedom by subjecting Putin and Russia to the harshest economic penalties, by expelling them from global institutions, and by committing ourselves to the expansion and modernization of our national defense.”
