A recent report card from a pro-Ukraine GOP organization rated Alabama GOP congressmen based on their support for Ukraine during the current conflict against Russia, with several failing.

Republicans for Ukraine is a coalition of Republicans who believe that the GOP should continue to support Ukraine and be “united in our support for helping Ukraine achieve victory for democracy.”

The scorecard is part of a $1 million effort to encourage GOP lawmakers to further military, humanitarian and financial aid to Ukraine as Congress prepares to vote on various federal spending packages.

Republican congressmen are rated based on public statements about Ukraine and votes on various amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act that either seek to increase or decrease funding to Ukraine.

The lowest score for the Alabama GOP congressional delegation is U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile), followed closely by U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (Enterprise). Both received an “F” rating. U.S. Rep. Dale Strong (R-Huntsville) received a “D-minus” rating. U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) walked away with a passing “B-minus.” U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Saks) topped the list with an “A,” meeting all of the group’s requirements to be considered pro-Ukraine. U.S. Rep Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) took second place with a “B.”

Republicans for Ukraine also promise to fund mobile billboards outside Palmer’s Birmingham office to encourage support for Ukraine.

“Now is a pivotal time for Americans, especially Republicans, to support Ukraine,” said Gunner Ramer, national spokesman for Republicans for Ukraine. “For just 5 percent of our annual defense budget, America has helped Ukraine destroy half of Russia’s army and liberate its territory and people. That’s a great return on investment for American national security.”
