A new poll finds little support among Americans for a major U.S. role in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. President Joe Biden has acknowledged the growing likelihood of a new war in Eastern Europe will affect Americans even if U.S. troops don’t deploy to Ukraine. Just 26% of Americans say the U.S. should have a major role in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The president of Ukraine is downplaying yet another U.S. warning of a full scale Russian invasion in the next 48-hours. According to reports Wednesday, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has seen Joe Biden’s “assessment” of the situation and responded by saying it’s unclear whether it’s any more real than previous warnings from Washington.

In the meantime, Ukraine’s declared a nationwide state of emergency and has ordered all citizens to leave Russia immediately. Also on Wednesday, the Ukrainian government reported a mass cyber attack on government websites. Officials said a new distributed denial of service attack, or DDOS, occurred on three sites, including banking, parliament and defense ministry. However, things are now up and running.

Back in Washinton, a bipartisan group of representatives urged Biden to seek congressional approval before stationing u.s. armed forces in Ukraine. United across the political spectrum, 43 representatives from Missouri’s Cori Bush to Arizona’s Paul Gosar signed a letter to Biden on Tuesday asking for the White House to respect the Constitution.

They asserted that the best way to maintain separation of powers is to allow for a congressional vote on any use of troops, adding Americans deserve a say before troops are put in harms way or the country enters another foreign conflict.
