Cruz, who has been pushing for missiles in Eastern Europe since the beginning of the month along with a few of his Republican colleagues, told the Post that "appeasement has not worked" with Putin.

"After more than five years of being unwilling to stand up to Putin and Russian aggression, it is time for the United States to honor our commitments to our friends," he said.
