The seven-member delegation led by Congressman Stephen Lynch, a Democrat from Massachusetts, has visited reception centers for refugees from Ukraine in eastern Poland. Poland has accepted more than 2 million people fleeing war since Russia's Feb. 24 invasion on Ukraine.

The U.S. representatives on Saturday said there is not room for peace talks over Ukraine as long as there is a “hot war.”

The lawmakers came from Massachusetts, Texas, South Carolina, Maine, Tennessee and Kansas.
