1. Hill's opening statement is at the link

here's two paragraphs from p. 7:

As Republicans and Democrats have agreed for decades,
Ukraine is a valued partner of the United States, and it
plays an important role in our national security. And as I
told this Committee last month, I refuse to be part of an
effort to legitimize an alternate narrative that the
Ukrainian government is a U.S. adversary, and that
UkraineŚnot RussiaŚattacked us in 2016.

These fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for
purely domestic political purposes. President Putin and
the Russian security services operate like a Super PAC.
They deploy millions of dollars to weaponize our own
political opposition research and false narratives. When
we are consumed by partisan rancor, we cannot combat
these external forces as they seek to divide us against each
another, degrade our institutions, and destroy the faith of
the American people in our democracy.
