Rubio Comments On New Russia Sanctions

Jul 29, 2014 | Comunicados de Prensa

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s newly announced sanctions against Russia:

“I applaud President Obama’s announcement today of new sanctions against Russia. For months, I have urged the administration to target the key sectors of Russia’s economy in response to Vladimir Putin’s action against Ukraine. I am concerned, however, that these sanctions are apparently focused on new contracts, which will limit their impact.

“President Obama should make clear that additional sanctions will be imposed if Russia takes certain actions, such as continuing direct military intervention in Ukraine or continuing to arm the separatists.

“In addition, along with our European allies, I hope the President will also significantly increase our assistance, including military support, to the Ukrainian government.

“Russia’s continued aggression against Ukraine cannot go unanswered, and we need to do much more to make clear that we and the rest of the free world stand with the people of Ukraine at this important moment.”
