Rubio: Limited Action Against Russia Makes U.S. Threats Look Hollow

Jul 16, 2014 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s announcement to impose new sanctions on Russia:

“The sanctions announced today by President Obama are inadequate. It is shameful that in the face of continued Russian aggression against Ukraine, the United States and our European allies remain unwilling to take decisive action to impose comprehensive sanctions against Russia’s banking, energy and arms sectors. Just in recent days, Russia has launched attacks against Ukrainian forces defending their sovereign territory and increased military assistance to separatists who are sowing chaos and instability in eastern Ukraine. Russia’s actions in Ukraine are not ‘targeted’ or calibrated to avoid economic repercussions. Its ongoing aggression against Ukraine is a direct threat to the post-World War II international order. 

“In the pace and scope of U.S. assistance to Ukraine and the willingness to impose tough penalties on Putin, President Obama continues to act as if the U.S. does not have a direct interest in the outcome of the Ukrainian people’s struggle to choose their own destiny. Limited actions like those announced today make U.S. threats look hollow. Instead of continuing to avoid decisive action, it is time to stand with our Ukrainian partners, including immediate provision of lethal assistance requested by Ukraine, as they attempt to enjoy the fruits of freedom.”
