Senator David Perdue Comments On Senate Action On Russia Sanctions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the Senate’s action to include an amendment on Russia sanctions into the Countering Iran’s Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017:

“Today, we increased economic pressure on Russia to stop it’s aggression in the region and stop interfering with U.S. interests around the world. Russia is currently violating the territorial integrity of Georgia and Ukraine, has conducted cyberattacks on critical U.S. infrastructure, and continues to wage a propaganda war worldwide. These sanctions will send a strong message to Russia that their actions have consequences.”
