Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement in response to Putin’s increasing aggression against Ukraine:

“Vladimir Putin wants nothing more than to return to the days of the old Soviet Union, and he has made it clear he will attack the national security of the U.S. and our partners to make it happen. Meanwhile, Joe Biden has refused to take meaningful action, and his weakness has emboldened Moscow. Last year, I urged President Biden to take decisive action by sending Ukraine the lethal assistance they need to defend themselves and imposing sanctions before it was too late. I’ll say it again: It’s far past time for the Biden administration to immediately impose severe sanctions — including on the Nord Stream II pipeline — and remove Russia from the SWIFT international banking system. The President of the United States must not sit back and allow Putin to have the upper hand.”
