Pelosi Statement on Intensified Sanctions Against Russia


Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Obama announced additional sanctions targeted against Russian energy, defense and financial sectors:

“The President is to be commended for his strong leadership in addressing Russia’s increasingly egregious conduct in eastern Ukraine.  These tough sanctions send a stern message to President Putin that these aggressions and escalations will not go unanswered.  Working with our European allies, we will raise the costs of Putin’s reckless adventurism and push for an end to the violence that has claimed so many lives in the fields, towns and skies of Ukraine.”
