Toomey Statement on New Russia Sanctions

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Banking Committee Ranking Member Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement after President Biden imposed new sanctions on Russia:

“The sanctions announced by the White House this morning are a welcome step to hold Moscow accountable for its ongoing aggression. But to fully punish Putin for his malevolent behavior, the U.S. must sanction Nord Stream II and halt the Kremlin’s efforts to weaponize the supply of gas in Europe.”
