Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement after the Treasury Department announced the latest sanctions against Russian oligarchs, officials, and entities.

Congressman McCaul: Russian oligarchs serve as the key benefactors for Vladimir Putin’s corruption and violation of international norms and standards. These corrupt individuals have engaged in threatening activities across the world, including actively supporting Russia’s destabilization of Ukraine and Syria, as well as other hostile actions against U.S. national security interests. I applaud the administration’s efforts to impose sanctions on these thugs. It is imperative that we continue to send the message that we will no longer tolerate Russia’s malign activities.”
