Brady Statement in Opposition to Russia Sanctions Disapproval Resolution

January 17, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after voting against the disapproval resolution on Russia sanctions:

“The strongest Russia sanctions are the smart ones.  Adjusting sanctions on companies that help us punish and isolate Russian bad actors like Oleg Deripaska will encourage more companies to cooperate with America to severely hobble Russia.  

“The Treasury Department has been very aggressive in their sanctions against Russia, and it is working.”
