Statement

Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN-05), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Europe and Eurasia, issued the following statement regarding the political instability in Russia.

"Although I recognize that this is a domestic issue within Russia, I feel that recently enacted laws that establish disproportionately large fines for participating in unapproved demonstrations and the widely-reported entry into private homes to prevent people from participating in peaceful assembly are steps in the wrong direction. As someone who wants the best relationship with Russia possible, I urge the Russian government to reexamine these laws and policies and to take steps that will allow for a more constructive political and economic climate."
