U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) today joined fellow Republican Senators in announcing legislation to provide a strategic U.S. response to Russian aggression in Europe.
"As the President continues to be a bystander, Senate Republicans today are taking a bold first step to hold Putin accountable for his actions.
"We must help our allies break free from Russia's energy stronghold by expediting LNG exports.
"And we must cut ties with unsavory Russian companies like Rosoboronexport that we know are supplying arms to regimes that commit heinous human rights violations.
"Finally, the people of Ukraine need to be trained and equipped to defend themselves from further invasion by Russia.
"So while I continue to urge President Obama to implement real solutions to address the current crises, today we intend to act boldly where he refuses."
