Rep. Banks Reacts to Russian Sanctions

FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Today, Rep. Jim Banks released the following statement in response to Russia's decision to sanction 398 Members of Congress, including Rep. Banks.

Said Rep. Banks: "It's an honor to be officially recognized as an enemy of Vladimir Putin."

“Putin has attacked the seat of American democracy and the Biden administration has left many countermeasures on the table. The president must respond appropriately and forcefully, by imposing secondary sanctions and cracking down on the majority of Russian oligarchs who he has so far refused to sanction."
