WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the statement below following President Biden’s announcement that he will impose new sanctions on Russia:

“These sanctions will hold the Kremlin accountable for its actions and demonstrate that malicious cyber activities and interference in our democracy will not be tolerated,” said Klobuchar. “The Biden administration is sending a clear message that any efforts to compromise our infrastructure are unacceptable and maintaining the integrity of our elections is a top priority. They also do more than ensure accountability – these sanctions are about upholding American ideals and establishing consequences for threatening U.S. sovereignty and interests.”
