Republican House Speaker, Paul Ryan, has come out and said that the sanctions on Russia are long over due. He also highlighted that Russia has constantly sought to undermine the USA’s interests.
“Russia does not share America’s interests. In fact, it has consistently sought to undermine them, sowing dangerous instability around the world,” he said.
“While today’s action by the administration is overdue, it is an appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia, And it serves as a prime example of this administration’s ineffective foreign policy that has left America weaker in the eyes of the world.”
