Tester Calls on President to Keep Sanctions on Russia

Senator Holds Russia Accountable for Their Cyberattacks on America

(Glasgow, Mont.) -U.S. Senator Jon Tester today urged President Donald Trump to keep the United States' sanctions in place on Russia in order to protect Montanans and strengthen America's national security.

Tester's push follows the President's conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday, and news reports that the White House is considering lifting sanctions on Russia.

"I join the many Montanans and a growing list of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate who support the current sanctions on Russia and believe that more should be done to send a clear signal to any foreign country that seeks to do us harm," Tester wrote. "I stand ready to work with you and any Republicans or Democrats in Congress to ensure Russia fully understands that their aggression against the United States or our allies will not be tolerated."

In December, the United States sanctioned Russian spy agencies, closed two Russian compounds, and expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the country after U.S. intelligence agencies reported that Russia engaged in cyberattacks on America.
