CINCINNATI, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) welcomed the announcement from the U.S. Department of State imposing new sanctions on Russia in response to the determination that the Russian government used a nerve agent on a UK citizen on UK soil. Portman released the following statement: 

“Russia’s dangerous assassination attempt using nerve agents on UK soil is yet another example of its reckless and destabilizing actions on the world stage.  We must stand with our British allies, and I’m pleased to see the Trump administration hold Russia accountable for its actions by imposing additional sanctions.”
