U.S. SENATE — Today, U.S. Senator Steve Daines voted to impose new sanctions against Putin’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
“On Day One, President Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline and all of the jobs in Montana that came with it. Then, to make matters worse, he allowed Putin’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline to move forward, putting Russian jobs above American ones and giving Putin leverage over our friends and allies. Now, we are seeing Russian forces threaten Ukraine and it is critical we hold Putin and Russia accountable for this aggression. It’s time we put an end to this and sanction Putin’s pipeline. It’s unacceptable that Senate Democrats chose to stand with Russia instead of with Montana workers,” Daines said.
