Washington, DC – Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released the following statement after the White House announced sanctions on Russian officials who played roles in cyber-attacks on the United States:

“While I applaud the decision to sanction Russian officials for their role in the SolarWinds cyber-attack and assault on our democracy, I am dismayed that the White House continues to drag their feet in implementing the congressionally mandated Nord Stream 2 sanctions.

“Our European allies, the United States Congress, and even Secretary of State Blinken understand the pipeline is a Kremlin malign influence project. These sanctions, which are supported by both sides of the aisle, had received clearance from the Department of Justice and should have been put into action already. I urge President Biden to fully apply these sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG and it’s CEO, Matthias Warnig. As Vladimir Putin continues to provoke and test the United States, it’s increasingly important that we make clear we will not stand for his malign activity.”
