WASHINGTON, D.C. – Russia is countering U.S. sanctions with their own sanctions, and they’re targeting members of Congress, including our local reps.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry announced they’ve imposed sanctions on 398 members of the U.S. House- including our representatives: Tom Reed, Mike Kelly and Fred Keller.
The Kremlin says these members are now banned from entering Russia, and all U.S. Congressmen are ‘listed’ on a receiprocity basis.
Reps. Fred Keller and Tom Reed both told us in separate statements that these sanctions as a ‘badge of honor’ and view this as them doing their jobs as members of Congress to put America and our allies first.
