March 8, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released the following statement regarding the United States ban on the import of Russian fossil fuels:

“America is saying ‘nyet’ to Russian fossil fuels. By banning the import of Russian oil, coal and gas into the United States, President Biden continues to hit Russia where it hurts. This action sends a clear signal that Americans will not fund Putin’s unprovoked and illegal invasion of Ukraine. The longer Putin stays in Ukraine the more isolated his country will become from the rest of the world.”
