Senator Lisa Murkowski has condemned Russia’s attack on Ukraine and called out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression.
She stated she supports the sanctions the president announced and thinks they will make a difference.
“What Putin has done needs to be condemned in the strongest, harshest possible terms,” she said in an interview. “There needs to be punishment. There needs to be accountability.”
She said, though, that Biden could go further, with sanctions focused more on Russia’s energy sector.
“If you really want to get Putin where it hurts, you need to go after the energy assets, and this administration has chosen not to, and that means that they’re not utilizing every tool that we have at our disposal,” she said.
