Hoeven Statement on Trump-Putin Summit

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement after the summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. 

“We know Russia meddled in our election based on information from our intelligence agencies. That is not acceptable and we need to make clear to the Putin regime that we will keep our sanctions in place and work with our allies to increase pressure on Russia until its behavior changes. That’s also why we worked to put sanctions on Russia and continue pressing Russia to change its behavior toward Ukraine and Syria.”
