Sen. Rick Scott: Time for Administration to Sanction Turkey for Dealings with Russia

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, as the Administration considers imposing sanctions related to Turkey’s purchase of the Russian-made S-400 air defense missile system, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement.

Senator Rick Scott said, “I’ve been greatly concerned about Turkey siding with Russia over NATO, culminating in their purchase of the Russian-made S-400 air defense missile system. As I have previously stated, it is time for the Administration to declare this sale a significant transaction under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), and fully implement the sanctions required under CAATSA. NATO exists to safeguard freedom and democracy – in particular because of the threats from Russia – and Turkey’s actions actively undermine these goals.”
