Senator Dan Coats is on a list of U.S. leaders and White House aides banned from Russia. “Politico” reports President Vladimir Putin responded to U.S. sanctions on Russia with sanctions of their own.
Coats falls on the “black list” along with Senator John McCain, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker John Boehner and three White House aides among others.
Coats says he is honored to be on the list, stating “Putin’s recent aggression is unacceptable and America must join with European allies to bring him to his senses.”
