Washington, D.C. – Tomorrow at 10 a.m., House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) will convene a hearing entitled “U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.”

Chairman Royce on the hearing: “The Obama administration’s policy toward Putin’s Russia is clearly failing.  From invading Ukraine to bombing Syrian hospitals and schools, Putin has only become more belligerent, in part due to a lack of U.S. leadership and credibility.  We must work with Russia from a position of strength.  This hearing will look at ways to improve our U.S. policy in order to counter Russia’s aggression and secure American interests.”
