A group of U.S. senators are condemning one country’s support of a particular regime.

Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn has sponsored a Senate Resolution condemning the Russian Government for their continued support of the Assad regime in Syria through arms shipments.

Other participants in the resolution include Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, Barbara Boxer of California, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Idaho’s Jim Risch, and Robert Menendez of New Jersey.

Russia also continues to oppose United Nations Security Council actions against Assad as well.

“For years Russia has been arming Assad, and the United States can no longer turn a blind eye as they prop up his despicable regime and enable its murderous reign over the Syrian People,” Cornyn said.

The resolution states that the Senate “concludes that the actions of the Government of the Russian Federation…directly undermines the core national security interests of the United States, as well as the stability of the entire Middle East.”
