Thomas Massie votes against legislation targeting Russia over Ukraine

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., Was again this week one of the few members of the US House to vote against legislation targeting Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.

This time it was a resolution directing the White House to detail efforts to collect evidence on war crimes in the conflict.

Massie is now the only member of the US House to vote against each of the four bills and resolutions aimed at Russia over the past month, including ones expressing support for Ukraine, banning imports of Russian oil and suspending normal trade relations with Russia.

The resolution Massie voted against Wednesday was a reaction to widespread reports of the targeting of civilians, mass executions and rape committed by Russian soldiers during the invasion, outlining a process for collecting and preserving evidence of war crimes and the submission of such evidence to a domestic , foreign or international court.
