GOP Sen. Ron Johnson denied visa by Russian government for congressional trip

August 27, 2019

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson said Monday the Russian government has denied his request for a visa to visit the country as part of a bipartisan congressional delegation trip, as he ripped into Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Johnson, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he had planned to speak with Russian government officials, American businesses and civil society organizations during the visit.

“Unfortunately, Russian officials continue to play diplomatic games with this sincere effort and have denied me entrance to Russia,” Johnson, a Wisconsin senator, said in a statement. “Regardless of this petty affront, I will continue to advocate a strong and resolute response to Russian aggression — and frank dialogue when possible.”
