The Senate on Thursday passed legislation to end normal trade relations with Russia and Belarus.
Indeed, Senators voted 100 to 0 on the legislation, which ends permanent, normal trade relations with the two countries, per The Hill.
The bill also reauthorizes the Magnitsky Act sanctions that target human rights violations and corruption with penalties including visa bans or asset freezes.
The Senate is also expected to pass Thursday a separate piece of legislation to codify Biden’s ban on Russian oil imports.
“No nation whose military is committing war crimes deserves free-trade status with the United States,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said ahead of the votes. “No vile thug like Putin deserves to stand as an equal with the leaders of the free world.”
