I see in the news where the Koch Brothers are saying that there bottom line in there Russian business is more important then a few people being killed by Russia in the Ukraine. This typifies what the Koch Brothers are.

well, we have known for decades that the koch bros are money-grubbing scumbags, so, no surprise there

I like this part:

“It must stop,” Schumer wrote on Twitter, adding that he and Wyden were “exploring legislation to add Russia to existing laws denying foreign tax credits for taxes paid to North Korea & Syria.”

this is understand. there's no point is allowing putin to abuse people by taking over a company. Koch shouldn't benefit either

“Koch company Guardian Industries operates two glass manufacturing facilities in Russia that employ about 600 people. We have no other physical assets in Russia, and outside of Guardian, employ 15 individuals in the country. While Guardian’s business in Russia is a very small part of Koch, we will not walk away from our employees there or hand over these manufacturing facilities to the Russian government so it can operate and benefit from them (which is what the Wall Street Journal has reported they would do). Doing so would only put our employees there at greater risk and do more harm than good,” he wrote.
