Attempts by Russian gov. to intimidate Amb. Wallace & @UANI are unacceptable. If President Putin is serious about stabilizing the Middle East, confronting terrorism & preventing a nuclear arms race in the region, he should stand with UANI & against Iran. https://t.co/GyZSMhDcwq

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said that UANI, where he serves as chairman, noted that Wallace’s letters demonstrate the group has been “effective at convincing the business community that investing in Iran is dangerous and unacceptably risky.”
“We are making the case every day that doing business with the regime in Tehran funds terrorism and regional adventurism that threatens the stability of our allies and the lives of individuals from across the globe, including Russians,” said Lieberman in a statement on Friday issued jointly with Frances Townsend, a UANI adviser who previously served as a homeland security adviser under US President George W. Bush.
“A nuclear Iran is a global threat—not just an American one,” they continued. “And irresponsible and reckless businesses provide the resources needed by the regime to make this threat a reality. UANI will not be deterred by the usual Russian tactics of personal threats and intimidation.”
