Greene and Massie voted against almost all legislation passed in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
The only bill Greene voted for was a non-binding resolution expressing his support for the people of Ukraine.
At times, the duo was the only voice against bills that otherwise received unanimous support.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Thomas Massie of Kentucky have voted against nearly every single piece of legislation passed in response to Russia's all-out invasion of Ukraine, according to an Insider review of recent roll-call votes in the House of Representatives.
The only exception was a March 2 non-binding resolution in support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, which Greene supported. Massie, meanwhile, joined Republican Reps. Paul Gosar of Arizona and Matt Rosendale of Montana in voting against.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began in late February, Congress has struggled to respond to what is fast becoming the largest land war in Europe since World War II. Insider identified 19 bills — ranging from non-binding resolutions to sanctions packages to authorizations for military aid — that the House of Representatives has passed since the Russian invasion began in late February. They include a mix of new laws as well as previously introduced resolutions in support of countries under Russian siege.
Some of these measures have drawn significant Republican opposition in the House of Representatives, including 57 votes against the recent allocation of $40 billion in additional aid to Ukraine, 56 votes against a bill urging debt relief for the besieged country, and 63 votes against Voting against a resolution confirming US support for NATO.
Others have also drawn opposition from the Democratic Party's left flank, including a ban on Russian oil imports, a bill allowing for the confiscation of assets belonging to Russian elites, and a bill aimed at countering Russian and Chinese influence in Eastern Europe telecommunications networks.
But Greene and Massie stand alone in the breadth of their opposition to bills aimed at countering Russia, and they were the only members of Congress to vote against three otherwise unanimous bills aimed at financially attacking Russia and Belarus.
“We have enough problems here”
On Thursday, Washington Post columnist Paul Kane asked Greene about her many votes against Ukraine-related legislation. Greene posted a clip of the exchange on her official Twitter account, criticizing the media for being "obsessed with another country".
"I feel very sorry for the Ukrainian people, but I was elected to represent my district in Georgia," Greene said, listing concerns about border security, inflation, gas prices and the lack of baby food. “Did it stop Putin? Let me ask, did Vladimir Putin stop his war in Ukraine because of all these sanctions? No not at all."
She went on to articulate an argument she has made in a few different op-eds: that "globalists" have a financial interest in waging a war in Ukraine and that the US must push for a negotiated settlement to the conflict.
"I would argue that MTG has explained why it opposes these measures far more fully than anyone else who supports these measures," Greene's communications director, Nick Dyer, wrote in an email to Insider.
