Rep. Titus Releases Statement on Reported Russian Bounties on U.S. Troops

WASHINGTON, DC – Greek-American Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement on June 29 in response to several media reports that President Trump failed to act after his Administration learned that Russia offered Taliban fighters payments in exchange for killing U.S. troops: 

“Defending our men and women in uniform is the commander in chief’s most basic responsibility,” said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). “If the media reports are true, President Trump looked the other way while allowing Vladimir Putin to reward Taliban fighters for killing U.S. troops. President Trump's claim of ignorance about this apparent intelligence raises serious questions about whether he is adequately informed about other possible threats to the American people. The Administration must immediately provide a full briefing to Congress on this situation.”

Alice Costandina Titus, better known to her Nevada constituents as Dina, grew up in Georgia, has lived in Nevada for over 35 years, and proudly represents Nevada’s First District in the United States Congress and is a member of the Hellenic Caucus.

Titus’ Greek heritage has always been close to her heart. As a proud granddaughter of Greek immigrant Arthur Costandinos Cathones, she considers her Greek background to be an important part of her life. Her grandfather emigrated from Greece in 1911, landing at Ellis Island. When she took the oath of office at the beginning of her tenure in Congress, she did so with her hand on her grandfather’s Greek Bible.


A former senator, minister, cabinet secretary, chief of staff to Australian former PM John Howard for more than a decade, Arthur Synodinos is Australia’s ambassador to the United States since 2020.
