  SA 4556. Mr. WHITEHOUSE (for himself and Ms. Hassan) submitted an 
amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill H.R. 4350, to 
authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2022 for military activities 
of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for 
defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military 
personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes; which 
was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:

     SEC. ___. INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF STATES AND PARTNER 
                   COUNTRIES TO COUNTER CORRUPTION AND MONEY 
                   LAUNDERING SCHEMES RELATED TO DRUG TRAFFICKING.

       (a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the ``Not 
     Allowing Revenue for Criminal Organizations Act'' or ``NARCO 
     Act''.
       (b) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Drug trafficking organizations, transnational criminal 
     organizations, and money laundering organizations prey upon 
     individuals suffering from substance use disorders and 
     exploit the financial systems of the United States to sustain 
     their criminal enterprises.
       (2) The illicit drug trade in the United States is 
     conservatively valued at $150,000,000,000 annually, making it 
     worth more than the gross domestic product of approximately 
     150 countries.
       (3) More than 93,000 individuals in the United States died 
     from drug overdoses in 2020.
       (4) Drug trafficking organizations, transnational criminal 
     organizations, and money laundering organizations perpetuate 
     crime, corruption, and kleptocracy, which undermines the rule 
     of law and erodes democratic institutions in foreign 
     countries while threatening the national security of the 
     United States.
       (5) Understanding and attacking the financial networks, 
     both in the United States and abroad, that enable drug 
     trafficking organizations, transnational criminal 
     organizations, and money laundering organizations is critical 
     to disrupting and dismantling those organizations.
       (6) As such, the national drug control strategy of the 
     United States should include an explicit focus, goals, and 
     metrics related to mapping, tracking, attacking, and 
     dismantling the financial networks of drug trafficking 
     organizations, transnational criminal organizations, and 
     money laundering organizations.
       (7) Uniform application of anti-money laundering laws and 
     information sharing will enhance the ability of the Federal 
     Government and State governments to dismantle drug 
     trafficking organizations, transnational criminal 
     organizations, and money laundering organizations.
       (8) The Financial Action Task Force establishes 
     international standards that aim to prevent money laundering 
     associated with the illicit drug trade and other illegal 
     activities, and is supported by more than 200 implementing 
     countries and jurisdictions, including the United States. In 
     its 2016 Mutual Evaluation Report of the United States, the 
     Task Force found that while Federal law enforcement agencies 
     aggressively target money laundering cases, ``State law 
     enforcement authorities can complement Federal efforts, but 
     more typically pursue State-level law enforcement priorities. 
     Among the States, there is no uniform approach and little 
     data is available. Where information was provided, it tended 
     to suggest that [money laundering] is not prioritised by the 
     State authorities.''.
       (9) It is in the best national security interest of the 
     United States to increase the capacity of States and partner 
     countries to identify, investigate, and prosecute corruption 
     and money laundering schemes that directly benefit drug 
     trafficking organizations, transnational criminal 
     organizations, and money laundering organizations.
       (c) GAO Report.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 2 years after the date of 
     enactment of this Act, and annually thereafter, the 
     Comptroller General of the United States shall submit to the 
     Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate, the Caucus on 
     International Narcotics Control of the Senate, the Committee 
     on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives, and the 
     Director of National Drug Control Policy an assessment of--
       (A) the number and status of investigations and 
     prosecutions across National Drug Control Program agencies 
     (as defined in section 702 of the Office of National Drug 
     Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 1998 (21 U.S.C. 1701)) 
     with a drug trafficking and money laundering and illicit 
     finance nexus, unless the disclosure of such information 
     would reveal information protected by rule 6(e) of the 
     Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure or a court order; and
       (B) the amount of money and other things of value in 
     various forms, including tangible and digital assets, and 
     property criminally seized by or forfeited to the Federal 
     Government on an annual basis from individuals associated 
     with drug trafficking, drug trafficking organizations, 
     transnational criminal organizations, or money laundering 
     organizations, which shall be--
       (i) adjusted to eliminate duplication in the case of 
     seizures or forfeitures carried out and reported by multiple 
     agencies; and
       (ii) disaggregated by agency.
       (2) Classified annex.--The Comptroller General may provide 
     the assessment under paragraph (1), or a portion thereof, in

     consideration changes in the trafficking of illicit drugs and 
     related money laundering schemes in the State involved.
       (2) Authorization of appropriations.--There is authorized 
     to be appropriated $300,000 for each of fiscal years 2022

Subtitle H--U.S.-Greece Defense and Interparliamentary Partnership Act 
                                of 2021

     SEC. 1291. SHORT TITLE.

       This subtitle may be cited as the ``U.S.-Greece Defense and 
     Interparliamentary Partnership Act of 2021''.

     SEC. 1292. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The United States and Greece are strong allies in the 
     North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and have deepened 
     their defense relationship in recent years in response to 
     growing security challenges in the Eastern Mediterranean 
     region.
       (2) Greece participates in several NATO missions, including 
     Operation Sea Guardian in the Mediterranean and NATO's 
     mission in Kosovo.
       (3) The Eastern Mediterranean Security and Energy 
     Partnership Act (title II of division J of Public Law 116-
     94), authorized new security assistance for Greece and 
     Cyprus, lifted the United States prohibition on arms 
     transfers to Cyprus, and authorized the establishment of a 
     United States-Eastern Mediterranean Energy Center to 
     facilitate energy cooperation among the United States, 
     Greece, Israel, and Cyprus.
       (4) The United States has demonstrated its support for the 
     trilateral partnership of Greece, Israel, and Cyprus through 
     joint engagement with Cyprus, Greece, Israel, and the United 
     States in the ``3+1'' format.
       (5) The United States and Greece have held Strategic 
     Dialogue meetings in Athens, Washington D.C., and virtually, 
     and have committed to hold an upcoming Strategic Dialogue 
     session in 2021 in Washington, D.C.
       (6) In October 2019, the United States and Greece agreed to 
     update the United States-Greece Mutual Defense Cooperation 
     Agreement, and the amended agreement officially entered into 
     force on February 13, 2020.
       (7) The amended Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement 
     provides for increased joint United States-Greece and NATO 
     activities at Greek military bases and facilities in Larissa, 
     Stefanovikio, Alexandroupolis, and other parts of central and 
     northern Greece, and allows for infrastructure improvements 
     at the United States Naval Support Activity Souda Bay base on 
     Crete.
       (8) In October 2020, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias 
     announced that Greece hopes to further expand the Mutual 
     Defense Cooperation Agreement with the United States.
       (9) The United States Naval Support Activity Souda Bay 
     serves as a critical naval logistics hub for the United 
     States Navy's 6th Fleet.
       (10) In June 2020, United States Ambassador to Greece 
     Geoffrey Pyatt characterized the importance of Naval Support 
     Activity Souda Bay as ``our most important platform for the 
     projection of American power into a strategically dynamic 
     Eastern Mediterranean region. From Syria to Libya to the 
     chokepoint of the Black Sea, this is a critically important

  SA 4586. Mrs. FEINSTEIN (for herself, Ms. Ernst, Ms. Duckworth, Ms. 
Collins, Mr. Durbin, Mr. Cornyn, Ms. Hirono, and Mr. Peters) submitted 
an amendment intended to be proposed to amendment SA 3867 submitted by 
Mr. Reed and intended to be proposed to the bill H.R. 4350, to 
authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2022 for military activities 
of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for 
defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military 
personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes; which 
was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

        At the end of subtitle B of title XII, add the following:

     SEC. 1220L. STATUS OF WOMEN AND GIRLS IN AFGHANISTAN.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Since May 2021, the escalation of violent conflict in 
     Afghanistan has forcibly displaced an estimated 655,000 
     civilians, and 80 percent of those forced to flee are women 
     and children.
       (2) Since regaining control of Afghanistan in August 2021, 
     the Taliban have taken actions reminiscent of their brutal 
     rule in the late 1990s, including by cracking down on 
     protesters, detaining and beating journalists, reestablishing 
     the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of 
     Vice, and requiring women to study at universities in gender-
     segregated classrooms while wearing Islamic attire.
       (3) Until the Taliban assumed control of the country in 
     August 2021, the women and girls of Afghanistan had achieved 
     much since

[[Page S8103]]

     2001, even as insecurity, poverty, underdevelopment, and 
     patriarchal norms continued to limit their rights and 
     opportunities in much of Afghanistan.
       (4) Through strong support from the United States and the 
     international community--
       (A) female enrollment in public schools in Afghanistan 
     continued to increase through 2015, with an estimated high of 
     50 percent of school age girls attending; and
       (B) by 2019--
       (i) women held political leadership positions, and women 
     served as ambassadors; and
       (ii) women served as professors, judges, prosecutors, 
     defense attorneys, police, military members, health 
     professionals, journalists, humanitarian and developmental 
     aid workers, and entrepreneurs.
       (5) Efforts to empower women and girls in Afghanistan 
     continue to serve the national interests of Afghanistan and 
     the United States because women are sources of peace and 
     economic progress.
       (6) With the return of Taliban control, the United States 
     has little ability to preserve the human rights of women and 
     girls in Afghanistan, and those women and girls may again 
     face the intimidation and marginalization they faced under 
     the last Taliban regime.
       (7) Women and girls in Afghanistan are again facing gender-
     based violence, including--
       (A) forced marriage;
       (B) intimate partner and domestic violence;
       (C) sexual harassment;
       (D) sexual violence, including rape;
       (E) denial of resources; and
       (F) emotional and psychological violence.
       (8) Gender-based violence has always been a significant 
     problem in Afghanistan and is expected to become more 
     widespread with the Taliban in control. In 2020, even before 
     the Taliban assumed control of the country, Human Rights 
     Watch projected that 87 percent of Afghan women and girls 
     will experience at least one form of gender-based violence in 
     their lifetime, with 62 percent experiencing multiple 
     incidents of such violence.
       (9) Prior to the Taliban takeover in August 2021, 
     approximately 7,000,000 people in Afghanistan lacked or had 
     limited access to essential health services as a result of 
     inadequate public health coverage, weak health systems, and 
     conflict-related interruptions in care.
       (10) Women and girls faced additional challenges, as their 
     access to life-saving services, such as emergency obstetric 
     services, was limited due to a shortage of female medical 
     staff, cultural barriers, stigma and fears of reprisals 
     following sexual violence, or other barriers to mobility, 
     including security fears.
       (11) Only approximately 50 percent of pregnant women and 
     girls in Afghanistan deliver their children in a health 
     facility with a professional attendant, which increases the 
     risk of complications in childbirth and preventable maternal 
     mortality.
       (12) Food insecurity in Afghanistan is also posing a 
     variety of threats to women and girls, as malnutrition 
     weakens their immune systems and makes them more susceptible 
     to infections, complications during pregnancy, and risks 
     during childbirth.
       (13) With the combined impacts of ongoing conflict and 
     COVID-19, Afghan households increasingly resort to child 
     marriage, forced marriage, and child labor to address food 
     insecurity and other effects of extreme poverty.
       (14) In Afghanistan, the high prevalence of anemia among 
     adolescent girls reduces their ability to survive childbirth, 
     especially when coupled with high rates of child marriage and 
     forced marriage and barriers to accessing safe health 
     services and information.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) since 2001, organizations and networks promoting the 
     empowerment of women and girls have been important engines of 
     social, economic, and political development in Afghanistan;
       (2) any future political order in Afghanistan should secure 
     the political, economic, and social gains made by Afghan 
     women and work to increase the equal treatment of women and 
     girls and improve the safe access for women and girls to 
     essential services and information through laws and policies 
     pertaining to public and private life;
       (3) respecting the human rights of all people is essential 
     to securing lasting peace and sustainable development in 
     Afghanistan;
       (4) in cooperation with international partners, the United 
     States must endeavor to preserve the hard-won gains made in 
     Afghanistan during the past two decades, particularly as 
     related to the social, economic and political empowerment of 
     women and girls in society;
       (5) the continued provision of humanitarian assistance in 
     Afghanistan should be targeted toward the most vulnerable, 
     including for the protection, education, and well-being of 
     women and girls;
       (6) immediate and ongoing humanitarian needs in Afghanistan 
     can only be met by a humanitarian response that includes 
     formal agreements between local nongovernmental organizations 
     and international partners that promotes the safe access and 
     participation of female staff at all levels and across 
     functional roles among all humanitarian actors; and
       (7) a lack of aid and essential services would exacerbate 
     the current humanitarian crisis and serve to reinforce gender 
     inequalities and power imbalances in Afghanistan.
       (c) Policy of the United States Regarding the Rights of 
     Women and Girls of Afghanistan.--
       (1) In general.--It is the policy of the United States--
       (A) to continue to support the human rights of women and 
     girls in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of the United 
     States Armed Forces from Afghanistan, including through 
     mechanisms to hold all parties publicly accountable for 
     violations of international humanitarian law and human rights 
     violations against women and girls;
       (B) to strongly oppose any weakening of the rights of women 
     and girls in Afghanistan;
       (C) to use the voice and influence of the United States at 
     the United Nations to promote, respect, and uphold the human 
     rights of the women and girls of Afghanistan, including the 
     right to safely work;
       (D) to identify individuals who violate the human rights of 
     women and girls in Afghanistan, as those rights are defined 
     by international human rights standards, such as by 
     committing acts of murder, lynching, and grievous domestic 
     violence against women, and to press for bringing those 
     individuals to justice;
       (E) to systematically consult with Afghan women and girls 
     on their needs and priorities in the development, 
     implementation, and monitoring of humanitarian action, 
     including women and girls who are part of the Afghan diaspora 
     community; and
       (F) to ensure all humanitarian action is informed by--
       (i) a gender analysis that identifies forms of inequality 
     and oppression; and
       (ii) the collection, analysis, and use of data 
     disaggregated by sex and age.
       (d) Humanitarian Assistance and Afghan Women.--The 
     Administrator of the United States Agency for International 
     Development should work to ensure that Afghan women are 
     employed and enabled to work in the delivery of humanitarian 
     assistance in Afghanistan, to the extent practicable.
       (e) Report on Women and Girls in Afghanistan.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, and every 180 days thereafter 
     through 2024, the Secretary of State shall submit to the 
     appropriate committees of Congress a report that includes the 
     following:

     Afghanistan following the departure of United States and 
     partner military forces, including with respect to access to 
     primary and secondary education, jobs, health care, and legal 
     protections and status.
       (B) An assessment of the political and civic participation 
     of women and girls in Afghanistan.
       (C) An assessment of the prevalence of gender-based 
     violence in Afghanistan.
       (D) A report on funds for United States foreign assistance 
     obligated or expended during the period covered by the report 
     to advance gender equality and the human rights of women and 
     girls in Afghanistan, including funds directed toward local 
     organizations promoting the rights of women and girls.
       (2) Assessment.--
       (A) Input.--The assessment described in paragraph (1)(A) 
     shall include the input of--
       (i) Afghan women and girls;
       (ii) organizations employing and working with Afghan women 
     and girls; and
       (iii) humanitarian organizations providing assistance in 
     Afghanistan.

     assessment described in paragraph (1)(A), the Secretary

     and confidentiality of personal information of each 
     individual who provides information from within Afghanistan.
       (3) Definition of appropriate committees of congress.--In 
     this subsection, the term ``appropriate committees of 
     Congress'' means--

     Appropriations of the Senate; and
       (B) the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Committee on 
     Appropriations of the House of Representatives.

     as ``ROC'' at Tokyo 2020 demonstrates to authoritarian states 
     around the world that systematic doping will be tolerated; 
     and
       (2) aggressive enforcement of the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping 
     Act of 2019 (21 U.S.C. 2401 et seq.) can create the deterrent 
     required to curb doping fraud as the Foreign Corrupt 
     Practices Act of 1977 (15 U.S.C. 78dd-1 et seq.) curbed 
     foreign bribery and the Department of Justice and the Federal 
     Bureau of Investigation should prioritize enforcement of the 
     Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act of 2019 (21 U.S.C. 2401 et seq.).
       (c) Predicate Offenses.--Part I of title 18, United States 
     Code, is amended--
       (1) in section 1956(c)(7)(D)--
       (A) by striking ``or section 104(a)'' and inserting 
     ``section 104(a)''; and
       (B) by inserting after ``North Korea)'' the following: ``, 
     or section 3 of the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act of 2019 (21 
     U.S.C. 2402) (relating to prohibited activities with respect 
     to major international doping fraud conspiracies)''; and
       (2) in section 1961(1)--
       (A) by striking ``or (G) any act'' and inserting ``(G) any 
     act''; and
       (B) by inserting after ``section 2332(b)(g)(5)(B)'' the 
     following: ``, or (H) any act that is indictable under 
     section 3 of the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act of 2019 (21 
     U.S.C. 2402)''.
       (d) Limitation.--An athlete (as defined in section 2 of the 
     Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act of 2019 (21 U.S.C. 2401)) may not 
     be prosecuted for any offense for which a violation of 
     section 3 of the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act of 2019 (21 
     U.S.C. 2402) was the predicate offense, including under 
     section 371, 1952, 1956, or 1957 or chapter 96 of title 18, 
     United States Code.

   Subtitle H--Otto Warmbier Countering North Korean Censorship and 
                        Surveillance Act of 2021

     SEC. 1291. SHORT TITLE.

       This subtitle may be cited as the ``Otto Warmbier 
     Countering North Korean Censorship and Surveillance Act of 
     2021''.

     SEC. 1292. FINDINGS; SENSE OF CONGRESS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The information landscape in North Korea is the most 
     repressive in the world, consistently ranking last or near-
     last in the annual World Press Freedom Index.
       (2) Under the brutal rule of Kim Jung Un, the country's 
     leader since 2012, the North Korean regime has tightened 
     controls on access to information, as well as enacted harsh 
     punishments for consumers of outside media, including 
     sentencing to time in a concentration camp and a maximum 
     penalty of death.
       (3) Such repressive and unjust laws surrounding information 
     in North Korea resulted in the death of 22-year-old United 
     States citizen and university student Otto Warmbier, who had 
     traveled to North Korea in December 2015 as part of a guided 
     tour.
       (4) Otto Warmbier was unjustly arrested, sentenced to 15 
     years of hard labor, and severely mistreated at the hands of 
     North Korean officials. While in captivity, Otto Warmbier 
     suffered a serious medical emergency that placed him into a 
     comatose state. Otto Warmbier was comatose upon his release 
     in June 2017 and died 6 days later.
       (5) Despite increased penalties for possession and 
     viewership of foreign media, the people of North Korean have 
     increased their desire for foreign media content, according 
     to a survey of 200 defectors concluding that 90 percent had 
     watched South Korean or other foreign media before defecting.
       (6) On March 23, 2021, in an annual resolution, the United 
     Nations General Assembly condemned ``the long-standing and 
     ongoing systematic, widespread and gross violations of human 
     rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea'' and 
     expressed grave concern at, among other things, ``the denial 
     of the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion 
     . . . and of the rights to freedom of opinion, expression, 
     and association, both online and offline, which is enforced 
     through an absolute monopoly on information and total control 
     over organized social life, and arbitrary and unlawful state 
     surveillance that permeates the private lives of all 
     citizens''.
       (7) In 2018, Typhoon Yutu caused extensive damage to 15 
     broadcast antennas used by the United States Agency for 
     Global Media in Asia, resulting in reduced programming to 
     North Korea. The United States Agency for Global Media has 
     rebuilt 5 of the 15 antenna systems as of June 2021.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) in the event of a crisis situation, particularly where 
     information pertaining to the crisis is being actively 
     censored or a false narrative is being put forward, the 
     United States should be able to quickly increase its 
     broadcasting capability to deliver fact-based information to 
     audiences, including those in North Korea; and
       (2) the United States International Broadcasting Surge 
     Capacity Fund is already authorized under section 316 of the 
     United States International Broadcasting Act of 1994 (22 
     U.S.C. 6216), and expanded authority to transfer unobligated 
     balances from expired accounts of the United States Agency 
     for Global Media would enable the Agency to more nimbly 
     respond to crises.

     SEC. 1293. STATEMENT OF POLICY.

        It is the policy of the United States--
       (1) to provide the people of North Korea with access to a 
     diverse range of fact-based information;
       (2) to develop and implement novel means of communication 
     and information sharing that increase opportunities for 
     audiences in North Korea to safely create, access, and share 
     digital and non-digital news without fear of repressive 
     censorship, surveillance, or penalties under law; and

[[Page S8115]]

       (3) to foster and innovate new technologies to counter 
     North Korea's state-sponsored repressive surveillance and 
     censorship by advancing internet freedom tools, technologies, 
     and new approaches.

     situations in the future.

     appropriations under section 1296 will operate alongside and 
     augment existing programming from the relevant Federal

                   REPUBLIC OF CHINA BY MULTILATERAL DEVELOPMENT 
                   BANKS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The People's Republic of China is the world's second 
     largest economy and a major global lender.
       (2) In February 2021, the foreign exchange reserves of the 
     People's Republic of China totaled more than 
     $3,200,000,000,000.
       (3) The World Bank classifies the People's Republic of 
     China as having an upper-middle-income economy.
       (4) On February 25, 2021, President Xi Jinping announced 
     ``complete victory'' over extreme poverty in the People's 
     Republic of China.
       (5) The Government of the People's Republic of China 
     utilizes state resources to create and promote the Asian 
     Infrastructure Investment Bank, the New Development Bank, and 
     the Belt and Road Initiative.
       (6) The People's Republic of China is the world's largest 
     official creditor.
       (7) Through a multilateral development bank, countries are 
     eligible to borrow until they can manage long-term 
     development and access to capital markets without financial 
     resources from the bank.
       (8) The World Bank reviews the graduation of a country from 
     eligibility to borrow from the International Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development once the country reaches the 
     graduation discussion income, which is equivalent to the 
     gross national income. For fiscal year 2021, the graduation 
     discussion income is a gross national income per capita 
     exceeding $7,065.
       (9) Many of the other multilateral development banks, such 
     as the Asian Development Bank, use the gross national income 
     per capita benchmark used by the International Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development to trigger the graduation 
     process.
       (10) The People's Republic of China exceeded the graduation 
     discussion income threshold in 2016.
       (11) Since 2016, the International Bank for Reconstruction 
     and Development has approved projects totaling $8,930,000,000 
     to the People's Republic of China.
       (12) Since 2016, the Asian Development Bank has continued 
     to approve loans and technical assistance to the People's 
     Republic of China totaling $7,600,000,000. The Bank has also 
     approved non-sovereign commitments in the People's Republic 
     of China totaling $1,800,000,000 since 2016.
       (13) The World Bank calculates the People's Republic of 
     China's most recent year (2019) gross national income per 
     capita as $10,390.
       (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United 
     States to oppose any additional lending from the multilateral 
     development banks, including the International Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development and the Asian Development 
     Bank, to the People's Republic of China as a result of the 
     People's Republic of China's successful graduation from the 
     eligibility requirements for assistance from those banks.
       (c) Opposition to Lending to People's Republic of China.--
     The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United 
     States Executive Director at each multilateral development 
     bank to use the voice, vote, and influence of the United 
     States--
       (1) to oppose any loan or extension of financial or 
     technical assistance by the bank to the People's Republic of 
     China; and
       (2) to end lending and assistance to countries that exceed 
     the graduation discussion income of the bank.
       (d) Report Required.--Not later than one year after the 
     date of the enactment of this Act, and annually thereafter, 
     the Secretary of the Treasury shall submit to the appropriate 
     congressional committees a report that includes--
       (1) an assessment of the status of borrowing by the 
     People's Republic of China from each multilateral development 
     bank;
       (2) a description of voting power, shares, and 
     representation by the People's Republic of China at each such 
     bank;
       (3) a list of countries that have exceeded the graduation 
     discussion income at each such bank;
       (4) a list of countries that have graduated from 
     eligibility for assistance from each such bank; and
       (5) a full description of the efforts taken by the United 
     States to graduate countries from such eligibility once they 
     exceed the graduation discussion income at each such bank.
       (e) Definitions.--In this section:
       (1) Appropriate congressional committees.--The term 
     ``appropriate congressional committees'' means--
       (A) the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate; and

     to bring the parties to agreement by mediation and 
     conciliation, the Service shall refer the dispute to a

     section 201(a), or an Executive order renewing an emergency 
     under section 201(e) or specifying emergency powers or

     shall be automatically discharged from further consideration 
     of the resolution and it shall be placed on the calendar.
       ``(ii) Proceeding to consideration.--Notwithstanding Rule 
     XXII of the Standing Rules of the Senate, when the committee 
     to which a joint resolution of approval or a joint resolution 
     of termination is referred has reported the resolution, or 
     when that committee is discharged under clause (i) from 
     further consideration of the resolution, it is at any time 
     thereafter in order (even though a previous motion to the 
     same effect has been disagreed to) for a motion to proceed to 
     the consideration of the joint resolution to be made, and all 
     points of order against the joint resolution (and against 
     consideration of the joint resolution) are waived. The motion 
     to proceed is subject to 4 hours of debate divided equally 
     between those favoring and those opposing the joint 
     resolution of approval or the joint resolution of

     amendment to a joint resolution of approval to strike from or 
     add to the list required by paragraph (1)(A)(ii) a provision 
     or provisions of law specified by the President under section 
     201(b) in the proclamation or Executive order.

     relevancy, and appeals from the decision of the Presiding 
     Officer, shall be decided without debate.
       ``(E) Consideration in house of representatives.--In the 
     House of Representatives, if any committee to which a joint 
     resolution of approval or a joint resolution of termination 
     has been referred has not reported it to the House at the end 
     of 10 calendar days after its introduction, such committee 
     shall be discharged from further consideration of the joint 
     resolution, and it shall be placed on the appropriate 
     calendar. On Thursdays it shall be in order at any time for 
     the Speaker to recognize a Member who favors passage of a 
     joint resolution that has appeared on the calendar for at 
     least 3 calendar days to call up that joint resolution for 
     immediate consideration in the House without intervention of 
     any point of order. When so called up a joint resolution 
     shall be considered as read and shall be debatable for 1 hour 
     equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an 
     opponent, and the previous question shall be considered as 
     ordered to its passage without intervening motion. It shall 
     not be in order to reconsider the vote on passage. If a vote 
     on final passage of the joint resolution has not been taken 
     on or before the close of the tenth calendar day after the 
     resolution is reported by the committee or committees to 
     which it was referred, or after such committee or committees 
     have been discharged from further consideration of the 
     resolution, such vote shall be taken on that day.
       ``(F) Receipt of resolution from other house.--If, before 
     passing a joint resolution of approval or a joint resolution 
     of termination, one House receives from the other House a 
     joint resolution of approval or a joint resolution of 
     termination--
       ``(i) the joint resolution of the other House shall not be 
     referred to a committee and shall be deemed to have been 
     discharged from committee on the day it is received; and
       ``(ii) the procedures set forth in subparagraph (D) or (E), 
     as applicable, shall apply in the receiving House to the 
     joint resolution received from the other House to the same 
     extent as such procedures apply to a joint resolution of the 
     receiving House.
       ``(G) Rule of construction.--The enactment of a joint 
     resolution of approval or of a joint resolution of 
     termination under this subsection shall not be interpreted to 
     serve as a grant or modification by Congress of statutory 
     authority for the emergency powers of the President.
       ``(b) Rules of the House and the Senate.--Subsection (a) is 
     enacted by Congress--
       ``(1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate 
     and the House of Representatives, respectively, and as such 
     is deemed a part of the rules of each House, respectively, 
     but applicable only with respect to the procedure to be 
     followed in the House in the case of joint resolutions of 
     approval, and supersede other rules only to the extent that 
     it is inconsistent with such other rules; and

     House.''.

amendment SA 3867 submitted by Mr. Reed and intended to be proposed to 
the bill H.R. 4350, to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2022

        At the end of title XII, add the following:

          Subtitle H--Ukraine Security Partnership Act of 2021

     SEC. 1291. SHORT TITLE.

       This subtitle may be cited as the ``Ukraine Security 
     Partnership Act of 2021''.

     SEC. 1292. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Throughout its history, Ukraine has experienced several 
     long periods of occupation.
       (2) Between 1919 and 1991, Ukraine was brutally ruled by 
     the Soviet Union, whose policy of agricultural 
     collectivization caused the Holodomor of 1932-1933, a man-
     made famine that resulted in the death of at least 3,000,000 
     Ukrainians by starvation.
       (3) During the Nazi occupation of Ukraine accompanying 
     World War II--
       (A) approximately 3,500,000 Ukrainian civilians and 
     3,000,000 soldiers were killed; and
       (B) approximately 1,500,000 Jews were massacred.
       (4) Ukraine declared its independence from Moscow in 1991, 
     after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
       (5) In the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, the Russian 
     Federation, the United States, and the United Kingdom pledged 
     to ``respect the independence and sovereignty and the 
     existing borders of Ukraine'' and ``refrain from the threat 
     or use of force against the territorial integrity or 
     political independence of Ukraine'' in exchange for Ukraine's 
     surrender of its nuclear arsenal.
       (6) From November 2004 through January 2005, thousands of 
     Ukrainians took to the streets to peacefully protest 
     electoral fraud and widespread corruption by the ruling elite 
     in the 2004 Presidential election, successfully triggering a 
     re-vote, in what became known as the Orange Revolution.
       (7) During Ukraine's 2014 Revolution of Dignity, or 
     Euromaidan, the pro-Russian government of President Viktor 
     Yanukovych was forced to resign after thousands of Ukrainians 
     peacefully protested Yanukovych's decision to reject a closer 
     relationship with the European Union and his continued 
     systemic corruption, and over 100 of those protestors were 
     killed by violent government suppression.
       (8) Fearful of Ukraine's strengthened pro-Western 
     orientation after the Revolution of Dignity, the Government 
     of the Russian Federation, in violation of international law 
     and in contravention of its commitments in the Budapest 
     Memorandum--
       (A) sent undisclosed military personnel into Ukraine's 
     Autonomous Republic of Crimea in February 2014 and has 
     illegally occupied the Crimean Peninsula for the past seven 
     years;
       (B) sent covert, unmarked military personnel into the 
     Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in April 2014, 
     instigating and supporting a still-ongoing conflict that has 
     cost nearly 14,000 lives; and
       (C) provided the Buk missile system used by those Russia-
     led forces to shoot down Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over 
     eastern Ukraine in July 2014, killing all 298 passengers and 
     crew on board.
       (9) Under Russian control, Crimean authorities have 
     kidnapped, imprisoned, and tortured Crimean Tatars, 
     opposition figures, activists, and other minority 
     populations, and have persecuted religious minorities by 
     pressing false charges of terrorism and deregistering 
     religious centers.
       (10) In September 2014, in an attempt to stop the fighting 
     that the Russian Federation had initiated in eastern Ukraine, 
     France, Germany, Ukraine, the Russian Federation, the 
     Organization for Security and Cooperation (OSCE), and Russia-
     led forces from eastern Ukraine signed the Minsk Protocol.
       (11) In February 2015, after the failure of the initial 
     Minsk Protocol, the Russian Federation committed to the Minsk 
     II Agreement, the roadmap for resolving the conflict in 
     eastern Ukraine, signed by the Governments of Ukraine, 
     Russia, France, and Germany.
       (12) Despite these agreements, the Government of the 
     Russian Federation continues to violate Ukrainian sovereignty 
     through--
       (A) manipulation of Ukraine's dependence on Russian natural 
     gas, including cutting off access in 2014, which deprived 
     Ukraine of its energy supply and transit fees;
       (B) espionage and clandestine assassinations on Ukrainian 
     territory;

[[Page S8159]]

       (C) continuous cyber warfare against the Government of 
     Ukraine and Ukrainian businesses, such as the NotPetya hack 
     in 2017; and
       (D) seizure of Ukrainian property and citizens, including 
     the November 2018 seizure in the Kerch Strait of three 
     Ukrainian naval vessels and 24 Ukrainian officers on board 
     those vessels.
       (13) In July 2018, Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo 
     issued the Crimea Declaration and reiterated in February 2020 
     on the sixth anniversary of Russia's illegal occupation that 
     ``Crimea is Ukraine''.
       (14) On February 26, 2021 President Joseph R. Biden 
     confirmed that Crimea is Ukraine and the United States does 
     not and will never recognize Russia's purported annexation of 
     the peninsula.
       (15) Since April 2014, at least 4,100 Ukrainian soldiers 
     have died fighting for their country against the Russian 
     Federation and Russia-led forces, while no less than 3,361 
     civilians have perished as a result of that fighting.
       (16) Despite Ukraine's tumultuous history and neighborhood, 
     in under 30 years it has risen from the collapse of the 
     Soviet Union to become a developing democracy, steadily 
     working to overcome its Soviet legacy of oppression, 
     oligarchic control, and corruption.
       (17) Running on a strong anti-corruption platform, 
     Volodymyr Zelensky won the 2019 presidential election with 73 
     percent of the vote, and his political party, Servant of the 
     People, won a parliamentary majority in the Ukrainian 
     parliament.
       (18) The OSCE confirmed the 2019 elections were 
     ``competitive and fundamental freedoms were generally 
     respected''.
       (19) In March and April 2021, the Russian Federation 
     amassed over 75,000 troops on its border with the Eastern 
     Ukraine and in the occupied territory of Crimea.
       (20) Since 2014, the Government of Ukraine has made 
     difficult and substantial reforms in an effort to address 
     corruption and more closely align with the West, such as 
     slimming and decentralizing its bureaucracy, removing 
     immunity from prosecution for Members of Parliament, 
     reforming its gas, pension, and procurement systems, and 
     working to adapt its military to the standards of the North 
     Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
       (21) Despite progress in reforming many areas of Ukrainian 
     governance, serious issues still remain, particularly in the 
     areas of corruption and rule of law.
       (22) The United States Government has consistently 
     supported Ukraine's democratic transition and its fight 
     against Russia-led forces by assisting its governance reform 
     efforts, maintaining robust and coordinated sanctions against 
     the Russian Federation alongside the European Union, and 
     providing the Ukrainian military with training and equipment, 
     including lethal defensive weaponry.
       (23) In addition to the United States, the European Union, 
     European countries, and Canada have provided substantial 
     diplomatic, monetary, and military support for Ukraine's 
     democratic transition and its fight against Russia-led forces 
     in eastern Ukraine, and also have implemented and maintained 
     robust sanctions regimes against the Russian Federation for 
     its illegal occupation of Crimea and its active 
     destabilization of Ukraine.
       (24) the Government of Ukraine has steadfastly supported 
     the United States and European allies by deploying troops to 
     Iraq, Afghanistan, and NATO's Kosovo Force (KFOR), allowing 
     United States military planes to refuel on Ukrainian soil, 
     and trading billions of dollars' worth of goods and services 
     with the United States.
       (25) NATO has recently decided to include Ukraine in its 
     Enhanced Opportunities Partnership in recognition of 
     Ukraine's contributions to NATO missions and efforts to 
     reform its military in line with NATO standards.
       (26) Since the Russian Federation's 2014 invasion of 
     Ukraine, the United States Congress has demonstrated its 
     support for Ukraine through the passage of legislation, 
     including the Support for the Sovereignty, Integrity, 
     Democracy, and Economic Stability of Ukraine Act of 2014 
     (Public Law 113-95; 22 U.S.C. 8901 et seq.), the Ukraine 
     Freedom Support Act (Public Law 113-272; 22 U.S.C. 8921 et 
     seq.), the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative established 
     under section 1250 of the National Defense Authorization Act 
     for Fiscal Year 2016 (Public Law 114-92; 129 Stat. 1068), the 
     Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act 
     (Public Law 115-44), and the Protecting Europe's Energy 
     Security Act of 2019 (Public Law 116-92, title LXXV), and the 
     United States Congress continues to demonstrate strong 
     support for assisting Ukraine in defending itself and 
     deterring Russia.

     SEC. 1293. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

       It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) Ukraine stands as a bulwark against the malign 
     influence of the Russian Federation in Europe, and robust 
     United States support for Ukraine is vital to United States 
     national security and demonstrates the commitment of the 
     United States to upholding a free and open international 
     order;
       (2) since Ukraine's independence in 1991, the Government 
     and people of Ukraine have made significant strides towards 
     improved governance, rule of law, anti-corruption measures, 
     and economic reforms;
       (3) Ukraine's long-term viability is directly connected to 
     its efforts to reduce corruption and build strong democratic 
     institutions that are able to defend against internal and 
     external corrupt actors;
       (4) the efforts and sacrifices of Ukrainian citizens to 
     determine their own fate after centuries of oppression, 
     through democratic representation and governance reforms, is 
     evidence of that country's dedication to a free, independent, 
     and democratic future;
       (5) Ukraine has proven itself to be a valuable security 
     partner of the United States, not simply a recipient of 
     assistance;
       (6) it is in the national security interests of the United 
     States to continue and deepen its security partnership with 
     Ukraine, including through the provision of both lethal and 
     non-lethal assistance;
       (7) the United States should continue to place policy-based 
     conditions on Ukraine's receipt of financial and military 
     assistance, as that mechanism has proven effective in 
     incentivizing reforms in Ukraine;
       (8) the United States should use its voice and vote at NATO 
     to encourage the adoption of a policy by the Alliance that 
     all of its member states will refuse to recognize the illegal 
     attempted annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation;
       (9) the United States should support at the highest level 
     and take an active part in the Ukrainian ``Crimean Platform'' 
     initiative to ensure that the international community's 
     attention remains focused on--
       (A) the unacceptable violation of Ukraine's territorial 
     integrity in Crimea; and
       (B) working towards the reversal of such violation;
       (10) the United States should continue to bolster the 
     capacity of the Ukrainian Navy as it strives to fulfill the 
     goals it set out in its ``Strategy of the Naval Forces of the 
     Armed Forces of Ukraine 2035'';
       (11) the military-focused technical, training, maintenance, 
     and logistical assistance provided by the United States to 
     Ukraine is as essential as the military hardware provided to 
     the country;
       (12) all security assistance provided to Ukraine should 
     continue to be subject to rigorous vetting requirements under 
     section 620M of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 
     2378d) and security cooperation under section 362 of title 
     10, United States Code, including assistance provided to 
     units in the National Guard of Ukraine as well as all units 
     falling under the authority of the Ministry of Defense;
       (13) the Office of Defense Cooperation at the United States 
     Embassy in Ukraine should be fully staffed in order to 
     administer the security assistance being provided to the 
     country;
       (14) the United States should continue to support Ukraine's 
     NATO aspirations, including through work towards a Membership 
     Action Plan;
       (15) the enduring partnership between the United States and 
     Ukraine, including bipartisan support for a sovereign, 
     democratic, and whole Ukraine through political, monetary, 
     and military assistance, remains strong and must continue to 
     be reaffirmed; and
       (16) the United States should continue to strongly support 
     Ukraine's ambitions to join the Euro-Atlantic community of 
     democracies.

     SEC. 1294. STATEMENT OF POLICY.

       It is the policy of the United States--
       (1) to refuse to recognize the attempted annexation of 
     Crimea by the Russian Federation, an action that was taken in 
     contravention of international law;
       (2) to utilize existing sanctions and other authorities to 
     deter malign actions by the Russian Federation in or intended 
     to harm Ukraine, including the mandates and authorities 
     codified by--
       (A) the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions 
     Act (22 U.S.C. 9401 et seq.); and
       (B) the Protecting Europe's Energy Security Act of 2019 
     (title LXXV of Public Law 116-92; 22 U.S.C. 9526 note);
       (3) to work with our European allies to coordinate 
     strategies to curtail Russian malign influence in Ukraine;
       (4) to work with our allies and partners to conduct more 
     frequent multinational freedom of navigation operations in 
     the Black Sea in order to demonstrate support for Ukraine's 
     internationally-recognized maritime boundaries, to safeguard 
     the unimpeded traffic of lawful commerce, and to push back 
     against excessive Russian Federation claims of sovereignty;
       (5) to work with our allies and partners to demonstrate 
     support for Ukraine's territorial integrity, including its 
     internationally-recognized land borders; and
       (6) to support democratic, economic, and anti-corruption 
     reforms in Ukraine and the country's integration into Euro-
     Atlantic institutions.

                   UKRAINE.

        Beginning on page 566, strike line 10 and all that follows 
     through page 570, line 6, and insert the following:
       (2) NATO remains the strongest and most successful 
     political-military alliance in the world, founded on a 
     commitment by its members to uphold the principles of 
     democracy, individual liberty, and the rule of law;
       (3) NATO's contributions to collective defense are 
     indispensable to the security, prosperity, and freedom of its 
     members;
       (4) the United States reaffirms its ironclad commitment to 
     NATO as the foundation of transatlantic security and to 
     upholding its obligations under the North Atlantic Treaty, 
     including Article 5;
       (5) NATO is meant to be an alliance of countries with 
     shared democratic values and the United States reaffirms its 
     commitment to Article 2 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which 
     states the following: ``The Parties will contribute toward 
     the further development of peaceful and friendly 
     international relations by strengthening their free 
     institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the 
     principles upon which these institutions are founded, and by 
     promoting conditions of stability and well-being. They will 
     seek to eliminate conflict in their international economic 
     policies and will encourage economic collaboration between 
     any or all of them.'';
       (6) the commitment of NATO allies during 18 years of 
     security, humanitarian, and stabilization operations in 
     Afghanistan has been invaluable, and the sacrifices of NATO 
     allies deserve the highest order of respect and gratitude;
       (7) the United States remains focused on long-term 
     strategic competition with Russia, and a strong NATO alliance 
     plays an essential role in addressing such competition and 
     mitigating shared security concerns;
       (8) the United States should--
       (A) deepen defense cooperation with non-NATO European 
     partners, bilaterally and as part of the NATO alliance; and
       (B) encourage security sector cooperation between NATO and 
     non-NATO defense partners that complements and strengthens 
     collective defense, interoperability, and allies' commitment 
     to Article 3 of the North Atlantic Treaty;
       (9) bolstering NATO cooperation and enhancing security 
     relationships with non-NATO European partners to counter 
     Russian aggression, including Russia's use of hybrid warfare 
     tactics and its willingness to use military power to alter 
     the status quo, strengthens the United States security 
     interests for long-term strategic competition;
       (10) the European Deterrence Initiative, through 
     investments to increase United States military presence, 
     bolster exercises and training, enhance pre-positioning of 
     equipment, improve infrastructure, and build partner 
     capacity, and investments toward such efforts by NATO allies 
     and other allies and partners, remain critical to ensuring 
     collective defense in the future;
       (11) the United States should--
       (A) continue to support efforts by NATO allies to replace 
     Soviet-era military systems and equipment with systems that 
     are interoperable among NATO members; and
       (B) work with NATO allies and other allies and partners to 
     build permanent mechanisms to strengthen supply chains, 
     enhance supply chain security, and fill supply chain gaps, 
     including in critical sectors such as defense, energy, and 
     health;
       (12) the United States and NATO allies should--
       (A) continue--
       (i) to carry out key initiatives to enhance readiness, 
     military mobility, and national resilience in support of 
     NATO's ongoing COVID-19 pandemic response efforts;
       (ii) to collaborate on ways to enhance collective security, 
     with a focus on emerging and revolutionary technologies such 
     as quantum computing, artificial intelligence, fifth 
     generation telecommunications networks, and machine learning; 
     and
       (iii) to build on recent progress in achieving defense 
     spending goals agreed to at the 2014 Wales Summit and 
     reaffirmed at the 2016 Warsaw Summit and the 2021 Brussels 
     Summit, and to build consensus to invest in the full range of 
     defense capabilities necessary to deter and defend against 
     potential adversaries; and
       (B) expand cooperation efforts on cybersecurity issues to 
     prevent adversaries and criminals from compromising critical 
     systems and infrastructure; and
       (13) [the United States should] encourage the development 
     of a new NATO strategic concept that addresses the threats to 
     NATO that have emerged since NATO's last strategic concept 
     was published in 2010, including--
       (A) a militarily resurgent Russia Federation, which is 
     engaged in conflicts in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and the 
     Middle East;
       (B) the expansionist ambitions of the People's Republic of 
     China, which increasingly threaten the economic and political 
     integrity and physical security of NATO members; and
       (C) transnational threats from rogue entities, such as 
     extremist terrorist groups and criminal hacker groups.

     response plans;
       (ii) laws, policies, or practices that restrict or preclude 
     treatment of vulnerable populations at public hospitals and

     extraordinary measures during public health emergencies to 
     halt the spread of disease, including closing businesses and 
     public events, limiting access to public spaces, and 
     restricting the movement of people;
       (B) certain foreign governments have taken measures in 
     response to COVID-19 that violate the human rights of their 
     citizens without clear public health justification, oversight 
     measures, or sunset provisions;

[[Page S8166]]

       (C) governments using the COVID-19 pandemic as a pretext 
     for repression have undermined democratic institutions, 
     debilitated institutions for transparency and public 
     integrity, quashed legitimate dissent, and attacked 
     journalists, civil society organizations, activists, 
     independent voices, and vulnerable and marginalized 
     populations, including refugees and migrants, with far-
     reaching consequences that will extend beyond the current 
     crisis;
       (D) foreign governments should take immediate steps to 
     release from prison all arbitrarily detained United States 
     citizens and political prisoners who may be at increased risk 
     for contracting or suffering from complications from COVID-
     19;
       (E) COVID-19 threatens to roll back decades of progress for 
     women and girls, disproportionately affecting women 
     economically, educationally, and with respect to health, 
     while also leading to alarming rises in gender based 
     violence; and
       (F) during and after the pandemic, the Department of State 
     and USAID should directly, and through nongovernmental 
     organizations or international organizations, provide 
     assistance and implement programs that support democratic 
     institutions, civil society, free media, and the advancement 
     of internationally recognized human rights.

       (A) Program priorities.--Amounts made available for each of 
     the fiscal years 2022 through 2026 to carry out the purposes

     (22 U.S.C. 2151 and 2151-1), including programs to support 
     democratic institutions, human rights defenders, civil 
     society, and freedom of the press, should be targeted, to the 
     extent feasible, toward civil society organizations in 
     countries in which emergency government measures taken in 
     response to the COVID-19 pandemic have violated 
     internationally recognized human rights.
       (B) Eligible organizations.--Civil society organizations 
     operating in countries in which emergency government measures 
     taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic violated 
     internationally recognized human rights shall be eligible to

     sections 101 and 102 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 
     for each of the fiscal years 2022 through 2026, for--
       (i) programs designed to strengthen and support civil 
     society, human rights defenders, freedom of association, and 
     the freedom of the press;
       (ii) programs to restore democratic institutions; and
       (iii) peacebuilding and conflict prevention to address the 
     impacts of COVID-19 on social cohesion, public trust, and 
     conflict dynamics by adapting existing programs or investing 
     in new ones.
       (C) Final report.--Not later than 180 days after the date 
     of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall 
     submit a report to the appropriate congressional committees 
     that--
       (i) lists the countries whose emergency measures limiting 
     internationally recognized human rights in a manner 
     inconsistent with the principles of limitation and derogation 
     remain in place;

       (I) security and intelligence surveillance measures 
     implemented by countries during the COVID-19 pandemic;
       (II) the extent to which such measures have been, or have 
     not been, rolled back; and
       (III) whether and how such measures impact internationally 
     recognized human rights; and

       (iv) includes a strategic plan by the Department of State 
     and USAID that addresses, through multilateral and bilateral 
     diplomacy and foreign assistance, the persistent issues 
     related to the restriction of internationally recognized 
     human rights in the COVID-19 response.

     and disinformation campaigns designed to promote confusion 
     and mistrust.
       (ii) Sense of congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
     RFE/RL should--

       (I) increase investigative reporting regarding the impacts

     media that have invested heavily in media distortion and 
     disinformation, including about COVID-19.
       (ii) Sense of congress.--It is the sense of Congress that

     operational challenges on the ground.

       (H) Open technology fund.--

     works to advance internet freedom in repressive environments 
     by supporting technologies that--

       (I) provide secure and uncensored access to USAGM's content 
     and the broader internet; and
       (II) counter attempts by authoritarian governments to 
     control the internet and restrict freedom online.

     the Open Technology Fund should--

       (I) support a broad range of technologies to respond to 
     increasingly aggressive and sophisticated censorship and 
     surveillance threats and provide more comprehensive and 
     tailored support to USAGM's networks; and

     improve the digital security of reporting operations and 
     journalists.

       (A) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (i) The Department of State's public diplomacy programs 
     build global networks that can address shared challenges, 
     such as the COVID-19 pandemic, including through exchanges of 
     researchers, public health experts, and scientists.

     countries--

       (I) are engaged in residency or fellowship training at 
     approximately 750 hospitals throughout the United States, the 
     majority of whom are serving in States that have been the 
     hardest hit by COVID-19; and
       (II) throughout the pandemic, have served on the front 
     lines of the medical workforce and in United States 
     university laboratories researching ways to detect and treat 
     the virus.

       (B) Visa processing briefing.--Not later than 30 days after

       (i) Finding.--Congress finds that since the beginning of 
     the COVID-19 pandemic, publications, websites, and platforms

     including falsely blaming the United States for the disease.
       (ii) Sense of congress.--It is the sense of Congress that

     expose and counter state and non-state-sponsored 
     disinformation related to COVID-19, the origins of COVID-19, 
     and COVID-19 vaccinations.
       (i) Findings and Sense of Congress Regarding the United 
     States International Development Finance Corporation.--
       (1) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (A) The COVID-19 pandemic is causing a global economic 
     recession, as evidenced by the global economic indicators 
     described in subparagraphs (B) through (D).
       (B) The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development 
     determined that the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the global 
     economy into recession in 2020 on a scale that has not been 
     witnessed since the 1930s.
       (C) Developed countries are expected to experience a 
     relatively more significant rebound in gross domestic product 
     growth during 2021 than is expected to be experienced in 
     developing countries, leading to concerns about a further 
     expansion in the gap between rich and poor countries, 
     particularly if this trend continues into 2022.
       (D) Global markets have suffered losses ranging between 5 
     percent and over 10 percent since the beginning of the 
     pandemic. While markets are recovering in 2021, global job 
     losses and unemployment rates remain high, with--
       (i) approximately 33,000,000 labor hours lost globally (13 
     per cent of the total hours lost) due to outright 
     unemployment; and
       (ii) an estimated additional 81,000,000 labor hours lost 
     due to inactivity or underemployment.
       (E) Given the prolonged nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, 
     African finance ministers have requested continued efforts to 
     provide--
       (i) additional liquidity;
       (ii) better market access;
       (iii) more concessional resources; and
       (iv) an extension in the Debt Service Suspension Initiative 
     established by the Group of 20.
       (2) Sense of congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (A) even when markets begin to recover in the future, it is 
     likely that access to capital will be especially challenging 
     for developing countries, which still will be struggling with 
     the containment of, and recovery from, the COVID-19 pandemic;
       (B) economic uncertainty and the inability of individuals 
     and households to generate income are major drivers of 
     political instability and social discord, which create 
     conditions for insecurity;
       (C) it is in the security and economic interests of the 
     United States to assist in the economic recovery of 
     developing countries that are made more vulnerable and 
     unstable from the public health and economic impacts of the 
     COVID-19 pandemic;
       (D) United States foreign assistance and development 
     finance institutions should seek to blunt the impacts of a 
     COVID-19 related economic recession by supporting investments 
     in sectors critical to maintaining economic stability and 
     resilience in low and middle income countries;
       (E) the need for the United States International 
     Development Finance Corporation's support for advancing 
     development outcomes in less developed countries, as mandated 
     by the Better Utilization of Investments Leading to 
     Development Act of 2018 (22 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.), is critical 
     to ensuring lasting and resilient economic growth in light of 
     the COVID-19 pandemic's exacerbation of economic hardships 
     and challenges;
       (F) The United States International Development Finance 
     Corporation should adjust its view of risk versus return by 
     taking smart risks that may produce a lower rate of financial 
     return, but produce significant development outcomes in 
     responding to the economic effects of COVID-19;
       (G) to mitigate the economic impacts of the COVID-19 
     recession, the United States International Development 
     Finance Corporation should use its resources and authorities, 
     among other things--
       (i) to ensure loan support for small- and medium-sized 
     enterprises;
       (ii) to offer local currency loans to borrowers for working 
     capital needs;
       (iii) to create dedicated financing opportunities for new 
     ``customers'' that are experiencing financial hardship due to 
     the COVID-19 pandemic; and
       (iv) to work with other development finance institutions to 
     create co-financing facilities to support customers 
     experiencing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
       (j) Sense of Congress Regarding International Cooperation 
     to Prevent and Respond to Future Pandemics.--It is the sense 
     of Congress that--
       (1) global pandemic preparedness and response requires 
     international and regional cooperation and action;
       (2) the United States should lead efforts in multilateral 
     fora, such as the Group of 7, the Group of 20, and the United 
     Nations, by collaborating and cooperating with other 
     countries and international and regional organizations, 
     including the World Health Organization and other key 
     stakeholders, to implement international strategies, tools, 
     and agreements to better prevent, detect, and respond to 
     future infectious disease threats before they become 
     pandemics; and
       (3) the United States should enhance and expand 
     coordination and collaboration among the relevant Federal 
     departments and agencies, the Food and Agriculture 
     Organization of the United Nations, the World Health 
     Organization, and the World Organization for Animal Health, 
     to advance a One Health approach toward preventing, 
     detecting, and responding to zoonotic threats in the human-
     animal interface.
