Coats Among US Lawmakers Condemning Russia

Share this post

Seven nations say they will boycott the G-8 conference scheduled in Sochi in June ... as an answer to Russia's military moves in the Ukraine. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says maybe the G-8 ought to be reduced in number. Obviously that requires some cooperation from others. But there needs to be some consequence for the Russians.
Indiana US Senator Dan Coats today introduced a resolution calling on President Obama to isolate Russia through sanctions in order to protect Ukraine's sovereignty and urged the reconsideration to move the 2018 World Cup matches from Russia to a “more worthy” alternative country.  Illinois US Senator Dick Durbin says that he too is working on drafting a resolution to "condemn Russian aggression."
The US House has announced that it will quickly pass the administration's proposed one-billion dollar aid package for Ukraine.
