Resolution Condemns Russian Aggression Against Ukraine

Share this post

A resolution passed the US Senate on Tuesday condemning the recent Russian military aggression against Ukraine. The resolution was introduced by Indiana US Senator Dan Coats and Illinois US Senator Dick Durbin, demanding the immediate release of Ukraine security forces in Crimea and that failure to do so, or any additional military action against other areas, will lead to swift and significant consequences in Russian relations with the US. It also urges President Obama to use economic and diplomatic measures, as well as proposing that G-8 nations suspend Russia and that NATO suspend the NATO-Russian Council, along with their military and diplomatic representation in NATO. The resolution also urges governments in Europe take similar actions and calls for FIFA leaderships to reconsider allowing World Cup 2018 matches in Russia.
Meanwhile two Russian legislators are calling for FIFA to ban the US from the World Cup soccer tournament.
