US Congress demands Russia withdraw, mulls Ukraine aid

US-UKRAINE-DIPLOMACY-PSAKIThe US Congress demanded Russia immediately withdraw from Ukraine and urged US President Barack Obama to impose punitive economic sanctions on Moscow. The Senate expressed its support for Ukraine by passing strongly worded resolutions, using tough language against Russia and urging it be suspended from the Group of 8 world powers. The non-binding resolution, passed by unanimous consent, called for targeted economic sanctions to “compel President Vladimir Putin to remove his armed forces from Ukrainian territory and return that territory to full Ukrainian sovereign control.” The measure also called on world soccer’s governing body FIFA to reconsider its decision to hold the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
