A new bill is registered in the US House of Representatives. This document defines the US position on the illegal Russian occupation of the Crimea, strengthens sanctions against it and offers innovative methods to assist Ukraine, reported "Voice of America".
US lawmakers Eliot Engel (Democrat from New York) and Adam Kinzinger (Republican from Illinois) reported on Friday that they proposed the bill, which deals with the current crisis in Ukraine. They were joined by a group of 14 other legislators, including a bipartisan leadership of Ukrainian "caucus" in the House of Representatives, who proposed the Act of Ukraine of stability and democracy (STAND).
The authors of the Bill write that the Russian aggression has undermined the sovereignty of Ukraine and at the same time threatens US long-term investment in free and peaceful Europe.
