‘Russia’s repressions against Ukrainian citizens are unprecedented. We urge the member countries to increase pressure on the aggressor,’ reads the letter.

As 112 International reported, the U.S. kicked 35 Russian diplomats out of the country and imposed new sanctions against the Kremlin due to the cyber attacks on U.S. authorities during the presidential campaign. The Russian leadership promised retaliatory steps. U.S. senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham demand even tougher sanctions against Russia.
