The U.S. bipartisan group of senators presented a Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act (DASKA) of 2019 to the Senate aimed at enhancement of economic, political and diplomatic pressure upon Russia, the press office of Bob Menendez reported.

“The legislation establishes a comprehensive policy response to better position the U.S. government to address Kremlin aggression by creating new policy offices on cyber defenses and sanctions coordination.  The bill stands up for NATO and prevents the President from pulling the U.S. out of the Alliance without a Senate vote.  It also increases sanctions pressure on Moscow for its interference in democratic processes abroad and continued aggression against Ukraine,” the message says.
