US Congress House of Representatives adopted a bipartisan resolution on support of the countries of Eastern Europe and NATO. This was reported by the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States on Facebook.

"The document, in particular, condemns the unconcealed, large-scale and continuing violation by the Russian Federation of the Helsinki principles regarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," the report said.

The resolution also supports keeping sanctions imposed by the US against the Russian Federation in connection with occupying Crimea - until the restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty over the peninsula.

In addition, a document notes a need to continue sanctions against Russia, which require full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

As it was reported earlier, the fifth US Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Ukraine and Director of the Atlantic Council Analytical Center John Herbst in an interview spoke about the changes in the policy of Donald Trump and Ukraine's prospects on the way to NATO.

“If Ukraine is not part of NATO, then Russia will continue its aggression towards Ukraine. Such statements were made recently. And that's why I think that such an idea - joining NATO, is extremely good, but it's very difficult to predict how long it will take and how long the modernization process will last before Ukraine joins NATO,” he said.
