U.S. Senators Working to Sanction Russian Officials for Ukraine Hostilities
Politico – Top senators are crafting a package that includes both direct aid to Ukraine and targeted sanctions in an effort to rapidly provide assistance to the new, pro-Western government in Kiev.
The measure was described Monday by two aides not authorized to speak publicly because the legislation is still being negotiated. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee was scheduled to mark up the bill on Tuesday afternoon, but a Senate aide said Monday evening that the markup would not occur as senators continued to negotiate provisions.
