"A resolution condemning the attempts of the Russian Federation to meddle in the elections in Ukraine has been submitted to the U.S. Congress House of Representatives," the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA wrote on Facebook.

A bipartisan group of congressmen, including members of the Congress Ukrainian caucus headed by Pennsylvania State Congressman Brendan Boyle, has submitted a resolution to the House of Representatives expressing strong support for the right of the Ukrainian people to freely choose their leadership and determine their own future.

"The document expresses support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and strongly condemns attempts by the authorities of the Russian Federation and its agents to meddle in the elections in Ukraine, in particular by carrying out harmful cyber operations, and trying to influence public opinion through the Kremlin-controlled media and social networks," the embassy said.

In addition, congressmen urge the U.S. government to provide assistance to the Ukrainian government in efforts to protect the country's electoral system from cyber and other threats.
