The U.S. Senate adopted the resolution in support for the Ukrainian people and its right for independent and democratic future. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt wrote this on Twitter.
The resolution, which draft was submitted to consideration of the American lawmakers on December 18, consists of appeal to avoid violence and carrying out of dialogue, Radio “Svoboda” reports.
The U.S. Senate “condemns the decision by Ukrainian authorities to use violence against peaceful demonstrators on November 30, December 1, and December 11, 2013, and calls for those responsible to be swiftly brought to justice and all detained nonviolent demonstrators to be immediately released”.
The U.S. Senate also “notes that in the event of further state violence against peaceful protestors, the President and Congress should consider whether to apply targeted sanctions, including visa bans and asset freezes, against individuals responsible for ordering or carrying out the violence”.
