The US Senate passed a resolution supporting anti-Russian sanctions in the event of Russia's "invasion" of Ukraine. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the voting results.
It is noted that the bipartisan document came after reports that work on the bill had stalled. According to media reports, US senators believe that they will not have time to adopt the document before the “Russian attack”.
At the same time, the resolution is not binding, it should only warn Russia of serious consequences in the event of an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.
On this issue, the senators expressed a unanimous opinion. They called for continued economic and humanitarian support for Ukraine, as well as security assistance. In addition, lawmakers called on US President Joe Biden and his entourage to "act quickly" so that Kiev has everything it needs to defend against Russia.
Earlier, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during a briefing that the United States is considering sanctions against Vladimir Putin's inner circle.
