U.S. Senate calls on Ukrainian authorities to not use force against peaceful protesters, points to considering sanctions

08-01-2014 15:29

The U.S. Senate has passed a resolution calling on the Ukrainian authorities to refrain from using force against peaceful protesters and pointing to the possibility of considering sanctions in the event of further violence.

"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," reads the resolution posted on the website of the U.S. Congress. The resolution also states that the U.S. Senate "stands with the people of Ukraine and supports their sovereign right to chart an independent and democratic future for their country". The Senate also urged leaders in the United States and the European Union to continue working together actively to support a peaceful and democratic resolution to the current crisis in Ukraine.  In its resolution, the U.S. Senate also "encourages demonstrators and members of the opposition and civil society in Ukraine to continue avoiding the use of violence and engage in a dialogue of national reconciliation". "The Senate also calls on all political parties to refrain from hate speech or actions of an anti-Semitic or other character which further divide the Ukrainian people when they need to be united," reads the resolution. The senators condemned the crackdowns on peaceful protesters, calling for those responsible to be swiftly brought to justice and for all detained non-violent demonstrators to be immediately released.
