US Senators To Try To Pass Russian Sanctions Bill
According to Reuters, U.S. senators from both parties on Wednesday will introduce a bill that would impose sanctions on Russia’s banking and energy sectors as a punishment for interference in U.S. elections and aggression against Ukraine.
The sanctions are to be introduced by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.
The two lawmakers backed a similar measure last year which failed to pass.
Menendez's office says this one is a tougher version.
