U.S. Congress threatens Ukraine with sanctions

It is said in the resolution presented by Congressman Eliot Engel.

 "The House of Representatives is urging the Ukrainian government to make the people responsible for using force against peaceful protesters account for it and to acquit those arrested for using their democratic rights,” RIA Novosti quotes the document. “We are urging the USA and EU to make it clear that those who allowed using force or used force against peaceful demonstrators will have to bear responsibility for it.”

The resolution is urging the Ukrainian government and opposition to be reserved and conduct a dialogue to heal the rift peacefully.

"The U.S. House of Representatives may consider imposing target sanctions against those who ordered to use force against peaceful protesters if the violence continues,” the document says.
