U.S. Senator Dan Coats says the nation needs to ratchet up economic pressure on Russia to punish its takeover of Ukraine‘s Crimean peninsula.
Coats has introduced legislation to cut off U.S. government purchases from a Russian state agency which handles the country‘s military exports.
The proposal is an amendment to a 150-million-dollar emergency aid bill for Ukraine.
