After his return home from Ukraine, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly voted today to aid the country and impose sanctions against Russia. The bill passed the Senate and now goes to the House.
Donnelly says Russia has blatantly violated another country’s sovereignty. He says he’s heard numerous accounts from government leaders to everyday citizens expressing concern about Russia’s illegal invasion into Crimea.
He says the proposed sanctions send a strong message that Russia should be punished for its actions.
