On November 25, Russia seized 3 Ukrainian ships along with 24 sailors, whom they are now holding in custody.
This unprovoked act of aggression has been condemned by NATO, all members of the G7 states, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. But conspicuously NOT by Trump, who wants to wait to discuss the matter with his pal Putin at the upcoming G20 summit. Congress should act without the President and send a strong message that unprovoked aggression by one state against another will not be tolerated. One way to do this is via the DASKA (Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression) Act, a bipartisan bill which reaffirms support for NATO and mandates the imposition of more effective sanctions against the Russian Federation.
Contact your Senators and ask them urgently to support S.3336 the Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act.
