US lawmakers call for tighter sanctions on Russia

Published: 04.21.14, 08:18 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - Two members of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee called Sunday for tougher Western sanctions against Russia to include its petrochemical and banking industries and warned that Moscow thus far has ignored US and European efforts to persuade it to back off its confrontation with Ukraine.

 

"We've helped in many ways to create the problems that exist there. And to leave them alone in the manner that we're leaving them alone to me is just unconscionable," Sen. Bob Corker, the committee's senior Republican member, said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

 

"I don't think Putin really believes we're going to punish them in that way," he said. (AP)
