President Poroshenko on U.S. sanctions: The price for aggression should grow

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has welcomed an important decision by the U.S. Congress on a new package of sanctions against Russia.

In a post on his Facebook page, President Poroshenko wrote: “An important decision of the U.S. Congress with strong bipartisan support regarding sanctions against Russia. The price of aggression should grow!”

As Ukrinform earlier reported, the lower chamber of the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly approved the bill with a new package of sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea.

The bill was supported by 419 members of the House of Representatives. Only three Republicans voted against the bill.
