TheU.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations supported the resolution, which blames the illegal attempt of occupation of Crimea by Russia. The Ukrainian embassy in the USA posted this on Facebook.
According to the diplomats, the Senate confirms its position, which states that Crimea remains a part ofthe sovereign territory of Ukraine. Itclaims that the U.S. policy should aim for preventing any attempts to change the status, the demographic map or political nature of Crimea.
The resolution blames cases of human rights abuse in Crimea and puts the legal responsibility on Russia over the entire period, as long as the illegal Russian occupation of the peninsula continues.

The senators urged the U.S. government to act within its authority along with the sanctions against Russia, and welcomed the future efforts of the U.S. side, which encourage the EU to impose the extra sanctions related to Crimea's annexation.
Russia annexed Crimea in February 2014; the Russian troops whohad no insignia on their uniforms captured governmental buildings and militarybases. Neither Ukraine nor most of the Western governments recognized the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula, describing it as illegal.
