Georgia in U.S. House Resolution Condemning Russia’s ‘Aggression’ Against Neighbors
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 5 Dec.'14 / 11:47

The U.S. House of Representatives passed on December 4 with 411 votes to 10 a resolution condemning Russia’s “continuing political, economic, and military aggression” against Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.

The resolution, which was sponsored by Republican Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger, says that “Russia continues to station military forces in the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and is implementing measures intended to progressively integrate these regions into the Russian Federation.”

It says that Russia continues to subject Georgia “to political and military intimidation, economic coercion, and other forms of aggression in an effort to establish its control of the country and to prevent Georgia from establishing closer relations with the European Union and the United States.”

The resolution calls on Russia “to remove its military forces and military equipment from the territory of Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, and to end its political, military, and economic support of separatist forces.”

The resolution calls on the White House to provide Ukraine with “defense articles, services, and training”, as well as to cooperate with partners in Europe and other countries “ to impose visa bans, targeted asset freezes, sectoral sanctions, and other measures” on Russian leadership with the goal of “compelling it to end its violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, to remove its military forces and equipment from Ukrainian territory, and to end its support of separatist and paramilitary forces.”

The resolution also affirms support to the right of Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova “to exercise their sovereign rights within their internationally recognized borders free from outside intervention and to conduct their foreign policy in accordance with their determination of the best interests of their peoples.”
