In the first House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing since the invasion of Crimea, lawmakers from both parties on Thursday upped the pressure on the Obama administration to take a tougher stance against Russia.
Members of the panel welcomed the White House’s decision to ban visas and freeze the assets of people involved in the Crimean takeover. But they urged the administration to consider a slew of stronger options, from a U.N. resolution to inviting Ukraine into NATO to declaring Russian maneuvers an act of war.
