WASHINGTON--Republican Senators announce legislation to provide a strategic U.S. response to Russian aggression in Europe.

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014 would:

Impose immediate, tough sanctions against Russia based on its actions in Crimea and eastern Ukraine;

Authorize the President to provide $100 million worth of direct military assistance to Ukraine, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons and small arms, based on a needs and capabilities assessment of the Ukrainian armed forces;

Provide authority for exports of U.S. natural gas to all WTO members, including key countries in Europe, and provides support to encourage the U.S. private sector to invest in energy projects in Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova;

Provide Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia with major non-NATO ally status to facilitate their access to military equipment, and expand U.S. and NATO military exercises and training with key non-NATO states; and

Prohibit U.S. recognition of the annexation of Crimea.

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014 was introduced today by U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, (R-Tenn)., and cosponsored by Sens. Cornyn, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) Dan Coats (R-Ind.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and John Hoeven (R-N.D.).
