Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., will be one of several U.S. senators traveling to Ukraine this week.
Hoeven previously called on Russia to “respect Ukraine’s sovereignty,” and said the U.S. and its allies should pursue economic and diplomatic sanctions against its former Cold War rival unless it withdraws from Ukraine.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is leading the trip. The delegation also includes Sens. Richard Durbin, D-Ill.; John Barrasso, R-Wyo.; Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; Christopher Murphy, D-Conn.; Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., according to reports.
