The U.S. House of Representatives has passed resolution No. 447 "Supporting the democratic and European aspirations of the people of Ukraine, and their right to choose their own future free of intimidation and fear."
The resolution was approved by a majority of votes, with 381 Congressmen supporting the document, and two members of the Republican Party voting against it, Ukrinform reports.
The resolution, in particular, calls on the leadership of the United States and the European Union "to continue to work together to support a peaceful resolution to the crisis, and to continue to support the desire of millions of Ukrainian citizens for closer relations with Europe through the signing of an Association Agreement, as well as for a democratic future."
The document stresses the need for Ukraine to live up to its international obligations and respect and uphold the democratic rights of its citizens, and to bring to justice those responsible for violence against peaceful protesters, and to release and drop criminal charges against those detained for exercising their democratic rights.
