You're reading: Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry doubts that U.S. Senate resolution reflects opinion of all senators

The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine has expressed doubt that the recent resolution of the U.S. Senate on Ukraine reflects the positions of all the members of the U.S. Senate. 

“We doubt that this really is the opinion of the whole senate. We doubt that many of the members of the senate are even familiar with the text of this document,” director of the Foreign Ministry’s information policy department Oleh Voloshyn said at a briefing on Tuesday.

He said that according to the Foreign Ministry, the majority of the senators do not even know the nature of the document. At the same time, Kyiv does not question the legitimacy of the document in terms of the U.S. law, Voloshyn said.

As reported, on September 22, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution on Ukraine with a call for the immediate release of Tymoshenko and other political prisoners. The resolution also calls for the imposition of a visa ban against all officials responsible for Tymoshenko’s imprisonment.
