You're reading: New leaders in Washington search for new leaders in Ukraine

That very Senate gave birth to a
very tough resolution on Ukraine in September last year, which called on the
authorities to release political prisoners and threatened them with potential
sanctions.

Kerry’s move to the State Department
can have profound consequences for the Ukrainian authorities. The Senate
resolution called on the U.S. State
Department to introduce visa sanctions against those who stifle democracy in
our country – primarily those who violated human rights and were involved in
the imprisonment of Yulia Tymoshenko and other opposition members.

This document is not a directive for
the State Department, but there are grounds to expect that Kerry will take into
consideration the recommendation which effectively appeared with his blessing.
This is especially likely considering that events in Ukraine are still causing
a lot of worries and interest among the American establishment.
