Russia Says US House Resolution ‘One Step’ Closer To ‘All-Out War’

An editorial from state-run broadcaster is saying that US House members have “brought the nation one step closer to all-out war with Russia” by passing House Resolution 758, which is now sitting on the Senate floor. House Resolution 758 didn’t get much media attention when it was passed Dec. 4, but in short, it says Russia has been backing rebels in Ukraine, is partially responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in July, and is backing the Syrian regime. It, however, doesn’t lay out any concrete steps in punishing Russia with sanctions, and it doesn’t have any references to any military intervention. According to the bill, it claims “the Russian Federation has subjected Ukraine to a campaign of political, economic, and military aggression for the purpose of establishing its domination over the country and progressively erasing its independence.” It adds that Russia’s backing of rebels in Ukraine violates a number of international provisions.
