WASHINGTON, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Senator Dan Coats of Indiana, of a group of U.S. officials and lawmakers whom Russia has banned an entry to its territory, has filed an amendment to the bill on assistance to Ukraine that stipulates the severing of business ties with Russia’s state corporation for trade of defense products, Rosoboronexport.
Later this week, the Senate is expected to have voting on the destiny with the Russian company later this week.
The draft amendment also contains a proposal to take part in the contracts issued by the U.S. Administration for any U.S. or foreign company cooperating with Rosoboronexport.
Last week, five members of the House of Representatives also asked Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to suspend cooperation with Rosoboronexport.
Moscow and Washington have been conducting a number of projects related to the supplies of Russian Mi-17 helicopters to Afghanistan.
Senator Coats voiced indignation over the fact that Afghanistan’s President Khamid Karzai had expressed support for Russia’s actions in Crimea and he said that Karzai would have to purchase Russian helicopters for his own money, not for the one allocated by the U.S.
