Senator Wicker: Russia's Actions In Ukraine Have 'Familiar Ring From 1930s'

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker described Russia's actions in Ukraine as having a "familiar ring from the 1930s." In an interview with RFE/RL's Arifa Kazimova on June 30 in Baku, he said it is unacceptable for Russia to violate the borders of a sovereign nation "under the guise of protecting ethnic Russians." In March 2014, Wicker led a bipartisan group of senators that introduced a resolution condemning Russia's annexation Crimea. (RFE/RL's Azerbaijani Service)
