Lew Urges Russia to Pursue Diplomatic Solution in Ukraine

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew urged Russia to pursue a diplomatic solution to the situation in Ukraine, especially as the country moves forward with presidential elections next month.

“We will continue to stand with the Ukrainian people,” Lew said during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing in Washington today. “That’s why we are united in our effort to impose costs on Russia for its unlawful and provocative acts.”
