U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is part of a bipartisan group of lawmaker traveling to Ukraine this weekend, as the crisis intensifies over a Russian incursion into that nation.
Durbin and the delegation... including Republican Senator John McCain... will meet with the new Ukrainian government, which is seeking help from the U.S. after Russian forces entered Ukraine's Crimea region. Durbin says the, quote, "Russian aggression" is reminiscent of Soviet Union tactics during the Cold War.
The delegation is scheduled to return to the U.S. on Sunday.
