Indiana 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon says economic sanctions against Russia should come first.

"I think sanctions should be very aggressive. I think we need to make sure that the Russians know that this is a serious situation. That we have allies in eastern Europe. That we will protect economically and if necessary with defensive capability to make sure they can defend themselves if they need to."

Congressman Bucshon says Russia controls the energy supply for eastern European countries. He says making American energy available to those countries would loosen Russia's grip on the region.
