As informs Censor.NET and with reference to Interfax-Ukraine, the newspaper The Washington Post writes about it.

The authors of the document were representatives of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Republican Cory Gardner and Democrat Tim Cain, chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Forces, Republican John McCain, and also high-ranking Democrat Jack Reed.
