US Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut is one of two members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee calling for the beefing up of western sanctions against Russia. Murphy and Bob Corker of Tennessee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that the sanctions should be directed at Russia’s petrochemical and banking industries.
