Sen. Rob Portman, R-Cincinnati, plans on visiting Ukraine next month to get a better understanding of Russia’s military involvement in eastern Ukraine.

In a conference call with Ohio reporters, the GOP senator said he does not have all of the trip’s details yet but plans on meeting with government officials and religious communities.

Portman met this week with General Philip M. Breedlove, NATO supreme Allied commander, to discuss some of the options the United States has in Ukraine.
