In a letter, House Speaker John Boehner and other lawmakers said Russia’s actions in Ukraine were a “grotesque violation of international law”.
They said that a recent truce had only consolidated rebel gains in the east.
Ukraine and the West accuse Russia of helping the rebels with weapons and soldiers – a claim Moscow denies.
Independent experts echo that accusation, but Russia insists that any Russians serving with the rebels are “volunteers”.
At least 6,000 people are believed to have been killed since the conflict in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions erupted last April, a month after Russia annexed Ukraine’s southern Crimea peninsula.
