WASHINGTON: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Democrats are considering removing a major roadblock preventing Congress from passing legislation authorizing sanctions on Russia and providing aid to Ukraine.

Democrats had wanted the measure to include a provision enhancing the International Monetary Fund’s lending capacity, but Republicans were opposed. Reid says he feels strongly about IMF reform, but it’s important to get the legislation done to assist Ukraine and hit Russia with sanctions over its military incursion into Crimea.

Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2-ranked Democrat, said senators of both parties were working on a compromise and the Senate could vote on an altered bill as early as Tuesday evening.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday passed its own measure without any reference to the IMF.
