The Illinois Republican says he's introducing the bill along with Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, who is a Democrat.
They're adding the amendment to a Ukrainian aid package that's set to be considered by the chamber this week.
Kirk says in a statement that "Ukraine is a known hub for cybercrime." And he says the U.S. should work with the Ukrainian government "to create a framework of cooperation to deter, prevent and counter these cyber criminals."
