Democrat Senator Chris Murphy and Republican Senators John McCain and Ron Johnson have included Bulgaria in their Eastern European trip later this week.
They will also make a short stop in Romania and will attend the Wroclaw Global Forum in Poland, as the Bristol Press reports.
Chris Murphy, who is to receive a Medal of Honor by Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski for his work on the Visa Waiver Program, is quoted as saying that Ukraine will be a key issue during the trip.
The three will meet representatives of Parliaments in all three countries and will reaffirm the US commitment to helping Eastern Europe in case of Russian aggression.
Senator McCain, who was a 2008 Republican presidential candidate, is known as one of the most outspoken critics of Russia and one of the staunchest supporters of military measures as a means to solve conflicts.
Their visit to the region comes after US President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that it could set aside USD 1 B to additionally boost its military presence in Europe.
