Collective weakness in the U.S. and Europe provokes the Russian Federation aggression, writes U.S. Senator John Sidney McCain in his article V.
Senator, first time not calling for sending Ukraine weapons to combat militias which, in his opinion, supports Moscow, tried to convince the US and Europe "to recognize the failure of the Minsk agreements" and to do more to respond to " aggression revanchist Russia."
According to McCain, last week He together with 2 other U.S. senators met with volunteers from the Ukrainian battalions within the East of Ukraine. During this trip, He somehow found that it was the militia as if incessantly violated the ceasefire.
"They (Ukrainian volunteers - approx. Ed) I understand the appeal: the agreement to stop the fire with Russia - it is a fiction, and the support of the United States to deter Russian aggression vital " - said McCain. In the same article He said that about sending us troops to Ukraine in the process of this trip no one asked for. Ukrainians just hope North America will reopen a "stock of democracy "that" so many times helped free people to protect themselves before, " wrote the Senator.
According to McCain, Obama " was wrong ", when explained its reluctance to arm the Kiev, because it " will further provoke Putin." The Senator believes that the Russian President provokes not this, but "the weakness of collective response" in the U.S. and Europe.
McCain writes that armed solutions to the conflict situation in Ukraine, however, there is a military way to achieve a political solution. He called the Russian Federation "strong, powerful in military terms, by country, as if hostile to U.S. interests, and world order," American leaders tried to save after the Second world war.
John Sidney McCain many times aggressive spoken in Russia, and accused the President of the United States and European politicians in the wrong, from his point of view, reactions to the Ukrainian conflict. Before this month, speaking on a radio broadcast of John Catsimatidis The Cats Roundtable, McCain called the decision not to provide arms to Ukraine one of the most shameful chapters in American history.
