John McCain and Lindsay Graham accused the world leaders in legitimizing the dismemberment of a sovereign nation in Europe


On February 17, 2015, U.S. senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham made the statment on developments in Ukraine. It was published on the official website of the senator John McCain.

The senators blamed Chancellor of Germany, the President of France and the President of the USA in legitimizing the dismemberment of Ukraine:

“The Chancellor of Germany and the President of France, with the support of the President of the United States, are legitimizing the dismemberment of a sovereign nation in Europe for the first time in seven decades.”

The senators also said about the situation with the violating the cease-fire by pro-Russian terrorists in town Debaltseve in Donetsk Region, Ukraine:

“It is inexcusable to adhere to a failed ceasefire agreement as Russia and its Ukrainian proxies escalate their uncompromising siege of Debaltseve.”

“Western leaders say there is no military solution to the conflict in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin clearly does not think so. He continues his aggression, and in the absence of greater Western support for Ukrainian forces, a Russian-imposed military solution is exactly what will continue to unfold in Ukraine, just as it has in parts of Georgia and Moldova.”

Two influential Republicans call the Obama administration to more aggressive posture toward the war against pro-Russian forces in Eastern Ukraine:

“With more than 5,000 Ukrainians killed and many more wounded, it is long past time to provide defensive weapons to Ukraine and to impose additional sanctions and costs that can change Putin’s behavior, including the removal of Russia from the SWIFT financial system. President Obama should do so immediately, rather than hide behind a failed attempt to negotiate with an aggressor when conditions on the ground render diplomacy ineffective.”

As it is well known earlier John McCain has already criticised the Minsk agreements and underlined that the Russian President doesn’t want to reach peace in the conflict in Eastern Ukraine
