Senator John McCain spent his New Year’s Eve with Ukrainian troops in the village of Shyrokine, expressing his anti-Putin position.

“We stand w/them in their fight against #Putin’s aggression,” McCain wrote in one tweet.

McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Amy Klobuchar have been visiting Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Georgia, all countries bordering Russia whilst also meeting Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

McCain and Graham also emphasized their upmost support for the latest string of sanctions on Russia that has seen 35 diplomats expelled from the U.S.

“The retaliatory measures announced by the Obama Administration today are long overdue,” the two Republican senators said. “But ultimately, they are a small price for Russia to pay for its brazen attack on American democracy. We intend to lead the effort in the new Congress to impose stronger sanctions on Russia.”

Despite heavy pressure, Putin declined to expell any U.S. diplomats which drew praise from incoming President, Donald Trump.

Graham told RadioFreeEurope/Radio Liberty in an interview in Kiev on Thursday that Congress would place tougher sanctions on “Putin and his inner circle.”

“We’re going to do two things: We’re going after Putin harder with tougher sanctions and we’re going to be more helpful to our friends, like here in Ukraine,” Graham said in the interview.

There seems to be nothing the moron McCain gets right. He loves his photo opportunities with people who have given up on human values.

As a US-Navy pilot, he managed to crash 5 aircraft.
Some consider that acting stupid, he even, by shaking the following F-4 by doing a wet start with his A-4, the shock triggered the Zuni rocket that blew on the USS Forestall bridge nearly sinking the ship and killing 134! BTW, he was the to be moved from the ship by a chopper, hey, daddy’s was the US Navy’s boss for Pacific Ocean at the time… Some also say that if he hadn’t been removed, the ship’s crew would have lynched him…

I wonder how Trump feels about this…. If he’s willing to fix relations with Russia, he may have to tell McCain and his likes to listen or get thrown out. Ironically I recall Trump ridiculing his “heroism”.

If Trump is really in to drain the swamp, McCain may find himself in serious troubles… Patriot Act may make him fucked by the long d**k of the law…

McCain speaking in Mariupol about Ukraine-Russia war: “We will send the invaders back to where they came from”

He thinks himself as being POTUS or what?
Or maybe is he speaking about the neo-nazi militias that came to Ukraine to help the US backed coup (I doubt of it, LOL)
