US Republican Senator John McCain and the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services answered the question of US President Donald Trump about Crimea and called to give Ukraine lethal weapon. This was stated by McCain on his Twitter page.
This way he answered Trump’s question if Obama was too soft to Russia when it annexed Crimea.
“Yes, he was too soft - let's take a different course together: give defensive lethal assistance to Ukraine and keep sanctions on Russia,” McCain wrote.
Earlier it was reported that US will support build-up of Ukraine’s military potential. The first deputy head of Pentagon Robert Work met with the Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin.
