UKRAINE: US Senators Visit Troops on Front Line in Eastern Ukraine December 302:07
While on a trip to Ukraine on December 30, GOP Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham and Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar denounced the alleged Russian hacking of Democratic Party email accounts in the run-up to the US presidential election. Speaking to the US-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in Ukraine, the senators called for tougher sanctions against Russia in response to the allegations. The senators traveled with Ukrainian President Petro Poreshenko to Shyrokyne, a Baltic sea village in Donetsk Oblast, south of Russian-backed, separatist-held Donetsk, for a photo opportunity with Ukrainian soldiers. Both GOP senators have said they will work to impose even stronger sanctions against Russia, in contrast to President-elect Trump, who has said the US should ?move on? from the issue. McCain and Graham were both vocal critics of Trump during the campaign, although McCain supported Trump until early October reports showed that Trump had made comments in which he boasted about sexually assaulting women.
