United States Senator from Arizona John McCain has once again confirmed that he supports state sovereignty of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea considers illegal.
“Crimea is part of Ukraine, it was recognized under the Budapest Memorandum. Ukraine is an independent state, which has been invaded. And it’s unwarrantable to watch acceding to aggression and violation of solemn agreements by Russia that would only encourage further misbehaviour,” the Senator says.
Earlier in the interview, McCain said that the US Congress will not support any agreement that could harm Ukraine.
Earlier, presidential candidate of France Marine Le Pen made a scandalous statement, calling the Russian annexation of Crimea legal. Le Pen has repeatedly stated reluctance of France to see Ukraine in the EU and blamed the European Union for the military conflict in Ukraine.
