On New Year’s Eve, US Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Amy Klobuchar visited Ukrainian Naval Infantry (Marines) in Shyrokyne. This was on the front lines of the Donbas War. They urged Ukraine to ignore its obligations under the 2015 Minsk Agreement and take the “offense” against Russia. The Marines they spoke to are part of the 36th Naval Infantry Brigade, who are now surrendering to the Russian army in Mariupol.
The three senators were also interviewed by the Ukrainian branch of the US State Department’s media outlet RFE/RL. The CIA originally created this media outlet in 1949. In 1972, it was declassified that the CIA was behind it. Now RFE/RE is openly funded by the US State Department with $125 million US taxpayer dollars per year.
In this video clip, the three Senators claim that Russia “hacked” the US presidential election in 2016. This was a conspiracy theory for which zero evidence was ever found. They claim that Russia’s hacking of the US election is a trend that is also seen in European nations. They said France or Germany could be next.
The trio vows to continue US lethal aid for Ukraine with or without the support of Donald Trump. They advocate aggressive, confrontational posturing against Russia.
RFE/RL denounced Zelensky as a puppet of Ihor Kolomoiski in 2019 when he was campaigning for president as a peace candidate.
