Led by McCain, the group includes Durbin, John Barrasso (R-WY), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Ron Johnson (R-WI), Christopher Murphy (D-CT), John Hoeven (R-ND), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).
McCain, who ran against Obama in 2008, said if he were president, he would have already given Ukraine all the military assistance they needed because, according to him, that is exactly what would stop Russian President Vladimir Putin from invading and violating Ukraine’s sovereignty. As reported by KyivPost:
“To make it happen, all the president has to do is order it tomorrow,” McCain said. “He can have it done tomorrow.”
