McCain Attacks Merkel for Refusal to Supply Lethal Weapons to Ukraine / Sputnik International


The US Republican Senator John McCain has criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel for not yielding to supplying arms to Ukraine.

The politician accused her of indifference towards the Ukrainian people suffering the consequences of a conflict in the southeast of the country.

“One might think that she does not know or does not care that people are being slaughtered in Ukraine,” the German media quotes McCain as saying.

The Senator’s words, coming ahead of Merkel’s visit to Washington on February 9, caused heavy criticism back in Germany.

On Thursday McCain, who is now attending the Security Conference in Munich, led about a dozen Republican and Democratic senators back in the US pressing President Obama to send arms to help Kiev defend itself against what he described as a Russian-backed separatist movement.

On Friday night Germany directly rebuffed the US over its appeal.

German ministers said that allowing US arms to be used in Ukraine would “pour oil onto the flames.”

German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen warned against sending arms, saying this would act as a ‘fire accelerant.’

    Pardon me but I think someone needs to put McCain DOWN. As in euthanize for rabies.

    I wish that demented old Manchurian candidate would retire.

      The old saying “Wish in one hand and poop in the other, which will fill the quickest” BTW, what is really in the poop hand is McCain
