A video has surfaced online in which warmongers John McCain and Lindsey Graham are caught meeting with the Ukraine military, encouraging them to launch an offensive against Russia and restart hostilities, all the while describing Russia as the “aggressor” that must “pay a heavier price.”
Lindsey Graham delivers an incendiary speech in the video, egging on the Ukranian troops to re-start hostilities with Russia.
“Your fight is our fight, 2017 will be the year of offence. All of us will go back to Washington and we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price.“
John McCain was no less provocative:
“I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win.”

Seems like President Trump was right when he singled these two Senators out as “warmongers looking for ways to start WW3.”
Inside Russia reports: In the past few days, renewed heavy fighting has broken out in Ukraine’s Donbass region between government troops (and allied militias, though they are supposed to be nationalized) and the separatists.
Naturally both sides claim the other started it, but it does not take a genius to see who has something to gain from renewed hostilities, and who has nothing at all to gain.
Russia and Vladimir Putin derive no benefit from an armed conflict on Russia’s border, one which Russia is being blamed and punished for by Europe and the United States. And it was Moscow who forced the separatists to the table at Minsk, just when they had the upper hand on the battlefield following Kiev’s massive defeat in the Debaltsevo Pocket.
Now, with the coming to power of Donald Trump as president of the United States, the putschists in Kiev have lost their principal sponsor. Trump has made clear his intention to prioritize relations with Russia – and European statesmen such as leading French presidential candidate François Fillon have begun to echo him. Germany is losing enthusiasm for this headache.
The Ukrainian government is about to find itself isolated with no friend either to the East or to the West.
Enter the malevolent minions of mischief, US senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
The dastardly duo made a trip to the Donbass front line just after the new year, where they gave incendiary speeches egging on Ukrainian troops to restart hostilities.
We do not know what else McCain and Graham promised Ukraine out of sight of the cameras. But lo and behold, within weeks of this trip, Kiev started a new round of shooting.
The only possible motive for this outbreak of hostilities is a desperate attempt to regain the lagging sympathy of the world – a world long tired of Kiev’s crying wolf over “aggression” and looting billions of money intended to boost its economy. It is also another attempt to sabotage any US-Russian reconciliation.
John McCain and Lindsey Graham are two men totally bought and paid for by the military-security establishment. They serve the CIA and the Neocon ideologues who want to spread American influence by force and believe in provoking conflict where necessary.
