McCain: Putin Does Not Think U.S. Will Take Action in Ukraine Crisis
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) reacted to the developing crisis in Ukraine. A Kiev official says 2,000 Russian troops have entered Crimea, with U.S. officials reporting ‘evidence of air and maritime movement into and out of Crimea by Russian forces.’
McCain told Neil Cavuto the situation is predictable. He said Russian President Vladimir Putin has little regard for the United States. “We are seeing an intervention that is deeply disturbing and alarming, and I don’t think he thinks that the United States is going to do much.”
The senator said there has to be sanctions and called for German involvement. “It does not mean starting a Cold War; it does not mean military confrontation,” he stressed.
