McCain demands from Obama to say what costs Russia is to face for invasion of Ukraine

Publication time: 2 March 2014, 02:42
During an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, US Ambassador Samantha Power demanded that Russia stopped intervention in Ukraine, and international observers were immediately sent to the crisis zone.

According to her, "military intervention has no legal grounds".

Ms Power called the decision of the Russia's illegal "federation council", approving sending the Russian troops to Ukraine, "dangerous and destabilizing".

Meanwhile, sen. John McCain, who has always openly criticized Barack Obama for lack of attention to the Ukrainian issue, issued a statement on Russia's intervention in Ukraine. He points out:

- I am deeply concerned that Russia’s ongoing military intervention in Crimea may soon expand to eastern Ukraine. Yesterday, President Obama said that Russia would face ‘costs’ if it intervened militarily in Ukraine. It is now essential for the President to articulate exactly what those costs will be and to take steps urgently to impose them.

Russian use of force in Ukraine is a clear violation of its obligations Russia to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, in particular, entered into in accordance with the Budapest Memorandum of 1994.

Russia’s use of force in Ukraine is unfolding in clear violation of Russia’s own commitments to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, including under the 1994 Budapest Memorandum.

None of us should be under any illusion about what President Putin is capable of doing in Ukraine, especially now that he has requested, and the Russian Duma has approved, the deployment of Russian troops, not just in Crimea but in the country of Ukraine.

Every moment that the United States and our allies fail to respond sends the signal to President Putin that he can be even more ambitious and aggressive in his military intervention in Ukraine.

There is a range of serious options at our disposal at this time without the use of military force. I call on President Obama to rally our European and NATO allies to make clear what costs Russia will face for its aggression and to impose those consequences without further delay.
