"Putin understands only strength," – Senator McCain on possible "Kissinger plan" for Donbas

"Putin understands only strength," – Senator McCain on possible "Kissinger plan" for Donbas

Media reports say Henry Kissinger allegedly proposes lifting anti-Russian sanctions. However, the U.S. Congress will approve no action damaging freedom and independence of Ukraine or the Baltics.
As reported by Censor.NET, U.S. Senator John McCain said in an interview with TSN asked whether former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger would become a mediator between Moscow and the United States.

According to media reports, Kissinger allegedly advocates U.S.-Russia rapprochement and lifting of sanctions in exchange for the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Donbas.

However, McCain says he does not believe the Senat would support some agreements that do not guarantee complete independence of Ukraine or other countries in the region. The politician said the Americans had learnt the lesson of the 1930s on how dangerous the agreements with dictators could be.

According to him, the U.S. Congress will approve no action that could harm the freedom and independence of Ukraine or the Baltic states. McCain says the U.S. government supports only the deals aimed at putting an end to the conflict.

However, the senator said his experience with Vladimir Putin showed that the only thing the Russian president understood was strength, which is why the U.S. needed to strengthen the defense capability of Ukraine and the Baltics and provide support for these countries.

"Peace through strength as Reagan once said," McCain summed up.

Russia lets cat out of bag

Donbas rebels say that, as of the fall of 2016, the Russian command let them mention the presence of the Russian troops in Donbas, a closely guarded secret before, journalists Denis Kazansky writes in Facebook Jan. 3.

Before, any mention of the Russian military presence in Donbas by the rebels was strictly punished. Even the Kremlyn-controlled media are open about it now. 

 “The rebel army is under the command of Russian experts [from platoon upwards] and the Russian advisers help manage the Donbas economy. The rebel-held part of Donbas is in fact a Russian soil. Although this status quo cannot be confirmed legally, the locals want that sooner or later the territory be engulfed by Russia,” pro-Kremlin site Ukrayina.ru wrote recently. 

 “I knew the Russians will stop hiding the truth one day. Same as they stopped denying their regulars were involved in the Crimea grab,” Kazansky said.

Donald Trump Casts Doubt on Intelligence Community Over 'So-Called' Russian Hacking

Donald Trump continues to remain indignant about claims that Russia is responsible for cyberassaults on the US, taking to Twitter Tuesday night to reiterate his skepticism.

In a single tweet, Trump questioned the prevailing notion that Russia has been hacking US entities -- despite 17 U.S. intelligence agencies concluding that top Russian officials helped orchestrate cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee and members of Hillary Clinton's campaign -- and he also seemed to question the validity of such agencies overall.

The president-elect tweeted, "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"..............
