US Sen. John McCain mocks EU’s Russia sanctions

TALLINN, Estonia — Sen. John McCain of Arizona has dismissed the European
Union’s sanctions on Russia after the crisis in Ukraine as “almost a joke”
during a tour of the Baltic countries.

Speaking in Estonia on Tuesday, McCain said the EU’s sanctions against Russian
individuals were “minimal.”

He also called for “strong, tough American leadership” to shape the West’s
response to Russia’s actions in the Ukraine crisis.

McCain and Sen. John Hoeven of North Dakota are visiting Estonia, Latvia and
Lithuania this week.

The U.S. Embassy in Tallinn said the two Republicans were traveling “in their
capacity as members of the Senate to assess the security situation and explore
ways that the U.S. could offer assistance and assurance to NATO members.”
