US Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham promise to pledged to uphold the US anti-Russian sanctions to restrain Russia's aggression against Ukraine, the press-secretary of President Petro Poroshenko wrote on Facebook.

"I admire your struggle for your homeland. Your struggle is our struggle. Enough of Russian aggression. They have to pay a high price for it. We will return to Washington and uphold sanctions on Russia. This struggle is not again the Russian people but against Putin. I am convinced that you will win and we will help you. The whole world is with you. Putin cannot be allowed to win here, otherwise he win in other countries," Graham said as quoted by Svyatoslav Tsegolko.
