As Ukraine calls on United Nations peacekeepers to intervene in a “joint counterterrorist operation” against Russia, the United States and Sen. John McCain reiterated their positions in regards to disbelief of Russia’s self-proclaimed innocence.

The Russian Federation sends special units to the East of our country that conduct armed seizure of the administrative buildings and threaten lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens,” said Oleksandr Turchynov, acting president and chairman of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Legislature), on Monday. “We do not object and even welcome holding of joint counterterrorist operation in the East. Then, experts and observers will be able to witness the legality of our actions themselves.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke on behalf of his country last week, saying, “It’s not Russia that is destabilising Ukraine,” while insisting that “Assertions that Russia has undermined efforts to strengthen partnerships on the European continent do not correspond to the facts. … Russia is doing all it can to promote early stabilisation in Ukraine.” The U.S. Department of State’s Office of the Spokesperson released “10 More False Claims About Ukraine” on Sunday, outlining the “false and dangerous narrative” that are being used “to justify its illegal actions in Ukraine.”
