On March 23rd 2015 Congress DeFazio voted with an overwhelming majority of war-mongering Republicans and Democrats to call on President to arm the Kiev junta. First, sending such weapons is a clear violation of the Minsk 2 agreement negotiated between Russia, Kiev junta, Germany, and France. Recall that the Kiev junta was installed by a violent coup - fomented by the US - in Feb 2014 against a democratically elected government.
More importantly, arming the Kiev junta and their neo-Nazi militias will enable them to attack ethnic Russians living in eastern Ukraine in the Donbas and Luhansk regions. An attack of this sort is intended to draw Russia into full out war with the Ukraine and NATO, which Russia has so far resisted. When will the Congressman sponsor a vote to use DIPLOMACY to settle this issue, instead of weapons?
