Sen. Johnson Says Ukraine Trip To Support Protestors
"....I'm certain to confirm what I'm hearing...as we've spoken to their new Prime Minister and other people from Ukraine. Another primary reason is to show a pretty strong and bipartisan level of support of that courage..."
Johnson says on this issue it's important for the country to speak with one voice. Republican McCain and Democratic Senator Christopher Murphy, who is chairman of the Senate's European subcommittee, traveled to Ukraine's capital.. Kiev.. in December. They addressed anti-government demonstrators during protests that helped lead to the ouster of former President Viktor Yanukovich.
