If he met with Putin, McCain said, who had imposed sanctions against him, the first thing the senator would say to the Russian president would be that he was honored to be covered by the sanctions. McCain believes those sanctions are a distinction of honor for his support of the Ukrainians' struggle for independence and freedom. The senator said he would have told Putin that he was on the wrong side of history, for sooner or later his gambles, corruption, and other mess would end, McCain said.
