While on a trip to Ukraine on December 30, <span class="caps">GOP</span> Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham and Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar <a href="" target="_blank">denounced</a> the alleged Russian hacking of Democratic Party email accounts in the run-up to the US presidential election.

Speaking to the US-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in Ukraine, the senators called for tougher sanctions against Russia in response to the allegations.

The senators traveled with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to Shyrokyne, a Baltic sea village in Donetsk Oblast, south of Russian-backed, separatist-held Donetsk, for a photo opportunity with Ukrainian soldiers.

Both <span class="caps">GOP</span> senators <a href="" target="_blank">have said</a> they will work to impose even stronger sanctions against Russia, in contrast to President-elect Trump, who has said the US should <a href="" target="_blank">‘move on’</a> from the issue.

McCain and Graham were both vocal critics of Trump during the campaign, although McCain supported Trump until <a href="" target="_blank">early October reports</a> showed that Trump had made comments in which he <a href="" target="_blank">boasted</a> about sexually assaulting women.
