Democrat Senator Chris Murphy and Republican Senators John McCain and Ron Johnson have included Bulgaria in their Eastern European trip later this week.

They will also make a short stop in Romania and will attend the Wroclaw Global Forum in Poland, as the Bristol Press reports.

Chris Murphy, who is to receive a Medal of Honor by Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski for his work on the Visa Waiver Program, is quoted as saying that Ukraine will be a key issue during the trip.

The three will meet representatives of Parliaments in all three countries and will reaffirm the US commitment to helping Eastern Europe in case of Russian aggression.

Senator McCain, who was a 2008 Republican presidential candidate, is known as one of the most outspoken critics of Russia and one of the staunchest supporters of military measures as a means to solve conflicts.

Their visit to the region comes after US President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that it could set aside USD 1 B to additionally boost its military presence in Europe.

The EU policy was good enough to ensure installation of photovoltaics worth 15 billion plus several billions for windmills…
For which the Bulgarian economy has no resources to pay.. but it is not good enough to protect Europe.
The EU was good to suck 80% of our capable workforce….
Around the EU parliament in Brussels there are 2500 offices of lobbying groups and all the EU parliament members, commissioners and etch are busy each knight at meetings, conferences, dinners etch with the lobbyist
And they can’t see the forest from the trees!!!
They failed to grasp the real dangers and necessities of Europe.
They are guilty 100% for failing to act reasonably to protect Ukraine.
Because EU gave all reasons to Russia to start the current insurgency, which will expand and turn into nightmare.
EU commission pushed Russia to invade Ukraine.
That is what we see from here!!!

And about the vital energy needs of EU?????
About the unity of EU and the problems of its people this same EU officials do not have real incite and act contradictory.
They have to stand their ground.
Are the Interests of USA same as the interests of EU??
Are the Interests of the Islamic Republic of Turkey same as the interests of the EU member states??
They have to protect Europe. It is above us to maneuver between hostile great powers without any support from EU??
Where is EU???
We can be easily destabilized here… because it is what happen around pipelines.
